  • I like to eat raw vegetables at least once a day so I usually make a salad or a vegetable plate for lunch. Here I have raw zucchini and carrot strips tossed with sea salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Fresh spinach and green onions with Omega-3 rich sardines and a little mayo on the side. Also a sprinkle of sesame seeds for extra calcium. Another great paleo meal 👌😃 #paleoforeveryone #rawfoods #paleo #primal #nutrition #fibre #jerf #paleofoodie #eatdrinkpaleo #rejuvenatedforlife
