What Meats Can You Eat to Keep Your Caveman Healthy?

 


Visitors: 356

Your inner caveman loves meat. And think about it: he hunted. If he didn't bag a woolly mammoth or other animal, his clan went without protein. So those times when he did bring home the meat were not only times of celebration, but a renewal of healthy eating for them.

So it should come as no surprise that not many meats are off limits, as long as you choose the leanest variety you can find. In fact, lean meat is a vital part of this amazing lifestyle plan. Here's a comprehensive list so you can get a feel for how easy it is to choose your meat and still be confident your nourishing your inner caveman:

• Chuck steak
• Extra-lean hamburger (no more than 7 percent fat)
• Lean beef (trim it of all visible fat)
• London broil
• Lean pork
• Pork chops
• Pork loin
• Flank steak
• Top sirloin steak

The same guidelines apply to your eating habits for poultry. As long as you eat poultry lean, you're nourishing your body. Here are just a few examples:

• Chicken breast
• Game hen breasts
• Turkey breast

You may also be surprised to learn that you're encouraged to eat some types of organ meats in order to keep that caveman inside you healthy. Enjoy beef, lamb, pork, and chicken livers. You can also eat beef, lamb, and pork tongues.

Surprisingly, egg consumption is encouraged, as long as you keep it to a maximum of six eggs a week. If you love to eat eggs, consider making a two-egg omelet instead of three.

Don't think it'll satisfy you? Stuff it with plenty of fresh vegetables. It will not only fill you up, but you just may discover it's one of the most delicious ways to eat omelets. And it'll help ensure you'll get all the vegetables you need for the day! My favorite omelet vegetable is broccoli. The taste of it permeates the entire omelet!

Here is another recipe for you to try!

Pineapple Salsa Steak

I recommend you find a steak from a steer that has been grass fed if at all possible. This type of meat is becoming easier to find.

1 lb flank steak, grass fed if at all possible
1 tsp chipotle powder
4 slices pineapple
1¼ cup red bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 tsp olive oil

Instructions

Mix olive oil and chipotle powder in a small dish. Brush onto both sides of steak, and either grill for five minutes or broil 3 minutes on one side.
Turn the steak over. If grilling, grill for another 3 minutes. If broiling, broil for another 2 minutes.

Place on plate. Cover. Allow it to rest for several minutes.

In the meantime, grill the pineapple slices for two to three minutes on each side. Cut the pineapple into small bite-size chunks. Place these in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to this

Cut the steak into thin slices, serve with the salsa. Enjoy!
