Reporting back live via Veggie Land

Ok, so as promised I am reporting back on what I have found on the veggie front. Because it has only been a day and I am not superwoman, I haven’t tried any of these great veggie ideas, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging so I thought I would post a few and then update as I make each of these dishes.

Disclaimer: these are by no means my original dishes or ideas. I will post a link to each place I have gotten these from. Being new to this whole Paleo deal hasn’t really led me to spontaneously create Paleo dishes from scratch so I succumb to random blog/recipe stalking.

Broccoli and Apple Salad 

This one looks very delicious and requires only a few ingredients:

 a couple handfuls of watercress, 2 cups broccoli flowers, 2 cups sweet and sour apples diced, juice from a lemon, and olive oil. And just mix all together!

Easy right?!! I’d say so. And boy does it look pretty.

Here’s another that I am actually trying for lunch today:


Side Note: I am altering the recipe a bit and adding some protein. I just so happened to open my fridge this morning to make my lunch (procrastinator people, remember?) and realized I had nothing to make for lunch and no protein to use. Frantically I looked around my kitchen to see what I could whip up or cook quickly and I realized that nothing would suffice considering I had to be at work five minutes ago…and it takes me like 15 minutes to drive there…yikes! Thankfully, due to my blog stalking last night I found this recipe of Guacomatoes and thought that I would be perfect for me. Easy, quick and required only a few key ingredients. What could be better? So, as I sit at my desk I will be whipping up the mix of avocado and tuna, hollow out the tomatoes and stuff in the mixture. Cross your fingers for me.

I will also be working on a cucumber and tomato salad. Since it is the season for both of these ingredients, I am happy that I will be able to acquire fresh, straight from the garden ingredients. I, unfortunately, do not have a garden of my own, so I will be taking advantage of all of the wonderful vendors at the Cherry Street Farmers Market this Saturday. YUMMY.

Here is a link for the Cucumber/Tomato Salad

  1. Hey Christina! So nice to see someone getting some use out of my recipes 🙂 Why don’t you just get all of them from the new website?

    Good luck with them. And please let me know how your experiment with tuna went, it sounds quite tasty.

    Take care, Naomi

    btw. Hang in there for a while longer, the benefits will come. You already look in good shape so that might explain why it’s taking a bit longer.
