SUN: Mini-mexican meatloves with seasoned sweet potato fries – Serves 4
*doubled the sweet potato fries recipe
* I am not making the ketchup because I think the fries are tasty enough without it. If you do make it, allow enough time because it takes 4 hours in the slow cooker.
MON: Pollo asado (p.64) – Serves 4 to 6
*did not opt to do any add-ins on the cauli-rice
TUES: Unstuffed cabbage rolls — Serves 6 to 8
WED: Fennel & sage meatballs (p.86) – Serves 5
THURS: Paleo pumpkin chili – Serves 6 to 8
Since it is cold in most of the US right now, there are lots of comfort foods on the menu this week. The Paleo pumpkin chili is one of my favorites. I love how the pumpkin adds so much flavor and texture. Again, a lot of the recipes make several servings so you can either freeze the leftovers or take it for lunch.
Here is the Word version of the menu with the grocery list 21 DSD Week 2 menu. Have a wonderful week!
~Eat well, be well
SUN: Beef & bacon cottage pie (p. 82) – Serves 6
MON: Chicken tortilla-less soup – Serves 8 (Great for leftovers!)
*I estimated about 4 avocados if it serves 8, but you can adjust according to your liking.
*If you have a busy week ahead, this is a great one to make ahead and heat up during the week.
TUES: Chicken strips (p.78) with roasted broccoli– Serves 4
WED: Italian sausage & pepper (p.104) –Serves 4
*I am omitting the roasted garlic parsnip mash because this dish is enough by itself.
*You can omit the fennel too and it will still taste great.
*You can substitute ground Italian sausage for the ground pork to make it easier and not have to add the spice blend. Just be careful because some Italian sausages can have added sugar.
THURS: Primal Jambalaya with cauliflower instead of rice –Serves 6
*This recipe calls for 3 different types of protein chicken, sausage and shrimp, but you can adjust it to your liking. Maybe all three, maybe just one, whatever you like, but the grocery list contains all 3.
*If you are allergic to casein (dairy protein), cut off the casein around the sausage before cooking.
*Buy frozen shrimp to save money.
This week the menu is mostly from the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook. There are a couple of exceptions, which both have links to the recipes. You will notice most of the meals serve 6 to 8 people. If you don’t have that many people you need to cook for every night, then consider a few different options. One is to take the leftovers for lunch. This is what I love to do because it saves money and my lunch is made for the next day. It’s one less thing I have to do in the morning. Another suggestion is to freeze the leftovers for future meals. Some meals will freeze better than others though, but most should be okay. Lastly, is the obvious option of looking at the menu and cutting the recipe down. It’s up to you.
Here is the Word version of the menu with the grocery list attached Week 1 Dinner Menu. I look forward to hearing which recipes you try and like. Have a great week!
