Paleo Meal Plan #6

These Paleo-friendly meal plans are for six dinner recipes and a dessert thrown in for fun! All of these recipes are paleo friendly, seasonal, and most can be easily adapted to be Keto/Low-Carb or Whole30 friendly. 

Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend!

We’re hunkered down with nearly a foot snow on the ground visiting with my parents who braved the weather to visit us. This morning I surprised the kids with a Valentine’s Breakfast Board, so they’re full of candy and covered in snow.

Lots of bold flavors in this week’s meal plan including TWO ways to use buffalo/wing sauce, my current favorite butternut soup, and Julia’s delicious muffins!

Enjoy and stay warm!
