Meal plans for strict paleo (including avoiding nightshades and eggs)?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 28, 2012 at 9:29 PM

I have on-again/off-again digestion issues, and I was considering doing strict paleo PLUS avoiding nightshades, eggs, alcohol, dairy, and all nuts and seeds for the first 30 days. This sounds very restrictive, but I'm willing to do it if it'll help me better understand what foods are causing me digestive issues. I plan to add these foods back in gradually after my 30 day trial.

Since this is so restrictive, though, I was wondering if someone knew of a mealplan that avoided these foods so that I would have something to follow. I'm especially worried about breakfast, because my first instinct for breakfast is to reach for the eggs.

Also, should I be avoiding caffeine? I'm not much of a coffee drinker, it's mostly several cups of tea a day.

Thanks.

i don't see any "meal plans" in any of those links, though. unless i'm missing something? and as someone about ready to return to a whole 30 in january since i've started having gut/immune issues again, i know i'd appreciate something stricter as well.

Remember that breakfast just requires *food,* not "breakfast food." There's nothing wrong with having leftovers for breakfast: meat & veg, stir-fry...when you cook, cook in big batches so you'll always have leftovers. How many of us had cold pizza for breakfast in college? You wouldn't have pizza now, of course, but cold meatloaf (sans breadcrumbs)? Sure.

I'm pretty sure that the Practical Paleo book has an eating plan that would help you. She has an autoimmune section that avoids nightshades. Her recipes are really good. I've been happy with everything I've tried and she has reccomendations for all types of strict diets. Just FYI

your overthinking this one girl...eat your eggs, eat your dairy and eat you damn nightshades....suffering is not health...its what creates health problems in the first place...avoid grains, avoid nuts, avoid above ground vegetables (spinach, broccoli, etc.)

I'm with you: super restrictive due to egg intolerance, and dairy too, among other foods. Coffee is known to be 'cross-reactive' if you have a gluten intolerance. Chocolate as well. I said "FUCK THAT" and will occasionally eat chocolate if I'm craving it. I will still have coffee once in a blue moon, but it has to be good quality. If it isn't, I feel very nauseated. I adore tea and absolutely refuse to give it up. If David's Tea were a publicly traded company, I'd have a shit ton of stock invested!

For breakfast, I will typically eat some sort of protein, and an entire avocado. Don't sweat the O6 in avocado. Protein could be some quick fry sirloin strips, or a can of tuna, or sardines, some shrimp, or some bacon.

Alternately, I'll eat a side of protein (like something above) and I'll make a 'fat-bomb' shake: coconut milk, avocado, maybe some cocoa if I feel like it, maybe some banana or maybe some macadamia nut butter. I know you're not doing nuts, and neither do I unless it's mac nuts. Not too often either.

i have been following the AI protocol for two months. while i haven't seen any digestive improvements for my AI condition, i have gotten used to no eggs for breakfast. it was weird at first, but i usually just have meat and veggies for breakfast now.

There are lots of autoimmune approaches to doing Paleo. You can try Whole30 with no nightshades,nuts,seeds (paleo already is non-dairy, and whole30 already avoid alcohol as well as other baddies). Just go to whole9life.com

For Robb Wolf's autoimmune protocol there are already tons of threads here on that, including for example, this one: http://paleohacks.com/questions/79396/what-is-robb-wolfs-autoimmune-protocol#axzz2GNTXmUOc Or you can just go to his pages at robbwolf.com
