Red Rice Pilaf with Mushrooms

On a recent trip to the Himalayas, I was captivated by the rich, nutty flavor of Bhutanese red rice. Since rice is a grain, some folks might say this recipe is not Paleo. I beg to differ. Strong evidence has recently emerged that our humanoid ancestors ate grasses for milleniums, which eventually led to cultivating those grains. And that humans were grinding grains some 32,000 years ago. This evidence is coming out years after the "Paleo Diet" was coined. Great! ...

Blueberry No-Cornmeal Pancakes

Once upon a time I loved traditional cornmeal pancakes. Corn was healthy, non-GMO, with authentic homemade flavor and crunchy texture. But nowadays corn is GMO, lifeless, and tasteless. I miss my favorite pancakes! So I just invented this easy one-step recipe. It's free of grains, gluten, sugar, and GMO's. YAY! It uses blended coconut flakes for an old-fashioned texture that tastes just like corn. Ha Ha! I'm happy now. Throw in your blueberries at the end and stir by hand ...

Cuban Black Beans, Nightshade-free

I learned to love authentic black bean soup in a Cuban cafe on West 72nd street. The deep, dark flavor was indescribably delicious. They knew how to prepare old-fashioned beans, soft, easy to digest. Of course their beans were full of spicy nightshades. Beans aren't considered Paleo, however I beg to differ. There's plenty of evidence that ancient people enjoyed beans. Recent discoveries show beans to be a MAJOR factor in longevity, and an important source of protein and vitamins ...
