Why, hello there!

If you’re new to Nom Nom Paleo, welcome to my tiny corner of the interwebs! In a nutshell, I document my Paleo chow here (almost) every day. If I’ve got a new recipe, I’ll throw it up as well (figuratively, people). You can click on the About Me link and stalk away or simply peruse the Recipe Index to search for a tasty Paleo dish.

Let’s dive into my eats for today, shall we?

While I was at work in the middle of the night, I chowed on some dark chocolate, leftover sous vide hanger steak, Farmhouse Culture Classic Caraway Kraut, and broiled asparagus.

While munching on my leftovers, I was reminded of the rare roast beef on light rye sandwiches I used to eat as a kid. Nostalgia – minus the tummy aches!

When I got home in the morning, I snacked on some macadamia nuts and surfed the web. (It’s how I roll.) When I clicked over to Saveur Magazine’s website, I was struck dumb by the announcement that the editors had selected Nom Nom Paleo as one of six finalists for Best Food Blog in the “Special Diets” category! What the…?

I’m still in shock.

A big thank you to everyone who’s voted, tweeted, and shared on Facebook! I’m so honored to be nominated and truly humbled by the love I’ve received.

[NOTE: For your vote to count, you must register first. (I know — it’s confusing — but just clicking onto the Nom Nom Paleo photo and getting the red check mark isn’t enough.) Once you register, you’ll see a big red voting button at the bottom. Select Nom Nom Paleo, and then hit that button, and you’ll be all set. Thanks again!]

Despite my giddiness, I was exhausted after a long nightshift and slept away the morning and afternoon. When I finally crawled out of bed, I was too tired and lazy to make anything complicated for dinner.

Hmm…what’s a dish that’s composed of pantry/freezer items, takes less than 30 minutes to pull off, and is a complete one-pot meal? Thai Curry Chicken!

I snatched the ingredients from the fridge, freezer, and pantry…

…opened my iPad cooking app

…and whipped up a spicy chicken stew pronto.

Yes, I do consult my own recipes when I cook. Besides, the app is still in private beta, so what better way to test it than to put it through the paces in the kitchen?

Here’s my dinner plate:

Did I mention that there are over 100 recipes in my upcoming iPad cooking app that are officially Whole30-approved by Paleo superheroes, Dallas and Melissa Hartwig?

If you happen to be in the Bay Area on April 21st, you should definitely attend their awesome Whole9 Nutrition Workshop at CrossFit Palo Alto. I learned so much at the one I went to last year, but I wanna be even more of a Paleo geek so I’m going to attend this one, too. Click here to sign up, and I’ll see you there!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
