High Calorie Smoothie
2 servings

1 can coconut milk (I use Thai Kitchen's organic)
1 bag organic frozen raspberries (or frozen cherries)
1 tbsp organic cocoa powder (Trader Joes sells this)
1 packet of stevia if needed

Put it all in a blender and mix until frothy. I've made it both with and without the stevia. Depends on how sweet the rapsberries are and whether or not you like tart flavors.

This is great if you're having trouble getting enough calories.

Made this with dinner and it was excellent:
http://www.recipezaar.com/211995 Grilled Eggplant in Honey and Spices

suggested changes: use a lot more olive oil than it says, cut the honey to 1-2T instead of 5. oh, and "harissa" is hot sauce

Default Cheeze Sauce (no dairy)

K, I don't think this is officially paleo! But it's nice. I've had it on veggies and really like it. I do the soak/dry thing on the cashews first.

Makes about 60 Tbsp, serving is 4Tbsp (2 frozen cubes)
1 3/4 cups cashews
2 cups water
4 oz pimento
3 tbs nutritional yeast flakes
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
3 tbs lemon juice

Whiz together really, really well til smooth. Let sit in fridge overnight, better the next day. Can be frozen also in ice cube trays (this is how I store it). Keeps in fridge 7-10 days. Not cheese, but has a nice tang! Could add jalepenos or something to make a nacho-cheezey thing.

MAYONNAISE
-------------

1 large egg
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbl raw apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup light olive oil (I guess you can use extra virgin, but your mayo will probably be yellow/green and taste very olive-y)

Whiz everything but the oil in the food processor for 30 seconds. Then while the motor's still running start adding the oil - but BE CAREFUL. At first, only put it in 1-2 drops at a time. After you've got 10 drops in there, start pouring it in by the 1/2 teaspoon. Then by the tablespoon. And finally when you have a little less than 1/2 cup of the oil left, you can start just pouring it in in a thin stream. This made a thick creamy mayo that I was licking off of the food processor blades.

I was stupidly excited when I made this today...ask my DH...I was shoving the jar of wiggling mayo in his face and going "LOOK! It was like MAGIC! HOLY CRAP!"

It takes a mountain to move some people. Others are excited by their own backyard, as well as a mountain.

I've been eating Duke's mayonnaise, and I pity those who have never tasted it's southern delicacy. It contains no sugar, but I've sure it has all the other vices that ordinary mayonnaise has.

I want to try your recipe. As soon as I get over my irrational fear of eating raw eggs!

Default Paleo parfait

I recently achieved my 25% weightloss milestone. I was thinking the other day that I should try to mark the occasion in some way (Kallyn, I was thinking of your birthday cake question...)

Should I "fast" on the occasion? Eat something totally shameful? Do nothing?

What I decided to do was a compromise: make my own "paleo" dessert; hike 7 miles, and; try my first formal fast. Anyway, here's the dessert I made.

Paleo Parfait

Layer in a parfait dish (or beer mug!) the following ingredients, anyway you wish:

-Almond butter
-Raw nuts (pine nuts, almonds, and walnuts are my staple)
-Local honey
-Fresh berries (I used strawberries and blackberries)

I may try experimenting in the future with different nut butters and naturally dried fruit.

I tell you, I enjoyed this dessert as much as I ever have any dessert. I know that sounds crazy, but as I'm sure everyone knows here, going without refined foods and sugar really sensitizes those taste buds.

(BTW, I've got the hike and dessert behind me. Still planning the fast.)

hey congratulations and go-for-it proteus! one milestone down and you are in the swing for knocking down the rest!

about eating something totally shameful, and this also relates to nelson's recent thread about eating some chocolates that turned up in the work-place, i had this recent experience. i had pretty clean paleo eating for quite a while. last weekend i went to a steak restaurant which seemed like a good paleo choice but i somehow (without any advance plan to do this) had a beer, bread & wine with the meal, and a chocolate dessert. it had a terrible result, i even missed a work-day last week. i am just about back to normal now.

well not everyone is me and would have that reaction, but i think the more paleo that i eat, the more sensitized i am to non-paleo food. that experience really might be the one that stops me from ever 'treating' myself again!

Thai Beef Salad

1 Lb beef, thinly sliced (sukiyaki style)
1/2 C coarsely chopped mint leaves
1/4-1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
1/4 C finely chopped onion (I used green onion)
2 Green onions, coarsely chopped

Dressing
Juice of 1 lime
2 T. of fish sauce
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (I didn't use this)
1 Tb of chili Sauce (I used Sabul Olek, you could probably use Siracha or another asian chili sauce)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp of sweetener (I used splenda)


Garnishes (optional)
Chopped chilis (the sort that aren't too hot)
Chopped peanuts

Cut the sliced beef into 2x3 inch pieces. Place the meat in a slotted spoon or small colander and dip it into boiling water for about 1 minute, medium rare. Allow meat to drain and cool.
You could also use cold leftover roast beef instead.

I put the meat into a zip lock bag with the dressing after cooking to marinade and laid it flat so the juices would soak into all the meat. I turned after awhile.

I ate mine with a few chopped cherry tomotoes.

Absolutely fabulous!

When I made this yesterday, I also threw in a handfull of chopped walnuts. Next time I plan to add dried cherries or apricots.

This is a pretty substantial hunk of food if you're counting calories, but it makes a quick and filling breakfast and freezes well.

I bought a small tub (about 1 cup total) of dried, unsweetened cherries over the weekend. They are EXPENSIVE. Set me back $10 (the sweetened kind were half the price - go figure). I plan to go picking (literally) in Western NC as soon as the crop becomes available.

Wow, I'm surprised you found unsweetened ones. I never have seen them.
