Many Monkeys have gone Primal and are doing some variation of the Paleo lifestyle, so I thought we should have a thread featuring our own recipes and Paleo tweeks. PLEASE DON'T CUT AND PASTE FROM THE INTERNET For me, I still do dairy because I can't live without a morning double shot latte and I love Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Monterey Jack, Colby, Blue, Goat, Gouda, you get the point. I'd love to find them all from grass fed sources, but that is not an option with the limited shopping choices I have here. I have begun to cut bread and wheat flour from the recipes I make and figured others who have gone Primal have done the same things. So, here it is. A thread dedicated to Primal/Paleo recipes.... I like sandwiches, but have cut out the bread, so.... Lettuce Wrapped sandwiches have taken breads place around my favorite foods. The BLT Pretty simple, really. Select a large vine ripened tomato, preferably from a farmer's market and organic. Peal off an Iceberg, Butter or Romaine lettuce leaf (same source if possible). Thick slice the tomato, then cut into wide juliennes slightly larger than the width of your index finger. Crisp up your favorite bacon and round up some Mayo. Best Foods adds sugar (go figure), but I want to try some home made Paleo Mayo. Smear some Mayo (about 1/2 Tbsp.) onto the lettuce leaf. If you are using Butter Lettuce you may want to reduce the amount of Mayo. Lay in three slices or more of bacon and four of the julienned tomato and gather the lettuce leaf around the treasure. On a plate with some sliced fresh fruit, Apples, Peaches, Nectarines, quartered Oranges, or wedges of Tangerines. I do Iced tea with a lemon twist for a beverage. And.... That's lunch!
