Here are some of my recent breakfast and dinner plates from the week. Nothing overly impressive, but in a sense, that’s my point! Paleo foods can speak for themselves in flavor, texture, smell and visual appeal. It’s been a very busy week at our house and I’m sure the weeks to come will be more of the same. With a team effort, we’ve still managed to put together well-balanced and nutrient dense meals. Most lunches consisted of dinner leftovers, so the focus here is on the original meals.
• Uncured, nitrate/nitrite free, gluten-free kelbasa
