Thanks for the recipe suggestion. We do have a crock pot so one day I can try this. In all honesty I don't think it's too hard to find things my family would like to eat. Perhaps they're just being stubborn for stubborn's sake. They just don't want to be told or they aren't convinced by the science (or in dad's case won't listen.) Meat and vegetables is about as basic as you can get and as long as you're not vegan or have problems with digesting animal protein, they will eat it. In fact my dad has partaken of some things I've made, though I wasn't happy about it.

I don't have a problem cooking/sharing paleo meals with others. But I don't appreciate my meals being eaten or being ordered to make something or even getting the side-eye because what I'm doing is weird to other people. Dx
But that's mostly my dad. The irony is he can watch Dual Survival, Survivorman, Bear Grylles and acts like a know-it-all when it comes to survival but won't even take the initiate to make his own food or serve himself and looks at ME like I'm nuts for wanting to eat clean meat. </rant over>
I have to ask, since I'm currently the only one who's eating paleo in the house, should I try to find recipes that have small servings? I'm worried about over making and then wasting food when it doesn't last as long. I make sloppy joe, 4 servings, but by day 4, mom said it was probably best not to eat it (it had been in the fridge.) I'm not an expert on how long food lasts in the fridge after it's cooked. I just don't want to waste food after making it because it goes bad before I can eat it. I made 6 (roughly 4oz) chicken legs and I'm not sure I could eat more than one at a sitting.
