Introduction to the Paleo Menu
Welcome to the Paleo Once a Month Meals Menu
The Paleo menu debuted January 2013 and quickly became one of our most popular menus. Our very own Kelly talks about her journey into a Paleo lifestyle here. We also have a series on completing a Whole30 and how to incorporate freezer cooking to help you succeed. This menu focuses on environmental stewardship, sustainability meaning grass fed pasture raised meats and eggs, organic and non-GMO foods, often making it more expensive to shop for than the other menus. We do have some tips on how to stick to a budget while eating Paleo.
Types of Food Included on the Paleo Once a Month Meals Menu
The Paleo menu is protein heavy and filled with seasonal fruits and vegetables. You will notice this menu also has to be adapted from other sites more often than the other menus do. What that means is you may see a link that is NOT Paleo compliant but we have made the changes within the recipe card. There will be a limited use of sweeteners in all recipes and any flours used will be Paleo compliant (such as almond flour or coconut flour).
Breakfast Recipes – 3
Making sure to start your day off with proteins and vegetables is very important to a successful Paleo diet. We will have 3 different breakfast options to fill you up and minimize your time in the kitchen.
Lunch Recipes – 4
Lunches will be lighter but full of protein to help you power through the afternoon slump. Recipes will either be served cold or have minimal prep on the stovetop or microwave. If they needed heated, they will be in readily available means that are quick and easy, for example microwaved. This way, whether you are feeding the family at home or preparing a meal at work, you don’t waste the lunch hour in the kitchen for your food to be prepared.
Dinner Recipes – 8
Dinner will be a good variety for you to choose from. Protein sources will be primarily chicken, beef, and pork though there may be an occasional seafood recipe. Each month will incorporate the flavors of seasonal produce as well.
Paleo Once a Month Meals Menu Format
Our Paleo Menu currently uses Google Docs and each menu is adjustable by serving size. You will need to follow the directions in this post about how to customize to the exact number of persons in your household you are cooking for. Each menu will be originally formatted for ONE person. If you are cooking for one, you’ll love this! To adjust the menu, grocery list, and recipe cards for quantity, look for the YELLOW BOX on each document and input the amount of people you’ll be cooking for.
If you haven’t heard, we are diligently working on a brand new system with updated menu resource documents that are cleaner, easier to understand, and ON-THE-SITE with no more need for Google Docs. If you aren’t a member yet, now is the time because all current members will get the new upgrades at NO additional cost!
