10 Paleo Dishes to Try This Fall
The Paleo diet is very popular amongst athletes and individuals alike, and creating a Paleo meal plan is relatively easy. The Paleo diet is based on the eating habits of our ancestors in the Stone Age, focusing on meat, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as a basis to their nutrition. There are a variety of delicious Paleo meals that one can try out this fall.
Lemon Chicken Kebabs
You will use skinless chicken breasts, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and pepper. Just preheat your grill until it’s ready; you can also start soaking the wooden skewers in water to prevent them from burning. Then mix the olive oil, pepper and garlic in a separate bowl and add the chicken pieces to it. After leaving them to marinate for about half an hour, simply add them to the skewers and grill them for a further 15 minutes until they are done. Remember to continuously rotate.
Grilled scallops in a red pepper sauce
Is the perfect Paleo meal. You will need to get some coconut oil, a lemon and a dozen large scallops. You will also need to prepare a sauce, which will consist of a large clove of garlic, lemon juice from a freshly squeezed lemon, a large roasted red pepper and some olive oil. Simply squeeze the lemon juice over the scallops to marinade them. Then you can add all of the remaining ingredients together and mix them up until you have a smooth sauce; then heat it in a sauce pan. Finally you need to grill the scallops, using coconut oil, for about five minutes each. When they are done, put them on a plate and cover them with your delicious pepper sauce to complete the meal.
Fall Vegetable Salad
This salad is the answer to those warmer days of fall, the days that call for something a bit lighter, but still seasonal. Roasting the vegetables in the salad dressing creates a remarkably intense flavor, but generous amounts of spinach balance out the richness so it doesn’t get overwhelming. Add some almonds for a little crunch, and it’s perfect for a warm October day.
You can serve this salad hot out of the oven, or you can pop the roasted vegetables in the fridge to chill before tossing them with the dressing and the spinach (don’t mix it all up and then chill; the spinach will get soggy). Either way, it’s a delicious and colorful meal to perk up your day with a slightly different way of enjoying a seasonal favorite.
Roasted Garlic Autumn Root Vegetable Mash
Thanksgiving dinner just wouldn’t be complete without a generous serving of mashed root vegetables. And while mashed potatoes will always have a special place in my heart, I’ve come to prefer this Autumn Mash as a comforting, colorful alternative because: (A) it tastes better, and (B) it’s so much prettier. Best of all, this dish doesn’t just taste fab, it also keeps fantastically. Make a batch a couple of days ahead of time, and reheat it when you’re ready to feast. Minimizing the muss ‘n fuss (or is it fuss ‘n muss?) on Turkey Day is always a good thing.

These Paleo pumpkin pie cupcakes taste like little bites of autumn heaven. You don’t even need a mixer to make the cupcakes. Just a food processor or blender will do. If you want to make the whipped topping, you will need a mixer.

Creamy Pumpkin Chicken Casserole
This creamy pumpkin chicken casserole is nicely spiced and wonderfully creamy. The pumpkin has a lot of flavor and envelopes the bits of chicken and spaghetti squash strands in this dish.
The way you make this recipe is very similar to the way you make my paleo chicken spaghetti. The major difference is here you’re making a creamy pumpkin sauce vs. a creamy mushroom sauce. The creamy pumpkin sauce is made with ingredients like cinnamon, freshly grated nutmeg, cumin and coriander powder. This recipe also includes eggs.
Thai Pumpkin Chicken Curry
Like any curry, you need to start this dish by creating your base. In this case, cook your onions, Thai bird’s eye chilies, ginger and garlic. Then add your spices and curry paste. Once you’ve given your spices a minute to bloom on the pan, add your cubed chicken and make sure it gets well coated with your spice mixture. This will give the meat some color and flavor. Add your bell pepper and Thai basil then pour in the pumpkin puree, coconut milk and fish sauce. Simmer it for 15 or so minutes until the chicken is done, add some lime juice and viola, you’ve got yourself a spicy pumpkin chicken curry
