If you've recently become familiar with the paleo diet then you may be wondering what a typical fellow paleo dieter eats in a day. When you completely change all of your food selections, then you may at first have a hard time coming up with foods to eat.
As you know, the paleo diet does not allow grains, processed vegetable oils, peanuts or processed foods. Grains are such a big part of the standard western diet that it may seem strange at first not to eat them. When you create a paleo diet menu plan, then you need to compose your meals of meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
It is really possible to eat an intense variety of meals on the paleo diet, and some cookbooks have been written on the subject along with enormous amounts of material online. Here I'm gonna describe a typical paleo diet menu, something that is typical for me to eat in a day.
Breakfast (eggs and vegetables):
– 4 Omega-3 enriched eggs
– 150g Frozen broccoli
– 100g Frozen cauliflower
– 50g Frozen carrots
– 15g Coconut Oil
– Two teaspoons organic vegetable spice
Melt a stuffed teaspoon of coconut oil on a frying pan, add frozen vegetables and let them cook for a minute and thaw. Then add the eggs, and last the vegetable spice. Stir fry until ready.
Lunch (leftover chicken from previous night):
– 3 Chicken thighs
– Mashed sweet potatoes
– A salad with lettuce, bell peppers and cucumbers
Chicken thighs were baked in the oven until ready and crisp, sweet potatoes peeled and boiled until soft, then mixed with butter and mashed.
– A handful of organic almonds
– An apple
Dinner (meat pizza, meatza):
– A pound of ground beef
– Two onions
– Three cloves of garlic
– Three carrots
– Organic Pizza Sauce
Onions, carrots and garlic cut. They are mixed with ground beef and pizza sauce, put in a baking dish and salted. Then the dish is covered with the cheese and dried oregano added on top. Bake in an oven until ready and cheese has obtained a brown color.
This was a sample paleo diet menu, but the type of variety that you can find with the paleo diet is incredible. You may be wondering why I listed butter and cheese, since those foods were not available in the paleolithic era. Most paleo dieters are fine with eating high-fat dairy such as butter and cheese since it adds great variety to the diet and has been proven to have health benefits. Eating salt in moderation is fine too.
