Where to go from here? And a recipe.

It's been nice the last few days not to feel obligated to put up a blog post. I've been debating on whether to continue blogging and what subjects I thought would be of interest. There are so many paleo blogs out there now, some focus on recipes, workouts, nutrition, science, etc.

It made me think that one more blog focusing on what other people would be interested in would just be so much white noise. So, I decided that if I'm going to continue to post, it will just be about me. What I'm thinking, what I'm cooking, what new n=1 food experiment I'm going to test out.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you're reading this thinking that I'm going to only do the Whole 30, or just paleo (with whatever your definition of paleo is), then this isn't the blog for you. All you're going to get here is someone who is still trying to figure "it" out. I'm all for "paleo" in that I plan on eating real food, mostly unprocessed, while continuing to try out real food that may fall outside the traditional "paleo" food world.

And now a recipe.

I'm all about ease of cooking. And while I love using fresh vegetables, in my busy life, this is not always feasible. I knew that last night would be a throw everything together kind of dinner.

I started heating the skillet with a dollop of leftover bacon grease. I then added a package (10 oz) of frozen onions & peppers. This is one of the greatest inventions ever.

Once the onions and peppers thawed, I added what was left of the baby spinach I had in the fridge, about 1 lb. I only allowed the spinach to just get soft.

Cooking it any further than that would have given me over-cooked spinach by the end of the dish. Then I added some diced leftover pork shoulder.

Once I mixed that in, I added some seasonings. Last night I decided on Cajun seasoning and a spice mix that I had blended together. At this point, the recipe would be Whole 30 compliant. I don't know what you would call it, other than a stir-fry.

For dinner last night, I added some steamed white rice. That would make the recipe Perfect Health Diet compliant.
