Simple Gym community, I’m really excited to share a few of my favorite paleo diet recipes! So last week I recapped on how the Paleo diet was going. To my wonderful surprise this week has been even better. It is still hard to say “no thanks” to sweets when offered, but it’s actually because I don’t want to be rude, rather than I miss the taste. Tonight I am going to have a couple of amazing tacos at my favorite taco joint. I no longer worry if people watch me eat the insides and leave the shell. They still taste wonderful!
This week I wanted to pass off a few of the Paleo diet recipes I have come to know and love. When I first started the Paleo diet, I did not think it would be as simple as it is. You don’t have to jump through hoops to eat this way, you just need to be creative and open-minded.
So the first recipe I want to tell you about is one I kind of made up. Well, I got the idea from someone, but tweaked it a bit.
My 4 Favorite Paleo Diet Recipes
Zucchini a la mode – All I did was cut a zucchini in half, long ways. Scraped out the seeds and then threw what ever I had on top. I used a little bit of olive oil, minced garlic, kale, small pieces of chicken, and salsa. I baked in the oven on 350* for 15 minutes or until the zucchini is soft. So good!
My most prized knowledge of any Paleo diet recipe has to be this next one. From Eat-Drink Paleo, its the Show off Paleo Lasagna. I have made this twice and it gets better and better.
Another one of my staple meals is Paleo Pasta. Simply use Spaghetti squash instead of regular noodles. It adds an extra crunchiness that you will love.
Some times you just need something sweet. The brownie cake bites from Health-Bent can satisfy that sweet tooth. I continue to find new ways of cooking and preparing meals. I hope you can try some of these amazing recipes soon.
We all have those days where you just feel like lying down all day. Well, fortunately, you can still get in a good workout lying down! You can do the movements in whatever order you like, there’s no rule for the order I gave them in. Hopefully you can workout lying down while looking at the blue sky! Have a great Monday, we’ll see you tomorrow!
