Paleo Meal Plan for the week + Paleo Sloppy Joes!

Monday, March 2, 2015

Happy Monday! I'm writing this from the warmth of my home as an ice storm swirls around outside. This has to be good luck for our wedding on Saturday right?

Anyway, it's wedding week around here and we're going to have lots of people in and out of the house ad be running around like crazy people, so I wanted to make sure to have a lot of bulk meals prepared that are easy for anyone to pull out and heat up (slash so I am not tempted to just order pizza). I've been feeling so good and healthy and clear-headed on paleo and I want to feel this good during wedding week!

Last week I had some leftover cooked ground turkey and some leftover pizza sauce so I decided to make some paleo friendly sloppy joes. We ate them with plantain bread which, shockingly, IS JUST LIKE BREAD AND PALEO. WTF! It was so easy too? I'm beyond confused about why this bread recipe works but it does. Here is the recipe for plantain bread.

Sidenote about the plantain bread and the sloppy joes: Harrison ate them, loved them, and said it was just as good as normal sloppy joes. WIN.

Paleo Sloppy Joes:
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Servings: 4
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey ($3.00)
  • 1 onion, diced ($.88)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced ($.90)
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 tablespoon Italian sesaoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 can organic tomato sauce ($2.00)
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste ($.50)
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Coat a frying pan with coconut oil. Season the turkey with the Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt. Brown over medium-high heat until there is no pink left. Add in the onion and pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes, until onions are translucent.

Reduce heat to low and add the remaining ingredients and mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Cover and heat over low for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve with plantain bread and sweet potato fries and it's like a cheat day!

  11. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by eating coconut fats (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from major medical journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world upside down!
