In an effort to enjoy an all-inclusive easy-to-cook meal (that is, inclusive of all sources, but without having to make foods individually), I concocted this: greens, nuts, and ham.
1 thick slice of ham (3/4 to 1 pound), cubed
1-2 bunches of kale (or any greens)
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 C cashews*, crushed (I crush them by clenching them tightly in my fist)
1-2 tbsp coconut oil (or other fat)
1 apple, cored and sliced
|One bunch of kale (raw), de-stemmed and torn into pieces|
|3/4 pound of ham, cubed|
- Heat coconut oil in wok or frying pan over medium-high heat
- Toss in the cubed ham. Cook for five minutes, then add garlic and stir. Let cook a few more minutes.
- Add the kale
- Stir occasionally until the kale wilts
- Add the nuts last, stir and cook for three to five more minutes
*You can use any nut you wish - just remember that peanuts are NOT nuts, they are legumes. The last two times I made this, I used walnuts and they tasted great!
Vegan potential: Just replace the ham with cubed tofu. Main difference is that you'll have to cook the tofu much longer than the ham, if you like it prepared firmly. Of course, soy is a no-no in Paleo land, but if you're a non-Paleo vegan, this meal's for you!
