Eating Paleo Diet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This diet has been great for me. I feel so much better and haven't had the big D for over a week. What a nice change.I also went out of town and didn't have to stop to find bathrooms. I could actually enjoy the trip.

I wanted to know if there is any type of protien drink that I could use for breakfast. I was not sure if that was even possible since I have eliminated almost everything they are made from out of my diet. If this isn't a choice, what do you recommend for breakfast? I usually eat lost of fruit, but wanted more protien without actually having to cook a form of protien early in the morning.

My friend is using the Nature's Plus Spiru-terin chocolate protien drink. He also uses lactose free milk. I called and this is gluten free, but obviously is made with soy. What is non-GMO soy(non-genetically modified)? Is this any worse or better? I am not sure I want to even take a risk of trying this. He loves it though....but obviously his guts are more forgivng than mine.

I would like any suggestions. I also wanted to share one of my favorite chicken salads I have been eating lately. I love it and is very filling yet not too heavy.

Green spinach leafs

cubed grilled chicken (season to liking)

crasins

sliced apples into small pieces

Newman's Own ceasear dressing.

I don't know exactly what you are allowed on the Paleo diet, but I can't have any dairy or soy so I've been making a protein smoothie with powdered egg whites (Bob's Red Mill has some, and I found another brand at Whole Foods), a little nut butter (almond currently), a little stevia, a tiny bit of frozen fruit (usually something like peaches), and ice cubes.

The premise of the paleo diet is whole foods the majority of the time, with the exception of recovery drinks for endurance athletes. It also limits soy and dairy.

I usually crack 3 med eggs on a skillet in the morning while I am fixing my lunch. Flip and then eat. It really only takes about 5 min. My husband cannot get up in enough time to cook in the am, so he usually eats sliced ham or left over chicken (I personally cannot stomach chicken that early)

There are some people who just have trouble stomach food in the am. If a shake is the only option, then egg white protien powder with fruit blended would be the next best thing. There is a brand called Now available at Whole Foods that is good. It doesn't have a taste really, so it will go with whatever you put in it. (I use it post work-out with dextrose and cocoa)

How about buying some good sausages and just microwaving one in the morning? Hardly counts as cooking. I get some from Trader Joe's, chicken/turkey/garlic sausage. Short and sweet ingredient list.

It's hard to stay paleo unless you want to consume uncooked or powdered eggs in a smoothie. To me, cleaning up the blender is more work than microwaving a sausage.

I often eat poached eggs over sauteed greens or asparagus. You could blanch some asparagus and sautee it off with some onion or garlic or something, then refer it; AND boil some eggs. Cooked bacon (gluten-free obviously and uncured) tastes good cold the next day as well. That might work for not having to cook in the a.m.

Thanks for all the good suggestions. I think I might need to get up a little earlier or make my breakfast the night before.

I notice that the fewer grains (of any kind) I eat, the better I feel--I don't do a strick paleo diet, but I kinda follow it. For breakfast, I hard boil about a dozen eggs on the weekend, then during the week, I grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and a handful of cherry tomatoes for a super quick, no fuss breakfast. I also sometimes eat a handful of mixed nuts, and a handful of raisins or dried cherries for breakfast. I am always on the run! In the kosher foods section of your grocery store, you can sometimes find macaroons made with no flour--yum! That's as close to a paleo dessert as I can come. Or, nuts drizzled with honey would be paleo, too, right?

Yes, nuts and honey are Paleo. I am not the biggest honey fan, so I use agave necter alot. YUMMY.

As for the sausages, Super Target carries a brand-I think it is Apple Farms (I will double check when I get home) that is fully cooked, gluten-free and soy free. They make breakfast links that are smaller and larger sausage and I eat a lot of those.

I learned awhile back-it only takes me about 30 min. to get dressed in the morning, but I need an hour so I can prepare my breakfast and food for the day.

I think it takes me 5 minutes to prepare my breakfast & lunch for work. :P I've got it down to a science. I eat my breaky at work too.

It takes me 45 minutes in the winter to make my brekkers -- I have to have potato or something like that to fill me up and keep me warm in the cold months. The trick for me is, then I have to do the doodles...but it's time to leave for school. ARG - I hate morning classes!

This quarter I have a class called "walking" (i go to a hippy college) and once a week we go on three hour walks. Not a good scenario for finding that one needs a facility. Maybe I should've gone with accounting or something. :D

Can you eat beans? Try this yummy dip rolled up in lettuce leaves or eaten right out of the bowl with a spoon:

1 can organic prepared beans (ingredients: beans, salt, water)

1/2 avocado (optional)

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

few shakes dried thyme

few shakes dried sage

about 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

optional: about 5 tablespoons gluten free vinegar (balsamic or regular)

Throw it all into the blender or chopper and chop until the consistency of peanut butter (smoothy or crunchy)

That's it. Enjoy. You can leave out the avocado if you don't like them. You can also add about a tablespoon of chopped onion if you like.

If you are really adventerous....add about 7 roasted almonds to the mix.

Enjoy!

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
