I am about to do a 30 day paleo challenge and I don't like fish!

As I said, I am going to do a 30 day paleo challenge, but I do not like fish or seafoods of any kind at all! Almost all of the paleo plans that I have found say some sort of fish for meals, I need quick and easy recipes with chicken or beef to substitute instead?! Thanks so much everyone!

"The haddock hits me with a sucker punch. I catch him with a left hook. He eels over. It was a fluke, but there he was, lying on the deck, flat as a mackerel, kelpless."

Fisherman's eggs are probably the most amazing thing I've discovered via Paleohacks. I need to find the original poster I found it from and swear to eternal gratitude. More sardines for us!

Good point on the omega-3. That's going to be important if it's a seafood-free diet.

totally not conducive to answering your question - but not any kind at all??? can i not tempt you at all to somehow grow fond of our little friend the sardine.. he's just sooooooo darn tasty, convenient and nutritious :P (the more for me I suppose!)

You don't need to eat fish but you should try to increase your omega 3 intake to be healthy. Eat omega 3 enriched eggs and take fish oil supplement pills.

Here are some of my favorite non-seafood recipes: Bell Pepper Chicken Fajitas, Paleo Chili, Apple Cinnamon Chicken, and you could also make ginger shrimp and avocado salad but substitute chicken in for fish.

Fish is not a requirement.

It is a great food source however. Paleo can be a lot about experimenting with different foods and recipes, at least it was for me. I don't know what experience you have with seafood but I bet there is something out there that you like. You just have to find it. My favorites are salmon and shrimp.

That being said you can still do a 30 day Paleo challenge without seafood.

Just from searching Google here are a couple Paleo recipe websites you can look at:

I eat very little seafood and go months sometimes between times. Hubby is allergic to fish, shellfish, and crustaceans. We eat bbeef, pork, and chicken.

Have you tried haddock? Halibut? Neither is particularly fishy in flavour or scent.
