Paleo Meal Plan #20

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.

Photo collage of 4 of the meals from this week's Paleo Meal plan.

Hey there!

This month Julia and I collected a bunch of recipes that are seasonal (like always!) and full of bold flavors!

I’m especially dying to try her shredded Brussels salad. I’m a sucker for shredded Brussels.

For those Celebrating Christmas, what do you usually make? Do you have a standby that you always make? The Instant Pot Pot Roast from this week’s plan is an easy, stress-free main dish that feels fancy enough for Christmas.

I hope you stay warm and cozy during the holidays!

Love, Natalie

P.S. Simmer Pots and Holiday Sugar Scrub are two of my favorite things to give away during the holidays. They’re great for neighbors, teachers, stylists, or anyone you want to show appreciation to!


Sunday

SHAVED BRUSSELS SPROUT AND ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH SALAD — A fresh shaved Brussels sprout salad with roasted butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped apple, and feta cheese – all tied together with a citrusy maple cinnamon dressing.

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash -- Free Paleo Meal Plans

Special Diet Note: Recipe can be made strictly paleo by omitting the feta cheese. If making Whole30, omit the feta and pure maple syrup

Prep Ahead: No advance prep is needed, but you can roast the butternut squash up to 4 days ahead of time if desired. The dressing can also be made 1 week in advance.

Substitutions: Use your favorite salad dressing and/or add animal protein (rotisserie chicken works great!) to make this a balanced meal.

Monday

THAI PEANUT CURRY WITH CHICKEN MEATBALLS — This fun Thai Peanut curry has a rich, peanutty sauce, lots of vegetables, and tender ginger chicken meatballs!

Prep Ahead: The chicken meatball mixture can be made 1-2 days in advance.

Substitutions: Serve with cauliflower rice to make it grain-free and use any nut butter you like. PB has the strongest flavor, though. You may even omit it if you’re avoiding nuts — it’s still great without it.

Tuesday

CREAMY TUSCAN CHICKEN — Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken with dairy-free sun-dried tomato sauce and spinach is a rustic, enticing main dish! Serve it up with rice, noodles, or your favorite side dishes for a complete meal. If you don’t own an Instant Pot, no sweat! Julia included a slow cooker option as well.
