Diet and nutrition / question about cooked fish and sushi?
« on: January 22, 2014, 10:57:35 AM »
I have a few questions.
My first question might be really stupid...but is sushi considered paleo? Obviously stuff with rice in it would not be. But raw fish and veggie rolls would be fine right? My birthday and valentines day is coming up and one my bf and I's favorite spots is a thai and japanese restaurant and I want to make sure I can enjoy some of my fave things there.  I typically order tuna tataki which I think is just sliced raw tuna. I know I wont be able to have my fave things which are crab angels (like crab rangoon) and thai tea. So im going to try hard not to eat those!
But do you guys have any other good paleo idea options for eating out at a thai and japanese restaurant?

My other question is about cooked fish. Ive never been much of a cooked fish either, but id like to try to incorporate it into my new diet. I looked at some salmon at the fresh market and it was 19.99 a lb! Is that normal pricing?
What is a good fish to start out on...and an easy recipe for it?

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Recipes and meal photos / question about paleo mayo recipe?
« on: January 22, 2014, 10:36:06 AM »
I was planning on trying out nom nom paleo's mayo recipe tonight. It calls for one egg yolk to be mixed in with some other ingredients. Im just wondering if its dangerous to eat a raw egg yolk? I use organic eggs from publix.

Does anyone have any paleo mayo recipes without the use of eggs?

Thanks.  Im addicted to them now! Never liked them before. But had one as a snack today and also with my lunch with a little gluten free sriracha sauce (not sure if paleo? A lot of recipes call for it so I bought some and love it!)
I love that I can make a bunch at the beginning of the week and have something that I can just grab as a snack or pack it quickly for a lunch.  :) yumm

I ended up not liking the mushroom.  Its not that it tasted bad exactly. ..I just cant get over the texture for some reason :/ I wish I could get over it because they taste good!

Awesome!! Thank you...the roast is a great idea!! And I love spinach...use it every day for salads and in my morning omelette.

Ive never really eaten hard boiled eggs...ive never even made them. If I decide to make many do you normally make at a time? And how long do they keep in the fridge?

So one of the things ive been having trouble with is coming up with good lunch ideas. I pretty much eat the same foods in the AM and thats easy for me. And im having a blast making new dinners for myself every night. But I have such a hard time with lunch!
Now I work about 40-45 hours a week, and atleast 4 of the 6 days a week I work, im there during lunch. So I need some recipes that are easy to take to work and ones that can be easily reheated in a microwave (if theyre meant to be hot)

Would love some ideas!!!! I like almost any foods.
Thanks :)
