The paleo diet is a hot trend, but it's not a new eating plan. This diet emphasizes foods and beverages that would have been the only means of sustenance for humans in prehistoric and pre-agrarian times -- fruit, vegetables, nuts, and meat. It eliminates processed foods, along with sugar, table salt, caffeine, legumes, and dairy. This doesn't mean there is any shortage of delicious paleo meals, however.

1. Steak Salad

One of the simplest meals that paleo requirements is steak salad. The meat provides plenty of protein and iron for energy, while fiber-rich leafy greens keep the body sated. Shred kale or spinach and top it with other fresh vegetables such as broccoli, onions, and carrots. Then, grill steak, cut the meat into bite-sized pieces, and scatter it on top of the greens. Whenever possible, paleo food should be organic and non-GMO. The steak should also be from grass-fed and pasture-raised sources to more closely resemble the meat that paleolithic humans would have eaten.
