What do You Eat for Breakfast on a Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet is a version of clean eating that emphasizes whole foods and unprocessed ingredients. For me, it is an easy way to make sure my family is getting the nutrients they need to stay full and satisfied.
Plus, it helps me maintain my weight and keeps me energized enough to keep up with my busy lifestyle. For details on my full 30-day clean eating program, click here.
When following the Paleo diet, making lunch and dinner is a breeze. All you need to do is gather lean meat, veggies, and healthy fats. Then, add them to a salad, bake them in the oven, or toss them in the skillet, and you’ve got yourself a healthy meal in minutes.
