I have been thinking for a while now about the fact that many of my recipes are very nearly Paleo which can then sometimes make them Primal so I have decided to list some of them here. Many Paleo Lifestylers eat some dairy, some are 80/20, and some even use lowcarb sweeteners especially, if diabetic.
For most, Paleo is a lifestyle and not necessarily to be followed by someone else’s exacting dogma.
Some recipes have a bit of sour cream, some use Just Like Sugar©, some have Sucralose©, some use combinations and it is easy to substitute one sweetener for another if you don’t like what I use. One of the things I have found to be true for myself is that using several different sweeteners give a better depth of flavor. This way, if you want to expand your Paleo recipe repertoire you can use these and make changes as you wish.
Jane Barthelemy author of Paleo Desserts says Just Like Sugar© is her favorite lowcarb sweetener, uses it extensively in her book recipes, and believes the health effects are unique among sweeteners as a pre-biotic (inulin) that promotes healthy intestinal flora and I totally agree with her and to read her entire take on Just Like Sugar© please see further here: http://janeshealthykitchen.com/my-trip-to-the-just-like-sugar-factory/#.U9amo6PQq1g
So…this is just an experiment and I would love for you to make Comments on any particular recipe, whether you liked it…or not…and why. If heavy cream, cheeses, and some alternative sweeteners are in your list of “sometime eats” then these recipes can be eaten “sometimes”. As a diabetic, I would not have much left to eat if it were not for “sometime” foods.
Given up keeping this page current. Way too many recipes & there are paleo people who eat some primal foods. You will just have to peruse the site and find what’s right for you.
As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
