How to eat Paleo for a week…..

The idea Paleo seems a bit baffling at first, and certainly since I announced my dietary change, I have been asked many a time ‘what do you eat?’.

The answer is easy, simple, clean food.

This week, Morrison’s asked me to shop and eat – two of my very favourite things to do in life, and they sent us £80’s worth of vouchers to do the job.  So I thought I would seize the opportunity and give you an insight into how you chow down on a Paleo lifestyle.

£80 goes a long way in Morrison’s, especially with their new cheaper, reduced prices, which are here to stay!  When you are in store, look for the yellow stickers which cry out ‘I’m Cheaper’, and you will know those low prices are here to stay

I went into store with the plan of just buying food for the weekend, but found the money to stretch to almost a full weekly shop.  Which isn’t bad considering I eat only Paleo diet, so only free range, organic meat and absolutely no processed food.

So our Morrisons funded Paleo week looked something like this:

Monday

Roast Chicken with all the trimmings, (the peas aren’t paleo – they were a tiny little cheat!)

Roast Chicken Morrisons

Tuesday

Tuna Nicose

Wednesday

Lemon & Lime Chicken thighs on a bed of roasted pepper and onion.

Thursday

Onion, Mushroom, tomato and sundried tomato three egg omelette.

Friday

Pork Loin steaks, sweet potato, and roasted pepper, mushroom and onion

Thanks to the I’m Cheaper range, we even stocked up on ham and eggs for those breakfast essentials. Our shop also included scrumptious packed lunches for the kids every day and salads for me!

We spent £87 in total, feeding a (hungry) family of five for a week on some lovely nutritious, paleo meals.  Needless to say, we are loving the new everyday prices from Morrison’s.  We still have Gammon for tonight and Fahitas for tomorrow!

    I don’t really know what paleo is, I need to look at your past paleo postings. But the food looks fantastic. Especially the tuna Niçoise salad.
