Paleo Salads & Salad Dressings

Thankfully I’m back to menu planning after going rogue for a week.

Eating out too much during spring break and eating foods I normally wouldn’t eat has made me feel super heavy and toxic. I don’t know how much weight I gained but it was enough for my husband to ask the dreaded question, “How much do you weigh now?”

Imagine my eyes shooting darts at his head.

Now, if I was proud of how I’ve been eating that wouldn’t bother me but I was mad at him all day yesterday for asking and I even dreamt about it last night! I think I’ve been eating too much for the past month and it caught up to me this past week and now I need to lose at least five pounds–maybe more. And it really bugs me that it’s so obvious that he noticed and had to comment on it and yet, if he hadn’t maybe I would just keep going (I’m sure that’s why he risked life and limb to bring it up!).

Too much wine, cheese, restaurant food, too much wine, not enough sleep, FRENCH FRIES, not enough water, wine, barely any exercise and I wasn’t taking my MiraVita while traveling.


I’m back to salads, smoothies and a little bit of animal protein. I just roasted two whole chickens so we’ll have roasted chicken with roasted tomatoes tonight and then I’ll use the leftovers to make the Currried Chicken salad and the Paleo Basil Cashew Chicken.

I bought some cod to make fish tacos (wrapped in lettuce), salmon to roast and then make the I’ll make the Salmon Caesar Wraps with leftovers. I also have shrimp to make the Shrimp Grok-amole salad.

Smoothies, fruit, gluten-free muffins for kids and an Kale and Red Pepper Frittata with leftover  greens.

  2. These look wonderful. I plan to spend next week eating only from this post. Just don’t know which one to have first but need to detox from my diet of too much of everything you listed – fries, wine, cheese, etc. your husband was kind while mine doesn’t comment and I’ve gained way too much over this summer!
    Will follow up in a week to comment on change.
