Two medium potatoes

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 09, 2011 at 9:32 PM

With about a 1/3 stick of butter mixed in and a half cup of milk and then mashed, two chicken breasts, marinated in soy sauce and cooked in soy oil and a small plate of stir fried broccoli.

How does that sound for a paleo dinner?

I know that the soy oil isn't optimal but what else would you change?

Potatoes aren't optimal either, are they, but are better than rice - which is what I used to eat.

Can anyone provide a website paleo recipes?

Almost nothing about that is paleo, but if you dropped the milk and soy oil it's not too bad. You would have been better off with the rice. Next time try slow boiled sweet potatoes, unmarinated chicken (or maybe brushed with olive oil and some spice), and steamed broccoli.

I believe that it is, but we're talking about 2-3 drops at the end of cooking (so its not heated nor in large quantity), since its so concentrated a tiny amt occassionally shouldn't be of major concern, unless you are already using high omega 6 type items.

Kelly, I thought sesame oil was super high in omega 3? I've stopped using it solely because of that.

I think potatoes are fine. "Optimal" is quickly becoming meaningless. Use lard instead of soy oil. I think soy sauce in moderation is fine, but I would use Tamari (gluten-free). Red meat is preferable to chicken as a regular meat.

i still eat white potatoes (sans peel) on occasion. try seasoning your chicken breast with garlic, salt and pepper and cook w/olive or avocado oil... always tasted fine to me. There are a lot of recipes on marksdailyapple.com, everydaypaleo.com, robbwolf.com and mark's site has plenty of links to other paleo/primal sites w/plenty of recipes.

Soy oil is far from "not optimal" even 1 tbs a day can be the difference between optimal health and chronic illness. Here is the why soy oil kills you dead thread http://paleohacks.com/questions/30918/your-favorite-resources-on-why-soybean-oil-is-bad/30928#30928

Paleo times are always a-changin' and we are always looking at exactly what is good and what isn't based upon its positive and negative factors. There is nothing wrong with potatoes except it is probably better to peel them since the peel houses the toxins, particularly glycoalkaloids. Most people still favor sweet potatoes.

Many are accepting of butter. I think there is something nutritionally foul about conventional dairy, and so I would urge you to get pasture-produced butter, preferably raw, or at the very least organic butter.

I think potatoes, chicken, and broccoli sounds just about perfect.

In fact, that's pretty much my dinner a lot of nights.

You gotta ditch that soy oil. Forget is this paleo or whatever, just toss that junk out. Don't gotta be "paleo" to know soy oil is not fit for human consumption (not that I'd give it to my dog either but).

You're doing great, cook all your food like you are and you're there.

Change the chicken to grassfed beef. Change the soy oil to coconut oil. Change the potatoes to sweet potatoes, without the skins. Keep the broccoli. Smother it either in butter or coconut oil if you don't do dairy. Now, that's what I'D eat. :)

For me it doesn't get any better than this site, which will link you to all relevant paleo cooking sites

Try using herbs and fresh ground spices (or dry that are gluten free, MSG free, sugar free-you'd be surprised whats in some of this stuff if you arent careful) to season your chicken. I use a lot of cumin, salt, pepper. Chicken goes great with rosemary, thyme as well. (i actually cut up a bunch of fresh herbs including bay leaf and stuff under the skin with butter and slow roast)

Definitely stay away from soy in all forms. Pure Seasame oil at the end of a stir fry with fresh ginger will give veggies a fantastic flavor (you wont miss the soy sauce)

plug in paleo or primal recipes and you'll find TONS of recipes and sites.

A lot of people replace rice with riced cauliflower.

If you aren't worried about the carb load switch up potatoes with sweet potatoes, plantanes....but you'll get a lot more bang for your buck flavor wise if you do more green veggies, roasted brussel sprouts with butter are addictive (to me at least).

I wouldn't eat the soy sauce or soy oil, that would be a deal breaker for me. I also wouldn't eat the potatoes but I'm low carb, if you're not worried about carbs it's probably fine. I'd cut the milk too, use cream instead

Everyday Paleo has great recipes.
