    Default Transitioning to a more paleo diet

    So... I would love for my family to transition to a more paleo type diet and am struggling as to how I start! We tend to eat a lot of bread/pasta and rice in our house (as a filler) so I would love some tips on how to slowly cut those things out.

    I am ace at meal planning and love to do it, I am just struggling to find tried and tested kid friendly paleo meals (breakfast, lunch - including lunch box ideas, dinner, snacks) that I can use to meal plan that wont get wasted! Any hints/tips a copy of anyone elses meal plan? and ideas are appreciated

    Ps: we are a family of 4 (soon to be 5) with a 7yo and a 2yo.

    We arent strict Paleo but i trying to cut down on grains. I do Cauliflour rice and zucchini noodles to replace rice and pasta.

    We aren't Paleo but I do limit wheat and we don't eat processed foods at home so I do have some good Paleo meals /snacks - we do still eat quinoa and rice and cheese and legumes and I substitute breadcrumbs with rice crumbs or quinoa crumbs and you can substitute flour with coconut flour I've started collecting a heap of great recipes for lunch box ideas so a few good ones are:

    Do you do anything special with the cauliflower/zuchinni - like seasoning? How is it cooked?

    Blitz cauliflower in blender and then cook with some coconut oil and season with salt and pepper. Yummo.

    Zucchini is a similar concept I think.

    If you'd like to buy a cookbook, I highly recommend Pete Evans Family Food. So far the recipes I've tried have been easy and delicious!

    @Teenz, i have that book but nothing inspires me from it and everything I look at has either so many ingredients/steps its hard to make the transition with limited time and kids :/

    I will make an effort though, just want simple easy recipes kids will eat too. i am going to make chicken soup/bone broth today in my slow cooker

    What about basic meat & veg/ meat & salad type dinners? It doesnt have to be complicated neals with expensive ingredients. We would have, for example, an omlettw for brekkie, grilled chicken salad for lunch, and salmon/ chicken drumsticks/ some kind of meat with steamed veggies or assorted salads for dinner - like a tossed salad, coleslaw, etc. Fruit or dip with veggies for snacks.
