It’s pretty common when first explaining Paleo style eating to someone, for them to feel like it’s very restrictive, with few choices. But after a while, they realise that meat, fish, eggs, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds can actually go together in a million and one different ways. Add in herbs and spices and you never have to eat the same way again.
However, it’s good to have some tried and tested, quick to prepare, favourite meals that tick all the boxes for good nutrition. So whenever you are in a pinch timewise, or just find yourself really hangry, you know you can whip something up to eat quicksmart.
Ensure you always have the ingredients on hand to whip up your go to staple dishes, so that you never get caught out, and have to get dinner from Burger Fuel…… [guilty]
Some of my faves are:
Eggs and any old veggies from the fridge for a hash or omelet.
Steak and carrots – I toss the carrots in duck fat, and roast them slowly, then the steak only takes 3mins to cook if you eat it rare like a real man….. You can nuke the carrots and finish them off in the steak fat, if in more of a hurry.
Smoothie – berries, nuts, avocado, coconut cream, protein powder, frozen brocolli, green stuff, etc, chuck it all in till you can stand a spoon up in it…. This is often my Saturday morning breakfast, as I don't have time for a sit down breakfast.
In the cupboard, I'll always have almond butter, raw nuts, and in the fridge, biltong, hard boiled eggs, fruit – all good snacky type stuff.
