Some of the #LCHF #Primal Food I Ate in June 2019

I go to this Thai Restaurant every now and then and have pretty much the same thing. I start out with a salad. Since they don’t have traditional salad dressings they put peanut sauce on the salad. That’s not 100% OK because peanuts are actually a legume and they’re not all that good for the gut, but every now and then they’re OK if you can handle it. I then have the Crispy Shrimp with a medium red curry sauce and vegetables with white rice. The breading on the shrimp probably has cornstarch in it or some other starch, so that’s not the best. The curry sauce and vegetables are OK, but the rice is not recommended. I don’t eat much of the rice. All in all, not the best meal to eat out, but I invoke the 80/20 rule! So there!

Who doesn’t love sauteed red onion and mushrooms?

I made a batch of Oopsie Rolls so I could have a lchf “bread” bun for sandwiches!

My first “sandwich” was a Egg Salad Sandwich.

Sauteed Shrimp with Herbed Cauliflower Rice!

A sandwich with salami, cheese, greens and Primal Mayo. Pickles are good!

Another sandwich! This one is my favorite Breakfast Sandwich with sausage, cheese and egg!

I want my baby back, baby back, baby back, RIBS! These were the Best Ribs Ever!

Ribs with just a little more sauce. Make sure its a low sugar BBQ sauce. Broccoli is ALWAYS a good choice!

Another one of my favorite breakfast sandwiches.

Another salami sandwich, this time with raw organic beet and cabbage kraut! Fermented foods are ALWAYS a good choice.

Man o’ man! I guess I really like those breakfast sandwiches!

I made some Chicken Liver Pate. Guests coming over! Use crackers made with almond flour for dipping.

I made a “Liver Sausage Sandwich” using my pate!

Made some Cauliflower “Mac and Cheese” as a side dish for my Lake Perch that I sauteed.

I buy Lake Perch Fillets and other fish from a company called walleyedirect.com Watch out for those shipping costs! In the summer time I have them ship over night mainly because I’m in hot Arizona. But in the winter time, 2 day ship would be ok. Just make sure its all frozen solid when you open the box. The dry ice works pretty well. (Haven’t had a problem… yet!)

Sauteed Lake Perch, above. Below, Cauliflower Mac and Cheese redone a couple days later in the air fryer. Eat your leftovers!

I eat a lot of bacon and eggs. Make sure you take a Fish Oil pill to get your Omega 3s and 6s in balance!

I’m making a nacho type mixture above. Once I wilt the vegetables, I’ll add Organic Ground Beef and some salsa from Costco and spice it with cumin, coriander, chili powder and cilantro.

Had my Nacho Meat mixture with eggs for breakfast.

Wife gave me fresh peas from her garden, so we had a little Asian Stir Fry. I used some canned bamboo shoots and I did use a little of my nacho meat mixture, so it was a little Asian Mex Fusion! Don’t be afraid to experiment and play with your food!

I had some ripe avocados that I had to use before they went bad. So I made a batch of guacamole with them, then scooped it out with an ice cream scoop and placed them on a baking sheet which I then put in the freezer. Once frozen, I put the little guacamole balls in a container and saved them in the freezer. I use them to thicken up smoothies! I like that… no waste!

That’s a good Polish sausage I got from Costco. I heated it up in my air fryer and served it with some organic, raw beets and cabbage kraut, also from Costco. Here’s a pic of the Polish Sausage pack.

Yep, more bacon and eggs!

Yep, more Lake Perch. This time with Asparagus.

Crab legs with asparagus and melted butter. It seems lately that every time my wife and I go to Costco we get one serving each of crab legs. They are good! Cost for that crab leg up above is about $13. So we get two of those for about $27. Lots of meat. My wife usually doesn’t finish hers and has a second meal from it. If I had any self control, I would do that too!

Quick Sandwich #1

Salami Sandwich

If you have some good Primal sandwich ingredients laying around you can make a sandwich in less than a minute. Anyone can make a sandwich! Right? This one is going to be a salami sandwich because that’s what I got laying around. I also had made a batch of oopsie rolls the day before, so I had my “bread” all set to go!

Everybody knows how to make a sandwich, but this one is a good Primal sandwich. No normal breads made with wheat flour. Mayonnaise made with avocado oil instead of the dreaded canola oil or soybean oil. Its low carb high fat, no grains, no gluten which is unlike any other “normal” sandwich. My blood sugar didn’t budge at all after eating this! And I stayed in Ketosis!

Lots of sandwiches can be made with leftover ingredients. Just make sure you stay Primal. If you’re Paleo, no dairy products! You can use oopsie rolls as the bread in just about any kind of Primal sandwich. Make a batch and keep them in the fridge.  There even good as burger buns! Cheese sandwiches, fish sandwiches, southwest chicken sandwiches, etc, etc. I even made some Reubens!

I love this mayo

Food for Thought – Leftovers and Bone Broth

Food for Thought – Leftovers and Bone Broth

I hate throwing food out. Food is money, especially the organic, farm raised stuff. If I cook a whole chicken, when I’m finished eating, I take the meat off the bones and save it for meals later in the week. If I’m feeling industrious, I take the bones and make bone broth by simmering them with carrots, onion and celery. A little dash of apple cider vinegar in the broth as its cooking helps extract the minerals out of the bones. You can then eat the resultant broth on days when you fast! When I do this I take my supplements because I hate taking pills on an empty stomach. You can do this with any kind of bones from beef and chicken to duck and lamb, even fish! My favorite is making oxtail soup and cooking them down so they fall apart. The leftover broth will be loaded with collagen and after you refrigerate it, it looks like beef jello! This is chicken bone broth. When you strain the solids out of the broth be sure to press down on the solids while they’re in the strainer to get the juice out of the solids. It will make your broth a little cloudy, but it will have lots more flavor!
