Sugar snap peas and carrots. Easy grabbing veggies for a snack or to round out your lunch. A bag of fresh peaches...they are so tasty this time of year. Lemons and limes to flavor iced tea, for squeezing over fresh avocado, or to make paleo mayo with. Two bottles of POM juice. I only use a little at a time to flavor sparkling water. It's delicious and definitely better than soda. Iceberg lettuce to use as "bread" for my sandwich wraps. Watermelon and cantaloupe to eat with fresh lime squeezed over it along with a sprinkle of tajin, an amazing seasoning I get when I'm in Texas or on Amazon when I'm not. Cucumbers, onion, and tomato to make a delicious cucumber salad...(recipe soon), and more tomatoes, cilantro, onion and jalapenos to make fresh salsa for eggs, meat, or any other reason I might be in the mood for a fresh Mex taste. There are two bags of Boar's Head lunchmeat...mesquite turkey and tavern ham. I love to put paleo mayo on a piece, place that on a piece of lettuce and roll up.
Yes, it's true...sometimes I hit two stores in one day. If you're lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's around, they have great, easy things to add to your paleo menu. Eggs are key and while I usually hit up Local Harvest grocery for good quality pastured eggs, I didn't have the time so I opted for the best ones I could find here. I'll boil a dozen and save the rest for breakfast. Smoked salmon is a quick easy lunch along with some avocado and a piece of melon. I always buy a bag of spinach and a bag of power greens to sautee with my eggs in the morning. Call me Popeye. Broccoli slaw and broccoli florets make a wonderful broccoli salad. The cauliflower is so versatile...steam it, broil it, or make cauliflower "rice". I'll add good proteins to these veggie options and voila, a paleo meal. I try to cut and prep as much as I can today so most of the work is already done when it's time to put a meal together.
