I don't think any paleo recipe collection would be complete without meatloaf. This recipe is also gluten free and Whole30 compliant. I cook for just my husband and myself, so I generally have to cut this recipe in half for us. I also generally use grass-fed beef when I'm cooking anything that requires ground beef, so those are just a few options for you to tweak the recipe a little to make it work for your family.
This recipe is not just Paleo, but also Whole30 friendly. And, so easy. To make it Whole30, you need to be sure to use nitrate-free, sugar-free bacon, so keep that in mind when you're doing your grocery shopping. If you want to cut down on time to prepare, I also buy my Brussels sprouts already washed and halved. I'll admit it, I'm lazy and one thing I hate about cooking is having to cut the vegetables. It makes life easier for me and guarantees I'll be eating the sprouts in a delicious meal rather than having them rot in my refrigerator.
I love avocados. I've heard some people say that they don't eat them too often because of the fat, but I have one almost every day and have never experienced any weight gain from them. Usually when a recipe calls for half an avocado I just use the whole thing. The fat they provide is more of the healthy variety. So, feel free to whip up this wonderful egg salad from Fox Valley Foodie.
Buddha bowls are wonderful because they can be adjusted to fit so many different eating plans. Plus, they are great for picky eaters because you can leave out things like, say, peas (which I personally hate). But it can be tough to know where to start. If you're the kind of person who likes having a recipe, Fit Foodie Finds has a starter guide and few recipes. You'll be making your own creations in no time!
Buddha-type bowls don't have to just contain veggies. They can be great for fruits and these smoothie bowls, while listed as "breakfast" can also be a good alternative to a hot dinner bowl. Imagine having one of these for dinner on a really hot day!
This would be one of the last things you think you could eat on a Paleo diet. But, we humans are very creative and adaptable and if there's a way for us to get our favorite foods in and still be able to say it's Paleo, you can bet we'll find it. These pancakes are made with just two ingredients and they do have a banana flavor. You might have to play around with the egg to banana ratio to get the batter to be the consistency that you like, but it will be worth it.
