Today’s post is not very witty. It is simple and to the point. This the “what to eat and what not to eat” basics of paleo. It is in list form because that is easiest, so here is the simple version:
Fruits and vegetables
Nuts and seeds
Herbs, spices and seasonings
Here is a more detailed version, it is not all including (seriously I cannot think of every fruit, vegetable, meat… option out there), BUT it is much more detailed:
You can eat as much fruit as you want . However, if you’re trying to lose weight, limit fruit intake to one or two small servings a day and limit dried fruit to a small handful a day .
You can eat all vegetables without limit. Fill up your plate!
Cooked Snow Peas
Some legumes –snowpeas, sugar snap peas, and green beans are acceptable to eat
because they’re young and green, so they contain fewer anti-nutrients .
ENJOY IN MODERATION
NUTS and SEEDS
In general, each meal is focused around 3-5 ounces of meat per serving.
Organic and/or Local Bacon (nitrate free)
Grass fed beef
Jerky (nitrate free)
Watch your intake of all of these if you’re trying to lose weight—they’re very calorie dense. BUT they are crucial so don’t leave them out!
Extra Virgin Olive oil
Unrefined Red Palm oil
Filtered or spring water
Freshly juiced fruits and vegetables
Other types of caffeinated drinks including coffee!
