Paleo Peaches and Cream

I finally got back on track with eating last week, and it felt so good. When I’m a good cavegirl eater, I don’t have rollercoaster cravings throughout the day, and find most of my once too-good-to-live-without indulgences (chocolate cake, cinnamon rolls, every kind of cupcake ever) are far too sweet to be palatable. I like that about primal eating. It actually seems to reset my body to simpler needs.  I don’t need as much to satiate my face, I don’t crave much beyond rich meats and veggies. I find something as simple as a summertime peach to be so satisfying and full of flavor I could weep over the perfection of it all.

One of the best parts of paleo-inspired eating has been eating a satisfying breakfast a few hours into the day, rather than right when I wake up. Early morning pancakes and waffles and syrup always left me sick to the stomach, and kickstarted my day with a insatiable cravings for more sweets, more snacks, and something in my mouth in general.

But be a good primal eater, and breakfast happens when my body naturally cries for it. I eat just enough beautiful food to fill the gut, then bob about my day hardly needing a snack or sneak.

This tends to work with primal eating, because there’s a focus on healthy and proper fat consumption. A bit of melted butter or coconut oil makes food feel indulgent, and lends a satisfying heftiness to mealtimes. In the case of this pretty little breakfast I maked up the other day, a drizzle of honey butter turned out a lick-the-bowl clean scrumptiousness that had me returning to this recipe for lunch and dinner.

It’s all I ate in a day.

Pretty, pretty paleo.  Bowl full of delish. Body full of happy.

    Um — yum! Don’t normally put paleo and peaches in the same thought process, but why not? Luscious. I too love how healthy fat makes thing indulgent and satisfying.

    Hope you are feeling settled in with your move!

    I think you meant peaches instead of strawberries in the description… but I could see both being awesome in this recipe! This looks absolutely delicious!

    9999 The minimal particulars, like as fabric bows or embroidery allow them to provide a particular measure of panache with the most common each individual outfit. We were being like “ok, you are able to marry Harry!” Could possibly she someday be Prince Harry’sthen? “Nah! No!”.
