Hey everyone! I know I missed a few weeks of my menu plans… and this one is going up very late on a Monday night…
I try to stay on top of my blog, but honestly life is so chaotic these days it often takes a back seat. My priorities are my family, my fitness, my paid work, and then my blog… I’ve realized over the last few months that I really need to focus more on my boys and my health. In order to do that, something has to give. I won’t be absent, and I’m doing lots on YouTube these days too.
What I’m Loving Right Now:
Lemon and Apple Cider Vinegar in warm water to start my day every single day.
The first time I tried essential oil in my water I hated it. However, I just started using Young Living Essential Oils and I’m sold on taste alone! This tastes amazing! Using oil in place of actual lemon not only has all the benefits of detoxing your body and boosting your immune system, but also since it is cold pressed from the rinds which basically means that they aren’t acidic so you will not have to worry about hurting the enamel on your teeth from drinking lemon water. (They do however, dissolve petro-chemicals so you should never use citrus oil in a plastic glass.) The ACV (apple cider vinegar) is also detoxing, helps your body use fat instead of storing it (aka good for weight loss), and supports healthy blood sugars.
Next up after my workout in the am I’m juicing. I LOVE this easy and basic green juice recipe!
Then I have some eggs and sausage or bacon with fruit OR if I’m crunched for time I’ve been turning to my new favorite snack and breakfast food homemade paleo granola. (Stay tuned for the recipe!!)
Finally – this is my GO-TO dinner lately. In the past it was chicken sausage, and I’m still loving that, but for some reason I can’t get over this. I think it may be the rosemary in the Turkey burger combined with the caramelized onions/mushrooms.
I know you can’t see it… But there is the most delicious Trader Joes rosemary turkey burger underneath some caramelized onions, mushrooms, avocado, and tomatoes. Served with sweet potato wedges on the side.
Anyways… You probably just came for the menu plan…
Weekly Paleo Menu Plan!
Also since I’ve been asked this a few times before…
No my husband or son are not paleo. However they eat what I cook. Occasionally I will add cheese to their plates, or cook white potatoes for my husband. That said, we are likely going to transition my son to gluten-free/paleo for some health stuff he’s dealing with.
What’s on your menu plan this week?
As always, if something in my menu plan looks appealing to you, please let me know in the comments.
