My girlfriend and I just started the a paleo type diet. We are still eating the leftover breads/Oreos her mom just sent us but I think this will work out well.

There is an app she has on her ipad called Paleo Plate and it's had some pretty damn good stuff on it so far.

Gives you meals with all meats including breakfast and dessert.

So, the first thing I made after going shopping was a breakfast casserole. Sounds lame, but damn it's tasty.

Basically a big handful of spinach and chopped onions covered with egg and baked. I'll hop on my tablet and get the recipe typed out for you guys.

Recipe: It doesn't call for meat but I brown up a pound of ground turkey seasoned with garlic powder and siriacha and add it to the mix.

1. Use coconut oil to grease a baking dish.
2. Throw in a big ol handful of spinach and mix chopped onions in with it.
3. Add turkey on top
4. Pour egg and coconut milk mix, with a dash of salt over the items in the baking dish. I use 6 or so eggs and a cup of milk(makes it sweeter)
5. Bake at 400 for 25-30 min or until eggs have set. Whichever comes first.

You're supposed to top with fresh avocado but I haven't done that yet. The one in the oven right now has red bell peppers in it as well. Those are left over from the meatloaf I made so I don't know how that will turn out.

Second thing I made, Pad Tai Chicken. Oh baby. If you want the recipe just let me know as I'll have to copy that for you.

Meat loaf is in the oven right now so I'm still waiting on the verdict for that one.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how good an easy some of these recipes are to make. The only problem I'm going to have with it is making sure I have breakfast food ready to go because I don't have time to cook a lot in the morning and that I make enough for leftovers for lunch when I'm at work because the way I cook makes these take a little bit longer because I pull the meat straight out of the freezer so it has to defrost before I can cook it which means I won't be able to complete a recipe on my hour lunch . With a little more planning I'm sure the next few weeks and the next few meals will go a lot smoother.

I've been avoiding sugar, legumes and grains for several weeks now. Well, mostly. After the first week it was pretty easy to do. I still need to get rid of the vegetable oil in my kitchen.
I haven't completely eliminated these things from my diet, but they are drastically lower than they were. I get some white rice once a week, because I eat sushi and it is wrapped in a little bit of rice. I have peanuts a couple times a week. I'll cheat once in a while for special occasions. I eat a lot of dairy because I love it and have no issue digesting it. I haven't bothered looking up any paleo recipes. Almost never cook by recipe anyway. I think my pants are getting a little more loose in the waist. I'm definitely not as hungry as I used to be, and that's the most noticeable thing. Half the time I forget to eat lunch. Been eating at Boston Market a lot more. Chicken + veggies, ready to go, tasty and priced right. I almost never eat potatoes anymore, even though they are permissible. I probably need to shift my balance of meat and veggies soon.

Ive been following a paleo sort of diet for nearly 2 years. I find the key to breakfast is to have some leftovers on hand. Or I typically cook a pound of ground beef and keep it in the fridge. Then in the morning, I cook some veggies in coconut oil and add some of the ground beef with some spices. Takes all of 15 mins and it's a nice filling meal.

There are several websites out there with good recipes.

One of my favorite sites is The meals are easy to make and have lots of flavor.

My wife and I did strict Paleo for about a year and got tired of it. We've adjusted it now to minimal sugar and only whole grains, I.e. quinoa and complex carbs such as sweet potatoes.

The biggest thing we've found to stay with it are the cheat meals. I don't do a cheat day. I spread out three cheat meals over the course of the week.

Also always have food available. If you're never hungry you're much less likely to want to cheat.

I'm not doing it strictly. Honestly, the only reason I did it at all was because of my girlfriend. But we all know how that story goes. It's still nice to have good stuff to cook so I'll stick with it just for simplicity and change.

The meatloaf was really good.
Made some chicken currie and spaghetti with carrot noodles that are both good as well. These are things I'll make again so it's not a lost cause.

I eat mostly Paleo. Every few weeks something may sneak in like pizza, ice cream, or some other treat.

I cook a lot of simple things using lean ground turkey such as meatballs with zucchini noodles, stuffed peppers, and meatloaf.

It's easy enough just to cook a meat and do two vegetable sides, or a stir fry. I don't find paleo to be hard or inconvenient. I always keep snacks on hand so I don't have to worry about choosing the wrong thing out of convenience when not at home. My body feels better with little to no grains, and less bloated. I did initially lose weight as well.

There are many good websites like,,, and just Google-ing.

Even if you end up not following it strictly, it's good to keep grain, processed foods, and sugar intake low. It's more of a lifestyle than a diet.

I have been eating Paleo for 3 1/2 years. I would suggest the primal blueprint over strict paleo, though am working on a Whole 30 (super strict paleo) right now. Primal is usually little more lenient on things like dark chocolate, wine and butter. I also have the occassional beer but I found out that I am gluten sensitive and avoid it as much as possible. In a year's time I dropped from 265 to 195 and with Crossfit, I leveled out to 185. I was 185 a previous time in my life but am a lot leaner than I was before. It definitely works and you will find things like odd aches, poor skin and generally feeling like crap goes away with a paleo diet.
