If you read my Beefy Mexican Lasagna post, you saw I started the Paleo thing. I decided I’m going to share with you what I ate.
If you don’t like it, no worries, I’ll be posting regular recipes too.
Except this. I had to take a Paleo sabbatical over the weekend for BlogHer Food (recap coming soon), so Sunday night I made Thai Coconut Rice Pudding.
You know, just to REALLY blow Paleo out of the water.
Do y’all like Thai food? I love it. And hopefully, *fingers crossed* I’ll be going to Thailand summer of 2014 for a family wedding!
I’m a good saver, I can do it.
Thai Coconut Rice Pudding is made from a black rice grain, really dark purple, called “Forbidden Rice.”

~ Oooh, I’m interested already.~
Cook it, add full fat coconut milk from a can and sugar.
BOOM. Thai Coconut Rice Pudding. Apparently in Thailand, they often eat this for breakfast.
It’s soooo goood y’all! A bit of a step away from my granny’s rice pudding. I used the Epicurious recipe, wouldn’t change a thing.
Serve it warm.
Ok, back to Paleo.
Breakfast: Poached eggs and pesto.
The pesto is a recipe from the Practical Paleo cookbook, I seriously love this book.
Have you ever poached eggs in the microwave? My new favorite shortcut!
I microwave 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon vinegar for 2 minutes.
Crack in 2 eggs, and add to the hot water.
Cover with a plate, and microwave for 1 minute more.
Perfection! The whites are slightly loose, but way quicker than the stovetop version.
Lunch/Dinner: Spaghetti on spaghetti squash
Ever cooked spaghetti squash? New easy tip I just learned. Poke a bunch of holes with a fork or knife, and microwave the sucker for 10 minutes. WAY easier than trying to cut it in half without removing my thumb (gosh I sure like my thumbs) and way quicker.
And way easier than heating up my whole 900 sq foot house in the summer with the oven on!
Microwave the heck out of it, cut it in half (you’ll need hot pads), throw away the seeds, and scrape the inside with a fork.
Yeah, it’s a little different, but all I can tell you is that I’ve been feeling GREAT – when I actually follow the plan with no grains, sugar, and dairy.
Sugar seems to be the biggest problem causer for me at the moment.
Anyways, then I just cooked up hamburger meat and added a jar of all natural spaghetti sauce.
True paleo would be homemade, but hey, I’m getting back on the Paleo train after a crazy weekend.
I’ve signed up for eMeals and absolutely, whole heartedly love it. No, they don’t know I’m writing this, it’s not a sponsored post for them, I just really love it! They have all different meal plans: meals for 2, diabetic, clean eating, paleo, classic meals, low-fat, and on and on.
I paid $21 for 3 months of recipes. Every Wednesday they email you a week of recipes.
Here’s the cool part:
It comes with a shopping list! That’s the most annoying part for me.
Even cooler? There’s an app! I open the app and there are my meals, for this week and past weeks, and a shopping list to check off which items I’ll need for those meals.
Then the recipes are mine to keep!
