August… Week 3 Menu

Happy Monday y’all! I am sorry I am just posting a weekly menu… I have actually been a bit under the weather! Today I am finally feeling better, yah :)

Hey, I wanted to reminded everyone that is new to this lifestyle that you can find food resource links and all sorts of tips in this post– Stokes Paleo 2.0 :) Check it out and let me know (comment below) with any sort of questions or just thoughts. Always excited when I see a comment pop up, I know that is silly. But I love hearing from you all!

As for making 2 gallons of chicken broth last weekend…  let’s just say I was SO thankful for that stuff this past week and weekend. I felt a cold coming on starting around Tuesday/Wednesday, so I was sure to incorporate lots of broth. Speaking of, I am sipping a cup now :)

So the menu…
