Breakfast Sweet Potato Hash
– Cut out the regular white potatoes and go with this sweet potato hash served up with eggs for a nicely balanced Paleo meal. Sweet potatoes provide beta-Carotene, which converts to Vitamin A in the body, fueling you through your morning. They’re also lower on the glycemic index so you can stay focused and alert and get stuff done.
Tuna Avocado Lettuce Wraps
– The combination of protein from the tuna, and healthy fats from the avocado make this a fully satisfying lunch. The avocado also provides you with potassium and fiber, and it’s important to get your daily fiber while on the Paleo diet. The wraps cut out the grains and carbs so you get a satisfying lunch, and feel great all afternoon. No food comas with Paleo, just pure energy from whole foods so you can be at your best.
Strawberry Fruit Leather
– Bring a strip of fruit leather with you on the go and you’ll feel like a little kid again! And when you make it yourself you don’t have to worry about what’s in it. There’s nothing artificial about this fruit leather, and of course no High Fructose Corn Syrup. Snacking really is fun when you make snacks that don’t send you off course or leave you feeling lousy.
Curried Paleo Cauliflower Soup
– Have a bowl of this soup as a precursor to dinner, or serve it alongside the salmon and green beans. It’s the sort of soup that will get you salivating as it simmers, and will signal your digestive juices that it’s time to eat. It also provides you with a serving of cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable with several health benefits.
Dill & Lemon Baked Salmon in Parchment
– This dish will be the centerpiece of the meal, and is the sort of satisfying fare you get to eat on the Paleo diet. Salmon is a highly recommended fish to eat on Paleo, and provides you with important omega-3s. It is one food that health experts agree you should have multiple times a week. Go with wild caught salmon for the best results and to avoid the contaminants found in farm-raised fish.
Balsamic Green Bean Salad
– The tartness of the balsamic green beans goes well with the dill and lemon from the salmon. Always remember to get your vegetables on Paleo, and to lean towards getting more vegetables than meat with each meal. Our ancestors would have viewed meat as a treat and relied on vegetation to see them through, so always fuel up with veggies.
Coconut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting
– Finish off dinner with these light and fluffy cupcakes with frosting made from real chocolate. What makes the Paleo diet so unique is that it doesn’t chastise you for having dessert when you feel like it. When you make dessert with Paleo ingredients it will propel you rather than leave you lethargic or guilty. So drop any notion that desserts are bad and should be avoided and get on board with healthy dessert eating.
Broccoli Egg Bake
– This is like a quiche redefined, without any unnecessary ingredients, but plenty of flavor and nutrition. Broccoli is the poster child for healthy food, and supplies fiber to get your day off on the right foot and meet part of your daily fiber requirement. Eggs supply protein which powers you through till lunch.
– You may get a bit messy with this meatball sandwich which gets rid of the bread and uses zucchini instead. Be sure to have a supply of napkins on hand. This meaty midday reprieve will make you feel like you’re not on a diet at all, and without the grain and gluten from a regular sandwich, you’ll be able to get stuff done after lunch.
– Say goodbye to the post-lunch blahs with this energy bar that will help get you through the rest of your day with ease. It’s great for those days when you just don’t know where you’ll be when hunger hits. It’s super portable so you can have it while driving, even use it to power up before an after-work workout.
Thai Red Curry with Squash
– Get all of the taste you’d expect from a traditional bowl of curry with the right adjustments to make it totally Paleo friendly. You’ll be amazed at some of the meals you can have on the Paleo diet. You don’t have to go without, or eat food that looks or tastes weird. You get to have full-flavored dishes like this one inspired by some of the tastiest cuisines on the planet.
– The only way to serve up a bowl of Thai curry is with rice, but on Paleo we make it special using cauliflower. That means fewer carbs and a serving of vegetables to go along with your squash. Another example of how Paleo has been mislabeled as a meat-centric diet. Vegetables serve an important function, providing fiber, vitamins and minerals to supplement meat.
– Good luck trying to find another diet program out there that lets you enjoy macaroons with zero guilt when you’re done. This recipe creates amazing tasting macaroons that you can even serve to non-Paleo dieters and they won’t know that they’re “diet food”. Wholesome ingredients is the key to great-tasting desserts.
– Don’t pull into the golden arches of doom, make up this delicious breakfast burrito instead and your waistline and heart will thank you. Avocado, spinach, and a lean protein are just some of the examples of why this is your new healthy breakfast go-to item. The tortillas are made grain-free out of eggs so your egg is built right in.
Healthy Paleo Nachos
– Nachos are on the menu when you’re on Paleo, as long as you make them according to our no-longer-top-secret in-house recipe. Your coworkers will wonder how you eat all of this amazing looking food but appear to be losing weight. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a big plate of nachos, and on the Paleo diet you’ll actually be helping to shed the pounds, not add them.
Antioxidant Berry Shake
– This shake will load you up with antioxidants which will make you feel good by helping to protect you from free radicals. Health experts agree that antioxidants play an important role in helping to support the immune system and fight off major diseases like cancer and heart disease. No diet would be complete without a focus on these important nutrients.
Spaghetti Squash Shrimp Scampi
– Enjoy the full flavor of shrimp scampi without worrying that you’re ruining your diet plan. This is a way to have a restaurant quality dinner in the comfort of your home and not wonder what’s in your food or how it was made. Quality control is an important part of the Paleo diet concept, and learning to make delicious food is key to your success.
Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
– A side of Brussels sprouts goes well with the scampi and provides plenty of fiber. Brussels sprouts are a cruciferous vegetable that is routinely linked to anti-cancer benefits. It’s nice to know you’re on a diet that promotes eating foods that are life-saving, as well as body-enhancing. Instead of feeling down about eating diet food, Paleo helps you look forward to eating.
– Top off the going out to eat feeling by having a serving of garlic breadsticks with your savory scampi. Breadsticks are just one sign that you won’t have to sacrifice a traditional style meal on Paleo, you simply make adjustments to how the breadsticks are made and exclude the ingredients that harm you.
The Best Paleo Brownies
– Why settle for the rest when you can have the best? That’s right, brownies get the green light on Paleo! And not just any brownies, these brownies could be entered into a brownie bake-off and still come out on top. That’s because you don’t need to cut out the essential ingredients that make brownies so addictive.
– No leftover cold pizza for you! You get a hot, fresh pizza to start your day and keep you feeling satisfied until lunch. This is the sort of meal that will make you wonder if you’re even on a diet anymore. But this is a real beauty, giving you eggs, bacon, spinach, and tomatoes for plenty of protein, nutrients, and antioxidants.
Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps
– After such a filling breakfast you won’t need much to keep yourself feeling good, and these chicken wraps have just the right spice to satisfy. Wrapping it up in lettuce skips the need for a grain-filled wrap so you’ll have an easier time digesting these after lunch. On the Paleo diet you’ll notice that you don’t have those mid-afternoon snooze sessions that you did before.
Cinnamon Apple Chips
– Get a cinnamony sweet midday snack and you will be perfectly ready for dinner when dinnertime arrives. This is an effective follow-up to the chipotle wraps you had at lunch, giving you a different flavor for your taste buds, with sweetness coming from the apples and the flavor that only cinnamon can provide.
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
– Let’s keep things simple with this amazing combination of beef and broccoli that rivals the local Chinese place without things like MSG. Use grass-fed beef and you’ll be getting more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which helps you burn fat instead of store it. It also helps to eat beef that is more like the sort of meat that Paleolithic man would have eaten, beef that’s been fed a natural diet instead of processed grains that cows would not naturally eat.
– Gotta serve up your stir fry with a side of Paleo-ified rice. It’s remarkably easy to make and you’ll be surprised at how closely it replicates the real thing. Instead of feeling bloated and stuffed after eating white rice, you’ll feel full and satisfied with cauliflower rice. And the bonus is you won’t be hungry again an hour later.
Grilled Peaches with Coconut Cream
– The sweet and sourness of the peaches is the perfect cap to the beef and broccoli stir fry. We’ve listed all desserts as optional because it’s really up to you and how you’re feeling that night. If you’re full and don’t want dessert, don’t have it. If you feel like you need that little something extra, or want to finish on a sweet note, go ahead and have it. You don’t need to wrestle with the choice in your head, just listen to your body.
– If you’re missing the crunch of your favorite cereal or granola, this special blend will cure the craving and make you love Paleo even more. You may have to tinker with breakfast when you first start up with Paleo and find what suits you best, a big breakfast or something lighter with a mid-morning snack. Find that sweet spot where you break your fast without slowing yourself down.
Shrimp Fried “Rice”
– You’ve probably got leftover cauliflower rice from the night before, making today the perfect time to make this delectable dish. While fried rice ordered from the local Chinese restaurant is likely not health food, when you make it according to the Paleo diet you’re getting a wholesome dish that is full of protein and vegetables and healthy coconut oil so you not only get a delicious lunch to enjoy, your body puts these nutrients to work for the rest of the day.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
– This smoothie tastes great anytime of year and is sure to make you love the rest of your afternoon. Smoothies make great snacks because they’ll fill you up without making you feel full, so you can still function at your best, and if you were having some hunger you won’t anymore.
– Sausage and kale get the starring roles here, but there’s also spaghetti squash filling in for any pasta you may have been expecting. You’ll notice that on Paleo you won’t be missing classic dishes like pasta or spaghetti, you just sub in foods that are better for you so you get more vitamins and minerals, with fewer calories and carbs. The end result is a more satisfying meal and better health.
Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower
– Cauliflower never tasted so good! The tangy balsamic vinegar softens the cauliflower up nice while loading it up with flavor. Roasting vegetables gives them a new flavor dynamic and if there’s a particular vegetable that you’re not very fond of, try roasting it before making up your mind completely.
– This is the last cookie bar recipe you’ll ever need, even approved by non-Paleo dieters as being ultra-delicious. Other diet plans make you give up things like cookie bars, or save them for a cheat meal of free day. There are no cheat meals or free days on the Paleo diet because it doesn’t bar you from having your favorite foods or use a ton of willpower to make it through your day or week.
– Pancakes don’t have to get the ax on Paleo, just be sure to follow our recipe and you’ll be helping yourself rather than hurting yourself. Can’t say that about most other pancakes out there, especially those that come from a mix or a restaurant. It’s good to regain that control over your food and only feed yourself high quality meals.
– This version of taco salad is the perfect light lunch to keep you cruising after a hearty breakfast. No giant deep fried taco shell bowl for this salad, just plenty of romaine lettuce which turns a calorie and fat-laden taco salad into a light, fresh, and still delicious lunch option. Ground beef provides protein to keep you sustained right up to your afternoon snack.
– If you made up the first batch of energy bars earlier in the week, you should still have a stash of them, unless you ate through them all already! Use one here and you’ll cruise through to dinner, knocking out any important tasks you have with ease. The beauty of the Paleo diet is the energy it provides you with to live life to the fullest and be your authentic self.
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
– Start your meal off right with this soup that provides a full serving of vegetables. Soup from a can may be convenient, but let’s face it, it often doesn’t live up to the taste expectation, and it’s loaded with sodium and preservatives. Also it was likely made quite some time ago and has been sitting in a metallic can this whole time. Go fresh and experience the difference.
Grass-fed Steak with Balsamic Marinade
– Using grass-fed beef makes a world of difference, and so does this marinade. Once you marinate a steak you’ll likely never go back to not marinating it. It makes it so much more tender and juicy that a non-marinated steak just doesn’t cut it anymore. When combined with the butternut squash soup and the beets and kale mix you’re getting a balanced and complete Paleo meal.
Rosemary Beets with Garlicky Kale
– The beets provide important antioxidants, while the kale provides phytonutrients and fiber, the perfect companion to a steak. The misperceptions is that Paleo is just about eating brontosaurus legs, but it’s actually more focused on vegetables. The difference is it doesn’t vilify meat, and allows for many types of meat to be eaten on a regular basis.
Chocolate Mug Cake
– Whip up this cake in less time than it takes to prepare the batter for other cakes. You won’t believe that a cake that tastes this good can be made in a matter of minutes. This is sure to save you from many a chocolate craving because you can make it faster than you can get to the store and buy a chocolate candy bar. Much easier than trying to convince your body that you don’t want chocolate.
– Enjoy a breakfast frittata with no post-breakfast remorse. Kale and red peppers make it a veggie delight! There’s bacon in this as well, but you don’t always have to have meat in every Paleo meal. If you want to leave out the bacon you can and this will still taste great. It’s always a good idea to follow what you’re craving and keep your body satisfied.
Homemade Ranch Dressing
– Dip these amazing shrimp tacos in some Paleo ranch and you’ll be transported to a new dieting dimension. There’s just something fun and novel about dunking food before eating it, and these tacos harness that and make it a fun lunch to eat. Any diet that lets you have ranch dressing is one that you have a higher chance of sticking with.
– Kale chips are the answer to any snack woes you’ve been having on Paleo. Who needs potato chips? These have all the crunch you’d expect from a potato chip, while also providing you with Vitamins A and C as well as minerals and plenty of fiber. You won’t get that from a bag of commercial potato chips.
Slow Cooker Pot Roast
– The slow cooker does the heavy lifting, and all you need to do is tolerate the delicious smells for a few hours. If you started the Paleo diet on a Monday this will be your Sunday dinner. Sunday roasts are popular in many places across the globe, and you may want to make this a tradition in your home as well. It brings the family together on a meal that is a proven crowd-pleaser.
– Top off the day with a few chocolate cookies and put a checkmark in the box next to “Rock It Out This Week”. Can you believe you’ve already made it through your first week of a diet? It’s amazing how good Paleo can make you feel without making you feel deprived, or that you’re missing out on all of the good things in life, like chocolate.
– Let’s start week two on the right foot with a classic breakfast dish made Paleo friendly, including the syrup! That’s right, instead of just having to go without French toast because of the no grains rule on the Paleo diet, you just make the bread grain-free and you’re all set. Maple syrup is a natural source of sweetness that you can enjoy responsibly on Paleo.
Spicy Pepper Chicken Stir Fry
– Spice things up with this amazing chicken stir fry that relies heavily on multi-colored bell peppers. You can make this quickly in the morning and take it with you to reheat at work. It’s colorful nature makes it more appealing to the senses, which translates to better tasting meal thanks to the psychology at work.
Banana Chocolate Shake
– It may taste like a dessert, but it’s the perfect way to calm down the flames from lunch and hold you over until dinner. It’s the perfect snack because it provides you with true energy to burn rather than making you reach for an “energy drink” or caffeinated beverage to get you through the rest of your day.
Stuffed Yellow Squash
– These squash get the ground beef treatment and make for a pretty well-balanced meal. It’s always good to have a built-in vegetable with your meal, and stuffing a squash with beef provides just that. The savory flavor of the beef goes well with the mild flavor of the squash, and this may just end up on your regular dinner rotation. The most successful Paleo dieters are the ones that have a collection of go-to dinner recipes to take some of the thought process out of dinnertime.
Garlic Roasted Broccoli
– Let’s tip things over to the veggie side of the scale with this killer broccoli recipe. Eating more broccoli is easy when it tastes this good, so keep some on hand and don’t be afraid to add it to any dinner that looks like it needs it. You’ll get a serving of fiber, which helps keep your digestive system moving.
Lavender Maca Brownies
– Make a batch of these brownies and you’ll have no trouble winning people over to the Paleo side of life. It’s just a better way of eating than anything else that’s out there. Try it and you’ll see. Week after week, month after month it’s just easy to stay on the Paleo diet, especially when you have a mouthful of brownie.
Stuffed Breakfast Peppers
– Breakfast is back with these stuffed peppers that will carry you well into the lunch hour. Take the time to make yourself a breakfast like this and it will pay dividends all day long. Waking up earlier is easy on Paleo because the food you’ll have eaten the day before won’t have a carryover effect to ruin your morning. Instead you’ll find yourself more in tune with the natural rhythm of life, up with the sun and raring to go.
“Spaghetti” with Meat Sauce
– No traditional spaghetti here, just a serving of meat and veggies that leave you caveman trim. It’s amazing how many “traditional” meals are ones that lead to weight gain. It’s no wonder that following the Standard American Diet leaves so many people overweight and in need of medical assistance. Flip the script and enjoy these classic dishes without jeopardizing your health.
Green Kale Smoothie with Mango
– The green smoothie craze is more than just a craze when you’re on Paleo, it’s a way to drink your vegetables. Mango helps the kale go down, and following our recipe gives this smoothie just the right flavor so you’ll look forward to the next time you can have this.
– Once you ditch the white potatoes, Shepherd’s Pie is a wholesome meal that covers all of your bases. This is another example of how you can borrow recipes from different countries, exploring the world without leaving home, and making adjustments so it’s all healthy. Just knowing you can make a dish like this quickly and easily takes a lot of stress out of the eating equation.
Caesar Salad with
Spicy Avocado Dill Dressing
– Use a bed of romaine lettuce, lose the croutons, and top things off with this dressing for a spicy kick. It’s not going to taste like a traditional Caesar salad, but you may end up preferring it this way. Paleo is all about broadening your horizons, not limiting what you can eat to just a handful of approved items.
No-Bake Walnut Cookies
– No bake means you can make this without involving your oven, but be sure to allot some time to cool them off. The prep work may be done in just minutes, but it’s going to be at least 30 minutes in the freezer before you can have one.
Savory Breakfast Muffins
– Muffins don’t have to be sweet, and these use eggs as their main ingredients so it’s breakfast in muffin form. The best part is that they have the portability of a muffin, so you can grab one and go on your way without having to sit down to a formal breakfast. Toss one on a paper towel and you don’t even need a plate and you’ll have a napkin ready when you’re done.
Citrus and Herb Chicken
– Prepare this the night before and it’s just 30 minutes in the oven for a filling lunch. We recommend going with organic free-range chicken so you’re not getting all of the hormones and drugs that are pumped into conventional chickens to get them to grow faster and to keep them from getting sick while they’re all caged up and living on top of each other. They’ll also be fed organic feed free of herbicides, pesticides, and GMOs.
Sweet Potato Chips
Ketchup with a Kick
– This snack provides the crunch of potato chips but provides fiber and antioxidants. The ketchup is optional but recommended in order to have a more satisfying snacking experience. Never forego anything that is allowed on the Paleo diet and will make for a better snack. It’s not part of the Paleo diet philosophy and will just make you want to cheat at some point.
Baked Salmon with Lemon and Thyme
– Salmon is one of the best things you can eat on Paleo, and we’ll have it again here, with a different twist. You’ll notice that you automatically get more healthy food into your regular line-up as a byproduct of following the Paleo diet. Rather than get caught up in all of the health news and scientific proof, it just makes sense that wholesome, natural food is what the body needs and truly craves, and that’s what you get on Paleo.
– This is a way to try a somewhat authentic dish, with the modifications in place to make it Paleo. You’ll never say you’re bored with what’s on the Paleo menu, as it borrows dishes from around the world, sampling herbs and spices that are new, exciting, and enticing. There’s just so much to try and discover, that you’ll always look forward to your next meal.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
– End the day’s eating with these muffins and you’ll avoid any late night trips to the fridge. When chocolate chip muffins are part of a diet plan, it shifts the focus from “What will I be forced to eat next?” to “What amazing thing am I going to get to eat next?”. That’s a seismic shift that means the difference between success and failure.
– Bet you never thought you’d have anything as swank as Eggs Benedict while on Paleo, but here it is in all its glory. Of course you’re not going to get a regular old English muffin, so instead these are resting on artichoke hearts. Leave it to our Paleo chefs to come up with unique and tasty ways to enjoy some of the finest foods there are.
– This is a dish you can make ahead of time, and actually tastes better once all of the ingredients have been able to rest with each other. Bombard your taste buds with robust flavor, and you’ll notice that it makes the dish even more satisfying. It’s like sensory overload, but in a good way. Try not to smirk when you see your coworkers trying to enjoy a sandwich.
– Our energy bars will keep you feeling charged up for the afternoon, without all of the mysterious ingredients you find in store bought bars. If snacktime rolls around and you don’t feel like a snack, save it for the next day. You never want to eat when you’re not feeling hungry, so listen to the signals from your body and snack accordingly.
Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes
– A classic dish that is sure to satisfy every member of the family. No complaints that you’re having chicken for dinner again when the chicken is infused with balsamic flavor and is served up with succulent roasted tomatoes. Protein from the chicken combines with lycopene from the tomatoes for a burst of nutrition. Combine it with the squash and onions and it’s quite the meal.
Roasted Butternut Squash and Onions
– Let’s add a bit more fiber to dinner with these delicious roasted squash and onions. Butternut squash shows up a lot in Paleo cooking because it is so versatile. It can be used to replace the thick noodles in a lasagna, or julienned to make French fries. There’s just so much you can do that it’s a good idea to keep yourself stocked with it.
Spiced Apples Baked in Brandy
– A sweet and spicy dessert infused with the flavor of brandy, but without the alcohol. It works nicely as a finisher to the meal described above, and is also a great dessert to serve up to impress your friends. You don’t even have to mention you’re doing the Paleo diet, as this is a dessert that no one will suspect is diet food.
– Zucchini and chorizo make a great meat and veggie pair and this will have you feeling ready to take on the day without slogging you down. If you’re not currently a big breakfast eater, and sometimes miss breakfast, you’ll find that a Paleo breakfast might get you out of bed. They’re tasty, easy to make, and make you feel awesome.
Tuna Avocado Lettuce Wraps
– With the avocado you’re getting fiber, healthy fat, and potassium, and the tuna provides omega-3s and protein. An awesome duo! This is a lunch you can turn to again and again because it covers all of the bases while leaving you fully alert and ready to tackle your afternoon tasks. Works great when you’ve had a big and satisfying breakfast and just need something to hold you over till snacktime or dinnertime.
Antioxidant Berry Shake
– Revisit this berry shake after your light lunch and you’ll have no problems finishing off your workday. This is a shake that you’ll always look forward to because the sweetness of the berries helps conquer any sweet cravings, without the need of refined sugar. Savor the berry flavor and you’ll feel that natural energy rush with no crash later.
