Recipes

Two requirements for all recipes found on this site:

1. They are all primal (gluten-free, non-processed), and include dairy in many cases (butter, cream, & hard cheeses**)

2. My husband must enthusiastically jump out of his chair to tell me I have to make it again soon (If it is my 3-year-old son who is enthusiastic instead, I will be sure to specify). NONE of these are blah-we-have-to-consume-them-because-they’re-primal recipes. We promise.
.
All of the listed recipes are “Sladky approved”, some just need to be written up and photographed – I apologize for the delay. Let me know if you want any posted immediately & I will see what I can do….

We Enjoy Dairy With Our Paleo (I’m Going on a Tangent Here)
.
**…anything less than 40% fat, and I’m lactose intolerant. I also enjoy eating quality raw milk cheese. We try not to overdo dairy due to the body’s insulin response – there are many websites to reference for more information, I like Dr. Harris and Drs Price & Pottenger. We definitely use dairy in moderation check out this post from Dr. Davis and another from Dr. Cordain.
.
Please decide for yourselves what is best for your families concerning consumption of raw milk products, and ESPECIALLY if you are pregnant – many physicians advise pregnant women to avoid all raw milk/cheese!! An interesting point I can’t resist highlighting made by Janet Fletcher (the author of The Cheese Course and a staff food writer for The San Francisco Chronicle) featured by The National Association of Specialty Food Trade, Inc. concerning raw hard cheese:

The concern here is Listeria, which can harm a fetus. So do physicians have science behind them when they tell pregnant patients to forego all raw-milk cheese?

Studies suggest not. Although high-moisture, unripened cheeses like cottage cheese and queso fresco and soft cheeses such as Brie and Camembert can support Listeria growth, aged raw-milk cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano, English Cheddar, Gruyère and Emmenthal cannot. They’re too dry, too low in pH, too high in salt. When Listeria turns up in cheese, it’s almost always in moist, soft cheese made with milk that was improperly pasteurized or contaminated after pasteurization. There have been several large outbreaks of listeriosis associated with Hispanic-style cheeses prepared under non-commercial conditions.
.
The FDA’s own risk assessment puts hard cheese last in Listeria potential among 23 common foods, including produce (www.foodsafety.gov/~dms/lmr2-toc.html).
.
From the standpoint of Listeria risk, it would make more sense to warn pregnant women away from fruits, vegetables or deli meats than to caution them about aged raw-milk cheese. Aged raw-milk cheeses are excellent sources of calcium and protein, needed by pregnant women.

Don’t be concerned you are missing out, if you refuse to go raw – whether it’s due to your pregnancy or not. The same article reassures its readers that they can enjoy pasteurized cheese products equitably: “In the hands of a good cheesemaker, pasteurized milk does just fine.” Consumption of raw dairy products remains a pretty contentious issue (understatement intentional), which you can get a good sense of at this site
