People who follow the paleo diet only try to eat what our
ancestors ate back way back in the day. This means that the only thing you can
eat are the things that our caveman ancestors could hunt or forage. This means
that if you can only eat meat, nuts, fish, greens seasonal vegetables and
People who follow the paleo diet are generally attracted to
it because of the simplicity of the diet and the clear outlines of what you can
and can’t eat, and because whatever food you are in taking is all super healthy
One of the main appeals of the paleo diet is that you won’t
need to count calories ever again. Calories are not created equal. So eating
800 calories of fresh vegetables is better for you than eating 800 calories of
fast food, as you would expect.
Today we would like to share with you 5 of our favourite
Paleo meals, after trying these you may become converted – who knows!
& Kale Beef Stew
First on this list is this extremely heathy beef stew. This melt
in your mouth recipe from girlmeetspaleo is everything you want comfort food to
be. Delicious, hearty, and healthy. The initial cooking of the stew only takes
around 20 minutes, then you will need to leave it to simmer for around an hour.
Plenty of time to get some of your weekly chores done and dusted!!
A word of warning, as the author states this recipe does
make a lot of stew, so if you don’t plan on eating any throughout the week, we
recommend reducing some of the ingredients so you are not wasting food!

Squash & Meatballs
If you are feeling lazy then this is the perfect meal for
you. All you need is a spaghetti squash, ground sausage, tomato juice, garlic,
olive oil and seasoning. Put your tomato
sauce, olive oil, garlic, and seasoning into your slow cooker, cut your squash
in half and place face down in the slow cooker. Roll your sausage meat into
balls and again place in your slow cooker then cook!
The best thing about this recipe is that you can either cook
it on high temp for 3 hours or if you are busy and need a little bit more time,
cook for 5 hours on a slow heat.
When the squash is cooked use a fork to pull the squash
apart to make spaghetti. To view this recipe, click here.
Beef and Blueberry
Stuffed Sweet Potato
Now a recipe for the more adventurous people out there… this
recipe, like most of the greats, has been created out of leftovers. So to
recreate this dish you will need some slow cooked beef either left over from
your meal the night before, or you can just whip some up while you are at work.
All you will need is 1 sweet potato, slow cooked beef,
blueberries and seasoning. Cut the potato in half and cook it for 20 minutes, scoop
out the middle and mix with the beef and the berries, heat the mixture in a pan
and then re-add it to the potato skin.
There you have it – the perfect left overs meal. Click here to view the recipe.
