If healthy living has an enemy, it’s lack of time and energy. Especially for those of us who work as hard as we play, finding the time to make a healthful dinner after a full day is a challenge. Pair that with the burden of gathering the right ingredients and working out a meal plan for paleo dieting; cooking a meal every night of the week might seem impossible. But eating in the spirit of our Paleolithic ancestors doesn’t have to be as insurmountable as conquering a mammoth.
The rules for easy meals remain the same, whether you’re prepping the night before when you can, adding a few one-pot and 30-minute meals into the week’s mix, or making breakfast for dinner. Paleo dieters can even use their restrictions as an advantage. Focus on few, but quality, ingredients, cutting out the grains and dairy, and minimize the steps to make a single meal. If all else fails, one can always turn to steak and veg.
That said, there’s plenty of help out there for the paleo lifestyle. Try these recipes crafted by the experts for a complete seven-day meal plan.
Ciarra Hannah calls her mushroom bake “clean-ingredient comfort food at its best… and possibly its easiest.” The Frugal Paleo Cookbook author said, “The simple pork bolognese sauce can pull double-duty served over veggie noodles as well, giving you versatility if you need to stretch the full recipe into multiday meal prep.”
