Whether you are trying to lose a large amount of weight or you just want to live a healthier lifestyle, the Paleo way of eating maybe the right answer for you. Characterized by foods that can be grown or killed, the plan focuses on eating in a similar manner to cavemen. Fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, beans, and proteins are essentials to the diet, so you may develop cravings for hearty sandwiches loaded with your favorite condiments and treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoying your meals while following the paleo eating plan is possible using these simple recipes.
The Reuben sandwich is a favorite by many, but the classic dressing that accompanies the corned beef and sauerkraut is not part of your healthy eating plan. To enjoy this sandwich while staying on plan, consider the following recipe for your dressing:
- 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of pickle juice
- ¼ teaspoon of dry mustard
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
Combine together to create a thick dressing. Spread the dressing on two pieces of your favorite rye or whole grain bread. Place a few pieces of corned or roast beef on the bread and add a scoop of sauerkraut. Finish the sandwich off with an extra layer of your homemade dressing.
For breakfast, skip the drive through and make this quick flatbread sandwich. Make the flatbread ahead and then fill with eggs, bacon, and other healthy treats in the morning.
In a large bowl, whisk 12 egg whites. Add ¼ cup sifted coconut flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of sea salt, and a few chopped fresh herbs. Whisk the ingredients together.
Add a few teaspoons of oil to a large pan and heat. Pour ¼ of the mixture into the heated pan and allow to cook for a few minutes. Once you notice bubbles on the edge of your flatbread, flip with a spatula and cook the other side for a few more minutes.
Allow your flatbread to cool before eating. Fold into a wrap and add scrambled eggs and bacon.
For a sweeter take, sprinkle cinnamon onto the hot flatbread and allow it to cool. Cut into pieces and eat with fruit or dip into your favorite yogurt.
Following the paleo lifestyle does not have to be difficult. With these delicious recipes, you can enjoy eating in a clean, healthy, and appetizing manner.
