Weekly Meal Plan #104
Creamy Shrimp & Corn Soup – Diary of a Recipe Collector
This creamy cajun-flavored soup is filled with shrimp, corn, and potatoes.
Ready in about 30 minutes, it’s a flavorful soup for any time of the year! This soup recipe opts for real potatoes in place of cream-of-potato-soup, and adds cream-style corn for a thicker consistency. If you’re looking to cut back the calorie count for this recipe, use milk instead of half & half.
Either way, you won’t lose flavor! And you certainly won’t want to stop slurping up this creamy, spicy goodness!
Spaghetti Squash Bolognese – Fake Ginger
Your favorite pasta dish made healthier! Rich paleo bolognese atop spaghetti squash noodles, you won’t even miss the carby pasta!
This recipe is packed with bacon, ground beef, and ground pork. Veggies, tomato paste, and coconut milk bind the bolognese together for a crunchy, flavorful texture. If you have or want more carbs to play with, use spiralized sweet potato noodles in place of spaghetti squash.
Either way you choose, you’ll love this saucy, meaty paleo meal!
Tea Braised Chicken Thighs – Honey and Birch
Grab a plate and a fork, ‘cause you’re going to want to dig into this tea braised chicken thighs dinner as soon as possible!
