Paleo Perfection: Eat Like a Cavewoman For 1 Day
The Paleo diet is all the rage, but committing to it translates to major lifestyle changes. If you’re considering going Paleo, start with a one-day meal plan to help you decide if it’s something you’re ready to try long-term.
| Breakfast: Avocado and Egg Breakfast
Lots of Paleo breakfasts require ample prep time, but if turning on the oven before work sounds like a pain, try this even easier recipe that brings together this match made in omega-3 heaven. Hard-boil your eggs in advance for a throw-together breakfast that will fill you up with protein and fiber, keeping you surprisingly full and satisfied until lunchtime rolls around.
| Lunch and Dinner: Carrot and Cabbage Detox Salad
A colorful detox rainbow salad will add some brightness and flavor to your day of clean eating. The water content in romaine works to hydrate your body, while the high fiber content in the red cabbage and carrots aids in healthy digestion. Feel free to top yours off with four ounces of grilled free-range chicken for more protein.
| Snack: Honeydew Slice Wrapped in Prosciutto
Two slices of honeydew melon wrapped in prosciutto is an Italian classic that will serve as an easy sweet and savory afternoon snack.
| Dinner: Paleo Shrimp and Grits
Give the Southern classic of shrimp and grits a Paleo twist with this delicious recipe. Riced cauliflower simmers on the stove in a coconut milk bath to stand in for traditional corn grits, while fresh lemon, a little spice, and a touch of ghee make the shrimp portion of the dish much lighter and even more delicious.
| Dessert: Cocoa Cherry Cake
