Meal Plan #2!

Round 2.

Hello again. I hope the first week of meal plans gave you guys some ideas and maybe you’ll try it out this week, or maybe you even tried it last week. Who knows?!

Anyways, above is a picture of some ginger cookies (the term “cookies” here is being used very loosely) that I tried to make a Paleo version of. Well, instead of wonderful soft and chewy cookies, I got one crunchy amorphous blob that tasted like a ginger root that got pulled from the coals of last night’s campfire. So, that is to say, that sometimes things don’t work out how we plan them. I’m fine with that. I now know something that doesn’t work. And my wife still loves me. My worth and identify is not found in my baking skills (thank God)! Go out and experiment and don’t be afraid to fail.

I still ate the cookies, btw;)

This week’s meal gets a little hazy on Saturday because of a race I’m participating in (which will be super muddy and super fun). But I hope this gives you some good ideas for the week!

Meal Plan #2!

Monday
Breakfast:
Eggs cooked in ghee and bacon

Lunch:
Leftover split pea soup from the week before

Dinner:
Grilled shrimp skewers with red and green bell pepper and onion.

Tuesday
Breakfast:
Eggs cooked in ghee with the leftover skewers, coffee with coconut oil and grass-fed butter!

Lunch:
Leftover split pea soup(or some other leftovers)

Dinner:
We usually have dinner with our MC this night and all pitch in to bring something. We always bring something paleo(so even if everything else isn’t, we have something to eat!) and it tends to end up some vegetables or a salad.

Wednesday
Breakfast:
Eggs cooked in ghee, monkey cereal (chopped walnuts, banana, chia seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, and almond milk)

Lunch:
Hopefully we still have some leftovers from the night before. If not, I’ll take some cooked taco meat or chicken we have and some spinach and nuts and make a salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Dinner:
Mulligatawny soup! takes just a little tweaking to make Paleo. Nix the rice, switch the flour for arrowroot powder or almond meal, and switch the cream for coconut cream.

Thursday
Breakfast:
Monkey cereal and fruit

Lunch:
Leftover mulligatawny

Dinner:
Southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes

Friday
Breakfast:
Eggs cooked with some leftover sweet potatoes. Just throw them in the  pan with the eggs!

Lunch:
Leftover soup or sweet potato

Dinner:
Steak! And broccoli and mushrooms – I grill the steak, sauté the mushrooms (usually in bacon grease i’ve saved from every other day of the week), and steam the broccoli and serve it with a little ghee or olive oil.

Saturday
Breakfast:
Eggs and steak cooked in ghee, bacon, monkey cereal and maybe a larabar for snack too(I have an obstacle race this morning!)

Lunch:
Most likely a turkey leg from the race or BBQ from close by

Dinner:
Banana pancakes

Sunday
Breakfast:
??

Lunch:
Maybe we’ll spring for a meal out?

Dinner:
Leftover soup/sweet potato
