The paleo diet is a way of eating that harkens back to our ancestors. While we’re not eating exactly what our ancestors ate thousands of years ago, the premise is to eat a diet composed of real, whole foods. Food as nature intended it to be – before farming came into the picture.

Why You Should Meal Plan the Paleo Way

When following the paleo diet, there is no calorie counting required. There is no need to track your carb intake. There’s no weighing or measuring your food. All you have to do is stick to paleo-friendly foods. If it’s paleo, you can eat it. It’s a really great opportunity to tune back into your body – eat when you feel hungry and stop when you feel satisfied. Skip the junk and focus on foods that support your health.

Paleo foods are those that are inherently nourishing to your body. In a very basic sense, a well-balanced paleo diet includes eating high-quality protein, vegetables, starches, fruit, nuts, seeds and healthy fats. If it sounds simple, it’s because it is! You can eat any amount and combination of these foods that you see fit for your own body and lifestyle.

The foods that aren’t paleo-friendly are foods that have been commonly known to cause health issues or be irritating to the skin, gut or overall health. This includes dairy, gluten, sugar, legumes, unhealthy fats, processed foods. You know the foods that make up the standard American diet…the candy, soda, junk food, fast food, alcohol, etc. Those are the ones that you want to avoid.

Why You Need a Plan for your Paleo Diet

One of the hardest things to do when trying out a new diet is sticking to it. It can be confusing to both learn about the new parameters of a diet and what is allowed and not allowed – all while learning to cook new foods.

Meal plans help take the guesswork out of transitioning to a new diet and way of life and makes it easy for you to stick to the diet – instead of always wondering if you’re sticking to it or not.

A meal plan gives you a plan, a schedule, recipes, and a shopping list to start the week – so you don’t have to do the leg work during the week – increasing the likelihood that you’ll stick to your diet.

Of course, you can learn to meal plan on your own, or you can use a tool like ours to help make it as easy as possible.

What To Eat on a Paleo Meal Plan

The most important thing when eating paleo is that – you actually eat paleo. Sometimes called the caveman diet – the easy way to filter this in your mind is to ask yourself “could a caveman eat it?” If os, you’re probably in the clear.

Foods you can eat on a Paleo plan

If you’re going to eat according to a paleo template – you should mainly focus on the following foods:

  • High-quality protein
  • Fish
  • Seafood
  • Eggs
  • Vegetables
  • Some fruit
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Natural oils

Foods to avoid on a Paleo plan

Meanwhile, you’ll want to avoid the following foods:

  • Grains
  • Dairy
  • Legumes
  • Sugar
  • Processed foods
  • Alcohol

Frequently Asked Questions about Paleo Meal Plans

As the #1 meal planner app on the internet, we plan thousands of weekly meal plans every week and we get a lot of questions. Here are some of the most common paleo questions we get:

Is paleo unhealthy?

No! This is a common question, but fortunately the paleo diet is actually quite healthy! Like any diet – you can take it to the extremes and it can become unhealthy, but by and large – paleo can help you get back in touch with eating real, whole, nutritious food.

What is a typical paleo meal?

While every meal is different, a typical paleo meal contains a high quality protein, some vegetables, and a little bit of low glycemic fruit (berries) on the side.

Can you lose weight eating paleo?

Yes, most people choose paleo to lose weight. The great thing about the paleo diet is that it helps you focus on eating real foods – which are more satiating than highly processed foods stuffed with sugars. 

Can you drink coffee on paleo?

Yes, fortunately coffee is very paleo and you can still get your caffeine fix while eating like a caveman.

Can you eat rice, potatoes, or (this food) on paleo? 

Rice is generally considered not paleo, but okay in small amounts. Same with potatoes. If you’d like a definitive list of foods that are or are not paleo, check out this list or download the app for iOS and Android
