TIPS TO MAKE THE PALEO DIET A ROUTINE PART OF YOUR LIFESTYLE:
For breakfast, make an omelette – non stick pan fry a little bacon (for tasty good fat) add veggies (lots), add omega-3-enriched or free-range eggs and diced turkey or chicken breast.
Paleo lunches are easy.
At the beginning of the week, make a huge salad with anything you like. A good starting point can be mixed greens, spinach, radishes, bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, avocadoes, walnuts, almonds and sliced apples or pears. Store the salad in a large sealable container. Each morning prepare a single serving from the large batch and then mix in meat (beef slices, chicken, turkey, game, pork chunks, etc.) or seafood of choice (salmon, shrimp, tuna, or any fresh fish or seafood). Toss with olive oil and lemon juice and you are set.
For dinner, try spaghetti squash as a substitute for any pasta recipe. Top with pesto, marinara and meatballs. Roasted beets and their greens make a great side dish for pork. Asparagus, broccoli, and spinach can be steamed quickly. Salmon, halibut, or other fresh fish filets grill well with accompanying foil packs full of cut veggies. Batch roast root veggies!
Berries and other succulent fruits make a great dessert. Pre-cut carrot and celery sticks, sliced fruit, and pre-portioned raw nut/dried fruit mixes are easy snacks.( steady with dried fruit)
Daily Sample :
Breakfast: Omega-3 or free ranging eggs scrambled with chopped herbs & black pepper.
Grapefruit, or any fresh fruit in season, herbal tea
Snack: Sliced lean beef, fresh apricots or seasonal fruit
Lunch: Caesar salad with chicken (olive oil and lemon dressing), herbal tea
Snack: Apple slices, raw walnuts
Dinner: Tomato and avocado slices; grilled skinless turkey breast; steamed broccoli, carrots, and artichoke; bowl of fresh blueberries, raisins, and almonds; one glass white wine or mineral water. (Clearly, wine would never have been available to our ancestors, but the 85:15 rule allows you to consume three non-Paleo meals per week.)
Give this eating plan a go.. It might rock your world and get your transformation moving!
