You may or may not have heard of kelp noodles, but they are my go-to for getting my noodle fix. Caveman Carl probably did not have kelp noodles, but they are on the market, so why not use them? A great alternative to pasta or rice, these babies are packed with vitamins and minerals. Here’s a short article from Livestrong on The Health Benefits of Kelp Noodles.
This preparation is only a guideline, you can sub any vegetables, fresh herbs or protein. You’ve already learned how to sear scallops, so they would be a good option. You could even whisk in some parsnip puree to give the sauce a bit more body… Be creative, hone your Culinary Fitness and don’t forget to, “Keep It Paleo!”

Preparation Instructions for the Chicken:
“Keep It Paleo!”
Before cooking we have about 20oz of chicken, then after cooking gives us about 16oz. With 1oz equaling one block, that gives us 16 blocks.
The two peppers will give us a combined block, ½ from each of them. One onion cuts up into 1 cup so with ½ cup equaling one block, that gives us 2 blocks form the onion. We have another additional ½ block form the 1 zucchini, with another ½ coming form the ginger. 3 cups of broccoli cooked equals one block. Additionally we get 2 more blocks form the two tablespoons of garlic. 2 tablespoons gives us abut 18 coves and with 10 cloves equaling one block, we can round that to 2 blocks for a total of 8 carbohydrate blocks.
The lite coconut milk gives us 12 fat blocks. In one can we have about 400g of milk and 33 grams equal one block, giving us 12 blocks total. Additionally we get 18 blocks from the 2 tablespoons of oil. There are 9 blocks in one tablespoon as 1/3 of a teaspoon equals one block.
This curry gives can be broken down into 4 4-protien, 2-carb, 7 fat block meal. Its slightly heavy on the fat side, but its ok to occasionally have a few additional fat blocks. You can also take them out of other meals throughout the day to balance your day out.
