Turnip Home Fries

I just watched "I, Caveman" - a documentary following a group of people trying to survive 10 days in the Colorado wild with only paleolithic supplies and tools. It was hard - 2 people quit, but the rest really managed to make it work! They built shelter, purified water, hunted small game and even managed to bring down an elk. The whole experience made me both want to try it myself, and really appreciate my stove! In homage, I'm sharing my awesome recipe for turnip home fries - they're super delicious, low cal, and low glycemic index.'s quick!

Turnip Home Fries

1/2 bag frozen turnips
A couple tablespoons of olive oil
A pinch of salt and pepper, or Mrs. Dash :)

Put the turnips in a pan and cook on high, stirring often, until melted and beginning to brown. Add the olive oil and the seasoning, turn to medium high, and stir often until golden brown all over! Probably 15 minutes total cook time. 

So yummy with eggs for breakfast, or with steak for dinner! Only thing - they're best hot out of the pan. 

Day 2 of Paleo experiment - going beautifully.

Breakfast: 2 fried eggs + 2 strips bacon
Lunch: chicken breast over salad, with carrots in balsamic vinegar and rosemary
Dinner: rest of the chicken leftover from lunch with almond butter on it, plus rest of Spanish Style Mussels from last night, and some delicious home fry turnips!
