Preparing for the Week

Here is a post from Robb Wolf on how to prep a weeks worth of meals in advance. Although they mention some bulk stores, I find Moore Wilsons in Wellington to have some great meat choices. They carry Freedom Farm brands, gluten free sausages, fresh seafood and lots of produce. Check it out. No Excuses.

Act like a paleo boyscout and "Be Prepared"

Sloppy Joe's

From our friends at Performance Menu

Here is a spicy cocoa version of an old favorite. Since we will not be serving this over the traditional hamburger bun, you have several options. I like to make a bed of romaine lettuce and tomato slices, but there are many possibilities: eggplant, squash, nut patties, you name it.

30 minutes

· 1kg ground turkey or beef (preferably prime grass-fed)
· 1 cup chopped onion
· 1 cup tomato puree
· 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
· 1 Tbsp chili powder
· ½ tsp yellow mustard powder
· 1 ½ tsp ground black pepper

Cook meat and onion in a large skillet on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the meat is browned. Stir in the remaining ingredients and heat for another 10 to 15 minutes. Serve over vegetables of your choice. Makes 4 servings.
