Week 71: Back to Meal Planning

Well, it's been quite awhile since I was able to post a meal plan, but I'm hoping that I'll get my stuff together now for the rest of the year.  It's so hard to get back into the swing of things after having everyone at home for a few weeks.  My hubby took off from 12/14 through the New Year and the kids only went back to school last Tuesday.   So, I am beginning to feel like we have a routine in our house again!  ;)
These are Paleo Chocolate Chip cookies made with almond flour!  Delicious!
I'm not much for New Year's Resolutions.  I sort of gave them up a long time ago, but I do set goals that seem more realistic to my mind.  One of my goals for this year is to curb our diet a lot more towards Paleo meals.  For those of you unfamiliar with this diet, it's a focus on lean meats, veggies and fruits.  No processed foods and also no dairy, grain, legumes).  I am doing well for dinner, but I need to make it work all day long.  We have a challenge starting at the end of January with our CrossFit gym, so we'll be eating carefully and exercising a lot during that 6-week time period.  The prizes are really awesome, so we're going to give it our best shot!

Veering away from my goals, we have a 'Go-Dairy' weekend coming up and the kids are so excited!  Alain is going out of town on a snowboarding trip with his buddies, so in an effort to make his absence 'not so sad' I told the kids we could have food that we can't eat with Daddy around (ie. wheat and dairy).  So, this is not fitting in very well with my Paleo diet, but I'll be making bread and making meals with cheese and sour cream!  Might seem lame for some of you, but this is an exciting adventure in my house!

  1. Can I get your recipie of the Paleo chocolate chip cookies? We are also trying to stick to Paleo meals for dinner. Saturday night we made bunless Cilantro Turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. They were yummy! We used coconut oil to make the fries. I could not believe how good they were. I also made some Paleo brownies with almond flour and coconut oil. They were okay. We also made a hugh pot of paleo minestrone soup. I can't wait to eat it for lunch today! Have a good week!


    1. I'll post the recipe this weekend! I think I need the recipe for the cilantro turkey burgers! Sounds awesome!
