I am not the best cook, I like simple things. On the one hand that almost forces me to be "paleo" at times, because if I have a pepper and I don't know how to cook it I'll just eat it as is (which of course is delicious). I try to have healthy, small meals throughout the day, but I don't have a lot of variety and I am clueless as to what else I can eat. I'm getting tired of what I eat everyday.

So my question for everyone is, what do you eat? Whether it's your healthy small meals, snacks, or meals you cook to eat with friends and family? I'd love simple ideas and any recipes to learn! =)

I tend to buy basic things that you can make alot of different meals from. Stock up your pantry with herbs and spices it's amazing how you can manipulate so many flavors with them. If you are pressed for time make the crock pot your best friend lol . You can put together a ton of yummy make ahead meals and freeze them for later .

I eat proteins vegs and complex carbs at each meal.

Hi,

It's okay to keep things simple and you don't have to spend hours in the kitchen to eat healthy. Meat wise, if you have a small grill, you can just use a lean piece of meat put on some of your favorite spices, grill and done. On the side, you can either have sautéed vegetables with just a bit if olive or coconut oil and some spices or a salad. I personally think that having a few different condiments helps create variety even if you have the same type of foods several days in a row.
