Delicious Paleo Meals
With many people shifting to a Paleo diet, there has been a growing desire for Paleo recipes. Paleo meals are relatively simple and easy to make. A basic Paleo meal contains a piece of meat that is baked, poached, stewed, or seared and a side of vegetables. There are many recipes readily available that help you take the basics and turn them into a flavorful meal.
One popular and easy Paleo meal to make is steak and eggs. Steak and eggs are two important parts of Paleo diet, so by serving them together you can kill two birds with one stone. For this meal, you will need a large steak, 2 eggs, 2-3 tablespoons of tallow or ghee, and paprika (optional). Heat a pan with 2 tablespoons of tallow or ghee over medium heat. Put paprika on the steak, place the steak in the pan, and cook 4 minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. If you prefer your steak well done, then leave it in the pan until it is cooked to your liking. Once your steak is done, remove it from the pan. Then, crack the eggs into the pan and cook them until the whites are no longer transparent. When they are done, serve with the steak. For extra deliciousness, dip the steak in the yolk!
For people who enjoy seafood, a delicious and easy meal to make is grilled scallops in a red pepper sauce. You will need 12 large bay scallops, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and 1 lemon. To make the red pepper sauce, you will need 1 large roasted red pepper, 1 garlic clove, juice from half of a lemon, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. To begin, squeeze lemon juice over the scallops and let them sit. Put all the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor and mix until you have created a smooth sauce. Then pour the sauce in a saucepan and place over medium heat. After you start to heat the sauce, heat a grill pan and brush with it with the coconut oil. Once the grill is hot, add the scallops and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. When theyíre done, place the scallops on a plate and pour the red pepper sauce over it.
Lastly, if you prefer chicken, chicken legs and angel hair cabbage is a very easy meal to make. For this recipe you will only need 3 ingredients: chicken legs, green onion, and angel hair cabbage. Start by cooking the chicken legs in a bit of water over medium-high heat. When theyíre done, remove them from the pan. The water that the chicken was cooking in has now become a chicken broth. In the chicken broth, add the green onion and the angel hair cabbage. Cook over medium heat and make sure you cook the green onions and angel hair cabbage until they are soft but not mushy! Once you have done this, simply add the chicken back on top and enjoy.
There are a plethora of recipes that work with the Paleo diet. You can choose from meat, poultry, or seafood and a variety of vegetables. After you have chosen which recipe you enjoy the most, finish your meal off with fresh fruit for dessert!
