Question Paleo w/o stove or microwave

I have been strictly following the paleo diet successfully for about two weeks and intend to continue. However, I will soon be in a living situation where I do not have access to a microwave or a stove, but do have a refrigerator.

I am not so concerned about the fruits, veggies, and nuts/seeds obviously, but does anyone have some good suggestions for variety in my meats and ways of preparing them? I know canned tuna will have to be on the list and maybe some deli meats, but I'm lost for thought after that. I understand that the paleo diet calls for unprocessed meat, but I may have to bite the bullet on this one for the next few months. I'm on a fairly tight budget as well so please keep this in mind.

I am assuming you have access to a plug. If that is the case buy a crockpot and this grill. You can cook almost anything with those. I have one and it is top notch (and a lot bigger than it looks), well worth the money.

Thanks all. I'm pretty sure I can make one of those work.

I just saw how cheap those Foreman grills are... Why don't I have one?



I'll cook pretty much anything that doesn't involve and oven... Grilling, jerky dehydrating, nut butter mixing, microwave eggs... I don't even know why I avoid the oven so much.

Foremans are about 20$ these days for the small ones without bells and whistles! Crockpots too! Both are worthwhile purchases. Crockpots are amazing as you can prep food the night before, plug in in the morning and voila a fresh aroma and hot cooked food when ya come home! And only 1 thing to wash.

I have been putting in poultry or some sort of meat with veggies, herbs and s/t even coconut milk! YUM
