Eggplant Lasagna Paleo

Use eggplant as pasta and cauliflower as ricotta cheese.

Ingredients:

Cauliflower/Garlic “RICOTTA”
1 large head of Cauliflower
1 full bulb of roasted garlic
1-2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Salt/Pepper

Instructions: Steam cauliflower until fork tender. Place steamed cauliflower and roasted garlic into a food processor. Pulse until you have a mixture that is semi smooth but a little lumpy, similar to a ricotta texture. Season with salt/pepper and lemon juice and stir.

Sauce:
1 lb ground pork
2 jars of jovial tomatoes, 1 diced, 1 crushed
1 4.5 oz tube of tomato paste
1 cup diced red onion
½ cup diced carrot
½ cup diced celery
4 large garlic cloves minced
1 cup diced mushroom
2 tsp ground fennel seed
2 tsp crushed red pepper flake
A large handful of fresh basil and oregano roughly chopped, probably about a half cup in total
1-2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups liquid either broth or just water
Salt/Pepper

Instructions: Preheat a large sauce pan over medium high heat. Add olive oil and allow to preheat, and add pork when oil is hot. Brown pork and remove from pan.
Lower heat to medium-low, and add onion, carrot, and celery. Cook until veg softens, approx. 5 minutes, stirring and scraping the leftover browned pork bits from the bottom of the pan. Add garlic, fennel, and pepper flakes and cook another 2 minutes.
Add red wine vinegar to finish deglazing the pan, scrape all the flavor up from the bottom of the pan.
Add pork, mushrooms, tomatoes, tomato paste, fresh herbs, and water/broth. Bring to a simmer, then drop heat on stove to low. Simmer for about 2 hours, until the sauce thickens up pretty good.

You won’t want it to be too watery.

Be sure to season generously multiple times with salt/pepper while cooking. Whenever adding something to the pot, re-season.

LASAGNA
1 Large Eggplant
1 batch of cauliflower “ricotta”
1 batch of sauce
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 F.
Slice eggplant into even slices about 1/8 of an inch thick. I use my mandolin on the second setting. Coat eggplant slices lightly in olive oil and salt/pepper. Pile onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Build lasagna in a 9×13 glass baking pan. First put a layer of sauce into the ungreased pan. Then a layer of the sliced eggplant, allow them to overlap so that there are no gaps. Finally a layer of the cauliflower ricotta mixture. Repeat these layers one time, and end with another layer of sauce on top.
Bake at for 45-minutes to an hour. Or until the entire pan is bubbling on all sides.
Optional: You can shave some macadamia nuts on top with a zester to imitate parmesan

Paleo diet for beginners

Putting the Paleo diet into practice

Paleo living

Low carb diet

Paleo diet – Pete Evans, award-winning Australian chef, talks about the benefits of paleo and a low-carb diet.

I can choose to cook food that potentially may cause you harm, or I can choose to cook food that we know it’s going to benefit you.


“I don’t know how to cook”

Food is Medicine

My job is to give you beautiful recipes and how to apply this onto your day-to-day life.

We’ve heard about the low carb movement.

This is how I’ve put together my paleo plate. I’ve read a book called Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas about 5 yrs ago and it just makes sense. She makes the case of moderate amount meat, she doesn’t promote excess meat, which I think it’s smart, especially with sustainability issues.

Paleo Plate diet

The Paleo Plate

  • Palm size piece of meat or seafood
  • Abundant of colorful vegetables (Above th eground preferably)
  • Enough dietary fat to satiate in the form of avocados, olives, nuts, seeds, eggs, if tolerated and the most natural fat from animals.
  • Add fermented vegetables and fermented beverages (Kombucha) for good gut health as well as daily bone broth.
  • Herbs and spices to round it up.

Bone Broth

As a chef, the first thing I learned in culinary school was how to make a broth. Bone broth is good for the gut and delicious. First culinary training starts with flavor. Chefs have as much nutritional training as doctors.

Paleo Tips

Why you are not losing weight with a Paleo diet and lifestyle…

You NEED to watch your carbohydrate intake

Restrict CARBS!

Paleo Fat Loss secrets

You can have a list of the paleo-proof foods you can eat and the ones you don’t… but still, you need to watch what you eat.

Ready for some controversy?
Fruit: Fruit is packed-full of fructose, same fructose as in high fructose high syrup.

FRUIT IS FULL OF SUGAR.

As an example, 1 medium banana can contain anywhere from 24 to 27 grams of fructose, that’s 27 grams of carbohydrates.

If you want to start losing fat, set a goal of eating less than 50 grams of Net carbohydrates per day. Which is extremely low (The average western diet is between 300 or 400 carbs per day).But That is a golden rule for fat-loss, you are guaranteed to lose it if you stay under 50 grams of carbs per day. Of course while getting all the other things you need: vitamins, minerals, green vegetables, etc.

Sleep

If you don’t get enough sleep, your body is not going to do what you want it to do. LACK OF SLEEP increases the risk of injury. Sleep is critical specially if you are working out heavily, for those muscles to recover. No screen before bed (1 hour or at least 30 mins).

Get more sleep quotes

It is messing up your melatonin production. Grab a book instead and read a fiction book before bed, it will help you fall asleep. You might not necessarily get your 8 hours per day, try to get at least 6 hours of sleep per night.

Overtraining

We live in a world of crossfit, mud runs, endurance sports, etc Seems to be part of the “caveman mentality”. But there is such a thing as “overtraining”, especially if you are still new to it. You are probably doing more harm than good. If you want positive body composition changes, you need to get 80 to 90% of those results from NUTRITION.
If your MAIN GOAL is FAT LOSS, all you have to really do is remove the carbohydrates (Sugar, glucose).
Your body can either burn fat OR burn glucose for energy, if you remove glucose, your body has no choice than to burn fat.
