Paleo Plan

Paleo Plan 

Anyone else a little partied out?  The entire month of December was a ball!  But now I feel like my body (especially my liver) is begging me to reset my eating habits.  Today I started with my 5 week Paleo Plan.  I’m easing into Paleo by starting this week off with no carbs and no alcohol but I’m still eating dairy.  Let me explain what I mean by no carbs.  I’m not counting fruits or vegetables, in my opinion, those are A-Ok.  I’m referring to things like bread, pasta, crackers, chips, rice, tortillas, and all sweets.  My hope is that by the end of the five weeks I feel better overall and that I continue to consume less carbs overall.

I’ve been collecting Paleo recipes on Pinterest for a while now (follow me here).  I’ve also had a few guest posts in the past with some awesome Paleo recipes.  (These are a favorite and totally on the menu plan this week.)  But I’ve never done full Paleo.  That meant I had to do my homework!  So I planned out the week of meals including 5 different dinners, 2 soups for me for lunch, and a few breakfast options.  I assumed that the fam would eat leftovers two of the nights.

Today was a pretty heavy prep day, but I know it will be worth it for the rest of the week.  I’ve been sharing what I’m eating on Insta (follow me here @mamamomtourage).  But here are the recipes from today.

Haunted Mansion Party and a Recipe from Mom

My birthday was a few weeks ago.  This one was kinda a biggie for me, it made me feel like I needed to celebrate!  So I decided to throw a backward party with some seriously fabulous ladies.  Being such a busy time of year, I ended up having the party the night before Halloween.  I asked everyone to dress in their favorite cozy fall clothes.

Paleo Recipes with Cam

For my last blog post on Mama Momtourage, I’m going out on a high!!  I am giving you a fish, chicken, and tri-tip recipe.  What can I say, I’m a nice lady.  I hope you all have enjoyed some of my favorite Paleo recipes as much as I have enjoyed sharing them.  We are all busy mamas and can all use some new ideas in the kitchen.  I hope to come back from time to time to share more awesome ways to make your life a little more healthy and your tummies nice and full.

First up Coconut Chicken!!  This is my all-time favorite Paleo chicken.  It is super easy, juicy, and yummy.

Coconut Chicken

Paleo with Cam

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil

Mix almond flour, shredded coconut and sea salt together in a bowl.  Beat egg in separate bowl.  Dip chicken breast in egg and roll in dry mixture.  Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add coconut oil when hot.  Pan fry chicken until fully cooked. If the crust starts to brown and your chicken isn’t fully cooked yet (this will depend on the size of the chicken breast), take it out of the pan and place it in the oven on a baking sheet at 350F for 5-10 minutes covered with foil.

Crockpot Tri-Tip

Paleo with Cam

  • 2-3 lbs of Tri-Tip
  • 1/2 cup of Beef Broth
  • 3 tbls of Italian seasoning or 1/2 packet of dry Italian dressing mix (non-paleo)…
  • Generous sprinkling of garlic powder
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbls of ground mustard
  • 2-4 dashes of Hot Sauce (Frank’s)
  • Drizzle with Olive Oil

Add broth first, then Tri-Tip.  Top with all the spices, hot sauce, and olive oil. Cook on low for 8 hours. If all the broth cooks down add more at anytime.

BBQ Salmon

Paleo with Cam

This is another easy go-to.  Simply cut your large side of salmon into 6 pieces and place in a foil boat (meaning sides of foil flipped up to keep liquids in and so that it can be closed).  Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, and a garlic seasoning (I like one that is a mix of garlic, basil, onion and salt).  I close the foil boats and pass them off to the hubby to BBQ.  As you can see asparagus or broccoli with mushrooms is our veggie of choice.  I simply sauté either or those veggies and mushrooms with olive oil, coconut aminos, and garlic.

These recipes look awesome!  For me, the try-tip is a really great recipe because there have been so many times I’ve wanted to make one but didn’t have enough time to BBQ it.  Slow cooker…genius!

Thanks so much to Nick and Cam for providing us with healthy tips, recipes, and workouts each Wednesday this January.  I hope they come back from time to time with more healthy info for us!
