By far the most common reason that people fall off of the paleo diet is their struggle to create a variety of delicious meals with the time they have available. After all, we all recognize the benefits of a paleo diet – who wouldn’t want those? But, let’s face facts – as much as we wish we had the time to spend hours each day slaving over the stove to surprise our families with a different mouth-watering dish for every meal, we have lives to live. For most of us, that’s just not an option.
But I have some good news for those of us with limited time, cooking abilities, and patience. There’s one resource out there that solves all of those problems in one go. No time? No problem. No cooking skills? No problem. No superhero ability to come up with a new dish every day? No problem.
The Paleo Hacks Cookbook is a downloadable book of over 200 delicious recipes that you’re guaranteed to never have seen or eaten before. Covering all categories of food including main meals, snacks, salads, and desserts, this book does away with the boredom that comes with eating the same meals over and over again.
How often do you eat chicken and vegetables? Or steak and vegetables? Quite often, we’re guessing. And that’s exactly where The Paleo Cookbook comes in, with recipes we would never have come up with ourselves, like Sweet Potato & Tuna Patties. Mm!
- 2 cups sweet potato, peeled & diced
- 180g can tuna in brine, drained
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Place diced sweet potato in a covered pan with water on medium-high heat and boil for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
- Remove sweet potato from pan and place in a medium sized mixing bowl with the tuna, almond meal, eggs, olive oil, sale and pepper. Combine well.
- Shape tuna mixture into patties and place on a preheated grill on medium heat; cook for 5-7minutes, or until cooked through.
- Serve with salad.

Think you don’t have the time or the skill to serve desserts more exciting than a fruit salad? Think again. What could be simpler than mixing ingredients in a bowl, and putting it into the oven for half an hour? And yet, that would give you these delicious Cinnamon Raisin Cookies:
- ½ cup almond meal
- 3 tablespoons
- freshly ground walnuts
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/16 teaspoon all spice
- 1/16 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons currants
- ⅓ cup raisins
- Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180 Celsius/350 Fahrenheit.
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. On a baking tray lined with baking paper, firmly pack mixture down into a large square or rectangle shape.
- Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until well browned and cooked.
- Cool before cutting into individual servings.
