Weekly Paleo Meal Plan + Paleo Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Ohhh Monday, back so soon? I know I'm late but this weekend I finished The Jinx - anyone else out there totally creeped out by the end of the last episode?? Not so much the oops-I-left-my-mic-on-in-the-bathroom confession but the burping. What was with the burping??? And the talking to himself? And now he's in jail (again) but is he just going to get right out of it (again)? Also these memes are killing me, especially this one:


Onto this week's meal plan:

Breakfast for the week:

Lunch for the week:
  • Leftovers
  • Crockpot Taco Soup (recipe coming soon pending taste test)

Dinners:
Snacks and Dessert:

Last week I planned to make my Italian Stuffed Peppers but apparently blacked out at the grocery store on Sunday and didn't buy the right ingredients, so Mexican Stuffed Peppers it is (I left them in the oven a little long so the final picture is super wrinkly but tastes good!):
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins (maybe less if you don't want a wrinkly pepper)

Ingredients:
  • 4 Bell Peppers
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced and seeded
  • 1-14 oz can diced tomatoes with chilis  
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (less if you're not a garlic fanatic like us)
  • Guacamole (I used this recipe, but sometimes just buy it at the grocery store)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the tops off the bell peppers, including the seeds, and trim out the ribs.

Season the turkey with the cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, sea salt and pepper and cook in a large frying pan with the chicken broth over medium-high heat for 10 mins or until the meat is cooked. Add the garlic and onion and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, mixing them well with the meat mixture.

Set the bell peppers onto a baking sheet and scoop the meat mixture into the peppers. I packed the meat down to fit as much as possible inside. Heat them in the oven for 25-30 minutes. When they're done, scoop guacamole on top and serve!

  5. I black out when I go to the grocery store sometimes and usually get everything but the one thing I needed for a recipe.....I'm usually hungry when I shop or get distracted by the wine aisle.....so Mark has pretty much taken over that job ;)

  7. I just bought the ingredients for stuffed bell peppers yesterday! I like to cut them in half because it always takes forever and a day to cook. I like the peppers a little softer so when I see "wrinkly", I see "good". haha
