Some people think that going Paleo means an excessive amount of changes in lifestyle that are too much for the average person to bear. But the difficulty of Paleo eating is just one of the myths stopping you from reaching your health goals. Eating the Paleolithic diet is a simple as making healthy, whole food, substitutions for the same meals you know and love. For breakfast try making a simple Paleo omelet. Start by sautéing onion, peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli together in a pan over medium heat with a little bit of organic olive oil. Then add omega-3 rich eggs and diced turkey to complete your delicious and Paleo friendly omelet.
Nothing is quite as easy as crafting a scrumptious Paleo lunch. Try this on for size – at the beginning of the week, a big fresh greens salad that will last you until Friday. Try using a mix of spring greens, spinach, bell peppers, radishes, cucumbers, carrots, walnuts, almonds and sliced apples to give your salad a tart punch. Store the salad in a large sealable container and get ready to dig in.
As part of your morning routine prepare a single serving from the salad batch and then mix in meat, anything form ground beef to grilled chicken, or seafood of choice, think salmon and shrimp. Simply toss your protein into the salad with lemon and olive and your have a delicious, and hassle free, lunch ready every day of the week. Batch eating like this is a great way to save time and stick to you dietary goals.
When it comes time for dinner, try your hand at making spaghetti squash as a substitute for any of your pasta recipes. Finish the squash off with pesto, marinara, and organic meatballs. The basic formula for a Paleo dinner is adding a wealth of filling and nutritious vegetable sides to your protein base. Beets and cauliflower make excellent pairs with Pork. Asparagus, broccoli, and spinach can all be steamed in less than ten minutes. Fire up the grill and reach for fish filets of salmon, halibut, and your local fresh catch. Don’t forget to throw some foil packs full of fresh cut veggies with olive oil and garlic to finish off your meal.
For dessert try berries and other fresh in-season fruits to make a wholesome desert. Throughout the day try reaching for carrot and celery sticks, sliced fruit, and organic fruit and nut mixes. Once you start analyzing all of the incredible options your have for Paleo eating you will start wondering why you’re not doing it already.
