News Flash! YOU MUST PLAN!!!
I follow a Paleo Diet/Whole Food Diet. You Will Not Find Dairy,Grains/Complex Carbs, Legumes, Added Sugars OR Processed Food. I'm Not going to pick away at Paleo, today, I want it to happen Organically;)
For any diet to succeed, you must be 2-3 days ahead of the game with your food choices. When your cupboards are bare, bad food choices happen.
Sundays are always a great day to grocery shop and cook and plan your menu.
Now, I am a very 1,2,3 kind of girl:
You Gotcha Good Fat.
You Gotcha Meat.
You Gotcha Veggie/Fruit.
I'm not a recipe follower because lawd knows, I don't have that kind of time. Another reason is, I personally, am fine with compartmentalizing food(the Gotchas).
I also believe, you start following recipes, you start kidding yourself on the end product... and its time consuming! Keep it WAY simple...for now.
I always have 3 different proteins in the fridge, a lunch, a snack, and a dinner.
Lunch may be ground beast of some sort(Turkey, Bison, Chicken, etc.).
Snack maybe sliced beast of some sort( Turkey, Bison, Chicken,etc.).
Dinner is some beast I may have bought in bulk(Baked Chicken), Tilapia Fillets, Salmon...
Chopped Veggies ready to go, in the fridge!
One container for cooking.
Asparagus ,Squash, Bell Peppers, Broccoli.....
One container for salad toppers.
Cucumber, Bell Peppers, Carrot...
Make Your Own Dressing Always!
Fruit Always, chopped or not!
I chop fruit up the night before each day, it doesn't look brown and crazy that way.
Nuts! Especially Walnuts and Cashews! NO PEANUTS!!!
Now, Breakfast....Will break that down next time!
Out the door looks like this.
This Is Breakfast, Lunch, Snack(the energy to hit the gym) and Dinner will be a repeat. Different Meat or not, cook some Veggies and add some Fat..Bon Appetite!!
OH..My Sous Chef? San Pasquel! My Best Friend Natalie and I both picked up this sweet Lil Nugget at the Santa Fe Cooking School...I sound more credible now, don't I!
