smoothies with raw milk
apples, strawberries, kiwi
Sunday & Monday - primal BBQ meatballs, roasted green beans
Tuesday - (cooking gluten-free for my Bible study girls) avocado salsa and organic corn tortilla chips, grilled Hawaiian chicken and bell pepper kabobs (omit sugar), sweet potatoes, Dole pineapple whips
Wednesday & Thursday - taco lettuce wraps
Friday - sticky chicken in the crock pot, sweet potatoes, green beans
Saturday - spicy chicken soup.
I love chicken tortilla soup. I make it with homemade stock and extra veggies (no beans, corn, or cream). If there are any leftover chips from Tuesday, we may use those as topping, along with avocado, real sour cream, and cheese :)
We will be enjoying some Tillamook cheese this week, being more primal than paleo.
Notes from last week's menu:
Some additional meals we made last week include what I call goulash (ground turkey, onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms sautéed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Italian season, garlic, salt, and pepper) -it was yum- and some roasted zucchini under the broiler stuffed with canned salmon, spices, and topped with tomato slices. Thought I would mention them since they were super easy, cheap, and perfectly paleo!
In other news, we were talking about the rise in food allergies around the lunch table at work last week. If you like to learn about this sort of thing, check this out. I've read her book and found it very enlightening.
The good thing is, if you are eating paleo, you are already avoiding the majority of those genetically-modified dangers.
It is getting to end-of-the-semester-crunch-time around here... I have an exam this week and next. I'm SO ready for SUMMER!!!! Have a great week!
