If you're new to Paleo. Read this introduction.

This blog is primarily based on Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint.  Read this first to get a good general overview.

If you are sitting on the fence regarding Paleo - maybe thinking it will be too hard to give up your usual bread, pasta, etc. you might want to consider The Perfect Health Diet (Paleo plus safe starches) 

In this blog you will find information and recipes that will make eating Paleo - regardless of which version you choose - quick, simple and easy.  My secret to making it work? Adopting a few easy habits and preparing ahead of time.

Here is all the backup information you will need :

First, read Food Basics 101 and Saving Money on Food to find out how you can eat Paleo and still save on your food budget. Then read Why you need a Slow Cooker where I explain how this inexpensive appliance can save you tons of time and money.  Here are a few more posts on specific kitchen equipment that can save you time and energy.

Once you are ready to plan your meals, these posts will help.

The biggest problem for most people is what to make for dinner, and this is where this blog will be the most help.  I have divided my dinners into 3 kinds :
  • Simple rubs and marinades to use when making barbecue meals, and simple stir-frys and pan-frys.  Just add a salad and vegetables and you have dinner.
  • Quick dinners that you can make in 30 minutes or less
  • Easy slow-cooker meals to start in the morning so your dinner is ready when you are.
You will find all the recipes you need under the RECIPES tab above, including a large section of side dishes to complement your meals and a section on desserts.  I am constantly updating this list as I find and try new recipes to make sure you have lots of variety to choose from.

I also believe in cooking ahead meals when possible so I can have healthy Paleo "frozen dinners" available for even quicker dinners when I don't want to cook at all.  Check the COOK AHEAD tab for more information on how I do this. 

What foods you can and can't freeze

If you are looking to lose weight, my No Deprivation Weight Loss Plan will show you how you can do this by eating your favourite foods while still following the Primal Blueprint recommendations.
