it’s no secret i like planning. ask my friends.
so making meal plans is actually right up my alley. or the aisle. the grocery aisle. get it…lame jokes. i know.
anyway. i’ve been planning my weekly meals since i started this journey.
i don’t expect you to follow this 100%. that would be completely insane. you are you. and i am me. and we are two different people. but i can assume that you would use this as a guideline. because that is why i am doing this. to help you out with your paleo / whole30 journey.
some things i think about when sitting down to plan are:
1. meals i won’t be eating at home (what days do i have plans / events / happy hours, etc.)
2. what i’m feeling for the week (mexican, fish, pork, etc.)
3. what days will i cook
4. what’s in season
then i just make shit up.
so that is where these meal plans come in. i typically cook 3-4 meals a week and just eat leftovers. which i used to hate. but then i realized washing dishes every single meal is worse. so then i learned to love leftovers.
whit eats paleo. version 1.
we are starting easy peasy. you got this.
Each meal makes 3 portions. So you decide how you want to break them up.
For breakfast i added in some eggs, spinach, and peppers to your grocery list to scramble each morning. top it with some avocado (about a quarter) and you’ll be set until your lunch!
