New to Paleo?

New to the Paleo way of eating?

Relax and settle in for a minute because this page will tell you what it’s all about.

Paleo describes a lifestyle and way-of-eating (so much more than a restrictive or crazy fad diet) based on eating:

  • plenty of protein
  • lots of fruits and veggies &
  • a good amount of healthy fats.

That’s it! Simple, right?


Sure, some folks expand on the word Paleo by talking about ancestral health and evolution, but here at SEP, the focus is on foods that make you more healthy and are anti-inflammatory in nature.

Typically, most everyone who eats Paleo follows a gluten-, legume-, and dairy-free template with an emphasis on foods that are as whole and unprocessed as possible.

I know that when you’re first starting out, things can be confusing! I started eating Paleo back in January 2010, and it took some time to get comfortable with how to plan and cook some awesome food. Even though I love to create recipes in the kitchen, I still like to keep it simple and thus, Stupid Easy Paleo was born.

    • Thank you Frank! The tough part about Paleo is that it means so many different things to so many people. Juicing to get in those extra fruits and veggies is a great way to go. Do you have any suggestions for what to do with the pulp? I’ve eaten it but it’s usually not super appealing in terms of consistency (though I know it’s good for me).

  1. I have been trying Paleo for 2 months now and it has been very hard for me. I still crave the carbs (bread) and the sweets. I would say I’m doing it 50% but my goal is to be able to do go strict Paleo!

    • Hi Tessa! Are you still consuming any bread, pasta, etc or tons of fruit? In my personal experience, when I eat dried fruit, for example, it tends to make me crave sugar (much more than say, the occasional piece of fresh fruit). Keep up the good work!!

  2. Great article! Thank you! I’ll take any advice, I start my “Paleo journey” tomorrow! Went grocery shopping today and I’m all set!

  3. I just stumbled upon your website and I’m seriously considering starting a Paleo diet. However, I’m mostly afraid of snack time. That is when I crave carbs and sugar the most. Do you have any suggestion for great filling snacks?

    • Hi there! A lot of people (including myself) experience bloating when they consume dairy or gluten. One thing to try is eliminating all dairy and gluten for 30 days – which will give your gut lining a chance to start repairing itself – and see if it helps.

  4. Hello there! Thank you for giving me your input to eliminate gluten and diary contained food that gives me a sick depressing bloated feeling! Can u please mail me options that I can try for a meal or snack, or a simplified pattern to follow for 30 days.
