Paleo Month: The Rest of Week One (Minus the Weekend)

Share it Please
I meant to post on Wednesday. Obviously that didn't happen. But I have a very good excuse! I was finishing up a speech for English and it took up most of my day. Plus I was kinda stressed out, so, yeah- that was why I didn't post.

Okay, onto the good stuff. Since I'm a few days behind on posting what I ate each day during week one of our Paleo month, I'll just give you the whole menu now. Why am I doing this? Because maybe the curious reader out there wants to give Paleo a shot and needs somewhere to start. Or maybe you're just struggling with what to make for dinner. Whatever the case may be, I hope you benefit somehow from this post. Even if it's a few weeks or months from now.

By the way, I failed at taking pictures. When something yummy is put in front of me, I hardly want to stop and take pictures! I hope you can sympathize with me. I also apologize in advance for all the links. But I wanted to give credit to the people who came up with such amazing food!

To see what I ate on Day One visit this post.

Day Two:

Breakfast: Porridge with some cinnamon honey, blueberries, and walnuts

Lunch: Mulligatawny soup (this soup has diced chicken breast, carrots, chicken broth, curry, we added cabbage, and coconut milk stirred in), and lots of raw veggies on the side

Dinner: Baked butternut squash gnocchi topped with tomato sauce, steak with sautéed onions and mushrooms, and steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, yellow squash, and zucchini

Day Three:

Breakfast: Butternut squash porridge with cinnamon, honey, blueberries, and almond milk

Lunch: leftover gnocchi, TJ's basil and sun-dried tomato chicken sausage, and vegetables

Dinner: Saffron "rice" (without the saffron) and fish or pork shoulder steaks

Day Four:

Breakfast: Porridge with blueberries, walnuts, and honey

Lunch: Eggy Wrap with mesquite turkey, shredded carrots, Boston lettuce, and Dijon mustard, cucumber and red bell peppers, walnuts and blueberries, and sweet potato chips

Dinner: Curry chicken tenders from TJ's, green beans, and baked sweet potatoes

Day Five: 

Breakfast: TJ's chicken apple sausage, and butternut squash porridge (using sweet potato) with blueberries, walnuts, cinnamon, and almond milk

Lunch: turkey wrapped around a lettuce leaf, carrots, cucumbers, red bell peppers, a Clementine, walnuts, cherries, and golden raisins

Dinner: Turkey chili and grain-free cornbread

 Again, sorry there aren't any pictures. I wish I could remember to take them, but like I said- when food's put in front of me I will start to eat it before I think, "Shoot! I should've taken a picture!" 

Inquiry of the Day:

What was the best thing you ate this week?

The best thing I ate this week was the butternut squash gnocchi. It was delicious!

Tomorrow, a post on starting to revise my novel!



  1. Sounds like you are managing pretty good variety =)
    I think the best thing I ate all week was a falafel salad I made. It was just so tasty.

    1. Everything except for breakfast. lol! I can have the same thing for breakfast every day and never get tired of it. It's a blessing and a curse. ;)

      The falafel salad sounds awesome! Have a great week!

    Oh my goodness! You're writing a novel? Amazing! Good luck with, um, revising it!!!
    Best thing I ate this, it was probably a peanut butter and oreo sandwich. It was sort of weird because the day after I ate it, CCK had a post on Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreos! Weird how things happen...:)

    1. Yeah, I looked at your blog and saw you wrote, too. Am I right? Maybe we can help each other out. You know, be critique partners or something.

      Have a great week and thanks for commenting!

  3. I eat a paleo diet and I'm always looking for new inspiration! THanks for posting. Those gnocchi sound great!!

    1. Your welcome! And the gnocchi were definitely on my "make again in bulk" list. ;)


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
