Making Your Own Paleo Street Food

Food trucks are everywhere, and amongst them, I’m happy to say, are a growing number of Paleo-based mobile establishments.

Not only is Paleo dining growing in the food truck scene, it’s also beginning to make more of an appearance in the corporate world.  One client reported to me that the software company she works for actually has a lunch station offering completely dedicated to serving those of the Paleo persuasion!

But what to do if you’re either in an area where there are no Paleo food trucks?

Make your own street food!

Street food, by definition, is “is ready-to-eat food or drink sold in a street or other public place, such as a market or fair, by a hawker or vendor, often from a portable stall”.     

Not that you need to sell it, per se, but making one’s one ready-to-eat food to go comes in rather handy for those on the go times we all have in our busy schedules.

If you implement the two, one-hour in the kitchen sessions I write about in Paleoista, you’ll have all you need to create your own versions of street food right in your own kitchen! 

Just a few easy ideas include:

  • Bibb lettuce leaves wrapped around leftover, roasted, pastured chicken topped with chopped tomato, avocado and cilantro (Paleo tacos!)
  • Red bell peppers with the top cut off, stuffed with garlicky,  spinach sauteed ground bison, eaten with a celery stick scoop (Edible Utenstils!)
  • Smoothie to go- kale, blueberries, avocado, soft boiled and chilled eggs, chilled herbal tea and a dash of ginger & turmeric.  (Stick in a straw and go!)

Let your creativity guide you and you can’t go wrong!
