Big Ass Salad. This is the easiest and healthiest thing to whip together on Paleo. If you think living primal is hard, or time consuming, think again. It’s easier to shop (check out my grocery list) and it’s easier to prepare. You don’t have to worry about making super complicated recipes, although you can, it’s as simple as throwing together some veggies and grilling some protein. My B.A.S. usually includes lots of cucumber, red or orange pepper, cherry tomatoes, onion, hard boiled eggs, bacon, and Creta Farms deli meat. Sometimes I don’t need dressing, but if I do I use Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette (I know it’s not 100% Paleo…I need to make my own dressings). Another great ingredient for B.A.S is broccoli slaw and carrot strips. The combinations are really endless.
Check out this video about Big Ass Salads from Mark Sisson where he explains how easy it is to throw together a great primal lunch.
