So…guess what I just did? No, you’re not hallucinating (although maybe I am)…I’m doing a figure competition. In an attempt to avoid losing any more readership than I already have after dropping this ball on the world, I started a new blog to document my experience–I’m still Paleo but I’m changing up the structure of my meals and my workouts quite a bit. I’m already a week into it and frankly I’m impressed my marriage has survived this much of the madness…Go ahead, get your digs in now…
OK moving on. Like 95% of the diet my first week of competition prep was salmon and sweet potatoes. Or sweet potatoes and salmon. God, 12 weeks of this is gonna get old. Anyhow, in an attempt to make the whole thing less boring I’ve been throwing all kinds of seasonings together with all of the “safe sauces” I own–coconut aminos, fish sauce, lemon/lime juices, mustard, vinegar, you name it. And go figure, a few of them have been nastified on par with raw sewage. Fish sauce and mustard do NOT belong together, just sayin’. BUT I did hit on this little gem of a combo last night and figured, what the hell, I haven’t been cooking much for the blog since the Vegan Series…let’s share a Paleo Bodybuilding Recipe that doesn’t taste like paper.
6 oz Salmon
2 t Coconut Oil
2 t Coconut Aminos
2 t Fresh Grated Ginger
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper
1/4 t Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pat the salmon dry with paper towels. Brush each side with the coconut oil and sprinkle with the seasonings.
Sear over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
If you’re trying to lean out, serve with steamed veggies. If you’re a normal person, serve with something delicious.
