What’s For Dinner?

This chart always makes me chuckle — The Paleo Diet in a nutshell.  Jokes aside, I know that meal planning can seem super time consuming and overwhelming and I get asked quite a bit how I do it. So tomorrow I’m going to break down how I get 10-12 hot meals on the table each week while working dealing with normal busy life.

You know, How To Meal Plan LIKE A BOSS.

In the meantime, let’s get to the good stuff — what’s going on the table this week:


Lunch:  Pioneer Woman’s Brisket (adapted for the crockpot – 12 hrs on low — which I am cooking today) + Buttery Herbed Spaghetti Squash

Dinner: AndreAnna’s Asian Beef and Fried Cauliflower Rice Bowls (a perennial favorite around here)


Lunch:  Stovetop Carnitas + Sauteed Squash + Onions

Dinner: Grilled Marinated Flank Steak, Grilled Asparagus + Salad


Lunch: Greek Salad with Gyro flavored Ground Beef (inspired by my AMAZING lunch last week with Sarah

Dinner: Turkey Taco Burgers with Homemade Guacamole + Roasted Carrots + Onions


Lunch:  Grilled Sausages and Leftover Veggies/Salad

Dinner: Breakfast For Dinner!  (To Be Determined, but I’m thinking it will involve sun-dried tomatoes and eggs for sure!)


Lunch:  Grilled Chicken Thighs + Hot Bacon + Cabbage Slaw (recipe coming soon — hot damn, it is easy and delicious!)

Dinner: Southwest Burgers + Sweet Potato Fries + Salad


Lunch:  Paleo Orange Chicken + Steamed Broccoli

Dinner:  Italian Beef Stew


Hit up the grocery store, lather, rinse, repeat.


So…watcha cookin’ this week, friends?  Any new recipes you are excited about?

    Oh I LOVE lamb! But I’m always scared to cook it at home. You’ll have to let me know how the lamb shanks turn out, they looks delicious! Guy Fieri grilled a leg of lamb this weekend on Food Network that looked sort of manageable. Maybe I will get brave next week. 🙂

    (And yep — links worked!)

    Confession…I have been one meal shy of miserable for weeks now, following my diet for gestational diabetes, which severely limits all carbs. I find it both severe and limiting, but fried cauliflower rice sounds amazing! Maybe I’ll try something spicy for the beef (no honey).

    • Holly says:

      Can you use agave instead of honey or no sugar subs at all? The Fried Rice is seriously delish. Plus there are a million variations — Cilantro Rice, Spanish Rice — whatever kind of rice you miss, cauliflower makes a damn good substitute!
