I spend a lot of time each week planning our meals, so I decided to go ahead and publish my weekly meal plans for those of you who are interested. While we do not eat Grain Free 100% of the time, when I plan and prepare meals I prefer them to be Grain Free & Mostly Paleo (gluten, grain, dairy, soy, legumes, and refined sugar free) because I believe it’s the best way to heal leaky gut (which my son and I both have) control Hashimotos (an auto-immune thyroid disorder, which I have) and help prevent illnesses and diseases.
I know that changing over to a Paleo lifestyle can be difficult, but to reduce the amount of time you have to spend in the kitchen, here are a few helpful tips:
1) When you get the cutting board out and are cutting up veggies for dinner, go ahead and cut up all of your veggies for the entire week and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to use them. This will make dinners the rest of week a bit easier.
2) I like to make shredded chicken and homemade chicken broth (which is SO much healthier and healing than the store-bought stuff) every week or two to keep in the fridge and use in recipes, I especially use the shredded chicken in salads for lunches during the week HERE is my recipe!
We are going out but I’ve made THIS Tuscan Basil Chicken and it’s great! …Just omit the Parmesan Cheese and add in some extra salt and a bit of nutritional yeast 🙂
Lamb Chops with Acorn Squash (use coconut oil instead of butter and coconut palm sugar instead of brown sugar). Believe it or not I have NEVER eaten lamb! But since it is sale at Sprouts this week, I’m going to give it a try!
