Whether you just began our Six-Week Paleo Challenge that started yesterday or you are looking for some simple Paleo recipes, you are in the right place. I am participating in the Six-Week Paleo Challenge for the second time around and I feel like a wise veteran now. Just kidding, I really don’t, but I did learn some important lessons during my first Paleo challenge.
It’s true! You, too, will soon find out that doing some MEAL PREP goes a long way and will help you stay on track with your diet. I wanted to share a meal prepping session that I did on Sunday, the day before the challenge started. This took me about two hours to make/prep, but it will (and has!) saved me so much unnecessary stress over the cooking in my household.
For example, my husband usually comes home from school (he’s a dental student at Creighton University) and has somehow morphed into some kind of ravenous vulture over the course of the day. His first order of business when he gets home is food. He’ll make a beeline for the refrigerator; open it up and much to his dismay never find anything exciting. I’m a horrible wife, I know. You can almost hear the sad Snoopy song playing as he walks away, head hanging in disappointment. Well, you could probably imagine what happened when he came home yesterday to a refrigerator full of delicious Paleo options. Yes, you read that right. OPTIONS. He had options to choose from, people. I’ve now discovered another important lesson; meal prep will not only save your diet, it COULD save your marriage. Don’t take my word for it, but if it does indeed save your marriage, you heard it here first.
UPDATE: I just asked my husband if me doing weekly meal prep would keep our marriage alive and his exact words were, “Well, I wouldn’t divorce you over having no food in the fridge, but I am a whole lot happier when there is.” There you have it, folks.
Now onto the good stuff. Here is what I did for my meal prep:
It really wasn’t too difficult and I felt so accomplished! The recipes for the two actual meals are listed below. Keep in mind that you can always play around with ingredients. Have fun with your food!
COCONUT CURRY CHICKEN SALAD
Directions: Combine all ingredients. Place salad in a Tupperware and refrigerate for 1 hour before eating.
GROUND BEEF AND VEGGIE STIR FRY
Optional: You can use your seasonings of choice
Directions: In a skillet/wok, cook beef using medium heat. Set aside. Using the same skillet/wok, cook onion, garlic, and green beans. Add in squash and zucchini. Wait five minutes and add remaining ingredients. Mix altogether with ground beef. Place in separate Tupperware. If you prefer, you can freeze a couple portions and refrigerate the rest!
Now my fridge is stuffed to the brim and I was definitely ready for a nap. Good luck to everyone participating in the Six-Week Paleo Challenge. If you would like more information regarding the challenge, click HERE. If you have any specific questions for me, email me at: email@example.com.
