    mrsbailer reacted to figbeet in SO GOOD!!! Chicken with Creamy Sundried Tomato Sauce   
    So this recipe looked delicious:  http://damndelicious.net/2014/11/22/chicken-sun-dried-tomato-cream-sauce/... like REALLY delicious.
     
    Obviously, heavy cream and parmesan are out, so I tweaked the recipe - take out the bad stuff and substitute with 3/4 cup of coconut cream... CRAZY GOOD!!  (It goes without saying: brown the chicken in ghee.)  You don't miss the cream and parmesan at all, and you don't taste the coconut - you just get the creaminess.
     
    I made it for company and they went nuts over it.  Making it next time we have people for dinner too (don't judge - they don't know each other ).

    Thing is, people don't identify things like whole grain bread, soy milk, oatmeal, low-fat cheese (etc.) as "processed, artificial, homogenized, hydrogenated, chemical-laden, or hormonally imbalanced imitation food products do you consume". They see those things as healthy. Heck, some people even believe that "grain-fed beef" is natural!
    And you can bet that when the medical community will realize they've made mistakes, they'll be the last one to admit it. So a good percentage of people will continue to believe that the Food Pyramid is actually a good template of what they should be eating...

    Sh*t people say... There's just so much!!
    "Fat-free [insert processed food here, my favorite is candy]! I can eat them without guilt!"
    "But egg yolks will raise your cholesterol and give you a heart attack"
    "There's no difference between normal meat and organic meat"
    "I don't eat bacon... So much fat"
    "I bought a fat-free, egg-free bread!"
    "Avocados are so good! Too bad they have a lot of fat"
    "You don't eat grains? How about whole wheat [No.] How about sweet potato crackers? [No.] How about oats? [No.]"

    I find it easier sometimes to just say I eat Paleo, other times I say I eat a simple diet of whole, unprocessed foods. I don't mind the Paleo tag and have found that often telling somebody I eat Paleo opens up discussion cause they ask what that is. My sister has given up all red meat, pork and hardly eats any chicken or fish. Her personal trainer (that she is crushing on) is a vegan and I think that is influencing her a lot. I LOVE to say Paleo to her cause it bugs her. lol

    This is my favorite one line ever posted in this forum. I don't understand people's obsession with bread either!

    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."

    This thread made me laugh so hard!!!!
    ...when you check for sugar free bacon EVERY time you go to the grocery store, even though you were just there 2 days ago and they didn't have any.
    ...when you bring your own kale to a BBQ at a friends house to make kale chips to eat with your lettuce burger.
