Brunette’s Top 5 Budget Paleo Dinners


It was not easy looking through the internet for paleo dinners. One thing I learned, is paleo dinners seem to have super long ingredients lists, which don’t always work for people on a budget. I think the list below can work for anyone on a budget, with many using simple ingredients and ingredients a paleo cook will have on hand already. What are your favorite paleo dinners? Comment below!

1. Simple Sausage Casserole

I love casseroles. This recipe combines sausage and veggies, a bit of seasoning, and an oven for a really quick throw together meal. This is a great recipe to reheat for breakfast or brunch the next day.

2. Twice Baked Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes can be baked a head of time, which is a super time saver. When you are getting toward the end of the week, most often you have those bits of meats and veggies left over. Top these potatoes with whatever left over meats and veggies, and dinner is served!

3. Paleo Mini Meatloaves

Don’t let the ingredient list scare you, most of the ingredients are seasonings and staples you will already have on hand if you are following a paleo diet, like eggs and coconut flour. The bulk of the recipe is only 5 ingredients, and these meatloaves are super cute and can be served with whatever side dish you like. I don’t know about you, but meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods. Depending on your budget, this recipe gives you the freedom to choose whatever ground meat mixture you like.

4. One Skillet Chicken Thighs

I don’t think you can get any more frugal with this recipe. With only three ingredients, plus seasonings, this recipe is cooked in one skillet. Not only is this convenient for clean up, but the recipe also uses a really cheap cut of meat. Chicken thighs are always cheaper than chicken breasts, even if you buy them boneless and skinless. I find that chicken thighs are on sale more often as well.

5. 5 Ingredient 10 Minute Creamy Dill Salmon

Yes, you read that correctly, five ingredients, and only 10 minutes to make! Even on your busiest day, there is no reason why you can’t get dinner on the table with a 10 minute recipe. Serve up with a quick salad, and your family will think you’re a pro (cause you know you are!)
