Lamb Shoulder and some Thoughts

Per my previous post, I told you I was going to share some thoughts/ideas that came to me when I was in Amsterdam (Holland). Overweight people are practically non-existent. Besides from being one of the most densely populated countries in the world, the Dutch hold the record as the tallest nation in the world at the Read More

Back from Abroad and Link

I was away for a week visiting the home land. I think I consumed more bread in one week then I have in the past 3 years. I did a lot of observing and thinking this past week in Holland. When it comes to paleo/primal/ef, there are probably only 2 handfuls of people in the Read More

Fruit Consumption,Portion Control and Running

Fruit… Do we eat too much of it? How much is enough? There has been some good discussion on all the blogs about the consumption of fruit. My take is as follows; IF you are lean, IF you can handle the extra sugar, then I think fruit has some wonderful benefits to offer. I would still Read More

Still Learning…

Sorry for not responding to the comments on the previous posts sooner. I was not aware I had to approve the comments that came in. The other day I was in the store and saw some local “dutch little yellow” potatoes. They looked so good, I HAD to bring them home. I boiled them for Read More

I don’t cook much with extra virgin olive oil. Heat doesn’t get along so well with it’s make up. But I do love it’s flavor. When I do use the evoo for cooking, I just “slow cook” on very low heat. Tomorrow I will show you how I use evoo with some small potatoes. In a Read More

A few weeks ago I made a big batch of bone broth. My preferred way is to use the crockpot. I let this batch simmer for 48 hours. After putting it in the fridge and letting it cool, I skimmed the fat (saved for later use) and made a bunch of individual portions and stuck Read More

Sashimi II

When you have the right ingredients, you can really make yourself  “restaurant” food at home. I made some more sashimi for lunch today. A quick visit to the Asian market to pick up a few supplies and I was ready. Since I’m mentioning the Asian market, go find yours where you live, you will enjoy Read More

Sashimi, Salad and a Silly Band Queen

I don’t live in a big city as you know, so my sushi restaurants locally are not the greatest. Don’t get me wrong, they’re ok but just not fantastic. Sadly, they are all pretty expensive. So every now and then I treat myself to an order from Catalina Offshore Products.  (no compensation) They are located in San Read More

Fish and Sweet Potato Soup

Someone asked me the other day if I like soup. I love soup. I especially love cream and coconut milk based soups. I like the thicker texture. An easy way to make thicker soups is to add some potato. When it comes to soup, your stock is KEY. Tasty stock = tasty soup (well most Read More
