Paleo Again - Planning for the Week

By Wendiw80 @asouthernyogi
I am attempting a paleo-esque diet again simply because I am trying very hard to eat a little healthier. The main person who is influencing me to try this again is my friend from In The Pink and Green, Jane. Her and her hubby are eating Paleo and they love it. Jane is one of those people that just has such a healthy outlook on life. She doesn't eat healthy for weight loss (it's a nice by product but that's not her goal), she just wants to feel better. She and her husband love to eat and explore like my husband and I do, so they do that. But when they're at home, they're trying to lead a healthy and green life style. So I can use them for inspiration!

The thing I like about Paleo is the emphasis on eating things whole. Getting away from the traditional processed foods that include bleached white flour and other chemicals. I can take that idea and run with it. Ultimately, I think that if we can eat it as close to it's natural form as possible, our bodies can digest it in a way that is healthful. I don't agree on certain things, like certain veggies are bad for you, because like I said, if God put it there for us to grow, we can probably eat it. Unless it's poisonous in which case it has it's purpose but not for us to eat :)
I know there are people who disagree with me, but I don't care :)
So, what's on the menu for this week??? 
Breakfast - Sweet potato, sausage and spinach hash -

I brought an apple with some Sunflower butter for a snack and also to pair with my chicken salad for lunch. I also brought a pear and I have some trail mix. 

Dinner - Mini MeatloafsRecipePaleo Again - Planning for the WeekFrom the recipe above With this, I am going to roast some okra. And maybe have a couple of small sweet potatoes? I don't know. We'll see!
I'll eat the breakfast hash and the chicken salad for a couple of days so the only thing that will be different is dinner which I will post about later. 
Have you ever tried Paleo? Do you typically alter a "diet" to fit your lifestyle?
