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.
- Yoghurt and Fruit
- Weetbix (children) & Walnut Granola
- Bacon and Eggs X 2 (PC loves fried tomato and leftover potato with his)
- Muffins & Banana Bread This time I made nut butter with my juicer. Excellent result
- Apple Fruinola (Huge hit! Favourite)
- Grain Free Blueberry Banana Muffins
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
- 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 Bake, Roasted Bacon Brussel Sprouts & Zucchini, & Baked Eggplant. (Only the zucchini got the thumbs up)
We bought boxes of fruit, although the Whole 30’s emphasis is on vegetables not fruit.
- 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)
Via these tips, I created a recipe for our future use.
4 cups of vegies (any combination)
2 Cups of Cheese
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.
