A Paleo observation ...

It's no super-revelation.
But I feel it's a worthy note.

Paleo is simple.

There. I said it. It's just simple.
A little almond flour here. Coconut oil there. Sea salt and baking powder/soda.

I can pretty much put together a tasty entree or baked treat at any point if I have these items on hand, plus some fruit or meat. Btw, if you are shopping well, you have these things on hand :)


Just sayin'.

Example: Banana-Blueberry Muffins (courtesy Dr. Davis, "Wheatbelly")

2 c. almond flour
1/4 c. flaxseed, ground
1/4/c. honey/agave/your choice natural sweetener
1 t. baking powder/soda
1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1/2 fage/sr. cream or coconut/almond milk
1/4 oil, grapeseed, olive, coconut
1 c. blueberries

Preheat to 325-ish*. Combine eggs, sr. cream/milk, oil. Beat in mashed banana. Add in dry ingredients. Fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into greased or cupped muffin tin. Makes 12 muffins (spread evenly between). Bake for approx. 30 mins. Cool for 15mins before removing. Enjoy!!
