Another Passover meant another dozen or so hours on Pinterest looking for the perfect ways to
get around my temporary dietary restrictions celebrate the festival of freedom.
I had heard of Paleo, I knew it involved no wheat, so I looked into it. Turns out, no gluten, no grains (no corn, no rice), no legumes (no soy, no peanuts). Sound familiar*?
Plus no dairy, but some people even do neo-paleo and eat dairy.
Plus, my great-grandmother didn’t have two sets of Passover dishes so she made only meat all week anyway.
So that led me to more hours searching “paleo” on Pinterest, and … I might be going paleo. Just a little. Maybe just for this week. I don’t know, I don’t buy into all the all-over health benefits and miracle digestional and autoimmune cures (plus I’m pretty healthy in that respect), but it looks like a pretty good framework for low-carb, healthy eating that might just help me lose some weight.
So, for my first really intentional Paleo meal, I present to you: Pasta on Passover!
You read that right.
Zoodles. I can’t believe people buy the crap made out of potato starch when you can make amazing spaghetti out of zucchini.
Yum! This looks sooo forbidden. It’s perfect!
