    Check out fastpaleo.com and paleopot.com (if you have a crockpot)
    Also, Mark has a book that's listed on this site about quick and easy meals, you can download it to a Kindle.

    I've got some pretty yummy, basic recipes on my blog like meatloaf, shepherd's pie, and stir fry. Maybe they'll be up your alley?

    Hello there,

    I read through some of your recipes and they sound quite wonderful. Can you help me come up with a Primal "Hot Pocket"? I want to make some meat pies that are easy to carry but can't find anything like that. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Bacon and eggs is always a good standby. And crockpot meals can have as few as 3-4 ingredients, and are quite simple to throw together. I did one the other day with a rump roast, carrots, onions, and parsnips.

    Dice Monkey, I'm in Fredericksburg too. More accurately, Spotsy County, but with a Fredericksburg mailing address. Do you ever go to the farmer's market at Plank Road and Gordon Road? There's also a store near the Spotsy courthouse that sells meat, eggs, and produce from local farmers.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    Protein. Veggie. Healthy fat. Spice.

    Brown protein in fat with spice. Add veggie. Cook.

    Done.

    Yep. If the meat is fatty enough, you can even skip the extra cooking fat and use whatever comes out of the meat.

    Easiest Version(Requires Pan, Burner, some kind of spoon/spatula): Ground beef, bag of frozen mixed veggies.
    More Flexible Version(Requires above, plus... A KNIFE!!!): Meat of your choice, chopped into bite-sized chunks, veggies of your choice, cut up into suitable size pieces. Use whatever spices you like.

    This is my default/go-to dinner when I don't have a lot of time.

    Steak: hot pan, 5 mins per side (or less)
    Veggies: 375 oven, toss with olive oil and salt, stick in oven for 30+ minutes
    Whole chicken: 350 oven on rack in pan for 1-1.5 hours (depending on size).
    350 oven on rack works for most large cuts of meat, time will depend on animal and size, there are basic rules of how many minutes per lb, google should know.
