What’s For Dinner?

So this week we are back to a more strict Paleo menu. This means a whole lot of:

A quick note about why I generally don’t include breakfast in my menus, since a reader asked. It is for a few reasons:

*I enjoy dinner leftovers for breakfast sometimes
*I make smoothies on occasion
*It’s generally a game time decision
*If I’m not working out I generally do a bit of Intermittent Fasting in the morning since I eat lunch around 11:30 usually

Intermittent Fasting (which for me means skipping the traditional breakfast) usually works phenomenally when I am not eating sugar. (I ALWAYS eat breakfast post workout on the mornings I CrossFit though, don’t worry!)

Here is a little background on it (if you’re interested) just so you don’t think I’m skipping meals willy-nilly. There is actually some rhyme + reason behind it and it generally works well when my blood sugar is super stable (ie: when I’m eating a pretty strict Primal/Paleo diet).

But having the sugar creep back in over the past few weeks means I’m very hungry in the morning and then in addition when I don’t plan breakfast I inevitably do the “What’s lurking around the office that I can eat?” scavenge and well, obviously this has been bad news lately. While I may IF a bit this week, I’ve also stocked up on some eggs to hard boil, some berries and some bacon I’ve cooked for easy grabbing, so I may work some breakfast in this week a little more since I’m getting back on the wagon. We’ll see.

Anyway, here’s what we’re eating in our neck of the woods:

Lunch: Turkey Cobb Salads with Homemade Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Dinner: Paleo Orange Chicken (made extra spicy!) + Roasted Garlic Broccoli + Salad

Lunch: Thai Curry and Coconut Butternut Squash Soup
Dinner: Turkey Burgers (TBD — prob something that goes with avocado) + Balsamic Brussels Sprouts + Salad

Lunch: Turkey Chili with fixins!
Dinner: Paleo Chicken Piccata + Steamed Broccoli + Salad (Yeah, we have a metric ton of broccoli in the fridge this week!)

Lunch: Spinach Salad with Eggs and Bacon + Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Dinner: Mini Meatloaves + Cauliflower mash + Salad

Lunch: Greek Salads w/ Sarah at Petra (I think it’s Friday, regardless it is one day this week! YAY!)
Dinner: CrossFit Holiday Party — Woot!

Lunch: Brunch
Dinner: Paleo General’s Chicken with Cauliflower Fried Rice
