Unfortunately a law student’s healthy lifestyle is often the first thing thrown out the window! While grades are important, its also equally important to keep a decent diet!
One of my classmates has definitely taken this tip to heart. He works out with Cross Fit who recently set up a 30 day Paleo challenge.
What is the Paleo Diet?
The Caveman/Cavewoman Diet. Transport yourself back to a time where men and women survived on basic hunting and gathering skills. There were no processed foods right? Exactly. Basically this diet allows you to eat meats, veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds. What doesn’t it allow? Dairy, Legumes, Grains, Processed sugars and pretty much anything else processed. Now that’s my kind of diet.
How does a busy law student do it, you ask? Simple really. Cook on the weekends and picture yourself as a raw vegan. You can’t go wrong.
Today for example, I ate a watermelon & banana fruit salad with green tea for breakfast. For lunch, poached eggs with avocado. For dinner, I even went out to Fiore and ordered the clams cooked with olive oil, tomato and garlic. As a late night snack on a Saturday night, I had two glasses of red wine and pistachios. (hey, I never said I didn’t indulge).
See, that wasn’t too bad, was it?
