Weekly Menu



This past week I was lucky enough to hear the Michael Rutherford give a nutrition presentation.  Nothing like a coach to give it to you straight.  It was great.  I am so thankful that my husband's employer supports paleo living and provided the opportunity for so many people to hear life changing information.  That may sound trite, but I mean it!

I shopped at Hy-Vee, Costco, and Aldi for this week.

Breakfasts:
eggs w/ fruit or salsa (most days!)
maybe use this muffin recipe for some homemade pumpkin donuts (on our day off)
coffee, raw milk

Lunches:
best chicken ever
salami & goat cheese
celery & almond butter
carrots
olives
apples, bananas, clementines, strawberries, pineapple

School Snacks:
pirate's booty
fruit leather

Dinners:
Sunday - crispy carnitas
Monday - dinner w/ friends, taking homemade BBQ meatballs (the sauce is not paleo, but the balls are)
Tuesday - chicken marsala skillet, roasted broccoli
Wednesday - zucchini spaghetti with meat sauce* (my 3 year old's favorite meal)
Thursday - beanless chili (maybe try this chocolate chili?)
Friday - hamburgers, sweet potato fries
Saturday - shawarma chicken salad

*So, not a lot of links this week.  I pretty much wing it on these dinners.  I do want to share my favorite  EASY meaty tomato sauce with you, though... I plan to be back early in the week with that.

And some randomness to start off your week:

Clearance jewelry at Target makes me happy.  I rarely shop for myself, so $4 earrings are special.  See, I even have to legitimize it with that disclaimer...

And while I do not think fame in and of itself is something to aspire to, I still like this song: Hall of Fame.  Kinda similar to The Fighter which I've liked for awhile, too.  And Carry On.  And Try.  (I like Pink.  Watch at your own risk).  Notice a theme?  Suck it up, keep going, keep your chin up - which is what I need to hear a lot :)  Not because my life is hard, but just because.  What about you?

Progress Report: I did my workouts 4 days last week.  They were short.  As in 20, 12, 15, and 30 minutes.  But I did something!

Homework time now.

Wishing you a great start to your week!
