When Paleo Doesn’t Pan Out

4 Comments

I spent yesterday slaving in the kitchen cooking lasagna.  It is so time consuming yet delicious! I made one non paleo for the men of the house, and a smaller paleo one for myself- Big enough to have leftovers.
Now, I have been cooking caveman style for a few months now, and I have not ran into anything that has been so bad I have nearly threw up…. Until I bit into my much anticipated lasagna!

The “cottage cheese or ricotta” filling is cashews that has been soaked until soft, pureed to a ricotta consistency w/ almond milk. I see this method used for many dishes that require cheese in paleo cooking.                                                *gag* gag * gag* 
I don’t know if I didn’t do something right but my goodness I could not wash that down! 
My husband had a fantastic time watching me dry heave after each of the 3 bites I took!  Needless to say the whole pan was dog food….
Desert was a hit:

Double ChocolatePaleo Brownies!  Taste! 

I hope everyone had a fantastic memorial day!  Thank you to all service men current & past!  I don’t know about your local cemetery, but ours places flags on all service men & woman’s headstones.  It is really beautiful to see and brings you back to the true meaning we enjoy this holiday weekend.  I didnt get to go home to see my dads headstone (vietnam vet), but I stopped by a local cemetery to pay my respects this afternoon!

  1. Aw, it will happen! I’ve run into so many instances like that. If you’re lacto-paleo, you can try using raw cheese.
