I feel compelled today to talk about the inevitable…I am a teacher and another September is staring me down as we speak, and that means my schedule changes drastically.
I’ve been living the Paleo lifestyle for about 4 weeks now, and through trial and error, have found out what really works for my family’s needs and lifestyle. So this post is a true round up of what I will personally be cooking up to get through the busy week.
These are sites/recipes that have become a mainstay in my rotation for simplicity and necessity. Basically, I need these in my life and these recipes were integral in my last few weeks. Check out Pinterest—I’m always pinning new ideas!
Dairy Free Frittata with Heirloom Tomatoes by Bravo for Paleo
Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Halves by Marin Mama Cooks
Emergency Meatballs by Stupid Easy Paleo
Fool Proof Homemade Paleo Mayo by The Healthy Foodie
In addition to those resources, I also do (and will continue to do) the following:
1. Roast a full pan of broccoli
2. Roast a full pan of cauliflower
3. Bake 4 pounds of chicken thighs
4. Bake 4 pounds of chicken breasts
These are some of the items on my weekly shopping list. Some make my life so much more convenient, and some just make everything that much more yummy!
√ Organic, pre-washed, packaged kale/baby spinach mix
√ Pre-spiralized zucchini
√ 2- packages grape tomatoes
√ slivered almonds
√ golden raisins
√ all the avocado!
*I was hardboiling a dozen eggs, but with the frittata I don’t think I’ll need them…plus they were a major pain to peel!
*I will also more than likely cook up red meat once a week depending on what I see in my store.
*I don’t prep everything in one day, but instead like to stagger my weekly meal prep over the course of a few days–like Sunday, Monday, Tuesday–then I should be set for the remainder of the week. I hope to give you more on that as I put it into strict practice this September!
