Paleo Lunch Ideas to Keep You Satisfied

Paleo Lunch Planning


Planning your Paleo lunches keeps your subconscious looking forward to your next meal ideas. If you try to start a Paleo diet by ‘winging it’ or purchasing Paleo-friendly foods as you go without forethought, you run the risk of spending too much money while finding yourself in a hurry to finish off food before it expires, which wastes even more money.


Your daily Paleo meals, snacks, and drink choices don’t have to be boring, with proper planning and great meal ideas, you can eat healthy while feeling full and staying satisfied. In this article, we discuss 3 satisfying Paleo Lunch recipes that are great food options to complement your Paleo Diet meal and snack choices



These gluten-free Paleo Kingfish Skewers make a light, flavorful, and satisfying meal idea.


Total Preparation Time: 35 Minutes 

Serving Size: 4 Servings





    • 1/4 cup (60ml) lemon juice
    • 5-6 parsley sprigs, leaves roughly chopped 
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes 
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons of your preferred oil 
    • 800g skinless kingfish filets, pin boned, cut into 3cm cubes
    • 3 long red chilies 
    • 3 long green chilies 
    • 250g vine-ripened cherry tomatoes 

Kingfish Skewers Preparation




Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes. Combine juice, parsley, dried chili, 2 teaspoons oil, and fish in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes, then thread onto skewers.




Meanwhile, toss chilies and tomatoes in the remaining olive oil. Heat an oiled chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. When hot, cook chilies for 10 minutes, turning to blacken. The skin should pop and crack open. Cut open each chili down one side and remove seeds (unless you like it spicy).




Add the kingfish skewers to the char grill or barbecue and cook for 6-8 minutes, turning once, or until just cooked. Add the tomatoes and cook for the final 5 minutes, or until softened and lightly charred.


Serve 2 skewers per person with chargrilled tomatoes and chilies.
