You wrote this a while ago, and maybe found your answer.
I found there are all kinds of healthy things that are on the Paleo. Did you ever try some baked goods (using Coconut flour or Almond Flour).

Wonderful!! I had a big container of baby spinach and wanted a change from eating it as a salad green. This recipe is delicious and so fast to prepare. Thanks.

Thanks for the tip on the Paleo Pot!
I am new to the Paleo diet, but have had some awesome results.
I'd like more recipes. I'm a somewhat picky eater so it's nice to see a large variety of recipes and ideas

We have eaten paleo off and on for the past year and absolutely feel better when we are on. The best place I have found for recipes and free e cookbooks is following Paleo Pot on FB. He posts when there are free e-books offered from Amazon. So you either load them on your phone, kindle, iPad whatever and you get some amazing resources.

Just a thought for the trail mix, dry some veggies to add in, carrot pieces, sweet potato, etc.

I'm just getting started on the Paleo diet also. In less than a week, I've lost 2.5 lbs and my doctor is very impressed already. I'm finding it difficult to find a recipe for a trail mix that doesn't have tree nuts, almonds, or coconut (I have a severe allergy) but still looks appealing and tastes good. I made my own for this week with unsalted sunflower nuts, natural sesame seeds, unsalted blanched peanuts, dark chocolate covered cranberries and a few dried apricots. It all seemed to be the same color. Does anyone have any suggestions? emoticon

Lisa - Don't know what to tell you other than try try try to stay away from the pasta. When it comes to potatoes, I love them and cannot see myself living without for very long. When you make mac and cheese is it like Kraft? if it is, get the individual cups so you are only making one serving for him (and, by the way, they don't taste the same at all!!). The way I feel is that if I am cooking, you eat what I put on the table. If you want mac and cheese, you make it and you eat it ALL. Unfortunately, I no longer have this struggle. Boo hoo emoticon

Does anybody struggle with a significant other who refuses to eat healthier? I'm trying to get to 100% Paleo, but my SO doesn't like vegetables and so I find myself making other sh** like boxed potatoes and mac & cheese for him - but then I end up eating it too. If you've got one like mine, how do you deal with it??

I am so stupid sometimes!!! I was at the grocer yesterday and saw a beef roast (organic, grass fed) that I really wanted for my crockpot. Only problem was it was very large and being a single woman with only the refrigerator freezer, cannot store too much. I asked the butcher if he had any smaller beef roasts. He told me to pick one out and he took it back and cut it in half! SAVINGS!! Then on to the fruits and veggies. I asked the veggie guy to cut off all of the stem of the broccoli. I was amazed that I am now only going to pay for the size I want not what the grocer says to sell it at. The veggie guy said what a good idea to sell individual heads of broccoli rather than 3 heads tied together. Would save him time and me money.

My nutritional therapist recommended Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillippo, BS, NC. I purchased this book and wow - the recipes are incredible. She also has "medical issue" related menu plans. I love this book.

I am a single woman and I also find the constant cooking to be a pain. I never thought I would buy a larger slow cooker but I did. I like to come home and have the house smelling like I have a personal chef!! Saturdays I create my weekly menu plan and shop for groceries on Sunday after church. I found a great store (regular grocery store) that has a tremendous organic fruit and vegetable selection. They also sell local organic grass fed meat. It is more expensive than the conventional but I figure that since I am single, I can afford to purchase these. My menu plan consists of a lot of soups and stews that I can throw together at night and set the slow cooker in the morning. I then freeze what I am not going to eat immediately (in serving sized portions). I am limited to freezer space so I keep a running list of what I have frozen so I incorporate those frozen meals into my eating plan. Also, I try to freeze these portions flattened out in the zip bags - shorter thawing time and saves a ton of space in my freezer. Happy paleo eating. emoticon

I found that the hardest part wasn't tasty food, but the massive amount of cooking that has to be done when you eliminate things that come in boxes, bags, and wrappers. There are tons of things you can make and eat, and tons of places to go for recipes.

My favorites are:

www.marksdailyapple.com/#axzz2UDag9Bsk
nomnompaleo.com/
www.whole9life.com/
www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/

Whole9 is the home of the Whole30, which is an extremely strict, regimented elimination diet that is used to determine food sensitivities. It's hard, but it's well worth it to learn how food affect you. The site and the Whole30 Success Guide have recipes that are completely grain-, legume-, sugar-, and dairy-free.

I especially like Nom Nom Paleo, since the blogger is a shift working mother of two with plenty of advice for fitting all the cooking into a busy life. There is a MASSIVE recipe index with any kind of dish you can think of.

The Clothes Make The Girl blogger wrote two cookbooks (Well Fed and Well Fed 2) that has an entire chapter dedicated to make-ahead, bulk prep, and time-saving strategies. She has recipes and recommendations for any kind of flavor you want, from basics to international inspirations. She has a recipe for an olive oil based mayonnaise that you can make in a food processor or blender, and it's amazing for adding a punch of flavor to anything you think of to put it on.

These barely scratch the surface of the resources for paleo recipes that are out there. I would suggest, however, not trying to get into the stuff like "paleo pancakes" or "paleo muffins," or anything that's a recreation of a grain-based food or dessert. Not. Worth. The. Bother. They taste nasty and they're almost never worth the expensive nut flours it takes to make them. Unless you find a cookbook that's had its recipes extensively tested, don't even mess with it.

Other than that, the best thing you can do for yourself is stock up on garlic and onions, real butter, and decent olive oil, and mix yourself a container of chef's salt (equal parts coarse sea salt and ground black pepper) and have it in a convenient spot. I take a little container with me in my lunch bag every day to sprinkle on my salad. Very handy, and very basic.

I found some recipes on this website that look pretty good.

thepaleodiet.com/paleo-diet-recipes/

There are also a number of cookbooks for paleo diet out there, and should be available either online www.barnesandnoble.com/s/paleo-diet?keywor
d=paleo+diet&store=book
or at your local library or bookstore.

Good luck!

Has anyone else ever been on this diet? My doctor has recommended it with all of my medical issues. It is just so hard to follow. I need some new recipes that will help put flavor into the food.
