Welcome back for another week of my paleo plate! (If you missed last week’s explanation post – you can find it here!)
This week was absolutely CHAOTIC! I pretty much FAILED at taking pictures, and truthfully I didn’t have the best eating week too. Firstly because I spent Sun-Tues sick with a fever and no appetite. I think I pretty much lived on bubble water and crackers… (Totally not Paleo!!) Then I spent the rest of my week playing catch up. I have the hardest time staying Paleo when my week is insane. It seems like no matter how much planning I put in, the temptation of doing what is easiest wins…
I bought a book this week to help me fight the “just do what is easiest” voice in my head!
Paleo Power Lunch: Easy, Filling, & Delicious Workday Meal Strategies is $14.48 on Amazon. So far I really like it!
So what did I eat this week:
*My first day back to real food.
Breakfast: Cashews and a banana.
Lunch: Nitrate free deli turkey and ham, guacamole, strawberries, peppers, plantain chips.
Dinner: Garlic roasted sweet potatoes and green beans (the regular potatoes were for my husband) with lemon chicken (was so hungry I ate my plate before taking a picture!!)
Breakfast: (not shown) coconut milk smoothie.
Lunch: Random and light… Guacamole with salsa, strawberries, snap peas, black olives.
Dinner: Cabbage with carnitas, olives, red peppers, salsa.
Dessert: Liz lovely cookie!
Breakfast: (Not shown) Smoothie made with coconut milk, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and banana.
Lunch: Guacamole and plantain chips, apple slices, and a Tuna/Sweet potato bowl with cherry tomatoes, olives, and olive oil.
Dinner: (Also not shown – told you I stunk at pictures this week!) BLT Salad with sunflower seed and sun dried tomato dressing. (Recipe coming soon!)
