My Next Book is a Paleo/Vegan Mashup, and You’re Going to Love it

Paleo and Vegan are very different diets. But the truth of it is that there is a common space that very much so applies to vegans, and to people who eat paleo.

IMG_20170921_181653

In fact, if you take the Paleo diet, subtract the animal products, including honey, then you have a Vegan diet. Paleo includes lean meats, red meats, bacon, seafood, and eggs. It otherwise includes fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and oils, and foods made from them.

A vegan diet includes anything and everything that isn’t derived from an animal. This includes soy. I don’t do soy.

So, this book is the perfect combination of animal, and plant and without “processed” ingredients and, of course, no soy.

My favorite part about Vegan is it includes all produce, because Paleo excludes some. And my favorite part about Paleo is that it also includes (some) animal products and honey, which are no-nos for the Vegan diet. fruit-and-veg_1050x600

This book is full of fruit and vegetable sides, all of which are paleo AND vegan. Well, with one exception. I use honey. And I prefer honey to vegan alternatives.

If you are strict vegan, you can use coconut sugar in place of the honey, to make it a truly vegan AND paleo choice. (Otherwise vegans eat cane sugar, other sugars, sweeteners, and things like agave.)

How To In the Kitchen: Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is such a staple in my household, and I always need it on hand. I love to make big batches of it, and then freeze in small batches. Here’s how.

Remember, my batch is huge, so I will give you a nightly recipe, too.

Roasted Garlic (Bulk):

IMG_20170719_113924
Ends and discarded cloves in the bowl (left,) and ready for the oven in the pan (right.)
  • 3 lbs garlic, deskinned and, ends cut off
  • 1/2 cup oil ( I used avocado)
  • large pinch of salt and pepper

Add garlic, oil, and salt and pepper to a glass baking pan, cover, and bake about an hour at 350°. It’s done when you can easily insert a fork into it, and it’s beginning to turn golden brown.

Roasted Garlic:

  • 5-10 cloves garlic, deskinned, and ends cut off
  • drizzle of oil ( I used avocado)
  • dash of salt and pepper

Add garlic, oil, salt and pepper to a small oven safe dish, and cover. Cook at 350° for about 45 or until you can easily insert a fork into it, and it’s beginning to turn golden brown.

Storage:

There’s a few ways you can do this. Choose whichever works best, depending on your usage.

-store in freezer containers, preferred size

-store in freezer bags, preferred size

-freeze into ice cube trays, individually, and then pop them out (of the trays) and into freezer bags, for a portioned amount whenever you need it

The prep, roasting, and storage for this is so worth it. I use inordinate amounts of garlic while cooking, and it still lasts me months! Leave any questions in the comments. Happy Cooking!
