Liz’s weekly real food meal plan #3

It seems like I only chop with this tool lately. Uniform pieces (and wizardry) are highly under-rated.
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:

I’m also bulk-cooking sweet potatoes, a simple pressure cooker roast AND Paleo Polynesian Coconut Meatballs (to. Die. For.) from Paleo Fondue. For all dinners, I make double-batches for leftovers. I’m also adding the grain-free pancakes from Brittany Angell as a weekend treat because Husband goes NUTS for them, and I figured, hey…live a little.

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

HERE’S HOW I DO IT: I fill in the meals I plan to eat in the chart. As I go, I add ingredients I need to the shopping list (I don’t show my shopping list below, in case you’d like to use the plan for yourself). Easy!

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!

  1. Love that you’re posting these and I have one more place to pull recipes from. I’m doing a two week cook-up on Sunday because next weekend is my first NTP class weekend – who hoo! I need real food to get me through the next 14 days.

    1. Hi Michelle! Usually a small sweet potato, maybe equal to 1 cup? I understand the overeating thing 🙂 it should abate with time!

  2. Thank you thank you thank you. I have not meal planned and just set my mind to it this week and poof here I am downloading your template. Oh and I will see you next Sat in Denver! *excited*

  3. I am just beginning at this. I am addicted to sugar. I need to lose about 15 pounds. I have a family that is not entirely on board with me, so I tend to eat bad out of convenience. thanks for all this help!

  4. Liz do you eat any kind of fermented food with your meals? Like sauerkraut/ pickles?
    How often do you drink your “raw milk-liver smoothie”?

    1. I drink the smoothie a few times a week, when I remember.
      I eat sauerkraut a few times each week too, and usually a little cup of kombucha most days, just because we home brew it and I like it.
