The Lazy Paleo

So, I've been moderately paleo for roughly 3-4 months now. Overall, I stick to a routine food regimen (mainly organic). I eat a lot of eggs. A lot. Sometimes for breakfast I'll eat buckwheat cereal with apples in coconut milk. This morning I literally ate a saut??ed onion. I've grown sort of lazy in the kitchen because I have limited time to prepare my meals throughout the day.

I've resorted to eating an excess of raw vegetables. Because it's simple. Nature has done all the preparation required. I've grown partial to dried plums, too. Oh, and nuts! Thing is, I may be consuming too much fiber (cellulose). My stomach has been acting up over the past few weeks that it's become unbearable.

What foods will give me more of the nutrition I lack? I'm not a vegetarian but preparing and cooking meat is too time consuming. I'm on a hunt for some kick ass beef jerky. Other than that, I pick at cold cuts in the fridge and on occasion eat chicken. I do not like most seafood. Any suggestions? Also, is there a paleo food pyramid?

Find some slow cooker and casserole recipes that look good to you. Take an afternoon once a week and prep what you'll need for your slow cooker meals and make a couple of casseroles that day as well. Make enough food that you can eat for the rest of the week. It's a lot of work 1 day a week, it's less work if you get the whole family to help.

The rest of the week, you're just heating up stuff. Simple and easy. Also, look for recipes for paleo tomato sauce and pack it with veggies. Make a lot of it and freeze it. Nothing easier than cooking 2 pounds of grass fed ground beef and then adding several cups of paleo tomato sauce to it. Quick, easy, nutrient dense and tasty.

I can be pretty lazy when it comes to cooking, but it's not bad if you cook a lot of food once or twice a week.

Perfect health diet has a version of the pyramid. Beyond that consider taking some action to un-lazy yourself with the thought that eating right is for your long term survival, nobody else is going to do it for you.

pressure cooker. I pressure cook basically everything. Takes me about 15 mins total including prep to get stuff like lamb shank, oxtail, heart, beef shin and veg on the table . I also do bone broth in it - massive beef bones for 2 hours and I get perfectly gelled stock.
