Sharing is caring!

yummy quick and easy paleo dinners

First, Happy Father’s Day! This is Mr. Bejelly’s first Father’s Day so I’m planning on spoiling him with lots of bacon for breakfast, chili verde for lunch and 2 hours of uninterrupted gaming time on his xbox 360.

Finally,  Summer has decided to grace us here in the Pacific Northwest and I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This week’s recipe roundup focuses on quick and easy paleo dinners so I can spend the maximum amount of time soaking up the sunshine and remembering why I choose to live in the eternally soggy land known as Portland.

    Jake went to Famous Dave’s today and wanted to order catfish, but they took it off the menu.

      Oh, I hate when a restaurant changes the menu and removes the one thing you love!

    How difficult was it for you to transition to this diet?

    1. Bejelly June 17, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      I removed all grains except for sourdough for a few weeks because I felt terrible and the sourdough was enough to give my body the carbs I was used to. You body essentially goes from using carbs as fuel to using fat. It wasn’t hard because I was suffering from pre-diabetes, anxiety and depression. These cleared up immediately after I went on the diet so it was worth it to me to be strict on it.

        So … no grains at all? Hmmmmm…. gonna have to think about this. I know it would be good for me (PCOS) but just not sure about the committment to changing over.

    Wonderful ideas! My mom would LOVE the catfish fingers.

    Thank you for the link love! I hope everyone enjoys the chicken fries recipe 😀

      You’re welcome. I was excited to find a recipe that uses sesame flour since I have a nut allergy 🙂

    Spaghetti Squash with garlic and bacon looks amazing! I may have to add this to my meal plan this week!!

    I didn’t realize bacon could be included. Could you send me recipes? I am starting it tomorrow for my ROTC training and this would go great with my workouts. Plus I want to be healthier. Thanks much 😀
