It's been almost a month into the Paleo Challenge and feeling great. I have lost one dress size and dropped 8-10 lbs of fat. I incorporated more avocado and sweet potato to my breakfast to help with the low energy I have been experiencing.
The biggest challenge would be preparing enough food in advance to make it convenient to stay on track. It is easy to get burned out on this diet, which is why I would like to share a couple meal ideas.
Golden White Sweet Potato with Over Medium Eggs and Avocado
Paleo Eggs Benedict: Poached Eggs on top of some sautéed bacon our ham, sliced tomato and avocado with a splash of pesto or basalmic vinegar and olive oil.
Popeyes Pesto Eggs: sautéed spinach with bacon topped with melted eggs and pesto. A splash of basalmic vinegar is optional. (I love pesto!)
Artichoke and Olive Salmon on Cauliflower Purée with Golden Carrots: Our favorite fish recipe! Baked salmon in a foil pouch topped with Mediterranean flavors.
Salmon with Roasted Golden Beets, Mushrooms, and Carrots: yummy salmon with root veggies. I brown the veggies in real butter and coconut oil.
Seared Tuna with Creamy Alfredo (Cashew Sauce) Spagetti Squash with Spring Veggies: this recipe is from the Against All Grains cookbook. It's incredible how delicious this sauce is. It has cashews, olive oil, basil, garlic and lemon juice. Purée the ingredients and you have a sauce that tastes so much like a Alfredo sauce. It's our favorite recipe so far. All you do is steam the spaghetti squash and add your favorite veggies. We did peas, mushrooms, and tomatoes.
Paleo Olive Turkey Meatballs: ground turkey, mushrooms, black and green olives, ham or bacon, and one egg. Bake and serve with steam veggie of your choice!
Gazpacho, Chicken Breast and Avocado and Cucumber Salad
Lettuce Wraps Chicken or Fish: sautee meat then add avocado, tomato and bacon. Drizzle some basalmic vinegar and olive oil.
Buffalo Chicken Nuggets: cube chicken breasts and sautee in coconut oil. Then toss in your favorite sauce and serve with carrots.
Happy and Healthy Eating!
