How To Cook Over Easy Eggs [With Video + Infographic]

how to cook over easy eggs perfectly

I eat a fair number of eggs – it’s a super fast and easy breakfast (especially with a few strips of bacon). But I’ve always had trouble making perfect over easy eggs (which is how I like them) until Jeremy’s mom taught me this simple trick!

1. What got you interested in the Paleo lifestyle?

What got me interested in the Paleo lifestyle is a long story which I will try to sum up in a few sentences. After many years of being sick, having abdominal by-pass surgery at age 40 due to a birth defect which took over 7 years to find, I needed to recover. I had to find a way to provide nutrient dense foods to my 40 year old severely malnourished body. I tried raw. I tried vegan. I tried vegetarian. I have to be gluten free due to a wheat allergy and Celiac Disease, so following the Standard American Diet wouldn’t work for me. I felt hopeless, frustrated, HUNGRY and overwhelmed. I had a friend who introduced me to the GAPS diet and that lead me to the Paleo lifestyle.

What I love most about the Paleo lifestyle is that I don’t have to adjust a ton of recipes. I am allergic to sugar, wheat, all gluten, dairy, some legumes and corn to name the most common ones. Standard recipes, whether they be the Standard American Diet, vegan, vegetarian, raw or gluten free all rely heavily upon those 5 major allergens for me. Finding Paleo was finding my freedom from hours of substitutions and adjustments.

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

I bought some lemon thyme (a lemony-tasting thyme plant as the name suggests) from Whole Foods a few months ago and it’s been flourishing in the garden despite the drought here.

And since it’s been so hot in California over the past few weeks, I thought some lemon thyme infused iced tea would help cool things down a bit.  And if you prefer a sweet-tasting iced tea, then try the plum infused tea recipe here.

Plum Infused Iced Tea Recipe [No Added Sugar, Easy, Delicious, Healthy]

My mum’s plum tree went crazy this year, and we had plums everywhere. If you open the fridge, there’s a whole bucket full of juicy plums, and if you walk outside, you have to be careful not to squish any plums that rolled onto the ground!

So, to help her eat her delicious plums, I’ve been devising new recipes using them.

This plum infused iced tea is superb for the summer months – plus it’s simple and gives a nice twist to your typical iced teas.

1. What got you interested in the Paleo lifestyle?

I spent most of my college and post-grad years trying a variety of diets without much success. All I ever got for it was minimal weight loss combined with extreme hunger and blood sugar regulation issues. That all changed when 18 months ago, after starting a job with a very long commute, I starting listening to a lot of podcasts. During that time I came across the Balanced Bites podcast with Diane Sanfilippo and Liz Wolfe. After one episode, I was hooked. I listened to dozens of episodes and immediately began changing my diet. The principles of a paleo lifestyle just clicked with me.. I realized that the factory-made, fat-free and fiber-filled food I had been eating, which I thought would make me healthy, was actually making me sick. Just a few months after going paleo, I had lost weight and the constant headaches, body aches and stomach issues that had plagued my college years were gone. I felt amazing.

How to Make Cashew Cheese [Paleo, Vegan, Dairy-Free]

how to make paleo cashew cream recipe http://paleomagazine.com/how-to-make-cashew-cheese-paleo-vegan-dairy-free-recipe

Cheese was one of the last foods I stopped eating after starting a Paleo diet – it was simply too hard to resist at first.

Luckily, I found cashew cheese as an easy and delicious replacement. Give it a try and pin the infographic below on how to make cashew cheese so you don’t forget – it’s super easy to make and has a nice creamy texture very much like cream cheese. In fact, it also looks very similar to cream cheese.

My favorite use for cashew cheese is in this recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cashew cheese.

I used to love bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cheese – we would always make them as an appetizer when guests came over. But since going Paleo, I’ve had to change the recipe to get rid of the regular dairy cheese. Instead, I’ve replaced it with this amazing cashew cheese.

For steps on how to make cashew cheese, take a look at this recipe.
