Every Sunday, I prepare meals for the week. I get home at 6:45-7pm every weeknight and kids go to bed at 8pm, so there is no way we're cooking meals on weeknights. I give up a few hours on a Sunday so that breakfast & dinner is cooked for the week.
This week, I've made some pork and apple breakfast sausage patties that I'll have with either egg whites & mushrooms or paleo hot cereal & fruit.
So now that breakfast is squared away, it's on to dinner entrees & sides. One of the reasons why I love summer is because we grill most of our food. Husband is quite skilled on the Weber. We usually have seafood on Sundays (we are particularly fond of rockfish, shrimp, or scallops) and then he'll grill chicken for a couple nights. And then for ease, we'll have a crockpot meal like nom nom paleo's kulua pig. If you haven't tried it, I seriously feel sorry for you. It is the easiest, tastiest pork dish you will probably ever eat. No joke. As a matter of fact, you should probably go to the store right now & buy the pork, bacon, & garlic for the dish. Anyway, I totally went off on a tangent for a dish that we're not even having this week.
We started this week off with some ribs & green beans for dinner. I'm still doing the whole30 so I need things to be compliant. So I made the BBQ sauce and you guys...I killed it. That sauce was so good & husband grilled the ribs to perfection.
Tomorrow, husband (who is off of work this week) will grill up some tilapia & scallops I bought from Trader Joe's for tomorrow night's dinner as well as our chicken. Because we are heading for a little family getaway towards the end of the week, we're not going to need to fix a whole week's worth of food. So I happily fixed one side, roasted cauliflower. By the way, roasted cauliflower is fantastic. Before I started eating paleo, I couldn't imagine eating roasted cauliflower, broccoli, or brussel sprouts. Now though, I think they taste like candy (well, not really like candy, but kind of in that I'm-a-veggie-but-I-taste-so-good-that-you-can't-stop-eating kind of way).
And I can't forget these little balls of tastiness. Generally for post workout, I made these pistachio, cherry, coconut, & unsweetened dark cocoa powder truffles and they taste good. Now is when the whole30 purists will freak the eff out.I totally have Sex With Your Pants On. The way I see it, I can make a treat with whole30 complaint ingredients or I can go totally off the program and eat the candy, ice cream, or even something like froot loops with marshmallows or frosted shredded wheat (which is possibly my favorite cereal). Truffles like these keep me on the program. If that means I'm not Whole30, then I've come to the conclusion that I'm okay with that. I abide by all the other rules & I still consider myself to be whole30. Mini-rant over.
So there ya have it. I've got my breakfast, side, & truffles made. Hubs is taking care of grilling the rest tomorrow. Sunday meal prep done! Now it's time to dig in!
