It’s hard to picture what a Paleo diet is without seeing a list of foods or meals that are based on it. So here’s a sample of a week’s worth on the Paleo diet I got off the Internet. I may keep this in mind next time I go to the grocery store, although I haven’t yet found any difficulty in figuring out foods to eat from my current collection of foods.:

Week 1
