Whole 30, Week 3 – Menu

Sharing our menu from the past week once again, in a desire to demonstrate how a large family or those on a tight budget can eat predominately Primal/Paleo.  Once again a slightly incomplete list, relying on our pre-planned menu for records.  Be sure to read Angela’s Week 4 for another large family menu.
* Items on the menu which are not Whole 30 are in italic.  Mostly they have been eaten by the non-whole 30ers, not me. Potatoes remain on our menu as we find them difficult for a large family budget to eliminate.

Breakfasts

Lunches
Our Garden Salads slightly vary each time, they may include; lettuce, tomato, carrot, capsicum, cucumber, broccoli, green beans, mushroom, radish, baby spinach, red cabbage, white cabbage and red.

  • Garden Salad and Silverside (baked)
  • Fruit Salad (Big Hit)
  • Zucchini Bake & Garden Salad
  • Carrot/Beetroot/corn/tomato Frittata & Garden Salad 
  • Tuna Salad with Garden Salad
  • Coconut Pancakes (horrid) & Boiled Eggs

Dinners

  • BBQ; Sausages, Lamb Chops, Mashed Potato, Mashed Pumpkin and Broccoli
  • Grilled Chicken Thighs, Mashed Potato, Mashed Pumpkin and Broccoli (Big Hit!)
  • Chips (fast food)
  • Sizzling Garlic Beef with Broccolini and Rice (teens and I abstained from rice) Need to find substitute for cornflour
  • Tuna Mornay (rice for the rule breakers;) Didn’t thicken well with coconut flour:(  More research needed.
  • Lamb Roast and Baked Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes and Peas
  • Potato BakeRoasted Bacon Brussel Sprouts & Zucchini, & Baked Eggplant.  (Only the zucchini got the thumbs up) 

Snacks
We bought boxes of fruit, although the Whole 30’s emphasis is on vegetables not fruit.

  • Bananas
  • Peaches
  • Almonds, Sultanas
  • Double Choc Muffins (Grain free) x 2. Absolutely Delis the first time!! Moist and fluffy, a bit dry the second time, I didn’t measure preciously.
  • Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (didn’t pin so can’t direct, sorry, but they were horrid anyway.  I overdid the bi-carb.  an 1/8 tsp means precisely that)
Drinks
  • Water
*Bonus – Frittata
Via these tips, I created a recipe for our future use.
4 cups of vegies (any combination)
2 Cups of Cheese
10 eggs
Seasoning

Have I shared how much I love my Kitchen Aid food processor?  Thank you PC:):) I LOVE it and as you know use it daily.

    I have only tried making coconut flour pancakes once. I didn't like them as pancakes, but cold out of the refrigerator the next day, they were really good with nut butter.
