Paleo meals are very easy to make which is because shifting to this diet is not an extraordinary transformation. Preparing a Paleo meal is not far from preparing a regular meal, the only difference is in the ingredients that you use but once you already have Paleo foods and have gotten rid of what is not allowed in the diet, you will have a much easier time .
One of the things making the Paleo diet so easy is that there is no need to count or measure anything. Just as long as your pantry is stocked with Paleo foods and ingredients, it will be just like preparing a usual, traditional meal. Stocking your pantry with Paleo approved foods and getting rid of those that are not allowed is one way way to keep yourself on the track of a Paleo diet. This means that you will not have to resist temptations nor commit the mistake of eating what is not allowed in the diet.
Here are some tips when preparing Paleo meals:
Salads – salads are very easy to make, they do not require much skill and they are really fast to prepare, too. If you want a fresh garden salad, you do not need to cook anything. All you have to do is chop up vegetables, whip up a dressing, toss them together and you've already got yourself a healthy meal.
If you want a meal but you do not feel like a salad is enough; you can grill, bake or sauté some white chicken meat to make your meal heavier. If you want some extra crunch, you can even add some nuts to your salad to add some texture.
Entrees – The possibilities of a Paleo entrée are just as diverse as your usual non-diet entrée. As we have discussed, just as long as you have a Paleo-proof pantry, your culinary imagination can take you everywhere. One of the easiest enteres to prepare that does not need chef skills is vegetables with meat, chicken or fish. You can bake, pan-fry, grill; or in the case of fish, steam these sources of protein with some herbs and spices to taste. Then all you need to add are steamed or sautéed vegetables and you've got yourself a meal good enough to be served in restaurants.
Paleo entrees are not limited to only these. You can do as much in the Paleo diet as you can in the traditional culinary world.
Desserts – A Paleo dessert certainly consists of some or a kind of fruit. It can even be as simple as serving mixed fruits with some sauce like berries with wine reduction. Fruits alone are already desserts because they are sweet and can cleanse the palette after every meal. If you find this boring, you do not have to worry because Paleo desserts are just as interesting as the desserts that you find in pastry shops. There are more interesting and complex desserts that you can find in Paleo cookbooks or on the internet.
Paleo recipes are not limited to the ones discussed above. There are recipes all over the internet and in Paleo books as well. As I have said, the possibilities are endless so enjoy exploring the culinary world of the Paleo diet.
