I’m a huge fan of cooking in bulk, and I’ve written about my 3 step system to ensuring you always have Paleo food available (that post is here).
So, in this post, I wanted to give you a quick and delicious example of how to cook 3 meals super fast using slow cooker pork + 3 other easy meals to add some variation (so, lunch and dinner for 3-4 days or dinner for a whole week)!
If you’ve ever been to a Chinese restaurant, then you’ve probably come across the term “family-style.” It’s ordering a bunch of different dishes and then sharing them during the meal (without dividing the dishes before the meal begins).
For example, here’s a meal Jeremy and I shared with my aunt at a restaurant in Haikou, Hainan, China last month (it featured roasted duck, a duck soup, a white potato dish, and a green beans stir fry):
So, if you’d like to put together your own family style Chinese dinner at home, then you might like these 2 Paleo Chinese menus.
We spent most of the day eating in Houston! Lunch was at Hubbell & Hudson Bistro and dinner was at the Paleo-inspired Corner Table restaurant, where we met up with Josh from Slim Palate (enter the giveaway for a signed copy of his book here) and chatted to Alyssa Dole (the Pastry Chef at Corner Table).
Second day in Napa, staying at the really cool Andaz Hotel in downtown Napa.
Breakfast: 1 boiled egg, which I had picked up from Whole Foods the night before and stored in our mini fridge. I also had a decaf with some ghee in it (I bought the ghee at Whole Foods as well).
Breakfast: It’s always tough getting up on a Monday morning, so I needed a cup of Bone Broth (recipe here) and a cup of Ultimate Paleo Coffee (recipe here). If you’ve been reading my daily meal updates, then you’ve probably discovered a pattern in what I have for breakfast! In fact, my biggest worry about traveling to Napa on Tuesday is my lack of bone broth! (Jeremy usually has something different like scrambled eggs, fried eggs, or leftovers for breakfast. My parents always have an avocado and a boiled egg each for breakfast.)
