While I'm not ready to call myself 'PALEO', I have been talking recently about dipping my toes in the water. For some expert advice, my friends Justin and Erica stopped by to give us the beginner's guide to the lifestyle!
We are Justin and Erica from realsimplegood.com, a paleo cooking and living blog, and we were excited and intrigued by Kim’s post about wanting to give paleo a try.
So, we thought maybe you’ve been wondering what this whole paleo thing is about too, haven’t you? Maybe you think it’s too complicated or requires too much effort. Well, we are happy to say that it’s really quite the opposite. A paleo lifestyle is truly all about simplifying. Here’s a little graphic to illustrate the core principles of a paleo lifestyle.
Following these easy principles has allowed us to cut out all of the unnatural, processed food we used to eat and focus our diet on fresh, local, organic and high-quality ingredients. We have really noticed a difference in the way we feel eating this way.
Since following the paleo diet can be a little daunting at first, we thought we’d share one of our secrets to make life a little easier – one-pan meals. This is our favorite way to cook during a busy week because it allows us to have a simple but also delicious dinner ready to eat in about 30 minutes. Here are a few ways to create flavorful dinners with minimal effort.
First, a one-pan dish with bacon (because bacon makes everything better).
Next, a one-pan mediterranean skillet.
One last idea for you, a one-pan steak dinner.
We hope this gives you some ideas to try for quick and easy paleo meals. Give the paleo diet and lifestyle a try and check out our blog at realsimplegood.com for more easy paleo recipes.
