As much as we love our pets, we have to keep a close eye not to shower them with affection in the wrong form: food they shouldn’t be eating. If we’re following a healthy diet and excluding refined grains because they’re not good for us, why would we give those very same fillers to our dogs and cats?
Shrimp scampi is a protein-packed, flavorful dish that’s been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. To make a paleo-friendly version, simply swap out butter for olive oil and replace the commonly used angel hair pasta with equally satisfying, homemade spaghetti squash noodles. Cooking shrimp with the “shell on” renders a more succulent finished dish–a little messier, but worth every bite!
I stopped into my local vitamin store the other day, and my purchases (whole flax seed, fish oil tablets and raw cacao nibs) prompted a comment from the cashier. “What do you do with all of that?” he asked. We fell into a conversation about diet and nutrition and so on. He mentioned that he’d been having a hard time losing 20 pounds, and when I asked him to describe his nutritional regimen, he said he eats a lot of frozen, pre-made meals. And he wasn’t talking about the better-quality, healthy-food-store-type of meals that do tend to be more on the nutritious side. No. This poor guy eats packaged stuff laden with sodium, hydrogenated oils and who knows what else.
Whether you’re looking for something Paleo suitable for snacky bits to serve guests before dinner or something the little ones can pick at on the go, it’s easy to create healthy snack options requiring nothing other than a pair of hands with which to eat them!
Wait a minute! Didn’t the last Paleoista post mention that there’s an overabundance of Paleo treats? Indeed, that’s true. However, this is not to be confused with the idea of indulging in a special treat, made with natural, unprocessed (and even raw in some cases) Paleo ingredients, once in awhile for special occasions. During the hot summer months, who wants to bake anyway?
Here’s a paleo dish that’s deceptively easy to prepare. Guests will think you’ve spent hours slaving away in the kitchen…but really, you only need about 20 minutes, including prep time! This is a nice, light meal, perfect for the hotter temps as summer approaches.
