Okay I’ve had these recipes stored in my brain and never have written them down before, so you might see a few new recipes appear on the blog.
In the last year I have gone strict Paleo and I have found that it has really helped with controlling my fibromyalgia. To sum it up I avoid all dairy (even butter and ghee), all grains including rice and quinoa, no legumes, I even have found that guar gum had been an issue because it is from legumes. So that pretty much eliminated anything coconut milk-based, which was what a disappointment because I LOVE coconut bliss ice cream. I also found there is only ONE almond milk that does NOT contain guar gum in it and that is the Pacific organic vanilla almond milk (believe me I searched All labels to find this one).
I have found the Paleo diet had really turn everything around for me and I make sure to stick with it, no cheating. I do recommend it for anybody who has autoimmune pain issues, it is the cleanest diet I have found. Also a side note tip to survive the paleo diet without coconut milk for your coffee, I use Liquid Stevia in the vanilla cream flavor to black coffee and it really makes it taste yummy.
If you would like to hear more about how I put my fibromyalgia in REMISSION using the paleo diet please comment below. It’s not all 100% diet, I also have supplements I use that help as well. But I would say it’s 95% diet, and 5% exercise and supplements. That is not an exaggeration. Occasionally I will get a flare up, but that is usually when I eat out and the cooks got something wrong. I will also in another post give tips for how to eat out at restaurants, because I have found that my biggest challenge.
Now on to the recipe!
This isn’t really like a Chinese stir-fry, but more like a fresh American Thai stir-fry. I think you’ll like this recipe, it always is a staple in my house. I’ve tried it with carrots instead of celery and it’s not the best. So subbing veggies might give it a interesting twist.
1 Tbs avocado oil
3 Aidells chicken apple sausage, chopped (Costco has best price)
1/2 Onion, chopped
1 cup red cabbage, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
1/2 tsp Salt,
1/2 tsp Garlic powder,
1 Tbs cumin,
1 tsp dried basil,
1/4 tsp celery seed, (optional)
1/4 tsp Cajuns choice creole seasoning, (or any creole seasoning you can find, optional)
1/4 tsp ground ginger.
1/2 tsp (or a few squirts) Worcestershire sauce
I start by chopping the cabbage, onion, and celery first and then add it to a frying pan with a little bit of avocado oil. Then turn the heat on to medium heat and then I start chopping up the sausage to add to the mix and I let that cook until it’s almost halfway done, stirring occasionally (look at the cabbage and onions to tell how done they are).
Then I add in my chopped mushrooms. Add the dry seasonings then stir. Then before it is done I add the worcestershire sauce. Make sure you do not over cool the veggies. The sausage is precooked so it’s ok if it’s not browned.
Sometimes I add this to a paleo wrap (the coconut meat tortilla) to change it up a bit. (You can find them in the bread/bakery section at Whole Foods or Natural Grocers.
I hope you try this super easy recipe and let me know how you like it! All spices were guesstimates since I just throw it all in the pan when I cook.
