I know that so many of us struggle with what to eat – and it’s a back and forth game almost most of the time. Beans or no beans. Gluten-free or whole grains – or both. Paleo or Vegetarian? Well I’m glad that you can choose what works for you – and not even the Paleo groups are starting to share how to live Paleo with a vegetarian diet. One of the best starter cookbooks out there is ‘The Vegetarian Paleo Recipe Book which is a great little ebook I found on Amazon.
The reviews say:
“great cookbook. Tasty, unusual, creative and easy“
- Grace Darby
“I’ve downloaded quite a few cookbooks lately and this probably the best one I’ve found for my situation“
“perfect answer to no gluten recipes“
“wonderful vegetarian recipes good for us all“
- Marg Rutan
“good food even if you’re not a vegetarian“
- Sandy Bose
The Vegetarian Paleo Recipe Cookbook features 47 simple and tasty meals free from gluten, grains, dairy, soy and refined sugar starting with breakfast to lunch, dinner and dessert all are very important to me and being clean and free of soy is also very important to me.
Another great start would be to take the Whole30 Program from the Whole9 Group.
Here are a few Paleo vegetarian meal ideas to get you started on your Paleo journey that I found somewhere when I was looking for vegetarian options.
Wilted spinach surprise – Place a tablespoon of natural oil in a skillet. Sautee a 1/4 cup of sweet onions and sweet red peppers. Add ¼ cup of chopped walnuts, ½ cup of chopped apples. Heat for three minutes. Add a large amount of fresh spinach leaves with a small amount of natural oil. Inlcude any spices you desire. Allow the heat and the steam to wilt the spinach down. Stir and serve very hot.
Lettuce wrap fajitas – Cook a wide variety of peppers and onions in a skillet with a small amount of oil. You can have green peppers, red peppers, jalapenos, yellow, and orange peppers. Add garlic, cumin and chili powder for more flavor. When peppers are to your liking (shorter amount of time peppers will be crisper, longer amount of time they will be sweeter and soft), place a spoonful of peppers in your favorite lettuce leaves, roll up and enjoy!
