Quick & Easy Paleo Recipe #1 – Beef Stir-Fry

One of the biggest drawbacks to eating a Paleo Diet in the 21st Century is….TIME.

Cooking Paleo meals takes time.

  • Time to buy fresh Paleo ingredients,
  • Time to prepare those Paleo ingredients, and
  • Time to cook those Paleo ingredients

It’s not like you can call up your local pizza joint and order some sauteed chicken & vegetables.

So… to all of those people who either hate cooking or don’t know how to cook Paleo, I dedicate today’s Quick & Easy Paleo Recipe

    I think this is the sort of thing that is going to help me move from low carb (with some processed foods) to paleo eventually. Thanks for sharing it!

    I have been enjoying your last few posts. I really like this latest one for its simplicit and how it highlights of how Paleo Nutrition can be done on the cheap and on short notice. Only comment worth noting would be to watch sauces (ie. soy sauce) for wheat/soy/gluten/sugar if looking to avoid those things / stay out of problematic foods. I wrote a post on cheap paleo http://www.smartathlete.ca/2011/08/paleo-expensive-dine-at-dollarama-pound.html
