Most of the time, I have the raw materials I need to prepare delicious paleo meals. But sometimes, you've had a long day, or week, and your fridge has only fresh veggies. The last bit of chicken was cooked, the bag of frozen shrimp got used up for lunch, and the one package of hot dogs you have sitting in there just doesn't really float your boat in that moment. What's a paleo to do? If I want to have a filling meal, what's the hierarchy of secondary options to animal protein that will most satisfy the paleo setup?
Since I do include dairy, I have thought that perhaps that's the best option, but sometimes there's not even cheese in the fridge, and I'm curious what other more strict paleo people do. Considering the original paleo humans had to hunt their meat down, I imagine there were numerous times where that protein source wasn't available. In the meanwhile, would they just eat greens and other vegetables, munch on lots of nuts and seeds, or just say "Oh well, looks like I'm fasting for a few days until I can find some animal to kill!"?
