It’s Friday…but I’m smack-dab in the middle of my week of graveyard shifts. Please don’t rub it in that you’re off for the weekend, ‘kay?
Before I pass out, I want to share with you this week’s edition of Forky Friday, which features links about weird food sightings, how to eat Paleo on a budget, and cool dishes to beat the summer heat.
You can’t surf the Interwebs without stumbling across some seriously wacked-out stuff, but I found some exceptional doozies this week. For example:
- I know many Paleo peeps are a-OK with chowing on offal. But are you game for slurping up human placenta smoothies? (Your own placenta. Not Will Murray’s wife’s.)
Okay, enough with the weird stuff.
We all know that money doesn’t grow on trees (sadly), and pastured meats and organic produce aren’t cheap. So how’s a caveperson supposed to feed their clan without breaking the bank? I wrote a post about eating real food on a budget two years ago, but I’ve recently come across five additional resources that are chock-full of money-saving tips.
- Back in February, Christine from Once A Month Mom listed a ton of great ideas on how to save money in this Paleo on a Budget post. If you’d like to learn how to cook once and have ready-to-reheat Paleo food in your freezer for the whole month, check out OAMM’s Paleo monthly meal plans. Remember: you’ll always save money if you cook your meals instead of eating out.
- My buddy Diane Sanfilippo gives some fantastic advice on how to shop smart in this post.
It’s getting hot in my neck of the woods—the projected forecast for this weekend is that the highs will be in the 90s. Ick. I hate hot weather, especially when I’m supposed to be sleeping during the day. The last thing I want to do when I wake up is to up the temperature in the house even more by cooking. With that in mind, here are some recipes requiring minimal heat that I’ll be whipping up this week:
What’s more refreshing than salad in the summer? Not much. Here are a bunch of salads ranging from light to downright hearty:
One last reminder: Have you taken a peek at our forthcoming cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans? If you like what you see, please pre-order the book.
