I read a twitter comment a while back about why do so many Paleo people blog about cookies and cakes. Well that did make me chuckle and my sister and I have this continual conversation. For anyone who is a sugar burner – rather than a fat burner, they may well wonder because isn’t primal/paleo eating all about what cave women/men ate and we don’t think they had ovens then and don’t you just eat meat? Or some other such thing.
What underlies our conversation about cakes, cookies and sweet treats is the wonderment of not being addicted to sweet stuff and the joy of creating something delicious that you can eat and leave. There isn’t that continual call of “eat me, eat me and EAT ME RIGHT NOW” from the cake tin. There is the satisfaction of creating something with half or quarter the amount of sweetness of traditional recipes and using a sweetener than has at least some nutritional merit. There is the intellectual thought gone into changing a recipe from a grain base to a grain free base (and a nut free flakey pastry still elludes me). So anyway I now use the #pimpingpaleo as a general thumbs up and stand proud all you Primal/Paleo cake bloggers! And if anyone has cracked the nut free flakey pastry share that link right now 🙂
So rant of the day is over and I say why wait for desert for this yummy tart. I am sure anytime is a great time for this, slightly sweet, slightly tart, Lovely Lemon Tart!!
