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’ve got a great meal plan for you today!
If you’ve never tried my Jerk Chicken & Mango Bowls, you’re in for a treat! I love the way the spicy (ish — it’s really not that spicy) seasoning plays off the sweet mangoes and tangy lime vinaigrette.
Julia’s Baked Salmon Burgers use a method I haven’t tried before — putting chunks of uncooked salmon in a food processor to make “ground” meat. Definitely adding that to my list.
And we always give you a treat — this week are my Pink Drink Popsicles! They’re a popsicle form of Starbuck’s famous Pink Drink made with passion tea and frozen strawberries. I thought these would be a mom & dad only sort of treat, but my kids LOVED them. And consequently ate most of them. Sigh.
Should be a tasty week. Enjoy the sun!
GRILLED JERK CHICKEN & MANGO BOWLS — Just a quick rub with some jerk seasoning turns regular grilled chicken into amazeballs grilled jerk chicken! I love the kick of heat with sweet mangoes and the lime vinaigrette.
Special Diet Note: Recipe paleo, Whole30 friendly, and low carb (without the plantain chips).
Prep Ahead: You can marinate the chicken a day or two in advance and prep the dressing a day ahead.
Substitutions: Use another spicy, flavorful seasoning in place of the jerk seasoning. You can also use fish here instead of chicken — just marinated it up to 4 hours in advance.
MEDITERRANEAN SHRIMP SKILLET — Quick and easy Mediterranean Shrimp made in a skillet with just 8 fresh, basic ingredients.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo, keto, and whole30.
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed – the recipe comes together in less than 40 minutes!
Substitutions: Enjoy the dish as is, or serve it up with your choice of cauliflower rice or roasted or sautéed vegetables.
EGG ROLL IN A BOWL WITH SRIRACHA MAYO — Egg Roll in a Bowl is a healthy take on classic Chinese egg rolls without the fried exterior! Spiced ground beef sauteed with loads of fresh veggies are topped with my favorite condiment of all time — 3 ingredient sriracha mayo.
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo. For Whole30, check the ingredients on the sriracha and fish sauce.
Prep Ahead: Cabbage can be shredded ahead of time.
Substitutions: Use any ground meat you like in this! Substitute the broccoli slaw for some shredded Brussels sprouts or carrots, if you like, too.
ZUCCHINI AND GROUND TURKEY SKILLET — Zucchini and ground turkey skillet with ginger, green onion, baby spinach, coconut aminos and dried herbs adds up to a super clean dinner recipe that comes together in less than 30 minutes!
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo, keto, and whole30! Serve it up as is or enjoy with your favorite side dishes. I always go with an extra side of sauteed veggies or a salad.
Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed – this recipe comes together lightning fast!
Substitutions: Use ground beef or chicken instead of turkey. If you do soy, you can replace the coconut aminos with liquid aminos or regular soy sauce. Mix up the dried herbs depending on what you have on hand!
ASPARAGUS & GRILLED MELON SALAD — Have you ever grilled melon? It intensifies and caramelizes the natural sugars and adds a little smokiness. It’s divine. I love it in this salad with a punch of heat from the chile paste
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo — use grass-fed butter if possible. It’s also vegetarian.
Prep Ahead: Cut the melon and tomatoes ahead of time.
Substitutions: Feel free to add some tuna or leftover protein from earlier in the week.
BAKED SALMON BURGERS — Easy baked salmon burgers made with sockeye salmon. Prepare this simple, healthful recipe using fresh salmon in your food processor!
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo, keto, and whole30! Be sure to pick up your favorite burger toppings, such as butter lettuce for lettuce buns (or buns of choice), avocado, tomato, red onion, etc.
Prep Ahead: The burgers come together quickly and are best when served fresh out of the oven – no need to prepare anything in advance :)
Substitutions: Serve the burgers with any additional side dishes. Crispy Sweet Potato Fries are my preference!
PINK DRINK POPSICLES — These fruity summer popsicles made with hibiscus tea & strawberries are inspired by the famous Starbucks Pink Drink!
Special Diet Note: Recipe is paleo friendly. Use a low-carb sweetener to make it low-carb/keto friendly.
Prep Ahead: Since these are frozen you can make them far ahead of time.
Substitutions: Try using different kinds of tea or frozen fruit to change it up!
