Get the protein punch of a deli sandwich without all the bread. You can knock these rollups out in seconds and they really hit the spot. Primal tip: when hunting for deli meats at the grocery, look for nitrate-free, minimally processed meats, or make your own deli meat at home and slice it super thin!
- 3-6 slices of your favorite deli meats (depending on the size of the slices, or around 3 oz total): ham, turkey, salami, chicken, roast beef, etc.
- 1 slice or 3 oz cheese of your choice, cut into thirds
- Optional: avocado, tomato, leaf lettuce, onion, salt, pepper, and any of your favorite veggies, herbs, or seasonings
- Lay meat slices out side by side, or use leaf lettuce as a “wrap.”
- Place a piece of cheese in the center of each meat.
- Add any optional ingredients.
- Roll up into finger friendly snacks.

Leslie Klenke is the author of Paleo Girl. This powerful book serves as a “junior version” of The Primal Blueprint, focusing on the unique needs of teenage girls that have been Primal alongside their parents for years, or that are new to the lifestyle altogether. Leslie helps empower a new generation of healthy and vibrant teens by explaining the benefits of the 10 Primal Blueprint laws, a sensible education about puberty and how a Primal lifestyle can make for a smooth transition into adulthood, and some really powerful teen success stories from girls that have taken control of their lives at an early age.
After living a Primal lifestyle for three years, Leslie met Mark Sisson (the founder of the Primal movement and author of The Primal Blueprint) at PrimalCon Oxnard in April of 2013. She kept in touch with Mark and enthusiastically pitched her idea for Paleo Girl a month later. It was then that she finally found a way to merge her passions of art and health: proudly writing, designing and shooting much of the photography for Paleo Girl.
When Leslie isn’t busy writing or designing, she’s in her home studio recoding various voiceover projects. She also enjoys spending time with her husband, AJ Wilson, and their two goofy Boston Terriers, Olie and Harlow. Leslie runs a popular Instagram account @LeslieKlenke that features photos and 15-second videos of Primal recipes. She has plans to write many more health books (starting with Paleo Guy, the brother to Paleo Girl), and she continuously seeks ways to pay it forward and help others see the magic she sees in this world.
