3 Fast and Easy Paleo Meals


I was an 8 on the pain scale last night. I also made a vow to eat 80% of the month paleo.

I’m so proud of getting dinner on the table. I figure all of my other chronic pain and illness warriors would like to know 3 fast and easy paleo meals.

1. Salmon with Red Potatoes and Green Beans.
Paleo and Whole30 Compliant.


Ingredients:

  • 1lb of salmon
  • 4-6 red potatoes
  • A couple of big handfuls frozen green beans (let’s get real here chronic pain and illness warriors don’t need to be standing up snapping green beans)
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper


Supplies:

  • Cookie sheet
  • Aluminum foil
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Medium-Large Bowl


Get it done:
Pre-heat oven to 400°.

While the oven heats, cover the cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Put a couple of big handfuls of frozen green beans into the bowl.

Scrub the potatoes and cut in half, half again, and then in thirds. Dump into bowl with green beans. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, season to taste with salt and pepper. Use your hands or a large spoon to toss the vegetables around a bit to coat them thoroughly. Set aside.

Place salmon in center of cookie sheet, skin side down. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle garlic all over salmon, salt generously. Dump veggies from bowl around the salmon.

Pop into oven. Cook 20 minuets. Pull the salmon out and place on plate and return veggies to oven for an additional 10 minuets.

Dinner done!
