After a full day of work, running errands and shuffling kids around, who has the time to prepare a wholesome, nutritious, non-microwaved meal? You do—that’s who! In less time than it would take for you to dial up and wait for restaurant delivery, or make it through a long fast food line, you can serve your family a fantastic meal they’ll not only love but that’s actually good for them, too.
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.
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzos, are hearty legumes that stand up to heat better than many other beans. Enjoy their perfect texture (and the seven grams of protein one half-cup supplies!) in this slightly spicy, tomato-based soup. Sprinkle with crushed blue corn tortilla chips as a gluten-free alternative to croutons!
Russets versus reds: what’s the difference? Starchier and thicker skinned, russet potatoes work well in baked, mashed or fried dishes. New reds, on the other hand, have less starch and paper-thin skin—making them perfect for boiling, steaming or grilling. Try this easy-to-make red potato salad for your next picnic or party. Spuds are boiled and quartered, then tossed with good-for-you Greek yogurt, crunchy celery and fresh herbs. Read more →
Need more omega-3s? Salmon is a tasty way to get them, especially when it’s tossed with tender pasta shells, sweet green peas and a zesty balsamic-Dijon dressing! Use sustainably-caught, Alaskan canned salmon for rich flavor and easy prep. Once the pasta is cooked, just combine what’s left on the ingredients list, chill and serve. Read more →
Serve rice chips with a side of mango salsa for a festive and flavorful snack at your next party! Fresh fruit is cubed and tossed with flax oil and lime, then spiced just slightly with a sprinkling of chili powder and crushed red pepper. This cool-hot combination pairs perfectly with grilled meat or fish, or use it to top tacos, nachos or any of your favorite south-of-the-border dishes.
