Paleolithic Recipes

bananasWe’ll be sharing more paleolithic recipes going forward to demonstrate how easy it is to eat paleolithic foods.  Who knows, maybe we’ll compile a paleolithic cookbook!  Until then here are some zesty paleo recipes:  Paleo Eating for Modern People – Cookbook

Scrumptious Baked Banana Dessert

Just because you are taking on more paleo eating habits doesn’t mean you don’t get to eat dessert anymore!  This is one of my favorite desserts and was inspired by seeing a banana dessert at a Thai restaurant one night.  I eat this a few times per week.  It calls for bit of honey which you can eliminate if you are trying to lose weight.

Why cook a banana?  You’re right if you’re worried about losing nutrients, but cooking a banana enhances its aroma, sweetness, and texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 fairly ripened banana
  • 1/2 ounce of crumbled walnut
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of honey

How to cook quickly:

  1. Peel the banana and place on a microwave-safe glass plate and microwave for 60 seconds (just like any caveman would do).
  2. Remove from the microwave and crumble the walnuts over the top of the banana.
  3. Add just a few drops of honey over the top.
  4. Enjoy!

How to cook for better taste:

  1. Bake the banana without peeling it at 350 degrees for 15-30 minutes (until the peels are black) or even better, over an open fire.
  2. Peel the banana and place it on a glass plate.
  3. Crumble the walnuts over the top of the banana.
  4. Add just a few drops of honey over the top.
  5. Place under a broiler for a few minutes to lightly brown the bananas and nuts.
  6. Enjoy!

I’ve tried other types of nuts, which taste great, but none of them have the great Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio that walnuts have.

This contains relatively no protein, so be sure you have a good amount of protein for dinner first…and look forward to more Paleolithic Recipe examples!

    All nuts and seeds are allowed, except peanuts which are legumes. Some propagators of the diet also believe that cashews cannot be eaten, as they are rarely ever consumed in their raw form. Meats (including seafood) and eggs are perhaps the most important components of the Paleolithic Diet. Ideally, the animals from which the eggs and meat come from are fed a natural (to the animal) organic diet.
