I always do weekly meal plans after my (wonderful) friend Amanda recommended it to me a few months ago. How did I ever survive not doing them...? It saves time (only one stop at the grocery store per week), money (avoid eating out or ordering in regularly), and you get to plan fun, different and healthy meals all week long. All you need to do is go through the recipes I've already done up for you below, make a list of the ingredients you gotta pick up, and then head to the grocery store!
As promised here, check out my first week's pick of the Paleo Lifestyle Eating Plan. Some recipes I've modified to make it Paleo friendly. I've only done it for 6 nights because there's always one night of the week where we eat out or someone is gracious enough to invite us over for dinner.
Breakfast: I normally have a fruit, spinach, almond milk, coconut water and protein powder smoothie OR eggs. Once in a blue moon I'll do both if I'm really hungry. I get my Lean Fit protein power from Costco for only $29.99.
Lunches: I have a salad with 2 or 3 slices of Natural Selection Turkey Breast (that I buy in bulk at Costco) with some nuts or seeds sprinkled on top OR I have leftovers from the night before.
Monday - Turkey Chilli
Tuesday - Thai Coconut Soup. This soup is seriously amazing! Modifications: I boiled the chicken in water in a separate pot while everything was cooking instead of cooking it in the soup, just to be safe. I also bought half fat coconut milk even though it states not to (for some weird reason).
Wednesday - BBQ steak (whatever cut you prefer) on top of Tomato, Corn & Avocado Salad.
Thursday - Cauliflower Fried Rice. Modifications: I'm going to use chicken breast instead of bacon, but if you're really craving bacon or have some in the fridge that you want to get rid of, go ahead.
Friday - Treat Meal. Anything not deep fried.
Saturday - Ginger Salmon with Grilled Peaches. Haven't made this before, but I know the sweet goes great with salmon. Modifications: I won't use a "salmon steak" because I have some tasty organic salmon fillets that I just bought from Costco.
Snacks - Goji berries (A must and can be found in the bulk section of your grocery store), Nuts and Seeds, Rice Cakes, Hummus & Vegetables, Fruit, Organic Popcorn (Popped on the stove with coconut oil), Dark Chocolate (70% and up).
My fun recipe of the week are these Lemon Coconut No Bake Bites - Too die for and taste like they should be really bad for you! Modifications: I had some hemp & chia seeds around so I rolled them around in those as well.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about the Paleo Lifestyle, please feel completely free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be MORE than happy to help!
Good Luck Ya'll!
