I generally do my meal planning and grocery shopping on either Friday evenings or Saturdays mornings, but Sundays are always meal prep day at our house. This week’s list was a little overwhelming, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the first few days of this lifestyle (notice I didn’t say diet?) it’s that the days I didn’t plan for are a real drag. I started this in the middle of a busy week and essentially ate the same boring spinach salad twice a day for the first four days. By the time the weekend rolled around I knew I needed to put together one hell of a meal plan if I was going to stay on track. I bought a couple cookbooks, as well as sought out some really stellar paleo blogs (they are way more than I even imagined there would be!) and put together a menu I’m pretty excited about.
Meal Prep List – 5/3/15

Roasted sweet potatoes
Roasted butternut squash
Grilled zucchini and yellow squash
Broccoli and Cauliflower
Baked kale chips
Baked sweet potato chips
Unsweetened coconut yogurt and mixed berry cups
I wish I had gotten more photos! By the time I finished it was so late that I forgot to take them of the last few dishes. I had my hubs taste-testing though and he approved of everything so far. He went to town on the lemon chicken and grilled zucchini. I think that was his favorite. I also passed some on to my in-laws to be tested so I’m sure they’ll be weighing in shortly.
