This Week’s Menu {February 3 – 9}

Last week started out great and with the best intentions, but then turned into a string of  decadent ‘cheat days’ where “one little slice of baguette” turns into “let’ s split the crème brûlée” turns into “omg doughnuts!!!“… Back to clean healthy eating this week. My wallet will approve.

This Week’s Menu {January 20-26}

Mr. Fiancé has been accompanying me to hot yoga the past week, and we are both feeling good about it. Food-wise we have been eating a lot of protein and vegetables, staying away from carbs, mostly really basic ingredients. I don’t think we are ready to go on a total palaeolithic diet, but the savoury, high protein meals are really appealing to us right now. So here are our paleo-friendly meals for this week.

This Week’s Menu {January 13 – 19}

First week back to eating well went amazing, so I’m sticking mostly with Martha‘s salads again. There was some great wild-caught salmon and cod that I couldn’t say no to as well. salmon is easy, but all the cod recipes I know involve lots of potatoes and olive oil. Hummm.

This Week’s Menu {October 7 – 14}

Not sure if I’ll have time to make all of this this week I guess we’ll see, It’s the week leading up to Thanksgiving (in Canada) and I may be spending my evenings making food in preparation for a weekend up at the lake with the family. This will be the second last visit of the year, next time we go up it will to be to close; turning off all the water and electricity.  I’m looking forward to one last fun-filled food fest. menu.svg
