Paleo Meals: Paleo Diet Recipes

The Paleo diet is not a very common one among most people. However, it is actually one of the most effective diet regimens available. This is the reason why it would be best for you to consider learning more about it and you might just end up wanting to embrace the diet yourself.


When you were still at school learning about world history and evolution, you might have come across the terms “Paleolithic Era,” “cavemen,” “Stone Age” and everything that has something to do with the period when the healthiest and fittest humans lived. About 2.5 million years ago, the first humans pioneered in the diet known today as the Paleo Diet, Blueprint Diet, or the Hunter-Gatherer Diet. Back then, the hunter-gatherer humans lived in their healthiest extent as they only ate lean meats and seafood, fruits and vegetables, and seeds and nuts. They did not consume any inorganic, packaged and processed foods that were already laden with chemicals and substances that may prove to be unhelpful if not harmful to the human body.

Essentially, the Paleo diet dictates that only foods that are obviously edible should be eaten. For instance, rice is not recommended in the Paleo diet, as well as other grain-based products such as cereals and bread. Moreover, dairies are not also allowed in the diet since the cavemen did not know how to milk cows and other livestock back then. Fatty cuts of meat are also restricted in this diet since livestock did not eat fatty feeds before.

Although the Blueprint diet sets a lot of limitations when it comes to the food that you will eat while following this diet, there are also a lot of food choices that you can use as ingredients to great Paleo meals.

Below are some of the most unique Paleo meal recipes that you can enjoy once you choose to follow the Paleo diet.

Leaf Veggie Chips


  • A heap of any leafy vegetable of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon of melted cooking fat
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. As you do this, wash the heap of the leafy vegetable in warm water. Drain and then dry. You may choose to cut the stems and leaves to shape them as chips. Then, put the melted cooking fat in a bowl. Put in the vegetable cuts in the bowl so that the fat is spread over them. Season the vegetable cuts with the lemon juice, pepper and salt. Transfer the veggie cuts in a baking dish. Proceed to baking the veggie chip cuts for 30 minutes. Serve with a delicious dip.

You can enjoy the leaf veggie chips during snack or together with other main meals.

Spinach and Shrimp Curry


  • 2 lbs of peeled shrimp
  • 2 cups of shredded spinach
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • ½ cup of chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp of curry powder
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp of tomato paste
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


Put a large enough skillet over low heat. Add the coconut oil and then the chopped onions. Sauté the onion until it turns slightly brown in color. Add the ground black pepper and salt to add moisture and taste to the onions. Next, add the curry powder and tomato paste. Put in the coconut milk and chicken stock next. Stir well until all the ingredients are mixed well enough. Then, add the spinach and shrimps, add another pinch of salt and cook further for another five minutes.
