Sometimes the easiest foods to prepare are really the best.
More often what we want to learn on a day-to-day basis is a bunch of quick and easy recipes that we can prepare without spending too much time. Add up to that is purchasing expensive ingredients just to prepare a single meal.
We heard about Paleo Diet or Paleo meals. The “Paleo Diet” also referred to as the caveman diet is a way of obtaining nutrition based on the assumed ancient eating plan of wild animals and plants that various human species constantly consumed during the Paleolithic era.
One healthful recipe which you can all prepare in about 20 minutes or less is Pork chops with apples and onions. You will be needing 4 bone-in pork chops, with the trimmings; 3 tbsp lard, butter; ghee or coconut oil; 2 large onions, sliced; 4 sliced and cored apples; Salt and pepper to taste. Heat a large pan over a medium-high heat. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper to taste. Melt 2 tbsp of the cooking fat and fry the chops, about 5 minutes on each side, until well-cooked and browned. Set the pork chops aside, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the other tbsp of cooking fat and add the onion and apple slices. Cook for about 4 minutes, until the onions have caramelized and the apple slices are slightly soft. You can serve the chops with the toppings of apple and onions for a mouth-watering meal.
An additional beneficial Paleo recipe is liver & onions. Prepare 4 large slices pork or beef liver; 5 large onions, sliced; 6 tbsp butter or lard; salt and pepper to taste. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and add 5 tbsp of the butter and the sliced onions. Cook slowly, stirring often, for about 20 to 25 minutes, until the onions are really soft and caramelized. Near the end of the cooking process of the onions, heat another pan over a medium-high heat and cook the liver with the rest of the cooking fat, about 3 minutes on each side. Serve the liver topped with the delicious and creamy cooked onions. This is also delicious served with a little bit of homemade salsa on the side.
These recipes are all fine and enjoyable, very easy and simple to prepare. You just need to be more cautious on your intake, and the body’s necessary requirement.
