One huge part of my Quirky, Fit + Fabulous Challenge is to get healthy and in shape. With all of the diet crazes out there, most of you have already figured out that just going to the gym alone is not going to get you the body that you want. Before you step foot in the gym, you need to make sure that your diet is right. Imagine putting in hours at the gym and then coming home and eating greasy and sugary foods. Everything is pretty much cancelled out if you are looking for weight loss. Therefore, I personally have decided that I am going to commit to eating paleo on weekdays and I think that you should too.
What is The Paleo Diet?
The Paleo Diet is a diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans, consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit, and excluding dairy or grain products and processed food.
This diet can seem intimidating at first, but in reality, you can boil The Paleo Diet down to meat, vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts and seeds. Pretty much whatever you would find if you were hunting and gathering back in the day.
So if you are reading this post, I assume that you have considered going paleo, but are not sure where to start or if the diet is even feasible. That is why I have created a super easy and doable paleo meal list that I call, The Ultimate Paleo Meal List For Beginners (feel free to pin it below!). This is just a basic list to help you get started, even though I plan to live off of this list. There are lots of substitutes out there that you can make (like grain-free bread or paleo approved mayonaise), but I am honestly just too lazy and cheap to attempt anything like that. So in other words, this could also be called The Lazy Girl's Cheat Sheet to Paleo!
