OK, the video is a little rough but it was more important to get the information out than get it perfect. We are starting a quick Paleo Challenge on Monday, Nov. 1. The purpose of the challenge is to lay down the dietary train tracks through the holidays. I don’t think people get fat over the holidays from a few parties, they get fat because after the parties, when their hormones are jacked from reduced sleep, stress, overeating, sweets and drinking, they don’t have a habit that gets them back on the hormonal train tracks to Happyville. Let’s get proactive, here’s a few helpful hints to get started:
- Confused as to what the Paleo Diet is and how succeed? Read Robb Wolf’s book, The Paleo Solution. Don’t have time? Following the 80/20 rule, actually more like 99.5/.5 in this case, Robb summarized his book in two pages.
- Now that we have the easy stuff out of the way, what’s next… Build yourself a matrix like I showed in the video, 5 columns, 5 rows. You get to choose your favorites, how awesome is that!
- It’s Thursday, plan to shop this weekend for your favorites in the matrix.
- Final suggestion. Think simple. Think precooked rotisserie chicken from the market and a bag of salad. Think Crock Pot. Think leftovers. Be prepared and cook fast.
I know this is cryptic but there will be more later. Until then, here is my favorite, fast dinner or lunch:
1 can of salmon, 1 avocado and salsa. Please add yours to the comments.
Oh yeah, one last thing. If you are new to the Paleo Diet, there are at least 20 people, spread in classes throughout the day, who will be delighted to give you their favorite recipes, just ask and I will bet you will get more good recipes in 5 minutes than you can cook all week.
