Paleo-ketogenic Menu Plan Monday, 10 April 17
One of the first things I learned when I started a low carb diet 2 years ago, was that preparation is key.
Benjamin Franklin said “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” and this is so true when it comes to changing your diet because you are literally changing your way of life. Everything needs to change. From the way you shop to the way you socialise, and it’s not only about what you cook, but also about the way you cook.
I see many people starting this new ketogenic way of life, struggling to meet their macros or stay within the limits of their nutritional goals. They could all benefit from menu planning. It makes such a huge difference and really makes life easier.
I used to take part in Meal Plan Mondays many years ago when I first opened Nemo’s Kitchen, back when I ate an extremely unhealthy diet and ignored my food intolerance. Nemo’s Kitchen has been resurrected, now in a much more health conscious format!
My meals are now dairy free LCHF and each week I will share my plan with links to relative recipes as applicable. Let me know if this is helpful or not!
For breakfast I usually have seed pudding or coconut yogurt with berries, so I’ll only list my lunch and dinner plans.
Week starting 10 April 2017
- Carbonara style dish with cabbage “noodles”
- Crispy roast chicken salad
- Leftover sesame beef stir fry on kale
- Pork steaks with vegetables
- Spinach, egg and avocado salad
- Roast chicken with mediterranean vegetables
- Burgers with salad and avocado
- Creamy bacon and mushroom courgetti
- Mixed leaf tuna salad
- Sausage and vegetables
- Beef and aubergine “ragu” on kale
- Snack platter (usually contains things like boiled egg, salami, nuts, olives, etc)
- Pork steaks with mushrooms and salad
- Leftover ragu
This is the plan. As we all know, things don’t always go to plan and that’s okay. The important thing is to have a plan so that when the munchies start, you know exactly what you can eat. I have yet to insert all these meals into MyFitnessPal, but I tend to stick to the same plan, just tweak the ingredients to match my nutritional needs.
Also, as you can see I haven’t got any recipes up on my blog yet, but as I add them, I will link these up. I hope this plan will at least give you some inspiration if nothing else!
Let me know in the comments if you share your meal plans or recipes too.
