Weekly Grain & Dairy Free Meal Plan – Dec 10th 2014

meal plan

*After a week off, I am back with my weekly meal plan!

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.

Helpful Tips:

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 boil bone-in chicken once a week and then make homemade chicken stock with the carcass. That way I have homemade chicken stock (which is SO much healthier than the store-bought stuff) to use in recipes and shredded chicken all week long in my fridge for salads, which we eat a lot of for lunch. HERE is my recipe 🙂

 

Wednesday-

Hot Wing Wings. I make these every week after getting groceries. They are super easy to make and yummy after being gone all day. I serve them with Ranch dip and veggies. Then, I send the leftover veggies and dip in my kids lunchboxes the next day 🙂

 

Thursday-

White Chicken Chili with Paleo Cornbread

 

Friday-

Chicken Tenders. The last time I made my baked chicken tenders, they didn’t turn out the way they have in the past, so I’m going to tweak the recipe to ensure a crispy coating every time. But my fried chicken tenders are always perfect! I’m going to serve my chicken tenders with Glazed Carrots

 

Saturday

We are going to eat at my cousins house on Saturday, but hamburgers with Paleo Hamburger buns would be a good option!

 

Sunday

Pizza Night! I either use THIS Paleo Pizza Crust, THIS Almond Flour Yeast Raised Crust, or a buy Frozen Gluten Free Pizza:)

 

Monday

Pork Tenderloin With Cranberry Sauce and Mock Mashed Potatoes

 

Tuesday

Tilapia with Green Beans and Dinner Rolls

 

Snacks & Desserts

Fudgy Paleo Brownies

Paleo Fudge

Cinnamon Rolls

 

*To save money, I go to Sprouts on Double Ad Wednesdays, I use the Target Red Card which saves me 5%, and I use the Target Cartwheel app for coupons. All of this saves me from 20 to 30 dollars a week!!!

*I know Wednesday is kind of a weird day to publish a weekly meal plan, but it’s the day I plan our meals and get groceries :)

    Is there a way to get your newsletters but opt out of the meal plans? I’m just not ever going to be a ‘meal plan’ kind of person. I go by what is on sale, what is free (garden produce, fruit, foraging nuts, etc.), and how I feel. I don’t have a big family to cook for. I really am not interested in meal plans. But. I love your recipes. Is there a way to just opt out of the meal plans and get the rest? TIA

    • Hi Karen! I’m sorry but I don’t know how to opt you out of the meal plans 🙁 If I was more computer savvy I might be able to figure it out, but right now I have it so every new post gets sent out and that’s the only way I know how to do it 🙁 When you get my e-mails, the recipe name should be on the subject line so you would know which ones are the meal plans and just delete them without having to open it. Sorry again!

    Hi Cassidy, I was just wondering if you know who & why someone came up with the term “Leaky Gut”. I think it was probably a guy, but you never know. I definitely think it was someone who didn’t feel good. Such an odd phrase don’t you think?

    Thanks for the helpful shortcut hints.

    • Yeah, I don’t know where the term “Leaky Gut” came from but it’s pretty funny, it doesn’t sound very scientific for sure!!!
