Paleo Food: What I Eat On The Paleo Diet

Written by: Kristin Jekielek

Ever wonder what (other) people eat on a Paleo Diet? Many of us have wondered from time to time what others eat on a daily basis. I know I have!

Pin It!Well today I’m going to share with you what my typical Supreme meals look like. This is how I really eat about 80% of the time.

My diet may not be what’s best for your body, so take this as an example and not as a template. I happen to feel best on a low carb, high fat Paleo diet, but you might not.

The only way to find out is to experiment for a few weeks, and see how you feel.

You’ll notice that my meals are fairly basic. I don’t cook a lot of complicated dishes. If I can’t eat it raw, sautee it within 10 minutes, or throw it in the oven to bake, it takes a very special occasion indeed to inspire me to make it!

I think I still manage to eat quite deliciously.

 

Breakfast

I typically eat breakfast about an hour after waking up. 90% of the time I eat eggs cooked in butter or homemade lard, plus raw sauerkraut and some non-starchy veg.

  • 3 Eggs with brussel sprouts & raw kraut
  • Duck eggs with reheated spaghetti squash & scallions (This one had a lucky double yolk!)
  • 3 Scrambled eggs, raw kraut, sautéed asparagus and onion

 

Lunch & Snacks

Lunch is usually a salad filled with raw veggies and canned, wild caught seafood. It’s fast, convenient, and portable. I don’t snack often, unless it’s on a superfood like goji berries or raw brazil nuts (an excellent source of selenium). I make it a point to get plenty of selenium to help my hypothyroidism and to balance my iodine intake.

  • Huge raw salad with pumpkin & sunflower seeds
  • Smoked kippers with arugula & radish
  • Goji berries & brazil nut snack

 

Dinner

Dinner is usually something that takes longer to cook, like a crockpot meal or something baked in the oven. It follows the standard meat + veg + healthy fat formula. I like to try adventurous cuts of meat like tongue, pork belly, and liver for dinner occasionally.

  • Spice rubbed pork belly with summer squash
  • Cow tongue stew
  • Ground beef with kale, fried plantains, and salad

 

So that’s a pretty typical line up of my daily diet. Now tell me: what do you eat?
