With grilling season here, it's time to think about all the scrumptious sides to have with our meats! Paleo sides are hard to come by – I mean. I can only eat so much salad. We're working on taking some of our favorite traditional summer barbecue sides and recreating them paleo-style.
Now, some may argue that potatoes are not paleo but if eating potatoes help you with a paleo lifestyle, then by all means do it. Like all good things, eat them in moderation. I've noticed that I keep losing weight if I only eat potatoes 1-2 times a week – any more than that and I stay at the same weight. I don't know if it is all that starch or what but I try to keep a lid on the potato eating. And, with all things we talk about here, I am not a Doctor and my stories are anecdotal retellings of my experiences, not to be taken as medical advice. Before embarking on a paleo lifestyle, consult your Doctor or a Nutritionist.
Xaver developed this recipe for a homemade potato salad using homemade olive oil mayonnaise as a base. It's pretty delish and your friends will never know it's paleo!
You can use russet potatoes too but I like the flavor of the red potatoes. And it seems that organic red potatoes are easier to find in the market. Dr. Oz recommends that you must buy organic potatoes because of the pesticide levels in farmed potatoes. If you can't find organic, consider growing your own. My mom is growing hers in this tower that is supposed to yield 100 pounds of potatoes a year. That is a lot of potato salad!
