Think healthy and hearty paleo cooking takes forever? Got 20 minutes?

 

whole30 compliant recipe markHere’s a unique surf and turf kind of paleo meal that’s quick and easy. And it’s loaded with wholesome, nutritious stuff which makes it even better.

This paleo dish takes more time to chop the fresh veggies than it does to cook. And with its super-easy spices and a pre-cooked sausage of your choice, it’ll be on your plate in a snap!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Old Bay Seasoning, it’s awesome! Your mom and grandma probably had this in their cupboard. Smart ladies! And for good reason. It’s a 70-year-old secret mix of herbs and spices that includes celery salt, red pepper, mustard, black pepper, bay leaves, cloves, paprika and some other ingredients they don’t list. I love it. It adds an awesome zip to seafood and poultry. And it’s really inexpensive compared to most pre-mixed spices. Be sure and add this classic to your spice rack!

20-minute paleo skillet meal

Take this skillet recipe and make it your own…for this one, I subbed out the regular sausage for wild boar sausage – really good!

What’s really great about this paleo shrimp and sausage recipe is its versatility – feel free to change up the veggies any way you want. I kept this mixture to quick-cooking veggies because we were hungry and I didn’t want to wait. And we nailed it.

Spicy, sweet and savory all in one bite.

This one’s a keeper for us. Hope it will be for you too!

Easy Low Carb Almond Flour Biscuits

These delicious gluten-free biscuits, made from almond flour, are high in protein, low in carbohydrates and low in sugars. Almond flour is by far the more superior gluten-free flour. It is moist, delicious, nutritious and easy to use. These biscuits yield a firm enough texture to hold just about any preserve or condiment you choose to serve with them.

For best results the almond flour and egg whites should be chilled too. It is also important not to handle the dough too much and get them into the hot oven immediately. This recipe can successfully be doubled.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup PLUS 2 tablespoons almond flour

  • 1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 tablespoons cold butter

  • Egg whites from 3 large eggs

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 400oF

  • Mix chilled almond flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium size bowl. Add the cold butter work in the butter with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Alternatively this step can be done in your food processor – blitz then for a few seconds only.

  • In a small glass bowl or metal bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork or whisk until they slightly frothy – about 30 seconds.

  • Blend the eggs in the almond flour mixture with a knife just until combined. Do not overwork. If using a food processor, add the egg whites and blitz for a few seconds only until combined.

  • If you decided not to use chilled almond flour and chilled eggs, then place the mixture in the fridge for 20 minutes to allow the bits of butter to harden.

  • Drop 4-6 neat spoonful’s of batter (depending on your required size) on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Alternatively, use a well-greased muffin pan.

  • Bake immediately for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

  • Serve with butter and preserves or top the biscuits with your favorite sausage gravy.

Set at 1,200 calories and under 25 grams of carbs per Weight Loss Meal Plan, this plan is considered very low-calorie and moderately low-carbohydrate. It’s you eat at least 1,200 calories per day in order to support your body’s basic metabolic needs.

Diet Adviser Signs And Symptoms Journeys.

Maximize your weight loss by following a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate meal plan. Set at 1,200 calories and under 25 grams of carbs per meal, this plan is considered very low-calorie and moderately low-carbohydrate. It’s you eat at least 1,200 calories per day in order to support your body’s basic metabolic needs.

Benefits of the Meal Plan

These meal plans combine the advantage of a low-carb approach with a low calorie meal plan. These two strategies together can accelerate weight loss, helping you achieve quick results. A 2011 study showed that eating a low-carb diet can help reduce hunger, which is essential if you are following a very low calorie plan of 1200 calories per day. If you can see results for your efforts while experiencing minimal hunger, you are more likely to stick to the plan and less likely to stray down paths with foods higher in calories. Motivation is a key factor in any weight control plan.

Following the Meal Plan

To follow this plan, divide your allotted 1200 calories into three meals of 300 calories each and three snacks of 100 calories each. The steady flow of food keeps you feeling sated throughout the day. The best way to ensure you are adhering to calorie and carb counts is by weighing your food on a kitchen scale or measuring it carefully. Snacks are. It is imperative to ensure you never get to a point where you feel starved or shaky. You are also less likely to feel deprived if you eat every couple of hours. You may notice this plan does not include alcohol. In order to maximize nutritional intake, the 1200 calorie low carb meal plan leaves no room for empty calories. Every calorie must have value when you reduce caloric intake to this level

 The Meal Plan

Each meal and snack includes a few options to give you some variety. For maximum nutritional benefit, try to vary your meal plan each day. Variety helps ensure you do not become bored with your diet, and eating a variety of foods across the spectrum of color will ensure you get all of the vitamins and minerals you need. The diet plan is low carb rather than no carb. Carbohydrates are essential for metabolism and many other vital body processes. Because vegetables, particularly leafy greens, are low in both carbohydrates and calories, they figure strongly into these meal plans.

Low-carbohydrate meals are those with less than 25 grams of carbs per meal. In many cases, the meals listed below have lower effective carbohydrate counts because fiber is counted as a carbohydrate as far as nutritional information goes, but it does not affect blood sugar the way other carbohydrates do. Carbohydrates listed are total and not effective carb rates. Meals are between 250 and 300 calories with snacks totaling the same. Feel free to mix and match for a meal plan that will maintain you at around 1,200 calories per day with low carbohydrate counts. To use the meals below, select one breakfast, lunch, dinner, and three snacks.

 Weight Control

Limiting your calorie intake is one effective way to lose weight. Combining low calorie options with foods low in carbs can help you achieve your weight goals that much quicker.
