The Paleo Girls blog all started because of Facebook and my iPhone. As soon as I had my new iPhone, I began taking photos of every meal and posting them on Facebook. And lo and behold, people were intrigued by my turkey slices and nuts for breakfast. I reasoned that if everyone could bombard me with the nothingness of their lives (not that I don’t love “being poked” or “having Britney thrown at me”), I could bombard right back – with a purpose. I wanted to put something positive out there in the world (my Facebook world, at least), one healthy meal at a time.
As Shelley and I developed the blog, we realized we had a lot of tasty Paleo recipes to share, and that is what we have been doing the last month for you. And while it seems to be going quite well (I seriously cannot believe the traffic we’ve had on our humble little blog!), I’d like to get back to the original roots on occasion, sharing a full day of Paleo eating. I’m not a gourmet chef, by any means, and you’ll see how easy it is to make simple Paleo meals and good use of leftovers.
So… here’s what I had to eat on Monday…
Breakfast: 5 ounces leftover Turkey Taco meat, topped with Organic Salsa and Guacamole. I often stick to protein & fat for breakfast, and get my veggies in at lunch & dinner. Helps me get going just a bit faster in the morning, and there is also usually a shorter gap of time between breakfast & lunch than there is between lunch & dinner, so it works out great for me.
Lunch: Fresh Spring Mix Salad with Grilled Chicken (grilled with Coconut Oil and 21 Seasoning Salute) and Herb-Pepper Almonds, dressed with Mom’s Salad Dressing, and topped with Fresh Ground Black Pepper. I grilled up 4 chicken breasts Monday morning so that we would have 2 leftovers for Tuesday’s lunch. It’s always smart to plan ahead when you can!
Dinner: Leftover Cilantro-Lime Chicken, Spicy Spaghetti Squash, and Herb-Pepper Almonds
We made 6 chicken thighs for dinner on Sunday night… ate two each with some roasted zucchini
And the two leftover thighs became dinner for Monday night, accompanied by some Spicy Spaghetti Squash. The smaller protein amount was okay for me because I had so much chicken in my salad for lunch. Jake added two hard-boiled eggs to his dinner.
The Spaghetti Squash we cooked was big and left us with some great leftovers as well to eat this week.
I hope this sends a few ideas your way!
Happy eating! Joey
