A Truly Paleo, Fun, Summertime Dessert
Many people in the Paleosphere would consider "paleo" and "dessert" to be oxymorons. However, I have found a way to get a hint of sweet without breaking my 30 Day Challenge rules. I was inspired by this post from Simple Bites to try grilling a peach. I halved a peach, buttered some foil, laid the peach cut sides down on the foil, and cooked it slowly for about 20 minutes (the grill was on high but I put it on the warming rack up top). When it was done I sprinkled some cinnamon over the cut side. The end result was a juicy, warmed peach that was comforting and filling, but didn't leave me with a tummy ache. I also tried this in my oven last night with good results. Even my husband (who hates cooked fruit) ate one. Sometime when I'm not in the middle of a Paleo Challenge I'll sprinkle brown sugar on the foil and put the peaches on top of that. I'm also excited to try this trick with pears and apples come fall.
