I’ve officially eaten 200 different paleo foods in the last few months! Ultimately it’s pretty cool to be able to look at a long list of food and see all the raw ingredients of everything you’ve eaten for months. My final list includes: 48 types of fruit, 68 types of vegetable, 32 types of meat […]Read More 200 paleo foods win!
It’s Halloween! Probably my favorite holiday and, I believe, a reasonable time to indulge in some sugar, especially as I’ve been so completely on the wagon for months. Thus a paleo pumpkin pie! Also organic candy corn (cue smiley face with tears of laughter emoji, please), which reading The Paleo Approach does make me think is […]Read More Halloween Paleo Pumpkin Pie
Finally splashed out at the farmers market for all the exciting Florida-grown exotic fruits on offer… Up to food 183 now in my 200 paleo foods challenge! Jackfruit is an odd fruit: it tastes a bit like tropical punch or bazooka gum. Like all the sweet tropical fruits whizzed together indistinguishably into one fruit. The […]Read More Exotic fruit fun
I’m at food number 174 in my 200 paleo foods challenge, and it’s really fun to be able to look back on the list and see the variety of foods I’ve eaten and the new things I’ve tried. Most interesting new food lately: kiwi berries. These soft little green berries taste just like kiwis! What’s […]Read More Food Updates and Kiwi Berries
Already at food number 154 on my 200 paleo foods challenge! So far it’s been easy, not sure if this means it’s actually a pretty achievable goal or if it’s going to suddenly get a lot harder now that I’ve eaten my way through most of the odd fruits and vegetables at the grocery store […]Read More 150+ paleo foods (some very odd roots)
Worth trying for the name alone, I think. Also one of the best new foods I’ve tried: this one I highly recommend. The malanga blanca is a potato-like (very potato-like) root vegetable with white innards and scaly brown skin. It’s creamier, richer and nuttier than a potato though… it’s actually possibly better than a potato? […]Read More Food #118: The Malanga Blanca
Wild Florida boar! So that’s the easy part done, coming up with another 100 paleo foods will definitely be the challenge. Here’s what I’ve already got on the list: Eating two hundred different foods challenge. A trip to the local farmer’s market furnished some items to put me up to one hundred: shrimp, rambutan, and wild […]Read More First 100 foods! And the hundredth was…
Current grand total: 219 This is certainly going to be a challenge but I’m going to see if, like the ancient hunter-gatherer cavemen types, I can eat 200 different types of food in the next six months of very healthful dieting. That’s really a lot of variety inside a limited paleo spectrum. I’ll add to […]Read More Eating two hundred different foods challenge
