Paleo Table

One of the problems  with most paleo sites isn’t the recipes. It’s trying to coordinate your grocery list for convenient trips to the store with out buying too much and having the food spoil. Shopping paleo isn’t expensive if you plan right and don’t buy so much fresh food that it spoils before you get to enjoy the goodness! This new site helps to solve this dilemma. Go to the website by clicking the banner above and sign up for their email list. They will send you one weeks shopping list along with all the recipes for your whole week’s meals (that’s one meal for two mostly it looks like). You still have to plan the other 2 meals and snack, sorry!  The once a professional writer, Pam King, is loving life and her family has inspired her to start this blog to share their delicious paleo meal plans with you! Paleo is easy and delicious…with a little inspiration and planning! That they have already done for you!

Tips to Make Paleo Eating Easier

  1. Join a CSA (consumer supported agriculture). We belong to a local CSA, Wild Goose Farm, that provides fresh, organic veggies weekly from June through October. You pay for the entire growing season upfront in return for the freshest local organic produce the midwest has to offer. The variety will challenge you to try new veggies and new recipes.
  2. Eat organic whenever possible. In the off season when organic local produce isn’t available, an increasing amount of stores are carrying enough organics to get by. My go-to store is Yokes, but many other stores often have small sections of organic produce.
  3. Join a meat-buying group or find a source for grass-fed meats. Find a farm that offers a great variety of grass-fed beef, sustainable seafood, free-range chicken, etc. Check eatwild.com for a provider in your area.
  4. Purge your pantry and fridge of all non-paleo items. Pass unopened items on to a local food pantry or shelter.
  5. Pick one day a week to roast a bunch of veggies. In less than two hours, you can clean, cut, and roast enough veggies for weekly lunches. it makes life a whole lot easier, reduces waste from raw veggies gone bad, and makes paleo lunches a no-brainer.
  6. Eating Out – It seems like most people living the paleo lifestyle tend to eat at home more often. We do the same, although we average a dinner out at least once a week. You can make restaurant meals be great. Blackened salmon on a bed of asparagus, topped with a chunky avocado and tomato mixture, you can usually always substitute the starch for veggies. Yum–and totally paleo! Turn down the desert, but a small cup of mixed berries could be a good substitute.

I can usually find at least one paleo-friendly menu item wherever we go. I do try to stay away from steak when we eat out since it is almost always corn-fed. Sticking to the simple paleo guidelines enables me to eat a meal and not have to go home and immediately crash out because I’m so full of non-paleo stuff. Meat, veggies, little fruit or starch, no grain, dairy or sugar 🙂 Enjoy!
