Easy paleo recipes

I'm interested in trying the paleo diet and came across this list of easy paleo recipes for beginners but would like community input on what other recipes to try before I go grocery shopping. What are some staples of this diet? Have you tried any of those recipes? Which would you recommend?

I have been full paleo and also primal (includes dairy). Right now I'm staying away from pasta, but am eating bread. More of a whole foods/homemade approach.

Paleo staples: safflower oil, coconut oil, spinach, sweet potatoes, hamburger, eggs.

Safflower oil has a higher cook temp and is better than olive oil in that respect. Oils are on the line, but cooking without fat is ridiculous.

Those recipes all try to create bread out of non-bread. I have not played with too much of that, too much engineering for me.

Try eating 1/2 veggie, 1/4 protein, 1/4 fat portions of meals and that hits it pretty well.

😊 it's a great way to eat, very clean.






Eat anything you want, but make it yourself.

Interesting, I didn't know you could do that.

Thanks for the reply, it seems like a healthy diet but sometimes difficult to cook for (just like you said about engineering the bread).

IMO, it's just another fad diet with no special powers and no basis in fact. Your response to Liz illustrates why I get irritated with stuff like this. You can do whatever you want. Cutting out entire food groups and feeling guilty about what you eat is not healthy.

And one of my pet peeves is the idea of "clean" eating. It implies that the rest of us are eating dirty, which is pretty insulting Talk about succumbing to marketing (from another thread).

cookswithlove.....just wondering if you're affiliated with Home Bistro Blog, since several of your posts link back to that one particular site.

Pardon me, I said Liz and I meant Jeni.

Good question, Cheryl.

My apologies if what I wrote sounded like an attack on what other people eat. All I was trying to say was, it seems like an interesting diet I'd like to try, and I like to be well prepared if I'm going to try out a new diet so I can stick to it.

Nope but I have been reading their blog a lot today since a friend recommended it to me.

Good question, Cheryl.
How can you see people's names?

Edit: figured it out :)

No need to apologize; it wasn't you. Jeni said it's a very "clean" way to eat. I find it unnecessarily restrictive and I think it contributes to disordered eating (as distinguished from eating disorders - not the same thing).
