Menu Plan Monday: Back on Track
Over the last month of eating out waaaay too often, I have learned that carbs make me feel slow, sluggish, bloated, and all sorts of physical and mental icky. How did I not notice this when I lived in OR and started eating bread all the time?!?! Maybe I blamed it on being cold all of the time. I don't think I am gluten-intolerant as I don't have any of the symptoms my GF friends have, but I do know that I can't start the day out nor end it with any carb other than sweet potatoes. In that vein I posed this question:
Time to switch up the #paleo diet and find some good summertime recipes. Any suggestions?I got

So I went on a hunt myself and discovered a few new paleo recipe blogs. Thank you interwebz! Definitely time to start better cataloging things in Pepperplate.
And a big thank you everyone who kept stopping by while I was on an unintended hiatus. Here's this week's menu already shopped for yesterday, so no more excuses for eating horribly.
Monday: Spiced Honey Lemon Chicken with Sweet Caramelized Brussels Sprouts
Tuesday: Grilled Tuna with Cauliflower Risotto
Wednesday: Tilapia with Green Beans
Thursday: Chicken Waldorf Salad (with pecans instead of walnuts)
Friday: Skirt Steak with Arugula Salad
Saturday: If it's not too hot I'll try this Pumpkin Maple Breakfast Souffle and if it is too hot then I'll make this Sweet Potato Bacon Scramble (ok, I'll tweak the recipe into a scramble). For dinner I have really come to love Blackend/Cajun Chicken with Zoodles and a side of avocado.
What are some of your favorite (summer time) recipes?
