Meal Plan October 25 – November 1

pea-soup-446557_1280Well, hello.

I’m glad that you’ve decided to volunteer for my evil robot army…oops, I mean, decided to make some food with me! So, these meal plans are left open to the imagination, no two people cook exactly alike. Also, no two people’s lives are exactly the same. I don’t expect everyone to like the same foods as I do and you shouldn’t either.

One thing you’ll notice here is that I have several meals that are staples and rotate them in often. I’m no superhero samurai chef. There is plenty of opportunity for creativity, but time is always a factor and let’s be judicious with our’s. Some of my meals may even seem “too simple,” and that’s because I leave room in them for personalization. I may only list a few ingredients in my morning eggs and bacon, but frequently there is some leftovers from the night before, chopped mushrooms, spinach, whatever veggies are in the fridge that need to be used up.

Transforming your eating/cooking habits from a college student’s to a responsible adult’s is a slllooooww process. that’s’ fine if you don’t have tapioca flour, almond flour, and coconut flour on hand. No big. Just find a worthy substitute with something you do have and when that’s gone, then go out and get that fancy pants bob’s red mill powdery goodness. Again, let’s be judicious with what’s in our kitchen and pantry.

Okay, let’s get this hootenanny started!

Here’s a quick word about the meal plan this week. First, these are the actual meal plans my wife and I make. So, guess what? We’re going out of town this weekend. In the meal plan, you’ll notice some things we decided to eat because we agreed they are good and don’t come often, They’re also not Paleo. That’s okay! We’re being very Paleo this week and next to try to make up for it. We’re flying to our destination and planning to bring food to the airport(frugal and healthy).
