In the Kitchen

You do not have to cook to be paleo.

A lot of the time, I don't bother.  My go-to meal is grilled chicken breasts (grilled by others, sliced into approx. 4 oz portions by moi), cut up peppers (this part I do, largely because no one sells organic peppers pre-sliced) and some (read: 10)  olives.  Occasionally, I'll sauté some spinach.  (Or buy some pre-sauteed)  Done.  I can eat this a lot.  

But, when lawyering doesn't get in the way, I actually do prefer my own cooking.  Last Sunday, I cooked up a bunch of Livin Paleo's baked chicken fajitas.  (I left out the cumin because I didn't have any.  Also, I baked for an extra 10 minutes.)  That night, I ate it with some cauliflower rice (made my moi) and guac (made by Fairway).  

Voila: Mexican paleo.

The next morning, I scooped some into my eggs for a Mexican scramble.  

Being paleo does mean eating a lot of eggs for breakfast.  Or chicken.  I made a batch of "egg muffins" this past week to save time in the mornings.  They were very convenient, but not my favorite flavor-wise.  I'm going to have to play with the ingredients a bit.  

Also on my menu this week were hazelnut chicken tenders.  (Cut slices of chicken, dip in egg, roll in hazelnut flour, bake at 350 for 15 minutes).  These were yummy, but I will probably try this recipe next.
