Day 14 of the paleo challenge.
Nearly everyone in our friendly food challenge (30+ people!!) has been sticking to this challenge and taking it very seriously. We have already had success stories just two weeks into the challenge – many people feel better and have more energy by simply changing their diet to eat better and more natural foods. The great perk for me is to be inspired by all of the creative recipes that we’ve seen so far. Paleo dining doesn’t have to be boring I promise!
Here’s one dish (hat tip Lukshmi) that is simple and delicious. You can add it as a great vegetable side for breakfast, lunch or dinner. My friend made it on Paleo Indian food night as a substitute for raita (no yogurt). It was simple and incredibly delicious and requires NO cooking! All you need to do with this dish is some chopping. And that shouldn’t be a problem because we all know you’ve been working on knife skills to impress Tom Colicchio. This dish is extremely versatile and you can add many other herbs, seasonings and/or vegetables like cumin, mint or tomatoes. I just used some vegetables in my fridge but try to experiment and play around with the colors & flavors!
Dice your vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste and juice about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice on top. Mix well. No seriously – that’s it. Serve and enjoy!
