Weekly Menu


When making this menu, I wanted some new, spring-ish ideas for dinner meals.  Finding or thinking of new paleo ideas is more difficult than normal recipes, but I came up with a few.

Notes:
  • Sweet potatoes are a great price at Aldi: 3 lbs. for 99 cents.
  • I need to make some more homemade Italian/Greek dressing.  And perhaps some ranch for the buffalo chicken salad.
  • FYI, for coleslaw, we just use shredded cabbage with the above salad dressing, and a little bit of real sour cream mixed in if we want it creamy.
  • Satuday's supper to finish off last week was BBQ beef & coleslaw.
Now, here's the plan for the coming week...

breakfasts:
eggs & sausage
banana bread
smoothies

lunches:
espinaca dip (gluten-free, non-paleo experiment) and organic corn chips (Sunday treat)
chicken, olive, mozzarella, tomato skewers
egg or tuna salad and crunchy primal crackers
celery & almond butter
apples, pears, strawberries

dinners:
nitrate-free hot dogs, coleslaw, & sweet potatoes
buffalo chicken salad (modified: used this sauce, no bleu cheese) x2
grilled marinated chicken & pineapple skewers (paleo-fy this recipe), sweet potatoes x2
meatza, green beans
salmon burgers & sweet potatoes

dessert:
primal fudge

Check out some more gluten-free recipes, including some paleo ones, at Musings of a Housewife.

Have a great week!
