Menu plans {Spring break }

So I don't know if anyone noticed, but I disappeared again... I was really getting into Paleo lifestyle and trying to treat my hypothyroidism! I am back now... You will still see Paleo recipes, but I will try to mix in a little bit of everything else too. This week is our spring break, so things have been a little crazy trying to keep the kids entertained! This is what we are having for supper...

Monday: grilled hamburgers, coleslaw & chips 
Tuesday:  tacos and Spanish rice Wednesday: barbecue chicken, potatoes & Mac & cheese
Thursday: Porkchops, Green beans & rice
Friday: chili 
Saturday: chicken and dumplings
Sunday: beans and cornbread


I just tried for my third attempt to make Paleo pancakes... Fail!!!! They didn't taste good, and they didn't look good. Every part of me wants to go eat everything bad for me! 

I apologize for the rant but I am human and a woman, I started this whole Paleo diet because of my thyroid. I have struggled for years to lose weight and was told Paleo was the way to not only lose weight but get my thyroid function on track. 

I came across a list of non-friendly thyroid foods (some of which I already knew) but did want to share!


•Brussels sprouts
•Mustard greens 

These steal your iodine from your thyroid,  cooking them does help



And more

•Soybeans and soy products, including tofu

Paleo Hamburger hash

Oh my goodness,  I could not think of anything to make for dinner tonight didn't look at my meal plan and was out most of the day... Looked on Pinterest found a couple ideas and then made up my own thing! This isn't completely Paleo especially if you add cheese to it! (I did not)

1lb hamburger/ ground turkey 
1 can rotel
1/2  onion
Taco seasoning
4 potatoes 

Brown one pound of hamburger/turkey, add taco seasoning,  add in onions and a can of rotel. In a separate pan diced potatoes and semi pan fry your potatoes, only used a splash of oil, add both pans together and let simmer. 

Top with hot sauce and guacamole, boys had cheese on top

The boys had ranch style beans along side! 

It was a quick filling meal! Yum!
