Real Life Paleo Meal Plan: Day 2
We started the day off a bit late again. Trying to get back to a good sleeping schedule tonight! The slow cooker had been going, so more chicken broth (recipe here) seemed to be a good start. We also finished off more of the leftover chili (recipe here) and made some beef sautéed with zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, and salt (it was a modified version of this recipe here).
Then it was bone broth time (after a cup of coffee). I like to make my bone broth with very little salt in it so that everyone can add in their own salt to taste. I’ve really enjoyed using Real Salt (it has a rounded flavor rather than a sharp salty flavor perhaps because of the other minerals in it).
Dinner was a bunch of different things (there were 5 of us eating, so I had to make a fair amount of food). Several of the dishes involved bacon since I had cooked 4 lbs of bacon earlier in the day (I like to cook a large batch all at once and then store in the fridge).
There were bacon cups filled with avocado salad and egg salad (recipe coming):
A bacon and egg romaine lettuce salad (recipe coming):
And lemon Brussels sprouts sautéed with sweet potatoes and topped with bacon and crumbled eggs (recipe coming):
We also finished off more of the chili (recipe here):
I decided to just keep both slow cookers going continuously so that there would be chicken broth and bone broth all the time (I just top it up with more water and vinegar when it starts to get low at night). So, we also had a bowl of chicken soup: I combined the chicken broth and the beef bone broth and added in some of the chicken meat (from making the chicken broth yesterday) along with some fresh cilantro.
Lastly, there was a side of small boiled potatoes (this article explains why potatoes Paleo), which I had with a bit of ghee.
After dinner snack: I had a small piece of 70% dark chocolate.
