An Example of a Daily Paleo Meal Plan

Paleo Lunch Planning


Planning your Paleo lunches in advance 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, snack 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

KINGFISH SKEWERS WITH CHARGRILLED TOMATOES AND CHILLIES


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


Total Preparation Time: 35 Minutes 

Serving Size: 4 Servings


KINGFISH SKEWER RECIPE INGREDIENTS


    • 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, pinboned, cut into 3cm cubes
    • 3 long red chilies 
    • 3 long green chilies 
    • 250g vine-ripened cherry tomatoes 

Kingfish Skewers Preparation


STEP 1


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.


STEP 2


Meanwhile, toss chillies and tomatoes in remaining olive oil. Heat an oiled char grill or barbecue over medium-high heat. When hot, cook chillies 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 really spicy).


STEP 3


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 chillies.
