                Typical week for us:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paleo Meat staples:

  • Venison, Beef, Bison
  • Free- Range chicken or game birds
  • Nitrate free bacon or ham
  • Roasted Turkey
  • Pork
    *Try to go with Grass fed, lean meats for the bulk of your meat eating. Breakfast meats are tricky- we do ham, bacon or even left over pulled pork or steaks with eggs or in an omelet.

My Paleo Snack or side dish staples:

Cauliflower
Salad
Asparagus
Fresh Salsa
Guacamole
Carrots
Celery
Squash
Cucumbers
Onion
Peppers
Grape tomatoes
sesame seeds
almonds
Macadamia nuts
Cashews
Berries or in season fruits
Almond flour (buy in bulk)
Coconut flour
Any fruit in moderation
a little dried fruit in moderation
Dark chocolate 72% or higher in moderation
*Eat all the veggies you want- some days I eat an entire container of cherry tomatoes for a snack.
Dijon mustard’s
oil and vinegar
Herbs and spices

Try to avoid:

  • Dairy products (If full Paleo, if just primal- you may have full fat, raw organic milk products- Brandon is more Primal because he still does grass- fed cheese)
  • Sugar (yes sugar is not paleo) -replace with honey, palm sugar or maple syrup- all natural
  • Juices- make your own
  • White/ wheat flour
  • Grains- your body cannot naturally digest them
  • no white potatoes
  • corn
  • Legumes- What the heck is a legume?
  • Soy
  • *When buying dark chocolate- try to get soy, dairy free – or make sure soy lechtin is last on the list*
  • Trans-fats
  • Processed- pre made foods.
  • Vegetable oil
    Best tip– Read the labels and make sure you know what all of the ingredients are before you buy them. Buy foods with the least amount of ingredients.

*I’ve noticed that if I pre-slice some of the veggies and keep them in an easily accessible container- I am more likely to snack on them rather than opening up a chocolate bar or a bag of nuts and dried fruits.
