Last night, in order to properly conclude my mom’s birth-weekend, we had a Low-Country Shrimp Boil. Basically you just take a giant industrial-sized pot, fill it with water, boil it, and toss in some red potatoes, ears of corn, shrimp, sausage, and artichokes or onions, season it with some creole seasoning, let it cook, and then DUMP the entire pot onto a table where the crowd stands patiently waiting with nothing but a paper plate and their bare hands to dig in.
Well, since we’re not from the “low-country” we put out serving spoons.
Well, to make it paleo, I only ate the sausage and shrimp. Technically artichokes are paleo, but to be honest, I really don’t get artichokes. You can’t eat the leaves, but artichokes are all leaves…so what is left to eat?! They’re an irrelevant member of my shrimp boil, and judging by how many leftover artichokes we had, the crowd though so too. Anyway the boil was still veeeerry delicious, and packed with heat; I strongly recommend having some almond milk or watermelon nearby.
DRINK 8 oz. water when you wake up.
- 8 oz. water
- Paleo Pancakes + peaches + honey drizzle
DRINK 16 oz. water before lunch.
- 5 oz can of tuna + half an avocado
- apple + 2 tbs almond butter
DRINK 8 oz. of water after luch.
- Spaghetti Squash
- homemade roasted tomato sauce
- leftover shrimp boil sausage
For the tomato sauce, I made my regular oven roasted tomatoes, which is just cherry tomatoes sliced lengthwise and placed in a baking dish with some olive oil and minced garlic. Then I sprinkle on dried oregano, dried basil, and garlic salt, and throw it into a 400 degree oven for anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. Then, I took them out, let them cool a bit, and threw them into a food processor. You might need to add a little bit more olive oil if it’s too chunky.
DRINK 8 oz. of water before bed.
Gotta lot of fun recipes for y’all coming up this week – get excited!!
