What the Paleo Plan Is All About
The paleo plan is basically a system for eating the paleo diet, providing shopping lists, recipes, and meal plans in the process. The goal is to make the entire process as simple and easy as possible, with the goal to make eating paleo foods a seamless part of your lifestyle. Momentarily, you may need to have better understanding of the plan.
- Meals – The paleo plan provides for 4 meals a day, every single day. The main focus is in being able to provide meals that are easy to prepare and can be readily available within a few minutes without having to compromise the quality. The weekday meals are usually made up of recurring items to make it easier for participants to prepare their food, and won’t necessarily need to think of new recipes each time they enter the kitchen.
- Preparation Days – Sundays are generally recommended as pre-cooking as well as ingredient-preparation days for items that will have to be used throughout the week. Always look at your schedule before subjecting yourself to any planning. If your off days fall on weekends, then you may stick with the Sunday plan. Otherwise, you will have to tailor it according to what will effectively work for you.
- Flexible Days – These are the “lax” days, so to speak, where you don’t necessarily have to abide with the paleo plan. Busy schedules, meetings, or whatever other reason there is, strict adherence to the plan can just sometimes be impossible. That’s why, each week you will be allowed a flex day with two shopping lists. One list will include the full recommendations of items to buy, and the other list will be leaving out items for the flex days, so it’s up to you which list you’d like to work with.
- Shopping List – Before doing any shopping, you have to make sure to check your pantry first. You don’t need to buy everything that’s on the list, especially if you already have them in your house like those with long shelf life such as honey and frozen berries. Or if you already have half a dozen eggs in your house, you know you only need to get six to complete the 12 required in the plan. Simple things like that should be taken into consideration to ensure practicality.
- Number of people – The plan is generally designed for two individuals involved in the paleo diet. The recipes as well as the shopping list provide guidance with regard to what two average people normally eat. You may, however, make necessary adjustments according to your own specific needs.
- Leftovers – Some dinners in the plan are designed to have leftovers for later in the week, so unless otherwise implied, all recipes will be enough for leftovers without alterations or modifications. In instances when a recipe is just enough for two servings, you will be notified to double the preparation in order to have leftovers. Primarily, all the items in the shopping will be appropriate for the amount of food you will need.
These are the basic concepts when it comes to the plan, so get yourself familiar to prevent misconceptions and confusion as to the food preparations, number of servings, leftovers, etc.
