The old standard for Lunch!

Before going Paleo I used to basically eat the same thing for lunch, just about every single day: A sandwich, a few leftover vegetables from dinner the night before, and a piece of fruit (usually an apple or pear, two of my favorites). Without bread in your diet this becomes troublesome, eh? Well not if you have Paleo bread. I've posted the recipe elsewhere.  This is actually the recipe for the burger buns, but pour this batter into a bread tin and voila, it makes bread instead of buns. 

So, I was able today to have a nice lunch, that stayed Paleo, but was reminiscent of the days of old... LOL   A turkey sandwich, Paleo Omega-3 Mayo, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, lettuce, side of leftover grilled veggies, and an apple. Perfect!



  1. Paleo Mayo? More information, please. :)

  2. Paleo Mayo - yeah easy as pie:

    blend 1 (hopefully free range) egg with some oil (oil of your selection, I've used olive oil, grape seed oil, I prefer walnut oil, but olive is the least expensive). about 1 tsp of dried mustard. It's also good to add a touch of flax seed oil, or at least a little flax seed meal to increase, balance the Omega-3 ratio. Blend. Start with about 2 tbs of oil, add oil as you see fit to increase/decrease the thickness or runniness of the mayo. Sometimes I like it runny as an aioli like spread, other times, I like it thick like proper mayo. It makes a nice spread for a sandwich or even salad. You can also segment out portion and add some spices. I do this often. I will add some salt, pepper, italian seasoning. Or I might add some spicy stuff like old bay and cayenne to top fish with. It's limited, really, only by your creativity. Let me know how it works out for you.

  3. I will! Do you think coconut oil might work? I have some walnut, but find it a little bitter. I love EVOO as well. Hmm, I wonder if tallow is workble.
