Primal Day 1 - Lunch

Primal diet day one lunch consisted of homemade coconut curry chicken with a side salad of arugula and tomatoes.

Coconut Curry Chicken Ingredients

2 Chicken breasts
1 Can coconut milk
Curry powder to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Raw cashews - on top is best, so they toast and get crunchy!
Sliced mushrooms

Combine all ingredients in a pan (I use this Pyrex Pan), I put the lid on and shake to mix everything up, you can also marinate it for a few hours if you have the time. Cook for about 45 minutes at 400 degrees. I have also slow cooked it in a crockpot, though the nuts get a bit soggy this way, but it is worth the trade off for the ease of doing this.

Arugula Salad

2 handfuls of washed arugula
1 handful of grape tomatoes
Shredded cheese (depending on how strict your version of paleo is)
Balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste (olive oil and lemon juice is a nice alternative)
Salt and Peper to taste

This is the cookbook we will be using and planning our meals from with more resources added as we go along. Due to both of us being pretty picky, we have modified the recipes we use. Interesting side note, though the cookbook has coconut curry chicken in it, I came up with the recipe we use before getting this cook book...for a not so great cook that I am, that is pretty impressive!

We both love this meal, it is super easy and absolutely delicious!

Do you think it sounds good? Any suggestions to improve this meal or suggestions for future primal/paleo meals?  


  1. That Cashew Chicken looks awesome. How much curry powder is appropriate? Never made anything like that before.

  2. It was more of an eyeballing, probably like 2 tsp's or so...I would keep adding until the spiciness reached your is not exact :)

  3. Oh, my gosh that looks so good you just made me incredibly hungry. I love curry! But...I should mention that spicy food definitely makes erythromelalgia worse. Took me a few times of eating Thai before I realized why my feet had been burning. On a good day, I'm willing to sacrifice for the curry. Not going to lie, but be careful with the spice if it's a bad day. Same goes for salsa.
