This week will be a huge learning curve for me figuring out how to cook without grains, legumes and carbs. We eat a lot of noodles, rice and bread so this will be interesting but I’m excited. You can read why we are attempting the Paleo diet here
I scoured the internet for Paleo menu plans, recipes and shopping lists only to get completely overwhelmed. So instead of using some of the more complex Paleo recipes out there, I’m going to use this matrix and will cook mostly simple meals this first week.
Monday–this is our last non-paleo day and I’ll be using ingredients we have on hand to make a tofu, bok choy, noodle stir fry.
Tuesday–Meatloaf and green beans
Thursday–Fish (probably salmon) and sweet potatoes
Friday–Baked Chicken and veggies
Sunday–Meatballs and spaghetti squash
Breakfasts: eggs, bacon, leftovers, fruits and yogurt, smoothies
Lunches: Tuna salad, egg salad, shrimp on salad, veggie platters,
Snacks: Nuts, dried fruit, veggies, fruit
Whole fryer chicken
Fresh herbs (basil, oregano, rosemary)
