One GRITS Journey To Convert Beloved Southern Recipes to Paleo Approved, and Darn GOOD too!

This is my story of how I am striving to change my family's life, nutritionally, for the better. Here in the deep South Paleo is a foreign word. No one has heard of it, and gluten free is really almost as unheard of...
After reading Gary Taubes enlightning GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES I was determine to change! Armed with my own two hands, the internet (thank God for, and all those wonderful blogs and podcasts available now, I am beginning my journey.
Please feel free to join me as I try to adapt all of our Southern Favorites into Paleo Appropriate Scrumptiousness!!! (and all Gluten Free) I will try to post all of the good ones, and may even blog about some failures along the way.

Coconut Curried Lamb with Coconut "Naan"

  I hesitated to put the pic, doesn't look that great, but it really was super tasty.

I made Coconut Naan for the kids to use to scoop up the sauce, or to pile to lamb mixture in...
It was a pretty big hit and oh so simple!
Coconut Curried Lamb with GF Coconut "Naan"
2lb grass fed lamb stew meat
l large can crushed tomatoes ( i used my canned whole tomatoes and just crushed them)
1 tsp curry powder
1 handful fresh cilantro, coarse chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 can coconut milk

Place all in CROCKPOT. Cook all day on low, or 4 or so hours on high.

Combine the flour, oil, baking powder, salt and eggs in a food processor. process until a thick batter forms. add enough liquid to make a somewhat loose batter.  Preheat griddle to med-high. Grease griddle very well with butter or coconut oil. Pour 1/4 c on a griddle cook till bubbling, flip and cook on other side.

  1. Oooh! The coconut naan intrigues me! pinned it and I'm trying it this week! Thanks for the easy alternative (so many alternatives to wheat flour have so much other junk that I don't have on hand in them!)
