Dinner in a dash

Ok so eating healthy can be time consuming and eating a Paleo style diet can be restrictive, at first.  So here are a few quick dinner ideas that are sure to keep the family happy and the belly's full.  

If at all possible take a day once a month and cook several dishes that you can freeze, like spaghetti sauce, soup, burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, gravies and sauces.

Tuna, salmon or chicken salad (mayo, peppers, celery, fresh herbs) served in the half shell of an avocado.  Keep veggie sticks like celery and carrots on hand to scoop up any salad that may have spilled over.  

Packaged grass-fed beef hotdogs (yes they do exist) cut into 1 inch pieces put on a skewer with cherry tomatoes, red peppers and dill pickles, grilled.  Serve with a side of sauerkraut.  

Shrimp and frozen veggie stir fry.  Throw them all into a sauté pan with some coconut oil a dash of coconut aminos and pepper.   

Eggs Many Ways  - make them ahead of time and freeze them.   Or sauté some frozen veggies in a sauté pan with grass-fed butter and a couple minutes before they are cooked add several eggs, season with salt and pepper.  

Serve a charcuterie plate with some grass-fed salami or summer sausage with cherry tomatoes, carrots and other veggie slices and if tolerated some cubes of organic, raw, grass-fed cheese. 

Veggie and fruit kabobs with hard boiled eggs.   

Smoothie of dark leafy greens, some veggies like broccoli, red peppers or cucumbers with (if tolerated) organic, raw, grass-fed whole milk or kefir milk with some berries and coconut oil.  Save left over smoothie and put in popsicle molds for a tasty snack.   

Crock pot meat topped with grass-fed butter served with a side of fermented foods and veggie sticks

Stuffed peppers.  Crock pot meat or grass-fed ground beef put into a pepper, topped with (if tolerated) organic, grass-fed cheese and avocado.  Precook the meat then add it to the peppers and bake for 15 minutes at 350.
