Hi All,

  I am a mother of 4, I am 31 years old, I am on bed rest.  I am recovering from an injury which may take up to a year to recover from.  I am not always able to cook, and my go to nuts, figs, almond butter, heavy cream, toasted seaweed, and veggie smoothies are just getting sooooo boring!  And I know I am NOT getting enough fat!  

Please folks, tell me some of your favorite, no-cook, high-fat snacks or meals. 

Also, I am on a tight budget and I can't just buy whatever I want.  There are 6 people to feed in the house and we have to be economical.  We shop at Costco, we buy their organic and affordable options.  My diet as of late is pretty much lean meats :( and veggies.  My fat intake comes from the coconut oil I put in my shakes.  That's pretty much it.  I am bored with my diet and crave fat!

P.S.  Because I am on bed rest, I am not the person in the household who does the cooking.  I've hired a nanny.  She's doing my old job; the job that I was doing pre-fourthchild.  I know from experience that that job keeps one VERY busy and I don't have the ability to ask for the nanny to make special or complicated meals for me, nor to cook for myself at present.  FYI.  I've got to keep things SIMPLE!


P.S.S.  If you have favorite veggie dishes, again that are simple, I would LOVE to hear those too!


Lots of love my paleo people!

Ok Here is a list of high-fat low-carb foods, no "cooking" or preparation required:

Fruits and Veggies: avocado, olives (in cans or jars), store-bought guacamole, bagged salads with olive oil+vinegar+salt, microwaveable veggies (3-5 minutes in microwave and they're done) with olive oil or melted butter and salt+pepper.

Nuts: Coconut and coconut flakes, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, macadamias (but they're too expensive). Nut butters from the nuts mentioned above, like almond butter or coconut butter. Also milk or cream from these nuts, like coconut milk, almond milk and coconut cream.

Meats: pate, pre-cooked bacon, cured sausages like salami, canned fish (salmon, tuna in olive oil, sardines in olive oil, mackerel, herring/kippered snacks, etc).

Dairy: cheeses, butter, cream cheese or mascarpone, heavy cream, unsweetened high-fat yoghurt (goes great with cucumbers), and sour cream or creme fraiche (use veggies for dipping, I like celery or bell peppers).

Oils: olive oil (put it on everything), avocado oil, high-oleic safflower or sunflower (has a more neutral flavor), refined coconut oil.

Treats: 85%, 86% or 90% dark chocolate if you like chocolate. I use the 90% one from Lindt, it's pretty damn good in my opinion, but then again I'm a chocolate addict, so you might not like it because it's strong. Peanut butter (no sugar added). Sugar-free whipped cream (Land O' Lakes).

Have fun!

Durian. Good luck finding it though (unless you're in S.E. Asia).

Wait a sec, you eat litte fat, just lean meat and veggies, but you have shakes with coconut oil, nuts, almond butter, and cream? Which is it?

Why are you eating paleo? (Rationale and reasoning are important, paleo is not the only way to eat.)

How about salads with precut/ready to eat vegetables like carrots and cucumbers and leftover meats.  My favorite dressing is about a tablespoon or two of EVOO with salt and spices like ginger and turmeric.
