Step by Step Paleo

Some folks in my hiking group were asking about my Paleo dishes so I decided to do a step by step on a couple of meals to show how fast and easy it is to eat nutritious and delicious food.

Here's my standard base....

Spring Mix
Carrot sticks
Sweet Onion
Drizzle this with Balsamic and Olive Oil and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings.... in my case, it's S&P and a combination of Hot Madras Curry Powder, Cumin and Turmeric and TJ's 21 Season Salute
Then add your favorite fruit - Here it's raspberries and red seedless grapes.

Meanwhile.... back at the Cast Iron Skillet, there's a heaping helping of my Ground Turkey Breast Mix for protein.

And my new favorite ready made chicken breast....

Add that to the skillet with some additional seasoning, flip the turkey pattie.... 

And Presto.... couple with a Stockyard Oatmeal Stout...

And Dig In.

All the way from Lake Jackson Tx.... for the 2nd time....the Red Mule....

On a commute to / from Anytime Fitness.

Here's the layout for one of  my all in one skillet Paleo favorites.

Kale, Green Bell Pepper,Sweet Onion, Carrot Sticks, Eggs, Baked Sweet Potato, Fresh Basil, the last of the Ground Beef Mix and some more of the TJ's Roast Chicken Breast.

Heat the cast iron skillet.

Start the assembly line by prep'g the "Hard" veggies - Pepper, Onion and Carrots.

Remember to season each entry to the skillet.

Give the hard veggies a few turns and 3 minutes in the skillet, then add the kale.

Next is the chicken, a link of TJ's Jalapeno Chicken Sausage, the sweet potato, tomato and basil with the beaten seasoned eggs on standby.

In goes round 3.

Toss, Turn and Cook for another 3 minutes.

Then reduce heat and pour in the eggs.

Turn the pile a couple of times till the eggs are cooked and....

Bam! You have a skillet full of Paleo goodness.

Plate with some fresh strawberries for a little sweetness and you're good to go.

Add some salad and a Protein Drink with the leftovers.

See how easy that is.

Eat like this and you will look and feel great!

  1. This look absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i'll have to try this myself sometime soon!

    The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. It's the only diet I've come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone's need to eat great food.

    I'm a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I've written about one of my favourite cookbooks:
