I've had alopecia areata for a number of months with bald patches on my chin. It wasn't an issue for me. I am usually clean shaven and the bald spots are hardly noticeable. However, a new bald spot just appeared on my head and this has me worried. I'm mostly concerned about losing my eyebrows and eyelashes, so I figure I should try the AI protocol to cure my alopecia.
My diet is heavy on dairy and eggs because they are convenient and easy to prepare. I don't have time to cook everyday. I think I'd be able to prepare a week's worth of meals once a week, but have no idea where to start.
I have the cooking skills of a bachelor and am short on time. Taste is not an issue for me, it's all about health and convenience. What are some easy to prepare AI protocol meals that you would recommend?

I tend to yo-yo between all-day chef and the Lazy Bachelor protocol.
Rice is easy to cook a bunch up and put it in the freezer. This way, you have quick carbs in about 5 minutes should a random crash hit. (I usually eat it with seaweed and coconut aminos or tamari.)
White / sweet potatoes can easily go in a microwave for about 5-10 minutes -- quick hot carbs.
Lunch meat (ham / turkey / chicken) -- quick protein snack.
Raw fruits / vegetables -- quick fiber / nutrients.
I've got a foreman grill that cooks perfect bacon, then the trays pop off and goes in the dishwasher -- super quick / easy.
Fish / steak / chicken is pretty easy. Fried rice is actually very easy, filling, and makes great leftovers. (Just take some of your frozen rice and throw that on a pan, crack an egg in the middle, scramble it, add soy sauce, meat, and vegetables.) That's about all I've got.
I tend to cook breakfast (or just eat raw fruit / veggies), do leftovers for lunch, then cook something good for dinner that supplies the following leftovers.

Consider seeing a doctor for treatment of your autoimmune disease. The "autoimmune" "paleo" diet is not based on accepted medical science and is not approved to treat any autoimmune disease.

I make a huge meatloaf w/ grass fed beef (when possible) and whatever veggies are around, onion,zuchinni, green pepper, red pepper, tomatoes, spices, topped with tomato paste and eat that all week long. I too don't mind eating the same thing everyday until one day I wake up and need to switch to something else. I've also been making salmon burgers ahead and eating them cold or putting them in the microwave w/ paleo mayo. also chili is a good cook ahead option. Those have been my go to meals since starting Paleo in Nov. Super easy.
