Michele has also recommended Soba noodles... a Japanese buckwheat pasta that is also naturally gluten free and shucked instead of milled (making it a more paleo-wise pasta choice)... read the label carefully to make sure it states: 100% buckwheat. It is really OKAY, when you are eating paleo strictly, to enjoy an "open" meal from time-to-time! :-)
Zone wise, this was not extremely balanced. 1 C of pasta, 1/4 C sauce, and 1 chicken sausage = 3F, 2P, and 5 C... If you want a higher block meal, you could actually have two sausages to up the fat and protein and make it more balanced (that's what Scott did... making it 5-4-5).
Pasta Sauce Recipe:
3-4 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 tsp olive oil
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes (no added salt)
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste (no added salt)
1 C red wine
1 T Italian seasoning
1 tsp black pepper
a little water (as needed)
Fresh basil, chopped (about 1/4-1/2 C)
Saute garlic and onion in olive oil. Add tomato sauce, paste, and red wine. Bring to a low boil. Add seasonings and simmer, uncovered for about an hour (add water as needed for desired consistency). Add basil a little before serving. I browned sausages and added them to the sauce while it simmered.
Today was another great benchmark WOD for the Paleo/Zone challenge... and a true testament to just how well this works! There were MORE pr's on the whiteboard today... It's been wonderful to witness all your successes! Congratulations!! :-)
When are we going to take the after pictures-I am out of town this weekend and won't be back till tuesday- I could possibly go in on Friday but that is iffy.
'After' pictures are this Sunday at 12:30. If you can't make it.... Friday would be fine or Monday or Tuesday of next week is okay, too. I would be happy to do a Tuesday evening photo session for those who need it!! :-)
I will need the Tuesday Shoot-what time do you want to do it-i am free all day. Kim may need it that day as well.ReplyDelete
