Now that you have a grasp on the paleo way of eating basics, here are five recipes that are quick and easy to add to your new cooking repertoire.

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients:

1 pound ground turkey
1 medium zucchini (chopped)
1/2 of a large onion (chopped)
1/2 of large bell pepper, yellow (chopped)
1/2 of large bell pepper, red (chopped)
4 large bell peppers, green (tops & seeds removed)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon tomato paste
14.5 ounces diced tomatoes – 1 can (drained)
garlic, to taste
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Directions:

While oven is preheating to 350 degrees, wrap each of the green bell peppers in aluminum foil. Place is an oven safe baking dish. Once oven is preheated, place the baking dish inside and bake peppers for 15 minutes.

While the green bell peppers are baking, in a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the ground turkey until browned.  Once done, set aside. In another skillet over medium heat, pour the oil and let it heat up until a splash of water sizzles when dropped in. Now add the zucchini, onion, yellow and red bell peppers and cook until tender. Add the ground turkey and mix in the drained can of tomatoes and tomato paste. Season to taste with garlic, salt, and pepper. Stuff the green bell peppers with this mixture.

Place the stuffed peppers back in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

Deviled Eggs with Guacamole

Ingredients:

6 hard boiled eggs
1 avocado
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon jalapeno – optional
fresh chopped cilantro – optional
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Directions:

Once the eggs are boiled and cooled, peel them. Cut in half lengthwise, remove the yolks and put in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Mash the avocado, yolks, lime juice and if used the jalapeno & cilantro, together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Scoop the mixture into the egg halves. Garnish with paprika if you like.

Pancakes
this will make enough for 1 person. If feeding more than one, you’ll need to use more ingredients – simply double or even triple them.

Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1 large ripe banana
pinch of cinnamon (or to taste)

Directions:

In a medium sized mixing bowl, mash the banana until all the chunks are gone. Add the eggs and whisk together. Now add the cinnamon and whisk until mixed well.

Turn your stove on medium and while it’s heating up, coat your frying pan with butter.

Pour some batter into your frying pan and heat on each side for 2-3 minutes or until brown. (Note: these pancakes are a lot thinner than a regular pancake so use less batter for each pancake)

Eggs with Veggies

In a rush in the a.m.? This is a simple Paleo recipe that only takes a few minutes.

Ingredients:

Eggs
Vegetables of choice (mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, avocado, etc.)

Directions:

Scramble the eggs with cut up vegetables until done.

Fruit Smoothie

Throwing a fruit smoothie together is a simple Paleo friendly snack or breakfast item. Grab a handful of your favorite fruit(s), throw in a blender with some almond milk and blend until smooth. You could even add some nuts if you want.

To conclude this section, there’s one last thing to mention. In every meal – breakfast, lunch, and dinner – try to include protein, fruit and vegetables.
