These Paleo-friendly meal plans are for six dinner recipes and a dessert thrown in for fun! All of these recipes are paleo friendly, seasonal, and most can be easily adapted to be Keto/Low-Carb or Whole30 friendly.
We’ve got another delicious week ready for you!
This week there are TWO Instant Pot recipes for meat you can use later in the week for quick Friday night nachos!
And I have my eye on Julia’s Paleo Carrot Cake Blondies. Mmm.
I hope you’re enjoying some warmer spring weather!
INSTANT POT JAMAICAN JERK CHICKEN — This recipe is incredibly easy and fall-off-the-bone delicious! This flavorful spicy chicken recipe is great to make in bulk for meal prep, and the spice level can easily be adapted to your personal taste. ** Also includes oven adaptation.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is Keto. Replace the liquid aminos with coconut aminos to make it paleo or Whole30.
Prep Ahead: Chicken can be marinated up to 24 hours in advance, but marinating is not necessary :)
Substitutions: Serve with choice of side – steamed rice, fried plantains, cauliflower rice, and/or roasted or sauteed veggies are great!
INSTANT POT GREEN CHILE SHREDDED BEEF – This flavorful, quick-prep shredded beef is filled with green chile flavor! Use it to make tacos or salads this week.
Special Diet Note: This recipe is paleo, keto, & Whole30 friendly.
Prep Ahead: You can make this beef up to a week in advance. It also makes a big batch so freeze leftovers for easy taco nights later in the month.
Substitutions: I love to use the jarred 505 Southwestern brand Hatch chiles. If you can’t find them, use 2 4-ounce cans of fire-roasted diced green chiles. You can also substitute a pork shoulder roast for the beef roast if you like.
CRISPY SKILLET SALMON WITH LEMON-DILL CAPER SAUCE – A whole30 paleo keto dinner recipe of salmon with a delicious zesty caper cream sauce.
Special Diet Note: This recipe is paleo, keto, and whole30! Make it Low-FODMAP by omiting the garlic.
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed, as the recipe comes together quickly and is best when served fresh!
Substitutions: Add in some fresh basil, onion, artichoke hearts, and/or sun-dried tomatoes if you’d like. Swap the salmon for your favorite fish – halibut and cod work great too!
CHICKEN & SPINACH CURRY – This easy, Indian-style Chicken Saag is done in just 40 minutes! Filled with warm spices and hearty greens, it’s the perfect nourishing dinner for any weeknight.
Special Diet Note: This recipe is paleo, Keto, & Whole30 friendly.
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed.
Substitutions: Use any sturdy frozen greens in place of the spinach, like kale.
SWEET POTATO HASH — This 4-ingredients recipe is great for a quick dinner, breakfast, or brunch!
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo and whole30.
Prep Ahead: The hash comes together in less than 30 minutes, so no advance prep is needed.
Substitutions: Replace the bacon with breakfast sausage, chorizo, or ham. Add in your favorite veggies, and/or dried or fresh herbs!
PALEO NACHOS WITH VEGAN QUESO — Use some leftover green chile beef or Jamaican jerk chicken from earlier in the week to make some nachos!
This creamy, dairy-free “cheeze” sauce is perfect drizzled over the top! We love using grain-free tortilla chips, too.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo.
Prep Ahead: Use leftover Jamaican Jerk Chicken or Green Chile beef from earlier in the week to make these easy to assemble. Make the vegan queso a few hours ahead of time if you like, but be sure to soak the cashews before you do.
Substitutions: Make some Homemade Sweet Potato Chips or use plantain chips or grain-free tortilla chips for these nachos.
PALEO CARROT CAKE BLONDIES — A simple, yet elegant and delicious dessert that you can prep completely ahead of time! It’s dairy-free and easily made low-carb as well.
Special Diet Note: The recipe is paleo!
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed.
Substitutions: Use any of your favorite nut or seed butters in place of the tahini.
