Paleo Meal Plan Monday – Week of April 20th

Meal Plan Monday

Going Paleo doesn’t have to mean eating the same things constantly or missing out on your favorite desserts.  This week’s Meal Plan Monday focuses on delicious Paleo recipes that will make your mouth water!

I’m doing great on Paleo still, but had fallen off the meal planning wagon.  In order to keep my budget in check and not be tempted to stray (why are there no Paleo delivery restaurants yet?!?), I’m getting back into the swing of things. This week, I noticed Hy-Vee had pears and spareribs on sale, so I knew I wanted to work both into our meal plan.

As always, I do a complete meal plan (Breakfast, Lunch, Snack ideas, Dinner, and a few desserts), so feel free to skip to the sections you plan.  I HIGHLY recommend PlanToEat.com (free 30-day trial) to compile your recipes for the week, adjust to the number of servings you need, and print your grocery list.


Paleo Breakfast Recipes:

Paleo Breakfast Muffins – I’ll be making a large batch of these to freeze for later too

Breakfast Cookie Dough Balls – The boys will LOVE having cookie dough for breakfast. No need to tell them it’s good for them

Paleo Breakfast Pizza – Pizza for breakfast is one thing I’ve missed, so this will help curb those unhealthy cravings!

Cinnamon Vanilla Paleo Muffins – I LOVE muffins and miss my cinnamon apple muffins, so this should be a big hit.

Paleo Scotch Eggs – I’ve never had Scotch Eggs, but these look delicious!

Twice Baked Breakfast Sweet Potatoes – These are on the menu for breakfast, but I may end up doing them for dinner sometime in the future!

Loaded Paleo Breakfast Hash – I may have to tone this down a little better to get one of my boys to eat it.

MMM-LunchIdeasPaleo Lunch Recipes:

Grilled Cheese on Coconut Flatbread with homemade tomato soup – Have to find a good goat’s cheese for this or maybe some almond cheese!

Cauliflower Crust Stromboli – Lots of different filling options for this!

Prosciutto-wrapped Mini Frittata Muffins – Make a large batch and freeze for later!

Tuna Cucumber Cups – The kids will have a lot of fun helping make these!

Loaded Paleo Nachos – Might do these with beef instead of chicken though.

Paleo Taco Bowls – You can also do this as a skillet.
