Last night’s paleo chicken and broccoli casserole was amazing!
In fact, I’m sitting here wishing I could eat what is leftover (and keep telling myself no because – Intermittent Fasting). After all the stress of finding the ingredients at the store, cooking with Nigel while we listened to music and podcasts made it a little bit worth it. Something we didn’t consider was what would be a good trade for full fat coconut milk (light cream IS NOT a substitute).
a few tidbits of information we’ve gained through learning experience:
- you’ll need a few hours to meal plan, which will include finding the recipes and making grocery lists
- add another hour to find the ingredients while shopping. Maybe do some online research first to avoid unnecessary trips
- add another few hours to meal prep. You can cook some if not most meals ahead of time. Make it an at home date (we plan to). Turn up the music and dance and taste test as you go!
With these tidbits in mind, I’ll be planning on Friday, shopping on Sat, and prepping on Sunday. Being healthy doesn’t have to be a chore so I’m hoping this groove will keep it enjoyable. Always in constant search of what is manageable as well, so this feels the most natural of options.
Finally, you guys, I’m thankful for the encouragement as doing something new is never ‘easy.’ We aren’t even starting any type of true elimination diet yet, simply starting paleo, researching, and gathering resources.
Speaking of, I had a friend reach out and share these paleo resources:
