Cooking Caveman Glossary Re-posted

I don’t usually re-post this fast, but my followers have doubled since I originally wrote this glossary, and I thought I’d welcome all of you new readers with a little guide to help you navigate through my posts.  Here are some Caveman-isms I use regularly.

"Ugga-Bugga" - When something is good.  Could mean something was/is/looks delicious, or just a happy exclamation because someone successfully made one of my recipes!

"Ugga-Fugga" - Not so good.  Something went wrong somewhere.

"Cave-hole" - Sometimes the caveman gets too preachy, or pretentious, and this moniker brings him back down to earth.

"All Ingredients, All Organic, All the Time" - All of my recipes, all of the time.  I feel paleo starts and stops with going chemical free, which means organic.  Even fruits with thick skins that people don’t feel need to be organic are still grown with synthetic fertilizers and plant food.

"Lazy Bastards" - My readers who won’t bother clicking the link I provided to look up the recipes for themselves.  Also, paleo followers who are too lazy to make their own ketchup, and other condiments, side dishes, etc.  Also, all Anonymous readers (also known as Anons).  Also, me, when I just can’t cook another night in a row!!!!  This is why I have my local pizza place on speed dial.

"Former Fat Bastards" - What you will be if you go strict paleo for a month.  I’m a perfect example of being a former fat bastard.  In fact, I didn’t even realize I was a fat bastard until I went paleo, and lost 25 pounds that I didn’t know I had to lose.  It literally melted off!

"Bastard" (in general) - Everyone else.

"Cheat Meal" or "Cheat Night" - See: This is why I have my local pizza place on speed dial.  In a world full of temptation, sometimes you have to have a little of the old food just to keep yourself sane (and to make you realize how good you feel when you eat 100% paleo)

"Mini-cheat" - When your meal is almost paleo.  Like when I make guacamole, but I want some organic salt-free corn chips from Trader Joe’s to go with it.

"Dieting Does Not Mean Deprivation" - My mantra.  Just because you stopped eating a lot of your favorite dishes, doesn’t mean you can’t recreate them using a paleo-fied recipe.  Never stop experimenting with paleo food.  Because I’m always tinkering in the kitchen, I enjoy so many paleo dishes that no one would ever imagine could be paleo, like pie, “pasta (using zucchini),” “ice cream (using frozen bananas),” gluten-free bread (using almond butter), “rice (using cauliflower),” “potatoes (using root veggies),” and so much more.  Check out my free recipes page HERE before I get wise and publish a cook book (leaving all you lazy bastards in the lurch!).

"Holy Cave-shit!" - See: Ugga-Bugga, but more surprised something came out as well as it did.

"Hey, Health Isn’t For Everyone" - My response to someone when they argue with me against the benefits of paleo.

"My Caveman Minions" - All my paleo followers who will one day take over the world, one grain at a time!

"Captain Caveman" and "Cavey" and "Cave Dude" - Nicknames provided by some of my favorite followers (MelsRealitySayHelloToCindy, and AngiesLife) that make the old caveman feel like a superhero.

"Anime" - A style of Japanese animation that I’m sort of famous for as a producer/writer/director/actor.  Shows like Digimon, Naruto, Trigun, among many others.  If you’re interested, look me up on IMDB yourselves, you lazy bastards.

SamePlate.com - The on-line dating site that matches people through the food and diet they eat!  Launched by the caveman on June 1, 2012.  I’m on there too, hoping to find a local cavegirl.  But it’s great for anyone on any kind of diet, Weight Watchers, Atkins, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, Primal, Paleo, Peanut Allergy, and the rest.  Even if you’re a sushi, burger, pizza, or fast food lover, or even a picky eater and you’re looking for someone who eats the same way.  Because what’s the first thing you do when you meet someone and start dating?  You share a meal together!  It’s 100% free, and there’s none of the pressures of dating, just start a conversation about food!  We still need beta testers, so please sign-up today!  Must be 18 or older, USA and Canada only (for now!).

Cooking Caveman Glossary

As my follower total sprints past 8,000 (thanks again to the tumblr spotlight for turning my blog on to so many new readers), I feel the need to explain a lot of the Caveman-isms used here regularly.

"Ugga-Bugga" - When something is good.  Could mean something was/is/looks delicious, or just a happy exclamation because someone successfully made one of my recipes!

"Ugga-Fugga" - Not so good.  Something went wrong somewhere.

walkrunlose asked: I LOVE your idea of using cauliflower & courgettes instead of rice and pasta, but I don't like either of those veggies. I was wondering if you had any other suggestions? Are there any other veggies you'd think would work? As part of my healthy eating I try not to eat carbs for dinner, you see, so the prospect of finding something to replace rice or pasta while retaining the feel/look of them is super exciting! (also, omg I love Digimon)

Hi there, Digi-Fan!  Yes, there were many experiments before some fellow tumblrs turned me onto cauliflower rice, and before I found out about zucchini noodles (courgettes are zucchini, folks).  Here are some of my earlier experiments for you.  Good luck!
