Baked pasture-raised chicken legs, apricot glazed carrots, and vegetable medley. After the photo, I put away one chicken leg for tomorrow, and re-filled the plate with veggies (plant-based foods should be at least 70-75% of your plate, animal -based food about 25-30% or less).
Chicken was coated with olive oil and seasoned with fresh rosemary and a bevy of dried spices and herbs: black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, parsley.
The carrots were baked in the same pan as the chicken and glazed with my apricot sauce.
The vegetable medley was left over from yesterday’s omelette.
Din din last night was an organic vegetable medley omelette. Rainbow Chard, Mushrooms, Onions, Garlic, Green Bell Pepper, Red Jalapeño, Red Serrano Peppers, and Black Pepper cooked in Olive Oil. Made with 3 pasture raised eggs.
Paleo Magic Shell! A chocolatey syrup that hardens after topping ice cream. In this case, the chocolate ice cream is just organic frozen banana with organic raw cacao powder, and the magic shell is just more cacao powder mixed in to warm organic coconut butter. The cold temperature of the “ice cream” makes the coconut butter harden! I’ve made the candy shell without the cacao powder before, but you can never have enough chocolate! Ugga-Bugga!
P.S. - No poop comments please. I challenge anyone who thinks this looks like poop to NOT eat every morsel if I made it for you.
You may want to trade your tot’s PB&J for a different sandwich this afternoon. nSpired Natural Foods announced that is recalling more than 40 types of nut butters after learning the jars could be contaminated with salmonella. The US Food and Drug
Luckily for me I’ve been buying my recent organic almond butter from a local farmer, but I have bought many of these brands many times, especially Whole Foods. Is nothing safe unless you make it yourself anymore?
I don’t usually crave turkey, but I was yesterday, so I bought a package of organic turkey breast from Applegate Farms, topped some slices with guacamole (I make mine by taking avocado and mixing it with salsa), and wrapped it in a leaf of romaine. It was all organic, although the turkey was not pasture raised, so they were probably fed some organic corn and organic soy, and it contained a little sea salt too, but after all the crap I ate in NY recently, I think this was a pretty good mini-cheat.
Non-related food question, but can anyone help my friends and I out? The adorable little boy in some of my SamePlate.com commercials was given a few hand-me-down toys recently, and we cannot figure out what this action figure is from! We have exhausted our brains and google searches, so I figured I’d reach out to my readers for help. 42,000 heads are better than one! And if it turns out you know, I’ll throw in a free copy of my eBook as a reward! Thanks in advance for your help! -Cooking Caveman
Referring to my response to the last question, I have no idea if the FDA is right or wrong in their accusations of Julian Bakery. As we all know, I’m no fan of the FDA. All I was saying is Julian’s products are hit and miss with me. In fairness to them though, here is Julian Bakery’s rebuttal letter to the FDA.
Yes, even the Cooking Caveman took the ALS Challenge. Since most of us aren’t Facebook friends, here’s my video.
It’s that time of year again, where I go to NY and devour everything bad (but delicious) for me. No paleo for me in NY, which is why I can’t live there. But it’s nice to visit once and a while and gorge myself on all my childhood favorites.
Carmine’s in the theater district gets a bad rap for being a tourist trap, but the food is fantastic. Family style only, so bring a lot of people, or an enormous appetite. There’s one on the upper west side too, but if I see a matinee, I always stop by Carmine’s for the best baked clams in the city.
Speaking of clams, I had some linguine in white clam sauce from an upper east side neighborhood restaurant with outdoor seating. Don’t even know the name of the place, but in NY, there’s good food on every corner.
Of course I had Wo Hop in Chinatown. Yang Chow War Wonton Soup, roast pork fried rice, and shrimp in lobster sauce. Classic NY Cantonese.
And since Chinatown is right across the street from Little Italy, you have to go to Ferrara’s for dessert. Since 1892.
There were hotdogs devoured, like these from the original Papaya King:
A new place for me was White Manna one of the two places in NJ that claim they invented the slider (the other being White Mana, pretty confusing). I’m glad I went for the history, but it wasn’t cheat worthy.
Mr. Softee Ice Cream!!!! A NY summer institution.
And finally, headed to Brooklyn for my favorite pizzeria, Lenny & John’s on Flatbush Ave. No one makes sausage rolls like these anymore.
Also eaten, but not pictured: The Original Nathan’s in Coney Island (Tasted pretty corporate to me, it lost it’s touch since the old days - no longer cheat worthy), the cheeseburger at JG Melon (best burger I’ve had in NY so far), Katz’s Deli (of course, my favorite restaurant ever), and bagels, bagels, bagels!!!!
Now back to our regularly scheduled paleo diet.

Let’s defy conventional wisdom….
I think this is great news for all us paleo home cooks who have a freezer full of steaks! No more defrosting!
