Personally, I wouldn't trust that shredded cauliflower would stay fresh for long. I've thrown it in the freezer and it's lasted and tasted fine, but it's not fresh and I doubt very nutrient dense any more since I've read a few times that vitamin content gets lost quickly as soon as fruits & veggies are cut. But I don't know for sure. So I prefer to keep it fresh, even though that is a bit more inconvenient. Between me and our little ones, we end up eating it all anyway.

These are wonderful ideas! Coconut flour/egg breads and muffins definitely can fill up your family if they're getting too hungry!... If you can stay away from carbs you will feel full and satisfied for longer!

Re: Paleo/Primal mamas...help with food ideas?

I'm just now eating a big bowl of this kale and chorizo soup, from paleopot.com, she has a lot of paleo recipes on there for slow cookers and one pot meals.

If you're after some no-grain baked goods, paleo style, try Elana's Pantry , she has a lot on her site, they can be good for school lunches and good for transitioning from SAD eating.

My hubby and I have been eating Paleo for about a year now and since then, we have come up with some ways to meal prep and save some money while grocery shopping since eating paleo/primal can get a bit expensive. To start with, we look at the local grocery stores' weekly ads for specials and sales on meat. If we find a good deal on organic meats, we will buy and/or stock up on those, but if not we try to find the best quality meats for our budget.

As for fruits and veggies, we participate in a local produce co-op that sources organic produce from local farms. We never know what our share is for that week, but whatever it is, we incorporate those into our daily meals by either making salads, grilling, or roasting them.

Based on what is on sale, we'll create our menu for the week. For our menus, we will make something for dinner and then take the left overs for lunch. Since my hubby and I both work full time, we meal prep on Sunday afternoons. We prep and cook meals to last us through Wednesday and prep ingredients for the rest of the week so we can easily cook the later half of the week. For breakfast, we will make paleo "cereal" which is basically a bunch of nuts roasted and tossed in honey, or we will have any extra left overs, or hard boiled eggs with a fruit or veggie side. We also recently started drinking bulletproof coffee, which really helps to keep us full until lunch if we don't have a full breakfast.

As for recipe ideas, we have several paleo cookbooks, and we also follow several blogs in the Internet for yummy meals. Some of the ones we follow are Civilized Caveman, Nom Nom Paleo, Paleo Parents, The Urban Poser, The Domestic Man, and OMGPaleo. Sorry I don't have the links included, but if you put any of those in a search engine, you can find the links.

HTH! Best of luck!

Even beyond paleo I'm allergic to eggs, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, onions, cauliflower, bananas, almonds ... shall I go on?

My diet is very limited but when I make life about LIFE and not about food the limitations are that big of a deal. That's what works for me though, and I know it's HARD to not feel restricted. It's been so long since I started all these eliminations though that this is just the way life is (and it's actually easier!).

We eat sausage -- it's home made. All the ingredients going in are paleo therefore it counts IMO

Filling up really means more water and a snack that doesn't spike your blood sugar. Protein with fruit givers accessible energy but the blood sugar spike is mediated so there's no crash. Water is hugely important. I drink over a gallon on my own!
