Grilled Prawns, Vietnamese Pork Patties, Avocado on Organic Baby Kale Salad mix
Roasted Eggplant and Zucchini.
Since going GF, I thought I had it hard. Then a few weeks ago when my GP said that I should avoid those simple carbs and suggested upping the cardio to 4 times a week because of my whacky hormone levels (due to Hashi's, cycling hyper and hypothyroidism)...to regulate my insulin levels, he cautioned me that my baking may have to be put on the back-burner for a while. He told me to give it a go for a month.
Well, I've stuck to it. I'm running (outside even!) and doing strength-training and I feel good. Still GF primarily but the other day when the kids had roasted corn and were all telling me how sweet it was, I resisted! It's certainly GF, but it isn't Paleo as it's a grain.
The bbq is my friend...and so is olive oil and coconuts! The Vietnamese Grilled Pork I made is an adaptation of my favourite meal: Grilled meat and veggies on rice vermicelli (called "bun")...minus the vermicelli of course. I just grabbed a bag of organic greens, chunked up an avocado and topped it with the grilled meats and seafood. For the nuoc cham, I used freshly squeezed lime juice and fish sauce (diluted with water) and a touch of honey. The veggies were grilled simply with olive oil. The meal was very yummy and it'll be one I'll repeat again and again. So this meal was delicious, GF and Paleo friendly!
Working up my nerve to make a Paleo dessert with dried fruit, coconut and whatnot. Still debating on what that would be like. Thinking I need chocolate so maybe a brownie of some sort? Will keep you posted!
