Some Primal food inspiration…

December 12, 2012

I get this question so much: “What do you EAT then?!”. When I tell friends, coworkers, strangers that I generally try and stay away from grains, sugar, processed food and meat (except for fish), I usually get skeptical face expressions or just wide open eyes in response 🙂 But that’s okay. I try and shed some light on this topic on this blog (sort of why I started it), and this post serves as some general inspiration for your day-to-day life as a Primal eater.

A typical food-day for me looks something like this:

Breakfast: 2 eggs (scrambled, boiled or fried), 1 tomato and half a bell pepper

or

Protein shake of whey protein powder, frozen fruits and berries, a bit of Stevia and some water
or
Paleo bread (no grains or sugar) with almond butter and hemp seeds

Always: vitamins! I take a multiple, a vitamin C, a Magnesium, and an Iron. Help that immune system out!

Lunch: Fish (salmon, cod, herring or shrimp) and a bunch of vegetables, either oven-baked or as a salad (often includes tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumber, olives, carrots, beets, onion, etc.)

Dinner: I cook a wide variation of foods for dinner (you can see a lot of examples on this blog). Typically some kind of oven-baked fish and vegetables. Sometimes I cook soup. Sometimes I cook vegetarian dishes from India or Thailand. Other times I try and make traditional dishes in a Primal style (examples are on this blog: pizza, pasta, Swedish sausage stew, shakshuka, etc.)

Snacks: Fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, protein shakes, dark chocolate

Cooking the tomato sauce. Just added the zucchini pasta at the end to heat it up.

Here we go again with the zucchini pasta and tomato sauce... this time with some oven-baked cod topped with bell peppers, tomato and garlic.
