Hello Friends,If you’ve adopted the Paleo lifestyle over the summer (maybe you did the 10-Day Blitz or 21 Day Knockout?), you might be panicking a little, wondering how you’re going to handle those chaotic evening meals that tend to take place when everyone’s back to school. Or maybe you’re considering hopping on that Paleo bandwagon now and thoughts of harried dinner times is making you rethink the whole thing.
Relax! Take a deep breath. The good news is, preparing Paleo meals for the family isn’t much more difficult than preparing non-Paleo meals. Is Paleo meal prep harder than putting a packaged meal on the table? Absolutely. It is worth the effort? You betcha.
When I make my meal plan for the week, I plan with lunches in mind. When you have school-aged children, you’ll want to do the same thing. This is especially true if you are keeping your kids on a Paleo diet. It can be difficult to pack a Paleo school lunch (bye bye sandwiches and packaged snacks) without quite a bit of planning, but it can be done. Let your evening meals give you a hand by planning accordingly. For example, if you’re making chicken on Monday, whip up a batch of Paleo tortillas and plan for lunchtime fajitas on Tuesday! Ole!
The following are some examples of easy weekday suppers that can do double duty as Paleo lunches the next day:
• Hamburgers. Hamburgers are popular in most Paleo households, so when you’re making burgers for supper, cook up some extras for lunches.
The beautiful thing about eating Paleo is that it’s all about produce and protein. It doesn’t get a whole lot more simple than that!
