The Paleo Diet consist of mainly meat, fish, veggies, fruits, nuts and eggs. We listed down all the ingredients from the book, went grocery shopping and bought lots of stuff! Chicken breasts, salmon, halibut and dory fillets, ground beef, sirloin steaks, veggies, nuts, some herbs and spices and a few organic stuff. It was the best grocery shopping ever!
These are some of the meals we had for the past couple of weeks (I rotate it of course, with slight modifications).
(the book actually says to use Kelp noodles, which is made of sea vegetable but we couldn't find it so I used what's available in the kitchen - the tri-color pasta. It's still made of veggies right?)
(this is my hubby's favorite!)

The meals were seriously so easy to prepare and SO delicious - even for amateur cook like me! Just season the fish/meat with salt, pepper and some herbs/spices, pop them in the oven and while waiting for them to cook, I steamed the veggies. The whole process took only 30 minutes! Sometimes lesser, especially for chicken because I've prepared it the night before (marinate it) so the next day I just need to take it out from the refrigerator and bake it. I usually start cooking at 12-ish noon and everything is prepared by the time my husband gets home for lunch.
We don't completely cut off rice in our diet tho - we make exceptions for weddings and lunch/dinner at my parents' (my mom cooks the best lauk kampung ever, it's hard to resist). This is after all, just a trial! ;)
