Recipe: Pancakes for a Paleo Meal Plan



           Breakfast: One of the most coveted breakfast items is pancakes. Here is a recipe to remake your favorite childhood breakfast without all the processed flour. There are many pancake recipes online and you can easily tailor it to make your flapjacks to your liking.

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp of almond flour (you can also substitute natural almond butter)
  • dash of cinnamon


Simply mash the banana prior to mixing the rest of your ingredients. Cook them in a pan as you would for regular pancakes and when they’re done top them with your favorite fruit toppings or even natural peanut butter!


Lunch: Keep it simple by putting a twist on a classic sandwich. Swapping the bread for romaine lettuce heads and mayonnaise for avocado will add more flavor and crunch to your next mid-day meal.

  • 2-3 washed romaine heads
  • onion slices
  • tomato slices
  • one-half sliced avocado
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional protein that isn’t processed deli meat (i.e. grilled chicken)


Customize your lettuce wrap by adding or swapping out certain veggies. If you don’t include protein in your wrap you may want to snack on some nuts to make up for that.


Stir Fry for a Healthy Meal



Dinner: Making dinner at home is the easiest way to make sure you are eating whole foods and ingredients, not manufactured products. Whip up a quick Asian stir fry with brown rice to finish your day of healthy eating.


  • Brown rice (or “Paleo Rice”)
  • Seared tuna or whole protein of your choice
  • Onion
  • Red peppers
  • Yellow peppers
  • Orange peppers
  • Sliced carrots
  • Sesame oil for cooking


Dice up your veggies and cook all together in a pan, sear your tuna separately, serve together in a bowl on a bed of brown rice.


Use these recipes as guidelines for simple, whole ingredient meals that you can customize to fit your taste or meal plan.

  1. There are tons of plans and diet charts available that focus on cheap healthy meals. Before proceeding any further, it is essential to know that daily nutritional requirement needs differ largely for men from women. A balanced diet is required for good health but there are certain difference in the composition for different sexes.

    1. That certainly is true, and was beyond the narrow scope of this blog. With that said, basic nutrition is not gender-based; also, we do not promote any specific special diet. We are very aware that many of our readers are on specialized diets and we hope to encourage them to continue trying new things! We hope that you found something that appealed to you in this blog.

  2. One of the major hurdles faced by a busy professional is the acute shortage of time to sit down and get in a healthy meal in the morning hours. Such people can spend no more than 15-20 minutes of their morning time eating before their schedule dictated that they start working productively. Cheap healthy meals do exist, however, for those without spare time to enjoy a breakfast. One of the most common food items taken by some milk. Add the oats and you’re ready to go. This makes it perfect for those who are restricted by time shortage. Oatmeal has inherent abilities which are extremely advantageous to those who battle diabetes and obesity. It can reduce blood cholesterol and bring down sugar levels. The meal takes no more than 15 minutes to cook, and is packed with healthy nutrients and content like beta glycan, omega 3 fatty acids and potassium. Instead of sugar, dietitians recommend the use of artificial sweeteners or honey, as well as relying on natural sugars for sweetness, which comes in the form of dry fruits, for example. Thus a prospective cheap healthy meal is a bowl of oatmeal topped with honey, dry fruits and nuts.
