You probably figured out from the Week 1 Meal Plan that I can eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch pretty much every single day. If this does not work for you, please mix things up. Eating leftovers for lunch is a brilliant idea, I just can’t usually do it because of my histamine intolerance.
One of my favorite lunches is what I call a nosh plate. A couple slices of turkey, a few almonds, some apple slices, a few miscellaneous raw veggies, such as cucumbers or carrots. I feel like I’m on a picnic and it makes me happy. This is obviously a super simple “meal,” and one that is very adaptable. You can change out the various components, add some dipping sauces (all Whole 30 compliant, of course) and make lots of different combinations of nosh plates.
It also should go without saying that I am having coffee every morning. I enjoy my coffee black. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. I’m debating whether cream in my coffee or a big piece of gluten free cake will be my first reintroduction at the end of my 30 days. 🙂
I also have a cup of black coffee in the afternoon. Sometimes I have tea instead, but usually, it’s black coffee.
This Week 2 Meal Plan is full of some of my best old recipes, like Citrus chicken thighs. This is an easy, weeknight dinner that my family raves over.
But jambalaya is our new favorite meal. I couldn’t believe how well this turned out. My family ate their servings over white rice, but I simply ate mine in a bowl like soup and was perfectly happy and satisfied with that.
There were lots of great meals during this second week! These can be some of the toughest days, so plan, plan, plan for some amazing meals so you have something to look forward to.
This week saw the introduction of a most heavenly “dessert:” homemade applesauce. This is the perfect use of your Instant Pot.
Here is the Week 2 Meal Plan. Remember that recipes highlighted in pink are available for free here on the website and recipes highlighted in blue are available in my book, Your Paleo Holiday.
