Liz’s Weekly Real Food Meal Plan #8

The best way to be sure you stay on track and that your grocery budget doesn’t go to waste is to use a meal planner!
I’ve shared a few months’ worth of my weekly meal plans with you to help get you started. Have a look at the one below, then find ALL of them PLUS a blank planner for YOU to use on this page!
You’ll notice I eat very simply, and I repeat foods often. That’s because the quickest route to over-spending on groceries is thinking you need to eat something different at every meal.
My advice: Get boring. Repeat meals. Eat leftovers. Cook in bulk. With the time you save, you could read my book. Twice!
This week, I’m pulling from the following websites and books:

I’m using the Spiralizer (find it here) to make my zucchini noodles!

Again, download the blank meal planner and see 2 months’ worth of meal plans here.

Week 8
More info:

  • These are “unofficial” meal plans. This is how I do it, and what I eat – this isn’t an official “meal plan program.”
  • Still, checking out what I’M doing is a great way to get ideas for YOURSELF.
  • I don’t usually snack; if I do, it’s hard-boiled eggs, nuts, coconut flakes, sardines (yep, sardines) or a PaleoKit.
  • COOK A FEW BIG BATCHES OF A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS ON SUNDAY (ie a bunch of sweet potato, meatballs, chili or hard-boiled eggs). You can pull from these all week.
  • I pull from FREE online recipes (which I link), and I also pull from recipe books I own. You might not have those books. Either get ’em, or improvise by inserting your OWN recipe! I’m not trying to make your life difficult by cooking from books you don’t have. I’m just using all the resources I have, and I encourage you to do the same!

Need accountability? Leave a comment when you’re done with YOUR weekly real food meal plan. I’m waiting to hear from you…
Thanks for reading, and happy planning!

  1. It’s so great to get a glimpse of what other people are cooking/eating. As much as I love my food, there are times when you can run out of ideas, or feel like you’re beginning to repeat yourself a little bit.
    Thanks for opening up your kitchen to us!

    1. Kate, I just can’t keep up with them with the explosion of work on the farm now that warm weather is here! I’m trying to do them now and then, but they may be less frequent :*( I’m so sorry to disappoint! We will be adding meal plans to GFFBC soon.

  2. Liz – do you eat fruit daily after/along with your meals or you are just more “starchy carbs” kind of person?
    I was also wondering – what do you think about dandelion root tea? Some people think that it is a good coffee substitution but I am not sure if it is good to drink it daily.
    Thank you for everything you do! You are my role model!

    1. Hey Martha! I eat fruit daily when it’s seasonal as it is now (PEACHES! Yum. Topped with coconut milk = double yum). Other than that, I’m more of a starchy carb gal.
      Dandelion root tea is good. Can be pretty detoxifying. I always think there’s an argument for rotating anything you eat and drink and not getting too entrenched in certain habits (including coffee!) Thanks for reading!

    1. Nope, they are just accounting for the fact that (when I made these, pre-baby) I was almost always sleeping in on the weekends. So brunch/lunch would usually be pretty epic!
      Well, I guess that IS kind of IF…in a way 🙂
