I love books. If it’s a really good book, I can read it in a couple days. I start to miss it even before I am finished. One of my favorites recently is Water for Elephants. Really great reading. Sara Gruen’s other books are great too.
I have a few new cookbooks that I have been enjoying… (I like cookbooks for reading… does anyone else do that?). Today I made a couple things from this exciting new book:
It follows the ideas of a paleo diet, which mimics a hunter-gather or cavemen approach, eating foods our bodies are genetically meant to eat. There is a line in this book that says “No Pasta, No Bread, No Rice, No Beans, No Kidding”. It’s been a very interesting read! I’ve been receiving Mark Sisson’s “daily apple” emails for a while, and based on what I learned in those, I recently bought the book.
As an almost daily Green Monster fan, I was intrigued by a recipe called Spinach Bread. No flour or yeast. This?
Smells amaze. As does the finished product. I will be making this again:
I realize the irony of Laughing Cow, but The Primal Blueprint includes dairy:
My food processor is getting a workout today. I made almond meal:
The other recipe I made from The Primal Blueprint? Crackers. Again, no flour / yeast. Again? Delicious:
This was fun – I have always wanted to make crackers. Pretty easy, too.
I’m still giddy over making crackers
These crackers are fabulous. Delicious. Based on the bread and crackers, I am excited to make more recipes from this book.
Yes. I also realize Early Man did not have tofu, so no Toby’s. Oh, Toby’s. I think I love you most of all…
Does everyone have access to Toby’s? It’s a tofu spread, and comes in a few flavors. Original tastes kinda like egg salad? It’s really hard to describe, but it is YUM. I love Toby’s. In college I lived on Toby’s + wasa crackers.
After such an exciting day, I’m ready for dinner! We’re going out to dinner then to a club to see a band. Good night all!
