Yummy Paleo Meals For The Whole Family

Recently I shared information with you about my elevated glucose level, and what I was doing to improve my health. Today, I’d like to share some of the yummy paleo meals I’ve been making for our family. With some of these, I will make minor adjustments for my meal as opposed to the rest of the family.

Yummy Paleo Meals

Yummy Paleo Meals that the whole family will enjoy.

There are quite a few websites I go to for recipes. I also have the Whole30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom, which has a ton of great information and recipes. Eating Paleo does come with some challenges. First, you really do have to be prepared ahead of time for meals. However, I am starting to learn some staples to have on hand.

One of my favorite lunch items is either Chicken Salad or Tuna Salad in half of an avocado. I did create a recipe for my tuna salad below:

Ingredients

  • 5 oz, Premium Chunk White Chicken
  • 1 tbsp, Mayo With Olive Oil (35 Cal/Tbsp)
  • 46 grams, Grapes – Red or Green Seedless, by Grams (chopped)
  • 13 g, Carrots – Raw (Grams*) (chopped)

Combine ingredients, serve in 1/2 of the recipe in 1/2 of an avocado!

However, I do have to admit that eating tuna fish or chicken salad everyday gets a little old after awhile. I also started having eggs in various ways, but again, I started losing my taste for that as well. Most recently I have started adapting some recipes, that work well for lunch, to a single serving.

One of the recent items I made, which was amazing, was Cajun Garlic Shrimp on Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles). However, I did make some modifications with what I had on-hand.

  1. I tried Paleo once but I like bread too much, lol. Thanks for the recipes and tips though.

  2. Shrimp is a favorite dish we don’t have very often. Cajun is even better. Looking forward to trying this out

  3. Shrimp meal sounds delicious, especially with the cajun seasoning. Know what you mean by eating the same old thing and wanting to try something different.

  4. Yummy this looks great and having meals the whole family can eat are always great!

  5. That shrimp dish sounds amazing! I love that you cut the empty carbs and added in some veggies with those zoodles. I love healthy dishes that are full of flavor like these!

  8. That shrimp dish sounds amazing! I love that you cut the empty carbs and added in some veggies with those zoodles. I love healthy dishes that are full of flavor like these!

  9. Zoodles are an interesting concept! Will need to look into that. The shrimp looks so good though!

  10. These recipes look delicious and they are also easy to make. I can’t wait to try them. I’m sure my family would love the shrimp recipe.

  11. Yum! I haven’t had tuna salad in SO long this actually sounds pretty spectacular to this preggo right now. I will be trying it!

  12. I always ask my husband and kids to broaden their food pallets. Shrimp is one food that I am not fond of. I need to try this recipe out… the rest of my family loves shrimp!

    • My one daughter won’t eat any seafood, which is beyond my understanding. lol For the longest time, I just stopped serving any type of seafood, but then we were all missing out on it’s benefits. I’ve now started to replace the seafood with a different food item that she’ll tolerate. It’s not the easiest, but it works! 😃

  13. Glad to see a dish that shows how to cook the shrimp. I haven’t cooked a dish like this yet.

  14. Thank you for these yummy recipes. I need to watch out for my glucose too. I love sweets too much that sometimes I do not care how much I eat.

  15. I love zoodles! My kids don’t eat seafood like my husband and I do so this wouldn’t really work. It would be great for lunch for me during my day. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  16. I’ve been hearing a lot about Paleo lately! It sounds like it’s a great program. These all sound like great meals too – definitely worth a shot it seems!

  17. While we don’t follow any specific diets here, I do like to balance it out with things like this. The tuna salad and chicken salad are some of my favorites
