Welcome to my perfect paleo 7 day meal plan from Heavy2Healthy.net. This is where we help you out along the way to design your very own 7 day Paleo meal plan.
It can be really difficult deciding what food to eat when you first start the paleo diet so I decided to put together a meal plan for newbies. Even if you’re not new to the paleo diet I’m sure there be some meal ideas below that you never thought of before. The best thing about eating paleo is the wide variation of dishes available. There are literally thousands of dishes you can have on this diet and more are being created everyday – who said the paleo diet was boring? I love eating all kinds of meat, vegetables and fruit so I tried to keep my meals as varied as possible.
I remember when I first started the paleo diet. Trying to choose what to eat and what was paleo were the hardest things about going paleo. I don’t remember there being too much information online like there is today. In the old days, I had to do a lot of research to come up with some recipes and there was a lot of trial and error before I perfected my meals.
The diary below will show you exactly what I ate last week from Monday – Sunday!
The meal plan includes;
- All paleo meals I ate including breakfast, lunch and dinner
- My Grocery shopping list
The majority of recipes serves 4 people but you may need to double up of half depending on if you are serving more or less people.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day1)
Breakfast: For breakfast I had Paleo Fruity Breakfast Pancake! This was the perfect start to my day because it contains plenty of fruit and the boost I got from this helped to dispense those Monday morning blues!
Lunch: For lunch I had a delicious Cooked Chicken Salad. I love chicken and had some time of my hands to make this. I really enjoyed the fresh avocados and fresh tomatoes in this recipe.
Dinner: For dinner I had these Paleo Carrot Linguine Meatballs. I wanted something quick and easy after a hectic day so this was perfect. I also wanted something quite meaty! So this was ideal.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day2)
Breakfast: For Tuesdays breakfast I had Avocado and Egg with Bacon. This made for a delicious low carb paleo breakfast and only took 25 minutes to prepare. My partner really enjoyed this too! Probably because he loves bacon so much.
Lunch: I had salmon and sweet potatoes. This is one of my all time favorites.
Dinner: For dinner I wanted something with a bit of spice added so had Indian Spiced Slow Cooked Pulled Pork. This actually took 6 hours to cook but was well worth the wait.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day3)
Breakfast: I was very busy on Wednesday morning so wanted something quick and easy to prepare. I had a Tomato Paleo Smoothie. I didn’t need many ingredients for this and the smoothie only took 5 minutes to prepare so is great for when you’re in a rush and on the go.
Lunch: I had Tuna Salad in Cucumber Boats for todays lunch. This was very quick to prepare and made for a very healthy lunch full of protein.
Dinner: Today for dinner I have this delightful Garlic Roasted Cod. This was delicious and definitely one of my favorite dinners. Its very flavorsome and only took 25 minutes to cook!
Paleo Meal Plan (Day 4)
Breakfast: I woke up late today and had a banana for breakfast! It was 9am and I knew I would be having lunch in a few hours so was happy with just a banana today for breakfast. I also had some paleo biscuits prepared for a snack in case I got hungry before lunch.
Lunch: We had lunch out with friends today and visited this fabulous steak restaurant. And to my surprise they had sweet potato chips! Steak and chips is one of my favorite dishes so being able to eat this on the paleo diet is wonderful.
Dinner: After having quite heavy lunch I wanted something a little lighter for dinner so went for pistachio-crusted salmon. I also had a small bowl of salad on the side. I really enjoyed the crunch from the pistachio’s and it made a refreshing change.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day 5)
Breakfast: I felt quite hungry this morning! Maybe because I had such a light dinner yesterday evening! So I had some Paleo Breakfast Burgers – great for meat lovers. The burgers only took 10 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook and was ideal at keeping my huger at bay.
Lunch: I knew I was going to be out and about at lunch time today so prepared this delicious Cooked Chicken Salad the night before. It was great for on the go because it did not need to be cooked so I could simply eat it when I was ready.
Dinner: Its Friday evening so normally a takeaway night in our house! We love curries so had this Paleo Chicken Curry. It was great being able to eat a curry without the guilt associated. This is the best thing about Paleo, you can still eat your favorite dishes without the guilt.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day 6)
Breakfast: Today for my paleo breakfast I had Breakfast Skillet. I wanted something really healthy today for breakfast and this was perfect for my needs. Although it contains a lot of ingredients, it is quick and easy to make and can feed the whole family.
Lunch: I had Sweet Potato Hash. This took a long time to prepare but was well worth the wait.
Dinner: For Saturday night dinner I had Garlic Roasted Cod for the second time this week. I’m a big fan of sea food (and mostly all food!) so really enjoyed preparing this dish again.
Paleo Meal Plan (Day 7)
Breakfast: I crave pancakes at least twice a week! so decided to have Paleo Fruity Breakfast Pancakes again today for breakfast. These are a great way to start to the day and are very easy to prepare.
Lunch: We traditionally have a Sunday Roast for lunch and you can incorporate this perfectly into your paleo diet plan. So we had a delicious beef with thyme, garlic and red wine (Yes, with red wine!) with plenty of vegetables.
Dinner: After having a big Paleo roast for lunch we just wanted something light for our evening meal so went for this beef and winter vegetable soup. This was a great way to end the week.
