Paleo Table - Paleo Candied Pecans. I first had this yummy treat at a book club meeting when my non-paleo friend, Elaine, very thoughtfully researched and made this recipe.

Paleo Table - Paleo Candied Pecans

When I tasted them, I really thought she was lying that they were paleo. I went home and checked out the recipe to be sure. Sure enough, these are a paleo treat. They contain honey, and so they should be saved for special occasions. And beware, because they are totally addictive. Adapted from Paleo Cinnamon Coconut Breakfast Bowl. I have long been intrigued by the quinoa breakfast bowl recipes I have seen on Pinterest, but considering I have been trying to lower the amount of grains in my diet, I never got around to trying one out.

Paleo Cinnamon Coconut Breakfast Bowl

As of late, I’ve been guilty of eating more than I should when it comes to quinoa, millet, buckwheat, etc., so I decided to back off a bit and revert to my standard diet of mainly fruit, veggies and the occasional lean meat for dinner. While I do love a hearty breakfast, I feel so weighed down after a bowl of oatmeal that I almost feel as if I could get back in bed. Obviously, this is not a great way to start the day, so it’s a rare occasion where I’ll have grains for breakfast, but I can’t say that I don’t miss the comfort you get from a bowl of oatmeal.

Sugar-Free Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream

I’ve been on an anti-sugar dessert kick. Combined with my recent coconut obsession, this can only lead to one logical thing: sugar-free coconut vanilla ice cream. Roasted eggplant and garlic salad.

Homemade Herbed Paleo Mayonnaise. I’ll be honest with you guys.

Homemade Herbed Paleo Mayonnaise

Up until this point, mayonnaise has always kind of creeped me out. It always stood out to me as the most fattening condiment I could add to my food, and whether or not that’s the case (it probably isn’t), I avoided it for years. Making my own mayo has changed the way I view it completely. I always feel better eating food and condiments that I make from scratch, because I know that there are no hidden ingredients. It’s really satisfying to eat something that has such a bad rap (cough cough mayo), and know that I’m eating pure ingredients that are going to treat my body nicely.

Much of what gets called Tabbouleh bears little resemblance to what Lebanese Tabbouleh is. When I moved to France and began eating in traditional Lebanese restaurants, I was served bowls heaped with fresh herbs, a few tomato chunks, and very, very few bits of bulgur (cracked wheat.) Unlike what is served as Tabbouleh in many places – which is often a bowl heaped with bulgur with a few tomatoes and bits of parsley and mint flecks in it – the cracked wheat is meant to be more of a garnish, and I’ve come to love traditional Lebanese Tabbouleh, which is a green, herbal salad with a touch of spices.
