  1. Slice the ham and warm in a skillet on the stove. Serve alongside applesauce and almonds.


  1. I diced up some ham this morning in an omelet and am so happy to see that it is on the Paleo friendly list! I thought I was slipping a little more than just adding cheese (I KNOW, but I can’t do eggs without it.). This looks really good! That seems like a lot of ham for two people… I might have to cut it down to 4 oz each, but I’ll be trying this for sure with hubby one weekend!

  2. I was wondering where to find nitrate free ham. Thank you for mentioning Boar’s Head. My daughter just made some homemade apple sauce w/o sugar. Will be making this soon.

  3. Is there somewhere on the site to ask general questions? I’m wondering if your servings should change if weigh more and with exercise? Also was wondering what a serving size is of fruits and veggies? I started the menu plan yesterday! Live this sit so far! Thanks so much!

  4. I am wondering about corn. Is it left out or in? I’m just into the diet for a few days and am already noticing some detox symptoms. I also have fibromyalgia and do expect more discomfort due to detox. Hopefully not as bad as when I detoxed from yeast. Horrible!!!! Will following the plan also detox the yeast? Thank you for your attention and response. I do appreciate all you have done with this site and helping so many of us.

    1. Phyllis P – Corn is a grain (and a very common allergen), so it’s out. And yes, the yeast may clear up with the diet alone, but it could also require some herbal/pharmaceutical care, depending on how severe it is.

  5. This had mixed reviews in our house. I loved it and will have it again. My daughter quite enjoyed it too but my husband wasn’t a fan. He tried heating the apple sauce up but he still wasn’t overly impressed. Looks like he’ll be sorting his own breakfast out when we have it again!
