Which is why it's so strange to me that most diet crazes include a lot of dairy. It seems counterintuitive to me, but, oh well. When one comes along that is dairy-free, I am interested to, at the very least, learn more about it. But before I continue, I will say this: I am not an enthusiast of any diet other than those that make people feel good. For myself, I am dairy-free. I believe in eating healthily in general, but I also believe that part of eating healthily means enjoying one's food. So, I am generally not a "dieter."
Last year, the Paleo diet exploded in the media, and now it is everywhere. All over facebook, twitter, and instagram, people are looking for ways to eat like the Paleolithic.
After I made this Baked Coconut-Crusted Salmon, which follows all the rules of the Paleo diet, I decided that the Paleolithic ate pretty well. Prepared with Alaskan King Salmon, fresh lime juice, a simple egg wash and shredded coconut, it's an easy meal that is pretty healthy and delicious, too. I can't say that I'd ever want to eat Paleo all of the time (I especially love rice!), but it's a nice way to keep my diet varied throughout the week.
So, here's to New Year's resolutions and getting healthier this year! If you're going Paleo for 2013, what are you planning on eating?
