Yesterday was the Sydney Paleo meet-up group’s Paleo Barbeque. We met at beautiful Tamarama beach, where there are a couple of public barbecues, which were in hot demand yesterday! The weather couldn't have been more perfect for the barbecue, with sunshine and beautiful blue skies!
I spent yesterday morning making a few dishes from the new “Make it Paleo” cookbook, to take along to the barbecue with me.
I made the guacamole to go with some raw vegetables I cut up.
I made the barbecue sauce, which went beautifully with the organic grass fed streak I took along. This had a bit of a kick to it with the mustard and paprika and proved very popular. I’ll definitely be making this one again over the summer.
I was really excited to try the Fennel & Orange salad. The combination of the anise flavour of the fennel and the peppery flavour of the radishes made for an unusual, but very enjoyable salad.
I grated up some carrot, which I mixed with shredded coconut (I love the combination)
Finally, I roasted some seasonal vegetables which were colourful and delicious!
It was great to see such a good turn out to the barbecue – Paleo in Sydney seems to be well and truly gaining momentum. Despite a few people attending for the first time, we were an easy group to spot; as the only party at the beach without bread, crisps and junk food!
I hope we’ll be able to have a few more outdoor Paleo meet-ups this summer – it seems so much more Primal!
