  • Blissful Pairings



    A while back Mark posted about how to economize on primal meals by thinking in terms of three: a protein, a fat, a vegetable.


    Nudged also by a post Bryan Appleyard (the great British journalist who got me on the primal path last year) made on his blog recently:


    "I have nothing to report other than the fact that, though still adhering to my near zero carb diet, I have discovered that 85 per cent Lindt chocolate smeared with Marscarpone is so delicious that it brings tears to my eyes even to mention it. I have no idea why that came into my head."


    I have two blissful pairings so far that are just as quick & easy for the busy/lazy among us:


    1 Scrambled omelette using coconut oil - will experiment adding coconut milk to see if I can get scrambled egg fluffiness with an even stronger "coconutty" flavor. This is my go-to breakfast on those hectic days when I know I'm not going to get time for a decent lunch.


    2 Instant guacamole: halve a ripe avocado and simply shake whatever strength of Marie Sharp's hot sauce into the crater left by the pit. Give the other half to a loved one to enjoy with you to make it even more of a blissful pairing.


    Any more primal / low-carb marriages in heaven out there?

    Might sound strange, but this weekend I found a certain amount of bliss in genoa salami topped with almond butter.

      Fruit (apples, pears or peaches) fried in bacon drippings. Now there's your happy place. Its a cure for my salty-sweet cravings.

            omg y'all... i hope we have some apples left. Now I'm totally dying to fry some up in bacon grease. *sigh*

            Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

                        I'll second the Apple and Almond butter. Then I'm in the field I take a couple jars and a bag of apples...soooooo delicious. Mashed yams with Unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon too!!!!

                          Oh, god I had to laugh at the OP!


                          Avocado and lime juice.


                          Rum and lime juice.


                          Salsa with added lime juice.


                          I have cooked a lot of eggs in or with coconut oil, but I will have to try the milk! Sounds great.


                          Our neighbor just brought over a bag of mangoes, oh, how cruel! I'm going to have to eat one.....just one.....yeah, that's the ticket. With lime juice....

                            Blissful pairings?


                            Poached undyed smoked haddock with a soft-poached egg on top.


                            Steak with a knob of butter on. Hunter-gatherers never eat meat without plenty of fat for sound reasons -- but it tastes great, too.


                            Roast pork and homemade apple sauce.


                            Peaches and cream. The cream should probably be unpasteurized and soured at home with your own culture for high enzyme content and maximum digestibility.


                            Really good raw unfiltered olive oil with Spanish-type vegetables in a soup -- gazpacho in other words.

                              I have just discovered the power of almond butter.

                              Fresh apricot halves filled with almond butter are just magnificient!
