  • What is your favorite primal / paleo "junk" food?

    I used to feel deprived all the time when I was eating healthy. Lately I have discovered a few fully paleo compliant "junk food" replacement recipes that have made my diet so much more enjoyable. When I eat them I get all the temporary enjoyment from eating these recipes and afterwards I don't feel guilty, in fact I feel good because I ate healthy food.

    So right now my two favorite recipes are paleo sweet potato fries and also paleo tortilla chips with guacamole. I eat each of these at least once a week.

    Right now I can't wait to discover more primal replacements for junk foods I used to enjoy. Please share any recipes (with links) of your favorite primal or paleo junk foods. I hope to get some good ideas from all of you. I am hoping to get an ice cream maker for Christmas, so I plan to be making paleo ice cream soon. If anyone knows a good replacement for ketchup to put on sweet potato fries, please let me know.

      it depends on the time of year for me...

      summer: coconut milk ice cream
      fall: nuts and nut butters with apples
      winter: greek yogurt, or more nut butters
      spring: see the year round
      year round: pepperoni/salami, olives, cheeses

            Jerky, cheese, macadamia nuts, smoked salmon. Aged salami when it is in the house.

              Tostones fried in coconut oil. Or palm shortening. With salsa and guacamole. And sour cream.

                  I love mixing raw cocoa powder, water, and coconut oil; to make a fantastic fudge substitute.

                  Wayne - if you're interested in some condiments (such as ketchup), there are many sources. I have heard very good things about the book, "Well Fed", which is a paleo cook book; though I'm sure most of us here have heard of it. Also, this website (Homemade Paleo Condiments | Paleo Diet Lifestyle) has several condiment recipes as well. Good luck!

                    Home-made chocolate. 100% coconut oil and cocoa bean, with a dash of honey and, in my case, some nuts and dried fruit.
                    Not only is it Paleo/Primal and not bad for you, it's technically GOOD for you.

                    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

                      I like the sweet potato and banana/cherry brownies from paleomg.com.

                        A brown banana mashed up, stir in a gob of coconut cream, a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder and a splash of vanilla. If I can wait, it goes in the freezer for half an hour or so...topped with home roasted ground hazelnuts, it's to die for.

                          If you still consume dairy and alcohol, you don't necessarily need an ice cream maker:

                          When I made it, I added some frozen cherries and macadamia nuts for some texture. You can probably use coconut cream in place of milk too, I'm not sure how it'll affect flavour though. And if you don't want all that grog, adding sugar also helps to prevent ice crystals forming, but I don't know the ratios.

                            Oh and I love making panna cotta (is that paleo? Cream/coconut cream, gelatin, fruit and sugar) and this coconut chocolate banana pie I found on a blog.

                              So far only thing I really eat that's paleo junk food is Caveman Bakery — Natural and Delicious Gluten-free, Grain Free, Dairy Free Cookies mainly the original, I can't decide if I like or hate the alpine, but the original is a nice little snack I can keep in my drawer at work for the rare days I need some source of energy at work.

                              All it is is honey, almond meal, walnuts, raisins, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.
