Hi guys, my name is Sarah and I'm new. I have M.S. and started this way of eating after reading Dr. Wahls Paleo Protocol but have had a major derailing with my husband who is my caregiver not having time to prepare paleo meals for me. So we've over indulged in the no nos of late and I'm rebooting. I need easy go tos as hubby is under heavy workload right now. Keeping olives, nuts, and dry fruit on hand as well as easy ready to eat fruit and veggies. I'd love any tips or easy go tos people like best. Oh also can't handle liver so went to buy pate but they have dairy and sugar in any that I've seen, any one know a prepared pate brand that fits paleo? Also I am trying to stick to anti-inflammatory so no nightshades.

what about lunch meats-applegate, canned fish/mussels/oysters, beef jerky, beef sticks, smoked fish (in packages), hardboiled eggs, Epic bars? do you eat eggs? mayo is great in tuna, egg, and chicken salad and cooked on top of salmon in the oven. i'm not sure exactly what foods are on the wahl's protocol and if they differ from paleo. those are my typical early in the day foods. at night, crockpot meals are my favorite. your husband could just put a hunk of meat in there with chopped carrots, zucchini, onions, sweet potatoes, and some seasonings and it would be good to go in 8 hours. crockpot roast chicken is easy- line the bottom with onions and place a seasoned chicken roaster on top. cook on low for 6 hours. beef chuck is good. my favorite recipe is a 3 lb chuck with 1/2 cup of pesto rubbed all over and cooked on low for 8 hours. it is super flavorful and lasts me the whole week. also, if you have access to beef tongue, that can be done in the crockpot as well and is SUPER TENDER AND AMAZING. it's one of my favorite cuts of beef. also, short ribs are super easy in the crockpot, too with some red wine.

Sadly I am not up to preparing things (my hands have intention tremor, particularly in my dominant hand so it has to be packaged things I can get into easily and the like) I am egg and legume free so no soy alternative items either. If tongue is anything like liver I couldn't handle that consistency. Pate I love though so if I could find a paleo friendly version to incorporate that would be great. I know there are recipes but I can't prepare them. And there are different strains of paleo on Wahls going towards ketogenic. I'm in the first tier eggs out for 3 months before attempting re introduction, no legumes, and in my case no nightshades. No dairy, and no refined sugar.

Canned sardines for sure. I suggest you try eating only egg yolks, so have your husband hard boil and peel a dozen. Avocado is fairly easy to handle. Not sure if it applies to you, but I swear by natto, which I usually eat for breakfast with olives, rice, and frozen, diced liver, which is easy to swallow as a pill. I know it is soy, but it is pre-digested and full of beneficial chemicals.
We also make 3-weeks pots of broth (5 gallons, kept in quarts in the freezer), and weekly pots of rice or potatoes. Also, weekly large pots of squash soup.
