Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!
Hi friends! I hope getting dinner on the table last week was stress-free for you. If it wasn’t stress-free for you, then you’ve come to the right place for menu planning help. Creating a menu plan each week is a life saver. This was especially true when I was a tired mom with three young kids. Now my kids are older but menu planning continues to play a huge role in my life because of the special diet I’m on. I’ve been on the Paleo diet for over 3 years to help manage my Rheumatoid Arthritis without meds. I’d never be able to be as disciplined as I am without having a plan in place each week. If you haven’t already done so, this week would be a great time to give menu planning a try :)
The only food I really miss being on the Paleo diet is pizza. I love pizza. So throughout the years I’ve tried making many different Paleo friendly crusts without much success. Cauliflower crusts are way too much work for me and everything else just completely underwhelms me. Last week’s recipe that I used from My Natural Family though was probably the best one yet.
Still not perfect but it tasted pretty good without being too much work to prepare. I did have to add quite a bit more tapioca flour than what was called for though. I’ll keep using this recipe for now but will continue to keep my eyes open for alternative crust recipes to try. If you know of anything let me know.
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.
My Weekly Menu Plan:
Monday: Paleo Mongolia Beef served with cauliflower rice and broccoli
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Baby Back Ribs served with tossed salad
Wednesday: Paleo Meatloaf served with roasted veggies
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me Paleo Pizza
Saturday: Hosting a ladies appetizer potluck party at my house…I’ll be making Homemade Paleo Nutella served with fruit
Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)
Have a wonderful week everyone!!
