Our family has been loving summer and enjoying more outdoor activity. With summer comes barbecuing, eating on the deck and spending time with our family and friends. Just this past weekend we were out grilling burgers, which is definitely a super simple summertime favorite (recipe below!).

Here in our family, we have adopted a Paleo lifestyle because it makes us feel our best. Along with unprocessed foods, leafy greens, vegetables, nuts, and some fruit, we focus on eating grass-fed meat, pastured free-range poultry and wild-caught fish. This may sound high maintenance, but I have two secrets to making this lifestyle super easy…

Two Secrets to an Easy Paleo Lifestyle


Secret #1: We order from Butcher Box

Once you snag the offer, try this super simple recipe for tasty, clean burgers:

Many burger recipes use bread crumbs (not paleo friendly) or prepackaged seasonings with unfriendly ingredients (sugar, corn starch, and “natural flavor”).

If you’re looking for a little more than just salt and pepper, I recommend the Mamma Mia! brand’s Garlic Ranch seasoning. It’s gluten free with no refined sugar and only three ingredients: California Garlic, Onion, Sea Salt.

Mix the seasoning into the ground meat (try ground turkey or ground chicken for a lean option) and form into patties or simply sprinkle it on both sides of pre-made patties. Pre-heat the grill and grill on medium high heat. Cooking time will vary depending on your choice of meat. For ground beef, 5 minutes on one side and 3 minutes on the other should give you medium doneness. I usually swap out the buns for lettuce, and enjoy topping with slices of avocado.

I found the seasoning in Whole Foods, but it is also available to purchase online. You can use discount code simpleandwell to save 25% on any Mamma Mia products.

Secret #2: We meal plan with Real Plans

As a busy Mom who prepares a lot of home cooked food, I like to pre-plan meals. To make this easy and efficient, I subscribe to a program called Real Plans.Real Plans is a meal planning service that you can use to quickly find Whole 30, Paleo and/or Keto-friendly recipes. It will also create a weekly menu and a grocery shopping list for you! It is very user friendly and it is truly an affordable option to help you make healthy home cooking a priority for you and your family.
