One of the challenges that comes with eating a paleolithic diet is finding the time to cook and prepare meals, but it does not have to be an all out cooking extravaganza in the kitchen. The meat could be as simple as throwing some grass-fed burgers on the grill or forming the ground meat into meatballs and throwing them in the oven. With vegetables, pick a leafy green of some kind and sauté it in a skillet with garlic, onions, and an oil of your choice. Add an avocado to the side and voilà, a quick and easy dinner. If cooking vegetables still sounds intimidating, you can always steam whatever vegetable you like (cauliflower, broccoli, greens, onions, etc.), then take it off the stove and dress it with a little oil, lemon, salt, and pepper.
If you happen to find the time to get a little more creative in the kitchen or you know that you won’t have time to cook at all for the next few days, be sure to double or even triple your recipe so that you have meals for other days during the week.
