    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.

    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!
