Preparing Your Pantry
One of the first things you need to do is prepare your pantry and kitchen for the Paleo diet. That means getting rid of anything that’s processed or includes grains.
If you’re not ready to throw out food and waste it, consider donating it to a food bank. At the very least, if you don’t want to make a total commitment to this program, you should pack up the foods that aren’t part of the Paleo diet and ask a friend to store them for you.
Having those foods out of the house will make it easier to stick to the plan. You should also stock up on healthy foods to get ready. In addition to having items for the meals you plan to eat, you need to make sure you have plenty of snacks to prevent you from getting too hungry in between meals and going off of the plan.
Some good examples include: carrot sticks, beef jerky, herbal teas, a variety of nuts, applesauce, dried fruit, nut butters, and banana chips. You’ll also want to stock up on common ingredients in Paleo recipes such as olive oil, coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup, almond flour, and coconut flour.
Having these staples on hand will make it easier for you to grab a snack and prepare the foods you need for success.
