Weekly Meal Planning – Week of 10/15/12 – Paleo and Whole 30!

by ThePrudentPatron on October 15, 2012


Confession time, although I always tell people in my coupon classes to make one small change at a time, I’m a bit of a jump with both feet kind of girl. Last week I shared with you that I was going to “play around with Paleo” and by day two I decided to do the Whole 30, which to make a bad pun is like Paleo on steroids. The Whole 30 takes out all the flour-like recipes, along with all dairy and alcohol. I’m looking at it as a 30 day jump start to my Paleo eating.

The first week of the Whole 30 was great. I had a couple of rough days in the beginning where my body was withdrawing from the sugar, but overall I feel fantastic, and I love, love, love the food. Every recipe I made last week was a hit with my husband and my kids. I can’t recommend Monday’s salmon recipe enough. My hubby thought it was one of the most delicious dinners I ever made!

This week I doing another week’s worth of Paleo/Whole 30 recipes, but I am going to make a concession for the kiddos who really missed last week’s pizza night. The night I will make one meal for the kids and one for the adults. I am also starting the week with some kid-friendly meatballs!

Here’s This Week’s Meal Plan:


Monday – Sundried Tomato Basil Meatballs with Roasted Asparagus

Tuesday – Pizza and Salad for the kids. Salad and Grilled Chicken Breasts for us.

Wednesday - Steak Lettuce Wraps Tacos

Thursday – Pumpkin and Carrot Soup (This ones a recipe idea floating around in my head. Hopefully it is good!)

Friday –  Almond Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli

SaturdaySalmon with Cherry Tomato Salsa and Asparagus – (Yes again, we loved it!)

Sunday- Leftovers

I finished my second Whole30 on the first of this month – I can’t recommend it highl enough! I’m going to have to try those meatballs soon. One of the keys to successful paleo for me has been planning and prepping extra protein, and those look like a perfect “emergency” meal.

Samantha I was mainly thinking of them as dinner for tonight, but you’re right they would be perfect to keep on hand. I might have to hide them at the back of the fridge. ;)
