Paleo Baba Ganoush-ish

Paleo Baba Ganoush-ish - Hotty hotty Megan Fox eats Paleo!  I was just wondering what famous people are claiming to be Paleo, and was excited to see her on the list.  JESSICA BIEL!  One of my favorite actresses (I love that she is beautiful athletic celebrity, not the stick-like model type)!  I wonder if she’ll get Justin Timberlake to join the gang?  Professional basketball player Grant Hill, Eva La Rue from CSI Miami (she was probably the reason I watched that show as long as I did), Matthew McConaughey (getting healthier again after loosing so much weight for recent roles – by the way, have you seen True Detective staring him and Woody Harrelson?), baseball star Hunter Pence (see video below), Uma Thurman, Miley Cyrus, Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers’ quarterback), Kobe Bryant (LA Lakers’ shooting guard)….  Wicked!  Sexy stars’ top level athletes: I love it!  Do you know of any other big names that have become Paleo?

Do you think any of these celebs need a personal chef?  Jessica, just drop me a line!

*Note from Holley:  More Paleo athletes:  Amanda Beard (youngest American Olympic medalist in swimming history), Apolo Ohno (8 time Olympic medalist in speedskating), Caroline Nichols (2 time USA hockey Olympian), Frank Mir (MMA Fighter), Novak Djokovic (professional tennis player and Grand Slam Champion), and many others.

Hercules (Greek: Heracles) was probably mostly Paleo right?  Minus bread and alcohol, I imagine.  I don’t think Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Paleo.  But have you seen the movie trailer for the Hercules movie yet?  Looks awesome:

This is a super quick and easy take on Paleo baba ganoush.  I realize that the traditional one is roasted, but I wanted to make something fast and easy with ingredients that I usually have in the kitchen.  So enjoy this eggplant dish!

Paleo Baba Ganoush-ish
Paleo Baba Ganoush (ish) - is a fast easy twist on the traditional. Eat it as a side dish or a dip.
  • 1 large eggplant (pealed and ½ inch cubed)
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  1. In a large pot heat oil and add eggplant.
  2. Add ¼ - ½ cups of water to keep from sticking to the pot. Cook until soft.
  3. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well.
I didn't mash this up like a traditional baba ganoush dip, but left some chunks of eggplant, which made it a nice side dish.
