I have decided to go slow instead of jumping right in. My weekly trip to Starbucks for a Grande Carmel Macchiato will still be allowed as well as condiments. Yeah, Yeah I know...what about all of the crap in those? I have learned that small steps are going to be very important here. I want this to work but if I dont want to feel like caged dog! The crabby caged dog always bites! I could have kept the fast food, ice cream, cookies, chips, soda and candybars.
I cleaned out my freezer, frige and cupboards. I did keep some things that my family eats but if they are out of sight they are out of mind. However there is no candy or ice cream so if I get a hankering I am going to have to physically make something or go to the store, which once I am home for the night I usually dont venture out.
My freezer staples this week:
Venison (Thanks honey! You are such a good hunter...our village would be well fed:))
Thin sandwich steaks
Tip-make sure you stock up on meat when it is on sale. Learn your grocers sale cycle! That way you will know when your favorite meats will be on sale.
Veggies I will need:
Spaghetti squash, peppers, onions, mushrooms, broccoli califlower, pea pods, cucs, tomatoes, and romaine.
Chicken fajita salad
Venison steaks with roasted veggies
I am a severe creature of habit so I will probably eat the same breakfast and lunch all week unless I have leftovers from dinner.
I also have back up paleo meals in the freezer: chicken breast with broccoli and chicken thyme stew.
Well my plan is all set. Lets get shopping and then it is time for prep!
