Steak Sandwich (Paleo / Keto) (30 Min Meal)

When I stopped keeping kosher and before I started adhering to a paleo-style diet, there were a brief few months when I ate many sandwiches. I’ve always loved bread, and the combination of bread and meat and spreads satisfied all of my cravings.

Paleo Soup – Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Paleo soup – one of the perfect healthy foods post-wisdom tooth extraction, after a few too many pints of ice cream. My mouth won’t really open more than an inch right now, hence the baby spoon in the below picture. To be totally frank, I spent the first 24 hours after my extraction eating non-paleo foods such as Halo Top (gasp!) and Skyr yogurt (which is incredible, by the way). But I wanted to go back to eating cleaner now that I’ve adjusted to some of my restrictions.
