Paleo Korean food

I went to hot yoga this morning! I did the 65 minute hot hatha class. 105 degrees, 40% humidity… sounds awful, doesn’t it? I absolutely love hot yoga. The heat and the massive amounts of sweat pouring out of all the pores in your body aside, your body feels amazing – detoxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated! I seriously walk out of the studio with a body high every time. It definitely gets easier the more you go. The first time I went I felt so nauseous afterwards! I’m starting out with hot hatha for two reasons. 1. Hot Yoga Inc has a new student special where it’s $10 for 10 classes. 2. Hatha is low intensity. I’m trying to get used to the heat before I move on to real hot yoga – BIKRAM! Even with hatha, you get your heartrate going!

And now for some eats from the day! You can still eat a wide variety of cuisines while staying paleo and Korean is definitely one of them. I’ve decided that the majority of Korean dishes already are or can easily be paleo, you just have to skip the rice. I’ll definitely post more paleo Korean food in the near future!

Korean meatballs


According to my mom, Korean meatballs are already paleo. Sauté onions, green onions, carrots, and garlic. In a bowl mix the veggies with ground beef and some salt and pepper. Cook completely in a pan and then let cool. Beat a couple eggs together, dip the meatballs into eggs and cook again until the egg coating is done. I ate many more than pictured for lunch today… nom nom.

Korean beef stew (galbitahng)


This started as plain beef bone broth, which is the base for many Korean stews/soups. It’s now a simple beef stew with rib meat and some radish. It’s served with a little bit of minced garlic and chopped green onions, salt and pepper to taste.

Mid-day snack plate


Celery, baby carrots, prosciutto and hot coppa. The hot coppa has a couple of nonpaleo ingredients listed as being less than 2%… 98% is good enough for me! I LOVE cured meat. Perfect for snacking with no cooking required.
