A bit rumbly in the tumbly.
I don’t usually envision Pooh when I start with caveman, but there it is.
In an effort to save my life, I’m giving the Paleo diet a shot. Hence the rumbly tumbly bit. It’s only day three of this. Was advised to give it at least thirty days. So I shall. Before and after shots? Sure. Tomorrow. I promise.
In the meantime, some observations…wheat and sugar seem to be in everything. Soy ha been my milk replacement since figuring out I have a lactose thing. Nix on soy and all things legume. This isn’t as hard as when I went vegan, but I have never been so aware of the chemistry of food.
Discovery number one- a can of coconut cream is an amazing thing. Good for anything that cream would be used for. Made a fantastic curry dish and also a version of creamed spinach that was tasty. Also great steamed for my morning latte.
Revelation number two is the existence of almond meal. It functions like flour. Made a crepe using it in combination with coconut cream and eggs. This was the base for the creamed spinach. It hasn’t been bad. I thought I ate plenty. The stomach gurgles anyway.
