Whenever I tell anyone about my following the Paleo Diet, I can almost guarantee the question "Well if you eliminate grains, dairy, legumes; what do you eat?". Followed by"That can't be healthy!" and/or "I could never eat like that!" Actually I eat very well, thank you. When I concentrated on eating meat, veggies, fruits and roots I actually increased the nutrient content of my food. I now prefer to refer to the way I eat as a nutrient dense diet. This shows the general composition of my meals- 1/2 of my plate is veggies, either raw or cooked or a combination of the two- 1/4 of my plate is meat- and 1/4 of my plate is fruits or roots. Although this is a rather simplified example and does not explain the principles of the Paleo Diet or nutrient dense diet; it does give you a good idea of how to start.
This meal consisted of
1 small chicken breast coated with almond flour,salt, pepper, mexican oregano, garlic powder and parsley
1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli, cauliflower mix sauted with butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder
1/2 nectarine sliced
Easy, peasy- simple but nutrient dense. It didn't take long and the plate looked great.
