Today's Tucker - 25/06/09

Breakfast - a couple of primal choco-nutty treats - surprisingly good for breakfast, light but filling.

Lunch - leftovers from last night.

Dinner - pizza burgers with ham, feta and capsicum mini frittatas, red cabbage, brussel sprouts, and silverbeet.

Now, since both the pizza burgers and the frittatas involve dairy, they don't get a proper recipe post like primal recipes, but here's a quick breakdown:

Pizza burgers - 500g beef mince, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup cheese (a mix of mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar, ideally), 1/2 cup diced capsicum (peppers), 1/2 diced onion, 50g diced bacon. Mix together, squash into 4 - 6 balls, press onto lined tray and cook in 180°C oven for 20 minutes, browned and cooked through.

Frittata - 250g diced bacon, 1 cup diced capsicum, 1 diced onion, 180g diced fetta cheese. Saute together until onion is done, then spoon into mini muffin tray. Combine 12 eggs and 1/4 cup cream, and pour over filling. Bake in 180°C oven until set completely and browned a little. Makes a good 36 mini muffins. These are for my students during our end-of-term party. What, you thought I'd feed them chips and chocolate? Pffft...

So many of your recipes are so awesome, so thanks! I started this Paleo gig about a month ago, and despite a few cheat days, so far so good! I noticed that a lot of your recipes have dairy that something you just decided to not give up? I've almost completely cut out dairy myself, with the exception of eggs and minor cheat a lot of Paleo followers use dairy? Trying to figure out my own plan/path bc I LOOOVE cheese.

Hi LittlestWinslow,

Cheese never posed a digestive problem for me. You have to do what works for you. If you're aiming for weight loss then sometimes dairy can block individuals, but I have found full flexibility to be more successful long term rather than risk deprivation.
