It's 5:30 p.m. and you're finally heading out of the office after a long day. The rain is coming down, and the radio says there are two accidents on your route home. Looks like your normal 15-minute commute is about to become 45. This wasn't how you envisioned your night.

On top of that, you still have to make dinner. But since you follow a Paleo-style approach to eating, simply heating up a precooked meal or grabbing a processed bar is out of the question. You may as well take a detour left into the forest and begin hunting your next meal.

Fortunately, there are many Paleo-friendly meals that can be made in the blink of an eye. Here are four protein-packed options to get you (grass) fed in about 30 minutes!
