A big appetite and a satisfying meal
I have not experienced this in a while, but after eating an omelet for breakfast and not eating the remainder of the day, by 6:30 pm I was absolutely ravished!!!! Not an IF day, but my food intake has not been very much the last few days, so this might have been "compounded hunger". Has this happened to any of you?
I had bought some fresh local grouper at the farmers market on Saturday and I marinated it over night. Marinade; garlic, onion, rice vinegar, splash of soy sauce, pepper en ketjap manis (a sweet soy sauce). The Ketjap is not strictly paleo/primal as it does have sugar, but for marinating and grilling purposes, I think it's OK. (sauces would be a different story)
Next I made a big bowl of sliced and diced veggies; onion, zucchini, yellow squash, yellow pepper, smashed garlic cloves, a jalapeno, fresh basil and japanese egg plant. Sprinkle with paprika, oregano, a dash of white wine. Drizzle with evoo and mix well.
Then just toss it all in the grill basket. These little baskets are fantastic.
Here's the fish;
This little fish holder also works great for grilling sliced onion and pineapple.
A salad of red leaf lettuce, romaine, cucumber, tomato, spring onion and grandma's dressing made the meal complete. I also had nice glass of red wine.
