These twice-baked pesto potatoes are creamy, flavorful, and absolutely delicious!
I know what you’re thinking. Potatoes aren’t Paleo. Also, isn’t her blog called “My Sweet Potato Life?” She says she loves sweet potatoes the best, but then she turns around and makes a dish with white potatoes. Traitor!
First things first, I still love sweet potatoes . . . but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate white potatoes. I’m Irish, so potatoes are kind of in my blood.
Secondly, white potatoes are considered Whole30. I know that doesn’t automatically make them Paleo, but they work for me. Some people on the Paleo diet avoid potatoes because they rank highly on the glycemic index, and they are full of carbohydrates. However, I think they are a great source of nutrient-rich, plant-based starch when eaten in moderation. As a runner, I also appreciate the carbohydrates that they provide.
As a food lover, I appreciate the flavor and DELICIOUSNESS of these twice-baked pesto potatoes!
These twice-baked pesto potatoes are very easy to prepare: simply boil the potatoes until soft, blend with the remaining ingredients, and bake everything together! The ingredients are super simple, too: potatoes, egg yolks, pesto, oil of choice, and salt. Yum!These twice-baked pesto potatoes are creamy, flavorful, and absolutely delicious! tell a friend
I’ve decided to narrow down my blog topic a bit further: from Paleo recipes to easy Paleo recipes. Too often, people think that a healthy diet is unattainable because it’s expensive or difficult. I’m here to tell you that Paleo doesn’t have to be either of those things! Sure, almond flour is $9/pound and wheat flour is $0.33/pound, but that shouldn’t stand in your way. Most produce is incredibly cheap, and (bonus) it’s incredibly healthy! Produce should constitute the bulk of your purchases on the Paleo diet, anyway. We would all be healthier if we just ate more plants. Everyone has a different idea of what’s healthy or not, but we can all agree that veggies are good for us — right?
I post two new Paleo recipes each week. I try to provide recipes for a variety of diets, too. All of my recipes are completely possible for the average home cook to prepare, because I want to dispel the myth that healthy eating is difficult. Two years ago, I was a terrible cook. Now, I have a food blog. If I can do this, you can do this.
