Alright, those of you participating in the May 2013 Paleo Challenge are already noticing things. Changing the way you eat is a really big decision, such as trying to figure out what a paleo dinner might consist of. I’ve been really impressed with the dedication and willingness to share of my Facebook group participants. Some are noticing that their clothes are already fitting a little looser. A few have noticed new and different cravings. Several have even told me that they’re hungry less in the mornings since they stocked their kitchen and began eating all paleo foods for the month.
What changes have you noticed?
One of the questions I get asked a lot is what we eat for dinner. I’ll be honest here. We’re pretty simple and get stuck in a few basic recipes and just mix up the spices and ingredients a bit.
That’s what I love about cooking – you can take a basic idea and change it up based on what sounds good or what you have on hand at any given time.
Soups are a terrific example of this! Using different spices can completely change a basic ingredient like chicken or pork, too!
Here are our top paleo dinner ideas for our family of 6:
- Bunless Hamburgers (using lettuce instead)
- Chicken Wings
- Soup (made with homemade stock)
- Chili (no beans!)
- Breakfast for dinner (Paleo Pancakes *recipe forthcoming* or eggs and meat – or all 3!)
- Entree salads (Get creative with these! Use leftover meat, hardboiled eggs, bacon, guacamole, salsa, homemade salad dressings, or whatever your family likes. I like to do a salad bar presentation so everyone gets to make their own version of delicious!)
We love to accompany any of these meals with fresh fruit or a fruit smoothie, as well as yummy fresh or steamed vegetables. Broccoli and salads are a standby. Here’s a video I made to give some paleo dinner tips:
You can do this!! Keep on keepin’ on, and let’s kick this challenge in the rear!
You deserve to feel better, eat healthier, and take better care of yourself through nourishing nutrition. I’ll see you back here tomorrow!
