So many of you were asking me about the meal plan I follow for my paleo diet. So I tried putting together some dishes so that it would be helpful for those who are new to paleo. These dishes are totally vegetable based and doesn’t even include eggs.
For the past two weeks, I have started taking eggs in my diet and for those who also consumes eggs, I will add some recipes later. For now it is just veggies. Eating cauliflower rice daily may be so boring, so you need some variety in your lunch.
I make oven roasted vegetables once in a while when we get bored of cauliflower rice. You can add any paleo veggie in this dish. I try to add mushrooms, carrots, beets, cauliflower, broccoli, eggplant, white pumpkin, bottle gourd and any seasonal vegetable available. Do not use beans of any variety as they are not paleo. This one is quite easy to make and can be put together in 10 minutes. It just needs 45 minutes in oven. You can vary the spice powders you use to vary the flavour of the final dish.

I always serve a raitha with the lunch. Mostly it is onion raitha or cucumber raitha. But this platter is so similar to the raitha but a little bit deconstructed. I had a batch of cream cheese at that time and so I put together this platter. The cream cheese adds to the richness of the dish. For recipe click Cream Cheese Platter or the image.
And finally a soup to bring everything together. At the earlier days of paleo, I used to be so hungry that I could gulp all these things in a go. But nowadays the quantity I take is reduced and I skip the soup in my lunch. But feel free to add it if you are very hungry. Roasting the pumpkin in oven before adding to the soup makes it so flavourful. And have this soup once in a while as this pumpkin should not be consumed regularly.

I hope this will help you a little in planning your paleo meal.
Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or a dietitian. The recipes and ideas I share are the part of vegetarian paleo diet I have been following. I wouldn’t say that this is authentic paleo as paleo consists of meat and very less milk. This one is for those vegetarians who don’t even consume eggs.
