Paleo Sushi


Camilla and I happen to love sushi. So when we went Paleo we ran into a little bit of a problem. No rice…No sushi. Thankfully we managed to figure out an amazing alternative. This is what we like to call Paleo Sushi. Don’t be scared away, this recipe is simple and easy. It’s also Paleo and easily customizable to your taste buds!


1 large cucumber
stuffings of your choice- I used lox, beets and avocado.
optional- coconut aminos and ginger
equipment- a thin knife (preferably a little flexible)


Wash your cucumber.
Cut the ends off your cucumber and cut your cucumber in half.
This is where the tricky part comes in…do your best to hollow out your cucumber. It doesn’t need to be perfect, you just need to be able to stuff if with all your delicious stuffing choices.
It’ll look something like this…
Now stuff the cucumber with your stuffings of choice. As a note, when stuffing it with lox, I found it easier to roll the lox up into a tub shape and then insert it.
After you’ve finished stuffing it’s time to cut it into individual pieces. Cut them to resemble your sushi roll of choice.

Then it’s time to enjoy. Ginger or coconut aminos make the perfect addition to your Paleo Sushi. This is one of those dishes that becomes easier the more times you make it. Not to mention that it packs a ton of nutritious food!

Eat The Rainbow

Image Via:

You may have heard the term “Eat The Rainbow” recently. It’s picking up steam in a big way throughout the health industry. It’s meaning is pretty simple, you’re supposed to eat as many colored foods as possible during each meal.

Here’s an example of what “Eating The Rainbow” might look like:

Red- Tomatoes
Orange- Sweet Potato
Yellow- Yellow Squash
Green- Spinach
Blue- Blueberries
Indigo/Violet- Eggplant

Don’t get worried! I know that looks like a ton of food. The point isn’t to overeat, or to eat too much in the attempt to consume all the colors of the rainbow. The point is that you try to incorporate as many colors as possible into your meals. You also want to change up the types of foods that are a specific color. For example, you wouldn’t always want to eat sweet potatoes to get your “orange” in, you could try carrots or an actual orange.

The reason “Eating The Rainbow” has become popular is because nutrient (i.e. minerals and vitamins) composition and levels can lead to foods being a particular color. Foods that are a strong color are said to have more of particular nutrients. So the theory behind “Eating The Rainbow” is that if you eat various colored foods, you’ll gain a more diverse group of nutrients in your diet.

Here’s to “Eating The Rainbow”!
