Help! I need paleo friendly comfort foods!

Posted by   + Show Post

Hey ladies, 

I've been following a mostly paleo lifestyle since March, but it's getting tough!  

Im 7 weeks pregnant and while my morning sickness isn't horrible like last time, it's definitely there.  Saltines, bagels and other starchy snacks seem to be about all I can think about eating before noon!  Just thinking of other food makes my stomach flop. Because of this I've already gained 4lbs!! Plus the added grains is bringing back my sugar cravings with a vengeance!!!   I'm in need of ideas!   My normal breakfast of an omelette is definitely off the table (pun intended). And I can't quite handle fruit until my stomach is settled after the bagel. I tried just salmon this morning and while I didn't get sicker, the queasiness didn't go away.

LOL

We do eat very well for having such a "restrictive" diet.  Good food!

I've been in a very pumpkin-ish mood, ( I think because I'm really ready for fall), so I'm glad you posted so many pumpkin recipes. I made Paleo pumpkin bread last night, but I wanted to branch out a little and try something other than the bread and the pancakes.

Quoting michiganmom116:


Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

  • 1½ cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup  canned pumpkin (or cook and puree pumpkin yourself)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp  ground cinnamon
  • 1½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup raw honey (optional)
  • 2 tsp almond butter
  • 1 Tbs sliced almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
  2. Coat 6 muffin tins with coconut oil (or use paper muffin cups and add 1/2 tsp melted coconut oil to batter).
  3. Mix all ingredients and pour evenly into tins.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes on the middle rack.
  5. Sprinkle almonds on top immediately after taking them out of the oven.

Btw Rhonda, I made the Paleo chocolate pudding again last night and tried 1 tbsp of raw honey as opposed to two. Uh, nope. Absolutely needs 2 or the avocado taste is presentable in full force. Everyone loves that pudding though, I had people at work fooled.
