The CrossFit box that I train at will be doing a nutrition challenge on Paleo Diet. If you google what is Paleo Diet, this is what it says “a diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans, consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables and fruits and excluding dairy or cereal products and processed food”. As an Asian, giving up rice and noodles are really hard, to make it even harder, I’m not a fan of vegetable and fruits 😫 (guilty! Even though’I know they are very healthy). Most of the recipe online are western food style, which again I’m not so much of a fan, so I try to cook something that can qualify as Paleo in Asian style, so that I can stay on the diet, hopefully after the challenge, I can see some changes on my body😬.
