For the uninitiated, the paleolithic diet, also know as the paleo diet or caveman diet, is a diet based on food human's ancient ancestors might eat, such as meats, nuts and berries. [source wiki]
This is generally to the exclusion of carbohydrates (rice and noodles) and diary products. Pretty hard to be satiated eating fish soup without rice all the time!
With the need to eat healthy and keeping to a budget, i am beginning to explore packing my own lunch occasionally. Viola! My lunch for next week.
1 Whole chicken from the roast counter at Cold Storage - $7.95
1 packet of salad at Cold Storage - $5.95
4 eggs, hard boiled - $2?
Total damage : $16 (rounded up because i will add some yummy spicy sriracha sauce!)
I split the above into 2 meals. Each lunch would then be $8. Within budget.
I'm sure i can come up with more satisfying paleo lunches at cheaper rates. Let's see.
