paleo meal plan 9

Success with weight loss, eating healthy food or just feeling better is easy when you have everything handled for you. By everything, we mean the meal plan which includes recipes, shopping lists, kitchen tips, pantry staples, side dishes, desserts and resources galore.

You will see people offering 1 week, 2 weeks, 30 days etc for your meal plans which are all great. We just knew that most people eat 365 days a year, not just 14 so we wanted to cater to them which I am pretty sure includes you :) Our meal plans are made every week and updated with our latest recipes as well as popular recipes from other awesome bloggers.

Paleo Meal Plan

Our goal is to help you feel better than you’ve every felt while enjoying every bite of food and moment of your life while on your Paleo diet lifestyle. You’ll never go hungry, get stressed or fail because there is only winning when you choose to take care of your body. Perfection doesn’t exist, so we just encourage you to do your best, love yourself and keep smiling. There is no right way or wrong way to live this lifestyle, the only rule is that you start.

IMPORTANT: You don’t need to make every meal or use the full meal plan. You don’t need to buy the whole shopping list or stock your pantry all at once. All you need to do is start by making SMALL changes.


Don’t stop when you are Tired. Stop when you are DONE!

paleo peach cobbler

Peach Cobbler is one of those desserts that have been passed down through the generations. It’s easy to see why it has withstood the test of time. Every time a spoonful of warm peaches with a toasty crunch hits your taste buds it immediately takes you to a calm, peaceful and happy belly state. I had to make sure that being Paleo didn’t mean we couldn’t live without this world famous dessert. Now I present you with my Paleo Peach Cobble with fresh blueberries.

Paleo Peach Cobbler with Blueberries

Just in case peaches aren’t in season where you are, or you don’t like peeling them, you can use nectarines instead. Actually, you could really go crazy with any fruit you absolutely love and make it work. When doing so, leave me a comment with ideas so I can try them in our kitchen.

If you choose to make this delicious healthy dessert recipe with frozen peaches, make sure they are fully thawed before you make this recipe. If you leave them at room temperature, it will take between 3-5 hours so plan accordingly. When possible, always use fresh and from a local farmer if possible. I got these peaches from our farmer’s market and they tasted phenomenal.


Did you hear the joke about the Peach? It was Pit-i-full!

My favorite way to eat this cobbler is directly from the warm cast iron skillet after removing from the oven with one addition, ice cream. I like to take a large scoop of coconut milk ice cream and place it right in the middle of the warm skillet so it melts in every fruity crevice.

Paleo peach cobbler with melted coconut milk ice cream, could life get anymore delicious. I think I am going to experiment with adding chocolate to the cobbler too. Because, well chocolate, that’s why.

I would love to spend more time with you today, but I would prefer you get to cooking. While you are shopping for peaches, make sure you stock up on extras because I have a few more simple recipes for you to try:

Do you have any family favorite recipes with peaches I should try? If so, please leave me a comment with the recipe or a link so we can check it out. Until then, enjoy this paleo peach cobbler with fresh blueberries and lots of smiles.

flourless chocolate muffins

I am so excited to be posting again as well as sharing such a delicious recipe. These flourless chocolate muffins from Slim Pickin’s Kitchen are delicious and make breakfast quick and easy. Amber even shares some of her super secret mom tips that keep her successful. Everything from paleo breakfast options that are egg free and even how to survive a Whole 30/Paleo lifestyle. Enjoy the delicious photography and eating the batter while making these flour chocolate muffins.

Flourless Chocolate Muffins

Hi, y’all! My name is Amber, and I’m the culinary creator behind, Slim Pickin’s Kitchen, a food blog focused on creative recipes seasoned with a bit of my Southern sass. I am a winner of the TODAY Show’s home chef challenge, and my recipes have been featured in a variety of media outlets including CountryLiving.com, Our State Magazine, and Buzzfeed. I am also an active member of George’s Facebook group, and I encourage y’all to join if you haven’t already.

Although the majority of my recipes are not strictly paleo, I do create cuisine that fits a variety of healthy living lifestyles including clean eating, paleo, plant-based, dairy, gluten, grain, refined sugar, and soy-free, and I myself try to follow a clean eating lifestyle as best as I can.


I am currently giving you permission to have Chocolate for breakfast! Seriously!
Click To Tweet


I am irrevocably in love with chocolate, and I believe some days are meant to start off with a fudgy bite of rich chocolate decadence. That’s where my flourless Chocolate muffins come in. These blender muffins are completely flourless, can be free of added sugars and dairy, are naturally sweetened with dates, and are stocked with healthy fats and antioxidants so you can fulfill your chocolate cravings without feeling guilty about your choice.

There are two topics I’ve seen trending in the healthy living world lately:

  1. What’s the easiest way to survive/maintain a paleo &/or Whole30 lifestyle?
  2. What are some quick and easy, grab and go breakfast options that aren’t eggs?

How to Survive a Whole 30/Paleo Lifestyle

No matter what dietary guidelines you follow the answer to this question is really quite simple: meal planning and meal prepping/batch cooking are huge yet simple steps to success. Without these straightforward strategies we’re really setting ourselves up for unnecessary hardship. That’s why George’s meal plans are so amazing! He does half the work for us. Trust me; I understand saying it and actually doing it are two different things.

I am a stay-at-home mom to a 20-month-old cyclone of energy and my husband works odd hours as a real estate agent & auctioneer so I don’t always get around to prepping my meals for the week either. The weeks when meal prepping falls to the wayside are the same weeks when I tend to hit hiccups with my health.

I try to prep, freeze, and batch cook every free chance I get so if I do hit a snag or my son has a clingy day I will have as many healthy options available for my family as I can. Using a slow cooker is a great way to save time and cook a large portion of meat at once. George’s BBQ pulled pork and my Honey Pecan Chicken are two amazing and easy recipes to make, and you can use the meat for a variety of different dishes throughout the week.

Paleo Breakfast Options (NOT Eggs!!!)

As you all know, starting your day off with a healthy breakfast is essential to keeping your body and mind in top form. Most breakfast recipes include scrambled, fried, or poached eggs, but I’m just not a fan! I know, I know. It’s blasphemous, but I’ve never really liked eggs and, from what I can tell, there are others in the world like me and there are others who are getting sick of eating eggs for breakfast.

These flourless chocolate muffins solve both the meal prepping dilemma and the grab and go breakfast recipe requests all-in-one because they are quick to whip up and the recipe makes a full dozen. Every ingredient for these flourless chocolate muffins are paleo pantry staples, and I’d bet most of you have them in your possession at this very moment.


Finally, a paleo breakfast option that ISN’T eggs!!
Click To Tweet


Throw all of the ingredients into your high powered blender or food processor and give it a good zsoosh until the batter is completely smooth. Then scoop them out, sprinkle them with some chocolate chips or cacao nibs, pop them in the oven and bake. In 15 minutes you’ll have flourless chocolate muffins that are so fudgy and rich you’ll be shocked they’re made without butter, oil, or sugar.

Although these muffins aren’t Whole30 compliant, they’re still a fantastic and good for you grab and go breakfast or sweet indulgence. They are also an excellent starter recipe to serve to your family or friends who may question your dietary choices or who scoff at the thought of combining chocolate, avocado, and dates into an edible dish. Watch closely as their eyes ignite with the first bite because you may just witness their realization that eating real, healthy, and quality food may be a lot easier than they thought.

Paleo Meal Plan 4

So how are you liking the new paleo meal plans? When we launched the brand new meal plan last week we did not expect the overwhelming response we received, but are so glad that we did. Thousands of people downloaded the new paleo meal plan and loved the new layout and information. We also received a lot of great feedback and this week includes 3 brand new sections that people requested. One of the requests with the meal plans, was that I keep the blog posts short and to the point. With that being said, click on any image to download your meal plan.
