Just because you’re Paleo doesn’t mean you have to blow your paycheck on exotic ingredients. This Paleo chicken bacon saute with broccoli and carrots recipe is simple, simple, simple. 

An Unnecessary Burden 

I’ve heard so many people express their frustration at the cost and inconvenience of Paleo. It shouldn’t be that way!

If you’re going broke and losing sleep at the expense of meal prep, you’re doing it wrong! I hate to hear stories of people giving Paleo an honest try and getting discouraged. 

I want to do my part to show just how easy Paleo can be. After all, simple, natural, unprocessed ingredients are at the core of the lifestyle, so you shouldn’t have to work too hard to get to them. 

Recipes like this one are a great example of Paleo done right. You’ve got typical everyday ingredients that create a recipe that’s ready in a reasonable amount of time. 

Mere mortals don’t have four hours to make dinner. This delicious dish is ready to plate in half an hour. 

Keeping It Simple

A large part of the simplicity and ease of this dish are the “normal” ingredients. You shouldn’t have to make a separate trip to a health food store or buy anything online. 

No, you’re working with run-of-the-mill basics that, when artfully prepared, produce a perfectly harmonious meal. 

For the meat, chicken and bacon are used. Since this recipe only requires two strips of bacon, you can cook it all and have a little treat with your breakfast for the week. 

You’ll season the dish with garlic powder, salt, and pepper — all items you should have ready to go. 

Broccoli, carrot, and onion add tons of nutrition and flavor, while balsamic vinegar puts a final flavor stamp on the dish. 

The one ingredient that may be a bit new for you is avocado oil. It’s a great option for sauteing due to its high smoke point. 

That said, if you don’t want to shell out the cash for it, there are alternatives. Think about using extra bacon fat or other animal fat. Just don’t resort to vegetable or seed oils
