Anyone who’s been following me for a while now on Instagram knows that I am one lazy chick. I mean, I do put in work to meal prep, plan ahead, cook my meals, etc. but I do it in the simplest most non-complicated way, evar.
I cook/prepare 3 meals a day along with 1 snack usually. I keep it simple. REALLY simple. Most of my meals are not pretty. (So I don’t Instagram them all, especially the boring repeats) Almost all of my meals are a slab of protein, side of veggie and side of healthy fats. I don’t use a ton of ingredients and I use/eat a lot of the same food over and over again. You can call it boring if you’d like, but I’d like to think it helps me stay on my clean eating regimen. If I had to make a fancy new paleofied version of a dish every night, I’d go crazy and I couldn’t keep up with it.
Now I know there are a million ways to paleofy your food and (AHmazing) recipes for really awesome paleo dishes. We have all seen the paleo pancakes, muffins, cookies, bread, lasagna, casseroles, wraps, pizzas, etc… I’ll be the first to say they look f’in bombdotcom. I pin every single one of these recipes to my Pinterst Paleo boards when I see ’em but I hardly ever make any of them. I find that it’s just easier to stick with eating real food in its realest most natural forms.
The most “complicated” paleo dishes I’ve ever made were probably bone marrow broth or cauliflower rice. Those aren’t even hard to make either, just a little more time consuming. I do it once in a while but not too often. I’m really lazy… and #aintnobodygottimefodat, siri. A lot of people ask me how I have time to make all this food everyday but the truth is I probably spend less time than YOU cooking. I really honestly try to use as little ingredients and spices as possible. That’s what makes what I do maintainable.
The main food ingredients I ALWAYS have in stock are:
- canned tuna/salmon
- frozen salmon fillets
- frozen chicken breasts or thighs
Spices or Sauces
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- dijon mustard
- olive oil
- coconut oil
Don’t overthink your meals! A meal also doesn’t have to look like a typical meal. I can’t tell you how many times I eat out of a tuna can, take hard boiled eggs out of my pocket, fork a salad out of a ziplock bag or eat pickles right from the jar.
Here’s what my most commonly eaten meals look like:
