Five Paleo Dinners To Cook Next Week #49
Well, we made it through the holiday season. YAY!
Maybe you’re Whole30-ing. Or maybe just “back to normal.” Whatever your eating plan right now, you’re probably done-done-done with holiday food. Here’s a collection of easy, delicious, Paleo and Whole30 compliant recipes to help you feel optimistic about 2017. Hope these help you feel comfy and cozy.
Dinner Ideas (Whole30 compliant)
Cookup Tips: This tastes best when it’s made to order, but good news! It’s just about 30 minutes, beginning to end. Fast and easy. Olé!
Cookup Tips: The chicken can be marinated overnight (but not longer; the texture gets weird). Prep the veggies and the sauce in advance. When it’s time to eat, just follow the stir-fry instructions.
Cookup Tips: Make a big batch during your Cookup and eat soup at any meal all week long! It’s easy to add ground beef or pork to the soup to make a complete meal, and cooked, cubed pork or beef works great, too.
Cookup Tips: Meat “dough” can be made 1 day in advance then cooked—or you can cook the meatballs during your Cookup and re-heat just before eating. They’ll stay fresh and tasty for 5-6 days after cooking. They also freeze like champs!
Recommended Sides: You kinda really need some oven fries with these. You can go for Crispy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries, Herb Parsnip Fries, or Classic Diner-Style Home Fries—don’t forget the Kickass Ketchup! You can prep all the potatoes in advance, then throw them in the oven with the meatballs just before eating.
Cookup Tips: Chop the raw cauliflower into rice and store in a covered container in the fridge until you’re ready to make the whole recipe. You can also cut up the veggies and ham in advance.
Recommended Sides: This really doesn’t really need a side, but if you want extra credit, and extra vegetables, I recommend steamed green beans with garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Condiment (Whole30 compliant)
Cookup Tips: Make this during your Cookup and add flair to your meals all week. It’s great on salads, sure, but you can also drizzle it on hot vegetables or a roasted chicken, plop it on a bunless burger, and use it as a dipper for roasted sweet potato fries.
