He gets sick of salads fast, and I've been buying the pre-cooked bacon and all-natural sausages to make life easy. I think we are unworried about trace amounts of soy or corn right now, he just wants to stick close to paleo until things get back to normal.

Any ideas?
hmmm.....Can you or DH cook triple the amount of meat you would normally need when you do cook? then you can eat leftovers for the next 2 days, just nuke some veggies to go with it. similarly, you can make a big pot of soup or chili and eat that all week.

seriously,,try a crockpot meal but cook it for half the amount of time the recipe says to. See if that helps improve the texture/ taste.
