Meal Pinning Monday

January 20, 2014

Who all is happy about the 3 day weekend? I know we are. 

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking.

This week I'm starting a 33 day Paleo challenge that is set to end right before my 28th birthday. The plan is to go into 28 a lot healthier, and a lot less addicted to sugar. I started with a juice cleanse for Sunday and Monday since we didn't have work (I just don't have the energy to juice on work days). Tuesday it's meat and veggies for the next 5-ish weeks. 

Every recipe on here may not fit Paleo exactly, but I'm tweaking them while cooking. If you have any questions about substitutions comment, tweet me @labride, or email me at 

Monday - We are loosely following this juicing schedule, I mainly used it for ideas. 

Tuesday - Skinny Taste Irish Nachos (minus the dairy for me)

Wednesday - Spicy Grilled Chicken Tenders with Cauliflower Poppers

Thursday - Deconstructed Samosa with Bombay Sweet Potatoes

Friday - Pork Tenderloin with Cauliflower LimeRice

Saturday - Roasted Chicken with Parsnip and Carrots

Sunday - Grilled Chicken with Rutabaga Fries

Breakfast - Paleo Egg McMuffin

Lunch - Summer Lunch Salad with Grilled Chicken
