    I can't not post last nights dinner. Clam stuffed with salmon, coconut flour, challots, and peppers; shrimp, and Sushi made with the same stuffing as the clams + red peppers, wrapped in seaweed and cauliflower rice.



    Things are a bit better today. Seems to be a combinations of some new stressers and those stressers affecting when I eat and how well I sleep.

    Glad it's a bit better today. Sometimes life throws us for a loop.

    Yep, and if it doesn't throw us for a loop, we manage to do the throwing!

    Love your picture. Food looks very yummy. So, do your roomates eat all the super food you make before you do? I mean, how do they stand not wanting to eat everything you do?

    It's a good sign you're cooking delicious meals. BTW, did you see my question to you re asafoetida? Just curious whether any of the cooks in your family use it and what for.

    My family leans more towards use of cumin, coriander, curry, garlic, and onion. Asafoetida has never really been a part of our spice rack. Can't really give an opinion on it since I haven't cooked with it in forever. I may pick up a jar though at some point and give it a proper review.

    Does your mom cook lentils and beans a lot? Sure glad I saw your post. Forgot to put coriander on my list! I'm thinking I can use a lot of your recipes (not last night's) and use beans instead of meat. I'm having kitchari for lunch. Can't wait.

    Mom cooks a lot of lentals and fava beans even now. My fave was always her lentil soup (that up until paleo I had made quite often myself)

    Lentil Soup:
    Soak lentils. Then boil potato (i used to use sweet potato) and carrots. Put it all in a blender with crushed tomatoes. In a pot, melt butter and brown some crushed coriander, cumin, and garlic. Readd the blended mixture and add some salt. It should make a thick soup. Delicious over rice! There is no science to the balance of the veggies. Essentially put them in the blender with good ratios so that the blender doesn't back up- that's always been my guideline. Try it I guarantee you'll love it!

    Edit: Oh! and for fun you can add some grilled chicken tossed in curry powder and some cooked spinach once the soup is hot. You won't need to cook it for very long because it's essentially all cooked. You're just bringing it up to the status of "hot meal"
