Weekly Paleo Menu Plan | Menu Plan Monday

It’s back!

After quite a while of “forgetting” to plan my meals and post them up here I realized that doing this not only saves me money, but keeps me accountable to myself.  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you probably know that 18 days into my second round of Whole30 I quit.  I had SO much on my plate and felt like I was seriously drowning.  I wasn’t planning my meals, just winging it and on super busy days instead of cheating and getting a quick meal into my belly, I’d skip the meal which caused my milk supply to drop. (I’m still exclusively breastfeeding my 7 month old baby.) I was stressed out and frustrated.  So I made the difficult choice to quit.

While off of the Whole30 I have eaten plenty of non-paleo meals and while they were satisfying at the moment, they’d leave me sluggish and feeling generally yucky.  So I have decided to follow a paleo meal plan with most of my meals being Whole30 compliant.  I will not stress over it if I want something not approved on the Whole30 menu, and 1 day a week if I want to, I may allow myself to have a “cheat” day.  As I follow this plan and hopefully continue to chase my fitness goals and goal weight I may eliminate cheat days or go for another round of Whole30.  The whole point of this is to make sure that the least stressful part of my day is the food I eat.

Each week I will write out my menu plan, and as the weeks go on I plan on sharing pictures of what I ate last week as well.  This will help me stay accountable.  If I am following a recipe chances are it can either be found in Practical Paleo or Well Fed.

  1. Good for you for finding something different and letting go of something that wasn’t working for you.

  2. I think it’s important to have that cheat day if you need it.

  3. The salad with avocado dressing, is it just mashed avocados or do you have a recipe?

  4. It all looks yummy!

  5. Yeah, I wouldn’t want to mess with a milk supply either.

    I am planning on doing a whole 30 next month; I’m only slightly (ok a lot) intimidated by it!

  10. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a step back to reevaluate the situation. It definitely doesn’t sound like you’ve lost the drive to succeed. You just needed a fresh game plan.

    Good luck!

  13. I really need to be better about this myself. I try but then fall behind again.

  14. I did whole 30 then stuck with paleo meals but lately I’ve been crazy busy with work and kids and have been straight up lazy about food. I have felt like crap for the past two weeks while doing it It’s amazing the change that food can make in your moods! I’m getting back into paleo this week!
