There is nothing better for someone living the paleo lifestlye than cooking on the grill!! Today was a beautiful day! Hubs and I have sort of a Sunday ritual where we sit together in the morning, plan the meals for the week than make a shopping list that pertains to only what we need for the week... thats how we eliminate buying foods that arent part of our weekly meals and we stick to a budget for food.
Our fridge often looks like this before we go shopping...
This is what this weeks "meal plan" looks like:
- Every Weekday Breakfast Hubs: Frittata (that he makes on Sunday and separates for the week)
- Every Weekday Breakfast Sarah: 6 Egg Muffins (I bring 4 to the gym and leave them in the fridge for after my shower before I leave for work. The other 2 are for Thursday and Saturday AM).
- We each have post workout protein shakes, mine in the AM and his in the PM right after our workouts.
*I am only listing dinners, every night we make dinner and we make enough for 4 servings.... two for dinner and two for the next days lunch. We serve food right onto our plates and also into 2 tupperwares for the next day. This eliminates going back for seconds and trying to figure out what to have for lunch the next day.*
Sunday: Jalapeno and Garlic Burgers with "Fancy Sauce," Avocado and Artichoke Salad with Home Made Balsamic Dressing (that is sooooo delish)
Monday: Pork Chops and Rosemary Balsamic Butternut Squash
Tuesday: Spiced Chicken and Spinach
Wednesday: All Natural Chicken Sausage and Spaghetti Squash
Thursday: Tri Tip Steak and Brussel Sprouts
Friday: Fish (we get it that day) and Asparagus
Things change up weekly and when we get bored, but we are pretty happy with the way things work out.
Its a beautiful day!! I will never complain about burgers on the grill!! Bun-less of course!
