Easy prep for a Paleo week.

Lesson 1: Paleo Prep

Take home point: Cook WAY more than you think.

One of the first things you can do to make life simple in a Paleo kitchen is to learn to cook more food than what you need for dinner. In the picture above the bowls contain 3 bags of brussels sprouts, 2 bunches of asparagus, 2 sliced onions, and a carton of mushrooms each tossed with some combination of garlic, thyme, basil, and olive oil.  Grilled or roasted, the vegetables will provide enough food for dinner and 3-4 more meals.

To kick off an easy week, grill or roast the vegetable and 2 pounds of beef (or other meat). You can make hamburger patties or just cook up the loose ground beef.

After dinner, store the vegetables in tupperware OR pack the leftovers into tupperware meals for an easy to grab lunch on the way out the door in the morning.

What’s the foil there in the picture? Roasted garlic!  A favorite in our house, it’s super simple to add to any meal.  Peel away as much of the outer flakes as possible.  Chop off the top of the entire head of garlic and brush with olive oil.  Wrap in foil and roast for 20-30 minutes or grill for the amount of time.  Pop out the roasted garlic pieces from the casings and add to any dish.
