    Hey guys I just started the paleo diet but I'm not really sure on what to make. I start every morning with a protein shake for breakfast so I'm not really worried about that. I just want to know if anyone could give me some good eats for lunch and dinner. ( I also drink a shake after workout)

    Thank you!

    Do a search for paleo recipes.

    Protein shakes are unnecessary when doing paleo properly. icon_wink.gif

    No beef...mostly fowl and fish.

    And you get surprisingly high amounts of protein from nuts, seeds, and legumes.

    The diet consists mainly of meat and green veggies. Protein powder is frowned upon -- it is hard on the kidneys. Protein from meat is digested s-l-o-w-l-y which is how it is supposed to be absorbed.

    What I do is make a big amount of meat, usually in the slow cooker or oven roaster, then live off of it for days. Same with veggies. Pour TONS of olive oil on everything to get plenty of fat. Eat small amounts of paleo starch with every meal for immediate energy needs (carrots, sweet potato, butternut, kabocha, acorn squash, spaghetti squash). No sweets, little to no fruit except berries.

    The diet requires that you eat home cooked food made from scratch, unless you can find pre-made food of equivalent quality. Making a new meal every time you want something to eat is too much work, at least for me. So that is why I cook in quantity.

    There are endless resources on the web if you look.

    They might be necessary for skinny tall ectos who need more food than the average joe...

    Robb Wolf's book The Paleo Solution list everything to
    eat for 30 days in order to get use to the eating style. His website also has recipes and I bought a cook book called Well Fed.

    I've been paleo for over a year and a half now, and what I focus on eating is just a lot of animal protein (steak, chicken, fish, etc), and big salads with olive oil and vinegar on it. It might sound bland, but after a couple weeks of trying hard to stick to the paleo program it becomes second nature. Roasted nuts are great snacks, as is paleo jerky, clementines, and avocados. Depending on your level of activity throughout the week (I am a collegiate rower) you will need to up your levels of calories and protein to suit, as well as your amount of indigestible fiber (salad/greens) to avoid over constipation. On that note, your GI will have a bit of a rough time adjusting to the lack of milk and especially grains, and you might go through some--what have been described to me as 'sugar withdrawals'--but the benefits of paleo lifestyle are immense.

    I've done the paleo diet a few times. You'll deal primarily with means and veggies and some light fruit. You can also use sweet potatoes.

    I suggest bacon and eggs for starters, then making dishes with whole cuts of meat or chicken.

    There are a ton of resources like PotPaleo and NomNom Paleo on Facebook or a simple google search.


    Good luck to ya!

    sunjbill saidOne of my favorite lunch or dinner meals which I can eat for a few days or even longer is a pot roast with sweet potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. Lots of recipes online, find your favorite. Remember to add a good quality olive oil to the mix as well, healthy powerhouse of nutrients, and it tastes great.


    I use grass fed beef . Their is a big difference in the meat composition between grass fed ( natural) and force feed on grain ( unnatural)

    And that's why I won't go strict Paleo. I'm from New Orleans and can't go without my red beans and rice.

    They're not supposed to be, but I don't ascribe to the entire Paleo concept...just most of it.

    When I'm on my paleo kick, it is the single most difficult part about it. I miss beans and rice....

    The benefits for me, even short term are worth it, it's just not easy! I love beans...

    The other part is yogurt! Tho I still consume yogurt even on paleo, the benefits of it outweigh it not being part of the plan.
