For those that know me, they know that I’m a bit of a health-nut and that I eat in ways that most people don’t understand. I sometimes don’t even eat the meals that I make because it’s not within my dietary guidelines, but it makes the lady happy when I cook for her. Sometimes I give advice to those who inquire on how to eat healthier and not give up the magical qualities that eating a delicious meal can provide.
I workout at a Crossfit gym in Tacoma and we’re going to start a “clean eating challenge” for the next 30 days and it’s basically a way to get those at the gym to be more conscious about what they eat while trying to better their gym performance or lose weight. To do that, we follow the Paleo Diet. Look it up, it’s interesting and a bit intense if you’ve never dieted before. You pretty much eat like the cavemen and eat meat, veggies, and drink water. It can seem daunting and a bit plain due to the sheer fact that you focus on ALLLLL of the food that you can’t eat and then spiral into a state of hanger (hunger anger). Never fear though! If you read into what you CAN eat and then focus on “prettying” up your plate then it won’t seem as bad! If you slip up every now-and-then who cares, not me, at least you’re trying.
This here dish is a little somethin’ I made to prove my point…and this is a pretty simple dish because it was late and I didn’t feel like bringin’ out all the pots a pans. It’s a simple spinach salad with chicken and guacamole! MMM! It’s also extremely easy to make. Check it:
All you do is cook it. Grill that piece of poultry with a bit of pepper and then cut it up. Easy.
Take spinach out of the container or bag or bunch and then put it on a plate. Easier than the first step.
Take avocado, tomato, onion, garlic, and lime juice. Chop it up and then mix it in a bowl ‘til desired chunkyness. Simple
Plate it pretty so that it doesn’t look Neanderthal-esque and then eat!
'Til the next dish!
