30 Day Paleo Challenge

May 16, 2015

Meal Plan

I will be logging and posting my meal plan along with shopping lists and where you can find the recipe for the foods I am making. You don’t have to use these meal plans. I am just providing them as a convenience. Feel free to try any recipes you find on any of the sites I mentioned on the last post or in any Paleo cookbook you might already have. Leif also has an e-book available and for anyone signed up for this challenge he will let you have it for $5! This book has a food guide, shopping list and meal plans as well! There is a copy of this e-book on the front desk at the gym for you to take a look at! If you are interested in the e-book, let Leif know!


While I was writing the below section out, I stumbled across a great site that has a 4 week meal plan!! It also has a Yes and No list! I do own one of this blogger’s cookbooks and I LOVE it. It is called Well Fed. The carnitas are to die for! They are my husbands favorite. It was actually my first Paleo cookbook!
Here is a link to that site and page so if you would like to use that meal plan you can! 

Menu for May 1st – 3rd

I typically do my grocery shopping Sunday morning for the week and then do prep work that afternoon so I can start Monday’s with a bang! With that in Mind I am posting May 1st – 3rd today so that you can get to the store and get started. I will do everything I can to get May 4th – 10th posted tonight. 

Feel free to mix and match meals.
