I’ve been on a Mediterranean kick lately when it comes to my meal choices. Thankfully we have several paleo-Mediterranean recipes on the blog. To show case these fantastic meal options we’ve put together a menu of delicious recipes.
This menu is perfect for a dinner party or even a themed dinner for the family.
It’s time for back to school and you might be wondering what to pack for lunch, or maybe what to pack your kids for lunch! Not to worry, we’re here to help.
Here’s 5 ideas for box lunches that everyone can enjoy! Not to mention that they’re easy to make and travel well.
Our 5 Box Lunch Ideas:
Mediterranean Gnocchi – The best part about this dish is that it reheats well and can be easily packed into a container, making a complete meal that will fill you up. Try switching up sauces and adding protein for an endless variety of lunch options that everyone will enjoy.
Paleo Smoked Salmon & Bacon Salad– This salad is hearty and delicious. The best part though…it doesn’t have to be re-heated! For a protein and veggie packed lunch, this is your go-to! Again it can easily be packed in a container for on-the-go convenience.
Simple Tuna Wrap– These wraps are delicious and have all the makings for a full rounded meal. Mix your tuna up before hand and bring your wraps on the side, you’ll be all ready to go when it’s meal time.
Paleo Lamb Gyro– While we recommend re-heating this you could absolutely eat it cold as well, we promise it’s just as delicious. Paleo Lamb Gyros are the way to go if you’re looking for a hearty and filling wrap to get you through the day. An added benefit…no utensils needed.
Quick & Fantastic Paleo Cookies– Nothing compliments the perfect lunch like a yummy, delicious cookie. Download a copy of our Quick & Fantastic Paleo Cookies cookbook to find the perfect cookie for you!

Sometimes it’s nice to indulge in a pasta-like meal, and thanks to Cappello’s, it’s now easy for the Paleo Community to do just that.
Cappello’s is a Colorado-based company that specializes in grain-free products. They make delicious Paleo pasta, pizza and cookies and their products are now readily available in most health stores (in the freezer section), as well as in bulk online.
Occasionally I’ll have a craving for a simple Mediterranean meal – the kind I used to indulge in regularly before I began following a Paleo lifestyle – and this recipe always proves to cure my nostalgia…
In a small pot, bring water to the boil.
Add 1/2 pack Cappello’s Gnocchi and boil for about 5 minutes (or until the gnocchi floats to the surface), stirring often.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the tomato, onion and garlic to the saucepan and cook over low heat until the gnocchi is ready to serve.
Drain and plate the gnocchi, then top with the tomato-onion-garlic mix and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
