This Week’s Meals: 2/22-26

We are back home from a busy family filled weekend and I’ve got a whole other week of meals for you below and they are all whole30 approved!! It consists of everything that I ate last week for lunches and dinner’s Monday through Friday.

But first, I have to share with you all the loving that went on this weekend. We know how fast Harper is going to grow up so we are trying to take advantage of every opportunity we have to go see family. This weekend was spent with Luke’s Memaw and parents but also included a Face Time to my parents because we couldn’t leave them out!

Sweet times.

Ok, now for what I ate last week. I hope you can use this for some meal prepping inspiration in your own kitchen this week (grab my FREE tips on meal prepping handout).  If I had to pick a favorite recipe from this week’s line up, it would definitely be the paleo shepherds pie. This was a new recipe that I tried the week before and it is so good! The reaction I got from my husband was “Dang, you seriously could make this EVERY week!”

My husband and I started a strict nutrition cleanse two weeks ago just to help ourselves get back on track and be more disciplined in what we are eating after the last crazy couple of months of figuring out this whole parenting thing. I by no means am restricting myself on how much I am eating since I am nursing, just getting rid of the junk. Even if I wasn’t nursing, I never restrict myself on how much I am eating. If I’m hungry, I eat. Period. When you eat good clean balanced meals and snacks throughout the day, your body tells you when you are hungry and when you are full and you should listen to those cues. Counting calories is just depressing and not realistic to do every single day, just eat real food people!!

 

Monday

Lunch: Paleo Tacos with a side of sauteed zucchini and squash

*I had a picture of this but then I got a new phone and it just seemed like too much work to transfer the pics over just for this blog. Sorry. They looked similar to this:

I used our deer meat for the taco meat and this simple recipe for the seasoning:

  • 1 T. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

I served my tacos in large romaine letuce leaves, and topped them with salsa (look for no sugar in ingredients for whole30) and avocado slices.

This makes for a super simple dinner or lunch if you cook all your meat at the beginning of the week! You could add whatever fixings you like.

Dinner: Paleo Shepherds Pie 

*I had a picture of this too, but of course it was also on my old phone. Click on the link to grab the recipe and see a pic of it. Her pic is better than mine was anyways! This was my favorite new recipe this week!!

Tuesday

Lunch: Leftover Tacos and sauteed veggies

Dinner: Leftover Paleo Shepherds Pie

*I’m a big fag of leftovers. Not having to cook and do dishes every night is amazing. If your life is busy and you have lots of stuff going on in the evenings, then you probably should get used to making large batches of food and eating leftovers. It’s one of the most convenient ways to eat healthy throughout the week.

Wednesday

Lunch: Paleo Tuna Salad with a side of baby carrots

For the tuna salad, mix all of this together and store in the fridge for up to a week to make 4 servings:

  • 2, 5 oz. cans of tuna (I buy Wild Planet wild caught tuna)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 4 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • black pepper/salt to taste
  • 2 T. olive oil

Dinner: More Leftover Shepherds Pie

*I doubled this recipe to make it last three meals (6 servings) for just two of us. We also eat pretty large portions so it might last longer for others.

Thursday

Lunch: Leftover tuna salad with a side of baby carrots

Dinner: Paleo Slow Cooker Chili

*This is an old favorite that I make regularly throughout the fall/winter months. It typically lasts 3-4 meals (6-8 servings) for the two of us.

Friday

Lunch: Leftover tuna salad with a side of baby carrots

Dinner: Pork Loin Roast with roasted potatoes and carrots, green beans and some fresh slices of strawberries, grapes and bananas for dessert

*We were at Luke’s “Mema’s” house Friday night so I don’t have a recipe for the Pork Loin Roast. She was so sweet to accomodate to our nutritional needs. It was perfect.

Now pick one or a couple of these recipes and get to cookin’ this week!!!
