Ok, so you’ve read the post about How to Get Perfect Figure Paleo Diet Food List, consulted your doctor and decided you want to give Paleo diet a try.

I strongly suggest that you try all of these recipes as well as to include your imagination and come up with your own recipes. It’s really not that hard, just stick to the list of foods you’re allowed to eat, and I’m sure something will pop up.

1. Paleo Frittata

This is a perfect breakfast idea for all those sticking to Paleo diet. However, have in mind that the diet restricts you to a maximum of 6 eggs a week, so you can’t really have a lot of this. The recipe that follows is suitable for 4 servings.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 pack of frozen artichoke or the same amount of any other frozen vegetables, except starchy ones.


  1. Whisk the eggs.
  2. Coat the pan you’ll be cooking in, with a thin layer of olive oil.
  3. Chop the artichoke or any other vegetables you’re using.
  4. Put the vegetables in the pan and fry for several minutes.
  5. Add whisked eggs.
  6. Put in the oven and bake until golden brown.
  7. Serve warm.

2. Vegetable Soup

When I was a kid, I was taught that every good meal starts with a soup. Now, this is not your mama’s homemade chicken soup, but I have to tell you that it is pretty delicious. And of course, it is Paleo diet friendly. The recipe is sufficient for two servings.


  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 big carrots, sliced
  • 1 big zucchini, sliced
  • 2 tsp of fresh parsley, chopped
  • pinch of thyme
  • pinch of pepper
  • 2 cups of water


  1. Put the chopped onion in a sauce pan on a stove, and cook until softened.
  2. Add carrots and zucchinis, and cover.
  3. Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened.
  4. Add water and bring to boil.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Add parsley, thyme and pepper.
  7. Take a hand blender and make cream soup.
  8. Serve hot.

3. Spicy Grilled Chicken

Spicy Grilled Chicken

This is your usual grilled chicken with a slight twist. I assure you that you are going to love it.


  • 1 serving of boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of picante, or any other hot sauce of your choice, (keep in mind the food list, don’t allow the sauce to contain anything that’s not on it)
  • some lemon juice


  1. Mix the hot sauce with lemon juice and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours.
  2. Preheat your grill.
  3. Put the meat on the grill.
  4. Coat with marinade on one side.
  5. Turn over and coat with marinade on the other side.
  6. Grill until done.
  7. Serve hot, with fresh vegetables salad.

4. Rosemary Pork

Here comes one that is a bit harder to make. Make sure that you choose very lean pork chops, and remove all visible fat from them. The recipe is suitable for 4 servings.


  • 4 lean pork chops
  • 4 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of fresh chopped, or dried, crushed rosemary
  • a pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Mix the olive oil with the rosemary.
  2. Marinate the pork chops for at least one hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat your grill.
  4. Grill the pork chops on each side for a couple of minutes (depends on how thick the chops are).
  5. Serve with a big bowl of lettuce seasoned with lemon juice and a handful of sunflower seeds.

5. Go Nuts!

The dessert is maybe the hardest part of the Paleo diet recipes. You are pretty much not allowed to eat anything sweet, except dried fruits and nuts. Well, I have to tell you that you can make some pretty good dessert with this. Have in mind that you must not exceed 4 oz of nuts and 2 oz of dried fruits a day.


  • 4 oz of different nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, unsalted pistachios, macadamia nuts…)
  • 2 oz of dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, dried apricots, prunes and dates)
  • juice from 1 orange
  • orange wedges


  1. Toast the nuts on a non-stick pan (NO OIL!) or in the oven.
  2. Chop the dried fruit.
  3. Combine the nuts and the dried fruit and sprinkle them with orange juice.
  4. Leave in the refrigerator for at least half an hour until the nuts and the dried fruits soak up the orange juice.
  5. Cut 1 orange into wedges.
  6. Mix with dried fruit, and nuts mixture.
  7. See how fast you can eat it.

It sounds a lot harder that it really is, right? Now that you have these recipes as a guide, I’m sure that you can come up with many more fantastic Paleo diet recipes. Give yourself a chance to have the figure you’ve always wanted. The Paleo diet recognizes allowed food, food you can eat moderately and food you should avoid. For best results, try to get your hands on organic food.
