As a lot of you know I am working on getting back in shape. I’ve been Paleo for a few months now and I have to say, it’s getting easier. I am feeling better, lost 10lbs in the first month, and am starting to really love eating healthier. I’m focusing on loading up on vegetables, using protein and fiber to stay full longer, and using fruit as my “sweet reward”. I’ve found that if I get into a routine it tends to be a lot easier to make the right choices. I wanted to share with you what my routine is.
Morning: Vegetable egg scramble
1-2 cups veggies (depending on if they cook down or not) sauteed in 1 tbsp butter with 3 eggs (optional: sausage and/or potatoes)
Pumpkin Pancakes with 1 tbsp butter, 1 drizzle of real maple syrup or honey, and fresh fruit
2 cups mixed frozen fruit, 1 cup coconut or almond milk, 2 tbsp flax seed (optional: 2 tbsp nut butter); blend till smooth
Lunch: Salad with Protein
2 heaping cups of raw vegetables, 1 cup grilled chicken, steak, fish, shrimp, hard boiled eggs, etc. Top with homemade salad dressing (optional: 2 tbsp nuts or seeds)
2 cups steamed vegetables with 1 cup protein
Apple, Banana, or celery with nut butter on top
2 hard boiled eggs and a piece of fruit
Dinner: Whatever is on my plan (check out PaleoPlan.com or Emeals.com for options)
Evening: Hot Tea (my newest obsession is chai vanilla tea with coconut milk- yum!)
That’s it! Not that hard, no weird ingredients, and full of amazing paleo goodness. Plus, it’s so much nicer not having to think about what I’m going to eat.
Do you have any amazing quick and easy whole food recipes? I’d love to hear about them. 🙂
