This week’s meal plan is paleo, gluten-free and low-carb. Well, mostly low-carb. I am going to incorporate a bit more carbs since I lost weight in January.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram, which you should (HERE, click here!), you don’t know that I gave up booze, grains, dairy and sugar for the month of January. I already rarely eat sugar, almost never have dairy except for butter, only have rice for grains but I do love a good margarita or glass of wine.
I gave it all up (mostly, like 95%) for January – and I unintentionally lost weight. I got down to 120, which at 5’7 and fairly athletic is just lower than I’d like to be. And I want my ass back. I’m sure my husband does too.
So this week I’m incorporating some more carbs from white rice that I will cook in bone broth and cool. Doing this makes the rice more digestible, and cooling it makes it a resistant starch when eaten. Aka prebiotic fiber. Aka good for beneficial gut bacteria. And gut bacteria basically runs our lives. Seriously.
I’m also including some paleo pasta from Cappello’s. I really like their pasta and it’s completely grain-free, which is nice. Much easier to digest and much less inflammatory than a wheat pasta.
Also Sunday is the Super Bowl. And while I don’t care about sports, I am a fan of anything that encourages day drinking, lots of eating and yelling loudly. These are some of my favorite things.
Of course, I make healthier drinks like organic wine or an organic and sugar free margarita, and paleo and organic food options. This Super Bowl, I’m making nachos using Siete tortilla chips, grass-fed ground beef, Siete cashew cheese, pico de gallo and guacamole.
I’m also making ribs, using organic pasture raised pork and a good paleo BBQ sauce from Primal Kitchen.
I still eat and drink whatever I want, I just make healthier options!
