    Whether it be salads, shakes, burgers etc. Just trying to gather some ideas as I'm a busy guy during the week. Appreciate it!

      I spend my weekends stockpiling like a squirrel, so that during the week I can just grab soups, stews, braises from the fridge or freezer and nuke them. An hour or so of cooking for a soup that yields 4 servings averages at about 15 minutes (+ microwave reheating) per serve.

        1) Heat oil in pan.
        2) Chop tomato & put in pan.
        3) Put cooked chicken (whatever form you have) in the pan.
        4) Add seasoning.
        5) Once it's hot, eat.
        Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

        If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

          If you replace 'tomato' with 'any vegetable', and swap 'chicken' for 'any meat', that's how I cook almost all my meals. Fast cooking is easy if you enjoy boring food, LOL.

            The most time-efficient way to cook primally is to buy a large crockpot (at least 6 quarts), and cook 4 or 5 lb pot roasts on Sunday mornings with whatever veg included - you'll get half a dozen cheap and tasty meals that you can take with you and reheat anywhere.
            If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least and this (personal fave):

              I'm pan frying in bacon grease this week:

              Salmon Fishcakes (from the MDA boards)

              1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
              2 eggs, beaten
              1 small onion, diced finely
              1 teaspoon ground black pepper
              3 tablespoons bacon grease (for frying)

              1. Pick through the salmon and remove any bones. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and add the diced onion, salmon and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

              2. Shape into 2 ounce patties; about 7 or 8 patties. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Fry each patty for 5 minutes on each side or until crispy and golden brown.


              Spicy Chicken Koftas

              1 lb skinless boneless chicken
              2 cloves garlic
              2 tbsp ginger
              4 tsp garam masala
              pinch of turmeric
              4 tbsp chopped cilantro
              half a green bell pepper
              2 fresh green chillis, seeded (optional)
              one quarter small onion
              cooking fat
              lime wedges

              Put all ingredients except oil and lime into food processor or blender and until finely chopped. Shape into 16 balls. Heat oil in large skillet or Wok
              and fry koftas for 8 to 10 minutes turning to ensure even cooking. Drain and serve hot with lime wedges and/or paleo friendly salsa.
