Budget-Friendly Paleo Meal Ideas

My Top 10 Favorite Budget-Friendly Paleo Meals

  • America’s Test Kitchen Taco Meat Recipe – We make the taco meat in batches which we use to make taco bowls for lunch and dinner.
  • Meat + Sweet Potato + Broccoli – Grill the meat, bake the sweet potatoes, and steam the broccoli. No recipe needed.
  • Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Milk – Fantastic combination of flavors. Surprised at how good this is.
  • Marcella Hazen Roast Chicken w/ Lemons  – Another staple from one of my favorite cookbooks Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking
  • Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie – A good meal to make ahead for a small crowd.
  • Braised Chicken Thighs with Veggies – Chicken thighs are often the cheapest part of the chicken. We usually end up just braising chicken thighs with whatever veggies we have, similar to this recipe.
  • Homemade Ice Cream – Since dairy, nut-free desserts are hard to come by, we make our own ice cream.  I mess around with different combos but this recipe is similar to the base I use. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, a good workaround is to blend the ingredients,  pour in ice cube trays, then remove and blend again once frozen.
  • Beef Stir Fry – Here we’re just browning meat and adding whatever veggies we have on hand (broccoli, bell peppers, onions, garlic, and bok choy), some herbs we grow in the garden (basil, cilantro) then adding some coconut aminos.
