Meal Plan Saturday–3/31/2012

I am going to try to consistently post my meal plan for the week.  Mostly because I do better when I make a plan and posting holds me accountable for my plan.Now the plan may change, but having one in place helps keep me sane during dinner time.  It also keeps us from hitting dinner time and reverting to bad habits.  All of these recipes are Paleo/Whole 30 friendly with the exception of some added natural sugar here or there.  And just because I post the meal plan, doesn’t mean I’m going to post the recipe for it.  I am cooking out of two cookbooks that I am fairly pleased with.  Don’t want to step on any toes and post copyrighted material, but if the recipes happen to appear on their web sites, I will happily link them Smile.

Saturday – Paleo Pad Thai

Sunday – The Best Chicken You Will Ever Eat.  Ever with Coconut Almond Green Beans

Monday – Cottage-Flower Pie (w/ beef – and omitting the tomato sauce)

Tuesday – Leftover Chicken

Wednesday – Meat and Spinach Muffins

Thursday – Salmon a L’Afrique du Nord – I have no recipe

Friday – Leftover Muffins.

So that’s our dinner plan.  I’m going to make up a batch of Eat Like a Dinosaur’s Chicken Nuggets (by the Paleo Parents) to have on hand unless something comes up as well as prep some sweet potatoes to make fries.  The kids like to have something “fun” at home sometimes and Wednesday is a long day so that’s usually the day we do that sort of meal.  They love it.

Lunches will consist of Chicken and Tuna Salad with Celery, Apples and Avocado.  Probably will add some Almond Butter to that mix of things.  Anyway that’s the plan.  And at least I have one Smile


I’m also very thankful for my amazing and supportive friends right now.  Life gets tough, but that doesn’t mean I have to give up.  I know what great feels like – I want to get back there Smile
