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.
I’m excited to head into May, soon, but is it just me or is May almost as busy as December?!
Luckily for you, we’ve got some REALLY quick meals. (Like a 5-minute meatless bowl that comes together easily for lunch OR dinner. For as many people as you need to feed!)
Julia’s lighter chopped salad and salmon bowl are calling my name!
Lots of delicious, healthy meals this week, like always. We’d love to hear how you’ve been liking the recipes and the meal plans in general! Any suggestions are welcome, too.
When you make them, post them online and tag us so we can send you some love! @theroastedroot @perrysplate
PALEO THAI GRILLED CHICKEN & “PEANUT” SAUCE — After an easy marinade and a few minutes on the grill, this delicious Thai-inspired grilled chicken begs for a drizzle of “peanut” sauce. (Thai-inspired peanut sauce, but made with almond or any nut butter you like!) Serve with a salad or some grilled vegetables.
Psst… make extra so you have leftovers for easy spring rolls on Thursday!
Special Diet Note: Paleo as is.
Prep Ahead: Marinate the chicken up to 24 hours in advance. You can also make the sauce in advance! Just let it come to room temperature to make it easier to drizzle.
Substitutions: Use keto-friendly sweeteners to make this low-carb. Omit sweeteners or use pineapple juice to make it Whole30 friendly. Be sure to make enough to have leftovers for Thursday’s meal!
30-MINUTE SPRING SALMON BOWLS — These Spring Salmon Bowls with asparagus and peas celebrate spring produce and are a nutritious low-carb meal.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is keto and can be made paleo and whole30 by replacing the peas with a different vegetable, like broccoli or cauliflower.
Prep Ahead: The recipe comes together in 30 minutes or less, so no advance prep is needed!
Substitutions: Omit the peas to make the recipe whole30 and paleo. Add in your favorite veggies, such as leek, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
5-MINUTE CHEEZY ZUCCHETTI BOWL — Talk about a quick meal! This meatless recipe is intended for 1 serving, but you can scale up to serve as many as you need to!
Special Diet Note: Paleo, Whole30, vegan, & keto friendly as is.
Prep Ahead: Spiralize the zucchini ahead of time or buy some pre-noodled!
Substitutions: This recipe is for 1 serving. Scale up the ingredients for however many bowls you need to make.
INSTANT POT PULLED PORK WITH PINEAPPLE — Instant Pot Pulled Pork with Pineapple is a sweet and savory ultra shredded pork recipe that is perfectly tender!
Special Diet Note: Paleo and Whole30.
Prep Ahead: This is a one-pot, set it and forget it adventure, so no advance prep is necessary!
Substitutions: Use broth instead of apple cider if desired.
THAI CHICKEN SPRING ROLLS — Use leftover grilled chicken & peanut sauce from Sunday to put together these rolls even faster!
Special Diet Note: If you’d rather make salad bowls out of this and omit the spring roll wrappers, go ahead. They’d be strict paleo.
Prep Ahead: Use leftover chicken & sauce to make this dinner come togethe quickly!
SESAME TURKEY AVOCADO CHOPPED SALAD — This salad combines delicious fresh vegetables with sliced turkey and an amazing homemade sesame ginger dressing for a crunchy salad that’s loaded with goodies.

PALEO COOKIE DOUGH BITES — Bite-sized bits of paleo-friendly cookie “dough” to snack on during movie night or take on a weekend hike!
Special Diet Note: These are paleo as-is. To make them keto, use a low-carb sweetener and stevia-sweetened mini chocolate chips.
