Meal Plan: Week of March 4th

Well this was an eventful weekend full of running (a half marathon right here in Tuscaloosa!) and some snow flurries even! This week’s menu was centered around using up some protein choices we have had in the freezer waiting on the right week to incorporate them.

Today I have a pretty long “to-do/prep” list but it will be worth it for a care-free and tasty week! Here is what I will do today:

  • Wash all produce after grocery shopping (vinegar-water soak then rinse)
  • Chop all salad veggies so salad assembly will take seconds
  • Make Italian meatballs with ground pork
  • Bake The Food Lovers’ N’oatmeal raisin cookies (for a party and David!)
  • Bake Multiply Delicious Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • Bake/roast post WOD chicken and potatoes
  • Prep egg muffin mixture to bake tomorrow

Last night to celebrate a successful race day we made the pizza I mentioned in the menu last week. We loved using the Against All Grain pizza crust recipe and all of our yummy toppings including cheese, salami, and pepperoni (combo from Whole Foods and Publix).


We opened one of our bottles of wine from a tasting we went to… so good! An “oaky/smoky” red which I love :)


Especially with an appetizer spread like that! We had uncured salami (Creminelli’s from Whole Foods), cheese, cracked pepper crackers, and chocolate.


Good looking pizza… all in paleo fashion!


The use of fresh parsley and basil just made this pizza pop! Loved every bite– we saved half for lunch today :) Glad we did!

Happy Sunday– I need to get to my to-do/prep list :)

Get prepped for this week!!
