When you don’t eat certain foods, planning ahead is the key to getting nutritious, satisfying meals! You don’t always have the convenience of grabbing a meal wherever you feel like it, but if you meal plan ahead of time, you’ll find yourself with amazing recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert all week long. Let’s start with awesome recipes to get you excited for a Monday! The start of the week will look brighter when you kick it off with this Paleo Granola fromTaryn Fitz-Gerald. That’ll keep you full until lunch time rolls around, where you’ll get to chow down on Pesto Beet Wraps from Alejandra Olmedo. By the time you get home, all you’ll be able to think about is a big bowl of Paleo Eggplant Noodle Chow Mein from Dana Sterling, and then wrap up your awesome day on a high note with Apple Bars with Caramel Frosting from Camila Hurst.
