Back from Summer Holiday the Hungry Caveman is refreshed & ready to cook!Ready-to-eat meals- individually portioned or family-sized, for sharing.
Check out our new menu additions:
A cozy favorite, Stuffed Peppers (okay, “cozy” may not be your first choice on an 27*c (80*f) day, but the rains will come again soon enough)… The first order of business- how to lighten up this meat-filling without the traditional rice? Well, cauliflower rice, of course- it’s easy to make & worked perfectly. Continue reading Tasty Stuffed Peppers
I finally made the chili recipe from that fabulous blog, The Clothes Make the Girl- it is very tasty & I thought I should pass it on. I’m accustomed to chili with big chunks of meat as the base, so at first I hesitated, but there was no reason. It’s saucy & lovely & all of the ingredients are easily available in Prague (yeah!).
When looking for a perfect coleslaw to accompany the pulled pork, I didn’t have to look very far. Cook’s Illustrated has already perfected the recipe & so, unlike most recipes that I inevitably alter to our tastes or our Paleo desires, this one I actually follow (except that I never make just a single batch). It’s straightforward & delicious. Continue reading The Perfect Coleslaw
A nice Czech breakfast typically revolves around bread- bread & cheese; bread & jam; bread with a nice meaty pomazánka- perhaps a kobliha or two picked up at the local bakery on the way to work.
One of the most difficult things to convince people of, when they’re starting to eat Paleo, is the need to give up grains. Grains!! Beloved grains. This is why we were so happy to find Whole Nine’s post about this particularly delicate point: Why We Don’t Eat Grains. Continue reading Fighting Against the Grains
We’ve been finding Brussels Sprouts at the Prague Vegetable market lately (Holešovická Tržnice)- which meant we needed to find the best way to eat them. This seems to be it, as even our 7-year-old thinks they’re delicious.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Garlic
- Brussels Sprouts- one colander full (really, as many as will fit happily in your roasting pan)
- Garlic- 4 or 5 cloves, minced
- Canola or Olive Oil
- Drizzle of Balsamic Vinegar (optional: some people prefer to avoid vinegars, especially Balsamic due to its high sugar content- I love all vinegar & its magical properties & so sometimes have to give in to its temptations)
- salt & pepper (to taste)
Toss Brussels Sprouts with oil & lay them in a single layer in your roasting pan. Spread with minced garlic. Drizzle with Balsamic vinegar. Salt & pepper. Roast approximately 30 minutes @ 200*c (>400*f) – stirring occasionally- until brown & caramelized. Serve warm.
Erin, who visited us in Prague over the holidays (from her much-balmier San Mateo home), is one of us & loves to try out- & create- all sorts of Paleo & Primal recipes. Happily, it didn’t take much to convince her to share some of her culinary adventures with us.
You’ll notice that this first recipe contains something called “Sunbutter”- not terribly easy to find in Prague. With that in mind, I set out to find someone who has created a homemade version (because why shouldn’t we be able to make the things we need??).
This is a little lesson explaining the effects that nutrition and exercise have on each other.
I. Diet modulates weight.
1. Nutrition quality will improve how fast you lose weight (and improve health).
Everything can be derived from these sets of statements. Let’s look at a couple of common examples. Continue reading The Relationship Between Diet & Exercise
