  • Anyone know easy and simple recipes?

    Hey guys,
    Im totally new and have been trying my best to be primal. Usually eating veg with meat, and salads with fruit for breakfast. But my diet is limited, like carrots and pumkin with chicken for eg. So does anyone know some simple recies I can try.
    Ive tried some recipes before, but usually I need a food processor, some herb that costs a lot but I only need a pinch of or a long list of ingredients!
    Can someone help me out and tell me some easy and simple no fuss rcpipes?
    Thanks,
    J

    I normally just grill meat, poultry, or fish in butter in a pan, cover for a few minutes, and serve with steamed vegetables (broccoli, carrots, rutabagas, squash, peppers, cabbage, and spinach are favorites).

      I do almost the same thing except I chop everything up into small pieces and stir fry it. Meat/protein + veggies + fat for frying + frying pan + heat = meal.

        Ground beef fried up with minced veg is always easy, and season it however you like. Tonight I threw in some onion and garlic (always), red pepper and mushrooms. Salt and pepper, some thyme, paprika, red pepper flakes and a few dashes of worcestershire. Added some broth to make it saucy, simmered it down and had some over rice. Easy peasy.

          Different approach here, I tend to layer everything (starchy veg, green veg, meat, seasoning) in a baking dish, cover and stick in the oven for a couple of hours on 150C.

          For example:

          Carrots, brussells sprouts, pork chops. Season with garlic or chilli.
          Kumara, onion, chicken drumsticks or thighs. Season with thyme or cumin.
          Potatoes, leeks, lamb chops. Season with rosemary or mint.

          See, you just ring the changes and end up with variety. Check my journal out for more ideas if you like.

            Grilled Chicken! Today I did: 1 Jalapeno, juice of one lemon, 1 tbsp oregano, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tbsp olive oil in my magic bullet. Coat dem chickies and marinade (overnight is best!). Or the easiest go-to chicken would just be grilled with some garlic and rosemary. I've become quite fond of cumin as well, and if you're a fan of cabbage:
            Cabbage Stir-fry

            1/2 head of cabbage
            1/2 white onion
            1 zucchini
            1 tsp. coconut oil
            1 tbsp. shredded coconut
            1 tsp. cumin
            1 tsp. red pepper flakes
            black pepper to taste

            Saute vegetables until onions translucent, then add the spices and coconut. Continue cooking until coconut turns golden.

            You can even add some shrimp in there,

              I've never needed a food processor. Does that also mean that you don't want to cut up vegetables on a board?

              I think the most basic 'one pot' meal to learn to cook is a stir fry. Since everything takes slightly different times to cook, you can easily prepare the veges while it's cooking.

              Order to put things in the pan:
              Lard
              Onion
              Carrots
              Garlic
              Beef Mince (plus other spices here. feel free to experiment with small amounts of some or all of the following: ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, tumeric, basil, oregano, cumin, coriander, chilli, lime, sesame seeds)
              Mushrooms / Capsicums / courgettes
              Leafy greens

              Stir it periodically so that it cooks relatively evenly and doesn't burn onto the bottom.

              When you dish it up, feel free to add other things like lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, olives, salt and pepper etc that are nicer raw than cooked.
              Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                I am able to have the same breakfast every day. A sort of omelette. Butter or coconut oil in small frying pan. Cut up 4oz mushrooms or wash large handful of spinach. Switch on heat under pan and whip up two large eggs with some ground black pepper to taste. Put the mushrooms or spinach in the pan when the butter has melted. Stir and start cooking. When spinach has wilted down or mushrooms nearly cooked, add the eggs. I use a spatula to shift the eggs about a bit so as to cook them more quickly. When solid, lob on a plate and eat. No fuss.

                Lunch:- Roast chicken thighs/tin of mackerel or herring on plate with tomatoes, celery, radishes, cucumber, sauerkraut and pickled red cabbage.

                Dinner:- Butter or coconut oil in a large frying pan. Add chopped bacon, onions and whatever greens you fancy. When they are going well, add liver and cook to taste.

                These are my favourites and no doubt you will get plenty more from others here.

                    I made a quick chicken stew for today and tomorrow. I'm VL calories as well as lo carb though. i took 250g chicken, 100g peas,100g onions, 80g parsnip.120g carrots, 100g swede(rutabaga) 80g leek, chopped the meat and veg into a fairly small dice add a little fat.stir fry the onion till just browning, tip in all the veggies except the leek and peas ,stir fry till the veggies are just tender and starting to brown, tip in chicken and leeks, stir fry till all surfaces of the chicken are sealed and staring to brown. dissolve 1 chicken stock cube in a pint of water and add to the pan, tip in the peas bring to the boil then simmer for 20 minutes, thicken if you like (i don't bother). stir frying the veggies till browning makes the taste kind of sweet, and nothing goes mushy. you can add whatever spices you like. each half portion is 38 carbs. real comfort food
                    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
                    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

                      A great - and cheap - protein bomb which is very satisfying mid afternoon or late evening is simply to open a small can of sardines, I like the ones in tomato sauce, and empty into a bowl along with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, or coconut oil, and just eat with a spoon. You feel like you have had a full dinner afterwards. Makes a great breakfast as well, followed by a piece of fruit such as a quarter canteloupe or even a couple of nice ripe tomatoes quartered and mixed in.

                      Sardines tend to be a bit salty so I only have them three times a week.

                        Poached chicken and salmon alongside some steamed veggies. Poach in simmering water for about 20 minutes, veggies over the top in a steamer pan. Simple.

                          This is what I do too. Sometimes I use leftover veges from the night before instead of preparing fresh, you can even try to make sure you cook enough for this purpose.

                          Another variation is to use cooked starchy veg such as kumara or potato or pumpkin, mash it and blend in the eggs then cook it as a hash brown/fritter and grill some bacon to go with it.

                            one thing I do quite often: fresh mackerel filets fried a la Mark Sisson, easy, quick and delicious!! You can eat them just like that or with a salad of your choice. I usually have them as a main dish, with or without a side veggie / salad, at least once a week, sometimes twice.

                              Lamb shanks cut in 1/3 by your butcher
                              1 tin of tomatoes
                              2 onions
                              Garlic
                              Brown onion and garlic in coconut oil for a generous 5 minutes ( don't shortcut this step it's the base that gives the flavour)
                              Season lamb shanks with salt and pepper and add to onion and garlic
                              Brown shanks evenly on all sides
                              Add tinned tomatoes
                              Cover and simmer (the longer the better)
                              ENJOY!!!
