7 Day Paleo Meal Plan 


Ever wondered how a whole week of eating paleo would feel like? The following are a few recipes to make healthy meals and a diet plan for you if you want to introduce paleo to your dining plate.

A paleo diet will also save time and lots of money if you decide eating leftovers for lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday followed by a leftover soup for Friday's brunch.

However, Paleo isn’t just a one-size-fits-all diet. It's only a starting point, and you can experiment further from there on to see what fits best for you. It is not advisable to overreact if something you consume isn’t arguably Paleo — just see how you go after you eat it, and adapt accordingly.

Cheap Paleo Meals For The Week

This is a 7-day Paleo diet plan that we have thought to be the best suited for starters and pros:

Monday

  • Breakfast

Early morning breakfast shall include either eggs and fruit or grapefruit and avocado, to make the combo a little weird, you can
always drizzle olive oil and sea salt.

  • Lunch

a frozen leftover Chelo Kebab is ideal, or a leftover Beef Stew, added with cucumbers and fruit which can be followed by a tahini molasses cookie for dessert. 

  • Dinner 

which must include Roasted Butternut Squash, Roasted
Chicken, served with warm Leeks in Vinaigrette followed by homemade sauerkraut (Always shred the leftover chicken after dinner
to use in another meal, and put all the bones from the freezer into the stock pot so that you can make bone broth with.)

Tuesday

  • Breakfast

Again, include Eggs in breakfast along with sautéed onions sprinkled with mint-liked thyme, and fruit.

  • Lunch

A tuna salad and veggie crackers are ideal for second day lunch, and if you have the leftover chicken soup, all the better to finish it right away.

  • Dinner

Reheat-the Kalua-Pig from last week, in a-covered-pot until warmed through, or better fry it-in a skillet to get crunchy pork goodness. Wash and spin-dry lettuce and set out your family’s favorite taco accoutrements: jalapeno peppers, guacamole, salsa, sliced radishes, all-while the-pork is-reheating. Now, call the troops to the table assemble everyone their own tacos by using the lettuce as taco wraps.

Before you clean up, prep the ingredients for Asian Cauliflower Fried rice and put it all into the refrigerator. Just a new raw stock for tomorrow’s meal, or day after tomorrow, or a week later, whatever!

Wednesday

  • Breakfast

Start with a Shakshukah, without the cheese in the recipe, and skipping the eggplant only by using zucchini. Quite a breakfast, you see! 

  • Lunch

Tuna Salad return for lunch, this time made with celery, lemon juice, , green olives, olive oil and chopped sun dried tomatoes. Eat this with cucumber slices and carrot sticks, followed by apples.

  • Dinner

This is by far the simplest of the dinner menu we can recommend for a mid-week supper: Chicken and Vegetable Soup. Well, that’s it then.

Thursday

  • Breakfast

Okay, we are at mid-way. Start your day with Scrambled Eggs and Pumpkin Muffins.

If you can, skip lunch, as you may often do on the weekdays. Have some homemade pastrami followed by apples as a snack. You can consider this as late-breakfast; handle the nomenclature for this time.

  • Dinner

Dinner will be obviously early as you have literally skipped lunch. Since you have starved a bit today, lets help you in making a simple dinner. Shrimp and Walnut Stir-Fry:

  1. Heat the oil in a big skillet over a medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of the oil, followed by the green onions and wait for a minute; thereafter add the garlic, stir properly, and add the Shrimp.
  2. Cook until the shrimp starts turning into pink in color and add coconut aminos with honey.
  3. Stir and then remove shrimp from the pan. Add walnuts and cook for nearly 2 minutes, until they are toasted. Now, remove from pan.
  4. Add remaining oil & cauliflower to the pan and stir again. Cook this for about 5 minutes, until it is softened.
  5. Lastly, add the shrimp and walnuts back into the pan and cook the mixture until heated through.
  6. Serve topped with more additional green onions.

Friday

  • Breakfast

Now, after an almost starving and exhausting previous day, get a few Leftover Pumpkin Muffins and Scrambled Eggs that you have preserved the last time you had.

  • Lunch

It is a no-brainer that the lunch will also include leftovers as well. This time, try Oxtail with extra greens accompanied by Cauliflower Rice.

  • Dinner

For dinner, Italian Meatballs will be a decent choice to go for, with Tomato Sauce and Zucchini Noodles. Not much after that, though! No dessert involved this time.

Saturday

  • Breakfast

Grain-free Dutch Baby and some fresh vegetable juice in the morning is quite ideal, followed by dark chocolate and almonds!

  • Lunch

Leftover meatballs accompanied by marinara dipping sauce, cucumber slices and olives are an excellent choice for Lunch. You can also consider Green salad with sunflower seeds, red peppers, tahini dressing and tuna.

  • Dinner

A well made Moroccan Beef Stew accompanied
by Cauliflower Rice and homemade sauerkraut is again an excellent
choice for dinner.

Sunday

  • Breakfast

Now, we are on the last day of our cheap Paleo diet for the week. Start with eggs and sautéed onions, somewhat sprinkled with thyme, and a fresh Fruit.

  • Lunch

Include a tuna salad and veggie crackers, if you haven’t choose this the
last night. Else, a leftover chicken soup would be ideal for lunch on a Sunday afternoon.

  • Dinner

For dinner, let’s discuss the recipe of Italian Meatballs and Braised Greens:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Create a raw mixture of the beef, garlic, onion, paprika, almond flour, and salt in a huge bowl. Use your hands to mix until just combined, being careful not to mix thoroughly.
  3. Form it into 2-inch meatballs and lay them on a baking sheet.
  4. Brush with olive oil and coat it with the Italian seasoning. Bake it for about 20-30 minutes, until cooked through.
  5. To make the braised greens, cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet until it starts changes it color to brown. Add the greens thereafter and stir to coat in the fat. Add the water to cover the greens and turn the pan down to low. Let them simmer for
    about 10 minutes on a low heat until greens are tender.
  6. Thereafter, serve the meatballs over the greens.

At the end of the day, and the week we can say in all solemnity, that Paleo isn’t about having the same foods that our knuckle-dragging ancestors speared and scorch over a fire pit.

This diet isn’t about historical breeding. Most modern times Paleo followers simply prefer eating and cooking unprocessed, whole, nutrient-dense foods like grass-fed, fruits, vegetables, and pastured meats and eggs, along with wild-caught seafood.
