When it comes to eating paleo, trainer, nutritional consultant and author of Paleoista Nell Stephenson knows that breakfast, snacks and before-and-after workout foods are the most challenging meals.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but why do so many of us have it all wrong? Skipping breakfast to save calories or because we don’t have enough time does nothing other than increase our chances of making poor meal choices. And when trying to eat paleo, it can be struggle to move away from old standards like cereal or oatmeal and still eat something easy to prepare but filling and healthy. By starting the morning off the right way, you’ll set yourself up for sustained energy and focus day after day.
Snacks can be especially challenging, but whether you’re having a snack at home or at work or school, following this schematic will ensure all of your meals have the ideal Paleo balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat. Keeping on top of what you’re eating as a snack between the other meals in a day can truly be the dealmaker in staying on track with your Paleo regime, and maintaining an even keel in your blood sugar is key to keeping your fat-blasting metabolism on high.
Workout foods when you’re training for a triathlon vs doing a CrossFit workout can be very different. Add to that your exercise goals, body weight and what time of day you’re working out, and you’ve got a lot to take into account!
