Cooking Club was yesterday - and I was the hostess.
My turn! My turn to turn my friends onto the wonderful world of paleo - or as we like to say 'eating like a caveman'.
I had the fleeting thought of building a fire in the yard, and as each guest arrived, handing them a bow and arrow, saying 'Have at it! You catch it, you eat it - oh, and by the way - I do believe the dandelions are up now in case you are hankerin' for a salad."
But I just had a feeling that wouldn't go over with this crowd.
In fact, I even gave them forks, knives, and plates.
This is some high falutin' primal eating.
Isn't this table that Glenco made for me awesome?
It cost us $3.
All we had to buy were some screws.
The lumber was 'reclaimed' from a dumpster.
That Glenco - he's worth his salt.
I really had fun with the tablescape.
Nothing like walking around the yard finding things to slap on the table.
The food was extremely delicious.
Please know that this is not a way that I eat every day - nor do I suggest that this is 'healthy'.
It's much higher in fat than I eat, or suggest eating.
But if you are looking for something that is non-allergenic, something that will sway you into getting away from grains and dairy - something that you want to use to 'celebrate' a certain event - I'd endorse it then.
Except for the cake.
Bacon wrapped dates.
Chicken with a Mushroom Sauce
Caveman Biscuits (made with coconut and almond flour)
Dessert was stretching things a bit - but it was Cooking Club after all.
A flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberries.
The meal was higher in fat than I typically eat, but it was a nice treat.
I took all the recipes from this cookbook:
Here's their website
I truly hope that you are either:
A. Changing what you feed yourself
B. Seriously thinking and planning on changing what you feed yourself
C. Getting a really good health insurance plan
I just watched this documentary online, and it was worth every minute.
VERY eye-opening, and if it doesn't motivate you to change, I'm not sure what will.
It's free online until March 31st.
Please take the time out to give it a look see.
Life is too short to eat crap, feel like crap, and look like crap.
Take care of yourself.
No one else is gonna do it for you.
