Paleo Olive, Egg, and Sardine Gelatin Mini Aspics –
Okay to understand this recipe you must channel your inner Julia Child to appreciate gelatin. Aspics were huge a few decades ago and are cornerstone of French cuisine. Gelatin has fallen out of vogue along with it’s unpopular buddy saturated fat and cholesterol. But guess what is in fashion: diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Hmmmm wondering if there is connection there…
For thousands of generations people used gelatin along with meat and saturated fat to satisfy their hunger and keep themselves healthy. I shoved this delightful meat gelatin into a butter lettuce shell and ate it like a taco. Score!
Gelatin is used for weight loss and for treating osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and brittle bones (osteoporosis). Some people also use it for strengthening bones, joints, and fingernails. Gelatin is also used for improving hair quality and to shorten recovery after exercise and sports-related injury. –from WebMD.com
