Herbed Primal Ham & Cheese Sandwich

It’s Sunday morning, the sun is out, birds are chirping, and I’m flying down a hill on my carbon road-bike at forty miles per hour… What thoughts are going on in my head?  “What’s for breakfast?!?!?”  This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you an “Herbed Primal Ham & Cheese Sandwich”.  Once I got home, I immediately got to work and toasted my Almond Paleo Bread.  No Wonder Bread here, sorry!  I have learned (the hard way) that gluten, grains, soy, and all that other processed stuff that typical breads contain are detrimental to the body, and to the mind.  After a struggle with years of heart-burn, zits, bloating, and feeling like I had to work-out like a mad man just to leverage my waist-line….  I’ve learned that cutting out the gluten and processed junk was the first step to a better me.  And after acquiring Lyme Disease from a tick bite along with Leaky Gut from antibiotics for a simple ear-infection, I then was in a horrible state… Barely able to walk or even sit without pains throughout my entire body.  And here’s how I got around all that misery.  Hint: It starts with quality food.

First of all, grains, as I mentioned in the previous paragraph, were the first to go.  The bloating went away, the waist-line decreased, my mental clarity kicked in, and so much more was improved.  I cannot say enough about me finding Paleo Bread as it allowed me to continue to enjoy bread, but without the processed items that traditional breads have.  Plus it’s got only one net carb, which helps me lead a low-carb lifestyle.  Some folks eat 200, 300, or more grams of carbs per day… Can you say excessive?   I may eat anywhere from 30-100 in a day, I vary…  But Paleo Bread is how I can keep that carb count just where I want it.

Next up, I eliminated dairy.  Now you are probably saying “But wait, this is Primal, there’s cheese on this sandwich…. You lair!”  Okay, okay, hold your horses.  I eliminated dairy for about six months, then I reintroduced quality dairy; one cheese or kefir at a time.  Testing the waters, I noticed how I felt, how my body reacted, and judged which dairy allowed me to continue to feel good.  Some cheese gives me an itchy throat, some give me zits (usually on my jaw area), and some don’t bother me at all.  Today’s goat cheese from our local farm is enhanced with dill, and does the trick for me.

Nightshades were another trigger that I needed to play with; you may not need to, unless you suffer from aches, pains, autoimmune issues, and even heart-burn.  Peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, and potatoes are the major players here, and as you can see none are featured in this meal; or most of my meals for that matter.  Although I will admit, fresh tomatoes and raw peppers really don’t bug me too much.  But if I consume any eggplant, a decent amount of tomato sauce, or a throw a pepper in my smoothies I will immediately get achy, and heart-burn which will keep me up at night for hours.   Knowing your triggers is half the battle.

Ingredients:

  1. Toast Paleo Bread to perfection
  2. Add Paleo Mayo, ham, goat cheese, greens, basil, and season with salt and pepper.

Beans definitely were a trigger for me, and as I treated dairy, I would do the same for legumes…. Eliminate them, and then if you are really craving them or miss them, reintroduce them one at a time.  But keep it to organic, dried beans, soak ‘em and sprout ‘em, and see how you feel.  Your body talks all the time, you just need to carefully listen.

This meal has quality fats in a home-made mayo that we make almost weekly, through the help from the 500 Paleo Recipes cookbook…. It has a nice organic nitrate-free ham, from Applegate.  I’ve included nutritious greens from several different sources, along with some herby basil that makes this sandwich pop.  The fresh goat cheese is from our local farm, and has dill included giving that much more “oomph”, and we are stuffing this all between two slices of almond Paleo Bread!  All in all, it’s a very zesty and filling sandwich that is kept low in carbs, low in inflammation, it’s nutrient-dense, and it’s delicious!!!
