It’s been a while since we posted our last Sean Can’t Cook episode. So in honor of Paleo Week on UW Radio next week, we’re hooking up some Crustless Quiche with Summer Squash!
Diane Sanfilippo, author of The Practical Paleo Nutrition E-book joins me to lend a helping hand via Skype. Buy and download her book HERE and get 26 easy, inexpensive recipes and tons of info on how to get your Paleo lifestyle started.
This is some good stuff!!
Ingredients: 4 Tbsp coconut oil 1/2 a yellow onion, diced 12 eggs, beaten 5-6 small summer squash (shredded in a food processor or by hand) 3 green onions, chopped 1 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped Paprika (optional)
Preparation: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the coconut oil in a small frying pan and then pour it into a 9×11” glass baking dish to grease the bottom. Then sautee your diced yellow onion in the pan with the remaining bit of melted oil. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. (Okay, I actually had some cooked onions on-hand leftover from a previous night’s cooking, but you can make them fresh.)
‘Tis the season to lie in bed and get my read on! These past three or four weeks I’ve had my head in the books. I read Deep Nutrition by Cate Shanahan M.D. three times and can’t wait to read it again. That book is a masterpiece, in my opinion. When I was sick as a dog in the Bay Area, I read Robb Wolf’sPaleo Solution and reread Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint. Then I moved on to Genetic Nutritioneering by Jeffrey Bland. And now, I’m just about done with Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudus. My mind is literally spinning with all of this great information!
In his book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell states, “…researchers have settled on what they believe is the magic number for true expertise: ten thousand hours.” In other words, to be a true expert you have to spend at least 10,000 hours studying your craft. If I had to guess, I would figure that I’ve put in about 6343 hours. I’ve got a long way to go.
I know. I know. I was supposed to be reading The China Study right now. Sorry, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Not that I’m avoiding it at all. I honestly just have better things to do and more great books to read with the limited time I’ve got. I’ll get to it one of these days.
Instead, I pulled Robb Wolf’s bestseller The Paleo Solution off the shelf. Great choice. This book rocks. Full of great info and pretty darn funny, too! Robb’s got jokes.
Today, I’m getting my learn on about the many hormones involved in hunger and satiety. A lot of people I consult with just can’t stop eating. They’re perpetually hungry. Nothing satisfies them, especially the high-carb, low-fat diet they’ve been scared into consuming. Not so coincidentally, these same folks can’t recall the last time they got a restful night’s sleep. They either take hours to fall asleep or they wake up every 2 or 3 hours. Sometimes both. That’s gotta suck.
September was certainly the month of risk for my friends and me. I’ve always been a firm believer in getting out of our comfort zones to move forward in life. People thought I was crazy to leave a steady personal training career to pursue my Internet dreams.
Now, I’ve got the coolest job ever!
Last week, I stepped out of my zone again and endorsed my first supplement on Underground Wellness Radio. Even my closest friends thought it was a bad idea.
The response was more positive than I ever imagined.
