22 Easy Paleo Recipes for Weight Loss – Paleo Dinner for Every Weeknight!

Anastasia Blogger DIY 2 Comments

Today’s blog is going to be a bit of a history lesson. A Paleo meal plan is a lifestyle wherein you eat the food that our ancestors used to eat decades before civilization started. Aside from it being historically captivating, Paleo meals are also an excellent diet for people who are weight conscious. More importantly, it makes for a really delicious meal. In this post, I am going to share with you some Paleo dinner recipes that I know you’ll be excited to try out. 

Paleo Dinner Recipes With Chicken

I love chicken! If you ask me any meal that involves a chicken would be really fantastic. But that’s not the reason I am sharing this with you. 

This was actually the first paleo meal I’ve tasted. The idea came from a friend of mine. She gave a couple of paleo dinner recipes with chicken

And I want to share with you some of my favorite ones. 

  • Chicken Fajitas

This meal would usually have tortillas in it. But instead of that, you could add in some paleo-approved steak. 

  • Garlicky Greek Chicken

I’m not really a fan of garlic but it’s amazing how a couple of garlic has added a unique taste to this Greek chicken meal. 

  • Grilled Honey-Lime Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

I love serving these to guests. What’s great is that you could tell a little back story about paleo meals as your guests munch on these goodies. 

They’re perfect for any meal of the day. What’s more, is that you could eat them as you go if you ever find yourself in a jam. 

  • Primavera Stuffed Chicken

This meal is pretty unique. I don’t think a lot of people know about this recipe. It’s great for people like me who love to explore food.

Paleo Dinner Recipes With Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is really interesting. I don’t find a lot of coconut milk-based food here in Portugal but I do know of one place where it seems to be pretty popular – the Philippines. 

So when I heard of paleo meals being mixed with coconut milk, it really got my attention. I just wanted to taste and it was awesome! And I just have to share some of the paleo dinner recipes with coconut milk that stole my heart. 

  • Tropical Green Smoothie

I know! It didn’t sound like a paleo drink to me. I mean how did people make smoothies back in the time without blenders? I guess we’ll never know but what I do know is that this smoothie is worth a try even though it’s packed a lot of greens. You get to add in some spinach, kale, chia seeds, and most especially coconut milk. 

  • Roasted Acorn Squash and Apple Soup

The coconut milk itself makes this soup really creamy even without the use of dairy products. Add in some celery, apples, and ginger to keep it refreshing. 

  • Paleo Baked Pears

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this dessert. It’s made with ripe pears, coconut milk yogurt, chopped nuts, coconut sugar, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla bean paste. It’s a bit gooey and all but will really make your taste buds sing. 

Easy Paleo Dinners for a Week

If you are a working adult or a college student living alone in your apartment, it might be a great idea to consider making dinners for one whole week. 

Think about it. You get to eat your dinner as soon as you get home so you have more time to get some rest or do homework. 

Here are some ideas for easy paleo dinners for a week:

  • One-Pan Healthy Italian Sausage and Veggies

It’s packed with a lot of green but it still makes for an awesome dinner. You can basically add in any vegetable and sausage that you want. Some people prefer to eat it as is but as for me, I usually add in some cauliflower rice to go with it. 

  • Crispy One-Pan Bacon-Wrapped Chicken

If you’re someone who really loves meat, you best save this dinner for your busiest days. It’s as scrumptious as it looks. I can tell you that. 

  • Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Some people have some sort of allergy to any food that comes with the term “salad”. And if you’re one of those people, fear not. This salad is packed with all the goodies you could ever want in your meal. At the same time, it still counts as a healthy meal. 

Paleo Meal Prep Ideas for Weight Loss

I think this is the section we have all been waiting for. After all, the main reason we’re all looking at these paleo recipes is weight loss. 

So, here are some paleo meal prep ideas for weight loss that you guys might find handy. 

  • Turkey Meatballs with Apple Herbs

I fell in love with this meal just reading the name. The turkey meatballs were most definitely scrumptious. It tasted like a meal for the gods. At the same time, it isn’t fatty compared to other meats. 

  • Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry

It is a combination of the chicken that we all love so much plus a couple of vegetables like cabbages to even out the nutrients table. 

  • Paleo Pizza Soup

The moment we hear the word “pizza”, we’re all ears. But sorry to say, you won’t be eating any pizza. But not to worry because the soup tastes like pizza all the same. And no, you won’t get fat because there are zero carbs in this meal.

  • Lemon Rosemary Chicken

I saved this for last but I know this could be your favorite recipe in this section of this blog. Who doesn’t love Rosemary chicken? I’ve started eating Rosemary chicken even before I heard about paleo meals. Who knew our ancestors loved this as well?

Well, there you have it. But we’re not done yet. I’ve only shared with you some of the best paleo dinner recipes people have taught me over the years. You’ve yet to hear about the recipes that I made myself. Keep on reading to know about them.

I bet you heard the word Paleo too many times in the last few years. Maybe you even tried paleo recipes, created for so called caveman diet.

The idea of Paleo is that modern people get their bodies polluted by food which was not available to our Stone Age ancestors.

The good thing about Paleo diet is that you can eat a huge variety of food – meat, fish, nuts, regional vegetables, seeds.

Everything that was invented in the recent centuries, such as candies, cereal, pasta are no good for Paleo recipes.

I know that it’s not easy for a modern person to identify every type of food which shouldn’t be used in your Paleo diet. This is why I recommend you to start with this list of most popular Paleo recipes – good for beginners and so tasty!
