Creating a paleo meal plan. You want to do it? I’ve got your back.
And I’m not going to sugar-coat it – meal planning is absolutely essential to your success on paleo.
“He who fails to plan is planning to fail.” – Winston Churchill
Not only does meal planning take time – but you have other stuff to do! Cooking & eating healthy is hard enough without planning it all yourself as well. You have better things to do – whether it’s your job, taking care of your family or spending time on what you enjoy.
That’s why we created Paleo Meal Plans – a done-for-you meal planning service that makes staying paleo & healthy oh, so simple.

What is paleo meal planning and prepping?
Meal planning and meal prepping go hand in hand. Meal planning is when you sit down and decide what meals you’ll prep for the week. This requires some thought, research, and list-making.
Meal prepping is the act of preparing food in advance so that it makes eating easier through the week. This can include shopping for ingredients, preparing the food, and portioning it out for the week ahead. Depending on the person doing it, it can happen in an infinite amount of ways.
Without meal planning, meal prep would be almost impossible. Meal planning should be the first step in your prep routine. You should take into account how your week is scheduled out, and determine what meals and the type of meals you’ll need to get through the week.
Why should I meal plan & prep on the paleo diet?
I won’t lie – paleo meal planning and prepping can be overwhelming. Fortunately, as with most things in life, it gets much easier with time and practice.
Don’t let the fear stop you from giving it a shot. This practice can really be a game-changer in diet and lifestyle changes. Once you get it down, it’s a staple as part of the basics of paleo.
3 Reasons Paleo Meal Plans are Key
So let’s cut to the chase. Here’s why paleo meal plans are going to change your life.
Meal planning makes life easier
Most obviously, you should meal plan and prep because it makes eating throughout the week much easier. Whether you’re making entire meals or just preparing your ingredients to be easier to incorporate into meals, any sort of pre-preparation makes a difference.
Meal planning saves time, money, and sanity
Meal prep will save you money. No joke, when you’re prepared with meals and a plan, there’s less chance that you’ll find yourself running to the closest restaurant on your lunch break because you don’t have anything to eat.
It will save you time. You know those nights that you get home from a hard day and the last thing you want to do is cook? Good news – when you meal plan, you’ve already got meals in your fridge ready to go. Hallelujah.
It will save you mental capacity. Decision fatigue is a real thing. We have so many decisions to make throughout the day, and the more decisions we have to make, the more chance there is that we make poor ones as the day continues. Science has explored this and it’s really quite interesting.
When you prepare, that’s one less choice you have to make through the day. It not only saves you from throwing your hands in the air and splurging on junk food, but it also allows you to reserve your willpower and spend your precious mental energy on making other decisions.
Meal Planning sets you up for success on the Paleo Diet
Meal prepping sets you up for success. By doing it, you’re making a tangible commitment to yourself. Unlike just telling yourself that you’ll eat healthy this week, you’re taking an actionable step to get yourself there. Every time you open your fridge or pack your lunch with your prepped food, you can see that commitment staring you in the face.

We realize that meal planning is hard. We’re all busy and at some point, something has got to give.
We don’t want the thing to go to be your health. That’s how Paleo Meal Plans was born.

What sets Paleo Meal Plans apart from the rest?
There are a lot of Paleo meal planning services out there. What sets Paleo Meal Plans apart from the rest?
I’d argue it’s the 15/5 rule that all of our recipes follow. Each recipe sets you up for simple success – it contains no more than 5 ingredients and takes no longer than 15 minutes to whip up.
No complicated recipes or a mile-long grocery list is needed for you to succeed at Paleo. This plan ensures that you keep it simple.
Not only that but you are supported every step of the way. When you sign up, you’ll get access to our private Facebook community where you can connect with people who are following the same plan. You’ll also be guided by our in-house nutritionist, Chelsea, who is available to answer any question you may have.
Chelsea holds a Master’s degree in Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine. A real-food, Paleo approach to nutrition changed her life, so she went back to school to pursue a career that would allow her to help people come to the same realization. Now, she works directly with Ultimate Paleo Guide and Paleo Meal Plans to do just that.
