Weekly Meal Plan {a link up}

Just like last year, we're starting the year our with our own made up paleo/cleanse.  I don't have time nor the desire to go through the caffeine withdraws so beside my down to 2 coke a day habit, we're eating completely clean.  No sugar, no processed foods, no fast food, no JUNK!  Week 1 was ok.  Everyone talks about how good they feel and how much energy they have but my body didn't react that way.  I was tired all week and had a nagging headache (that wasn't from caffeine withdraw because I didn't give that up).  It was miserable.  Yesterday and today were better.  I'm still waiting for that incredible feeling I hear about.

I'm a little late to the show but I decided to join in on Jessica's weekly meal plan link up.  I love meal planning, I think it has to do with my general preference to have control and make lists.

Monday:  Cabbage Soup (I normally love cabbage soup but this was really disappointing.)

Tuesday: Rotisserie Chicken Chili

Wednesday: CrockPot Pot Roast

Thursday: Thai Curry

Friday: Grilled Salmon and sesame noodles (using julienne zucchini for the noodles)

Saturday: Pulled Pork

Sunday: Fajita Lettuce Wraps

Some of these recipes call for sugar and I'll simply substitute honey, or soy sauce and I'll substitute coconut aminos.  It's so easy to make little changes and still eat your favorite foods in a much healthier fashion.
