This week’s Paleo Weekly Meal Plan features six seasonal dinner recipes and one dessert! Complete with a printable grocery list, these meal plans are meant to make weeknight eats easy and nourishing!
Happy weekend to ya! What are you up to this weekend?
Is it heating up where you live?
Per usual in the Sierra Nevada during the springtime, we’re getting a lot of variability – some days are hot and sunny, others cold and windy. Nevertheless, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for summertime food!
For me, this means lots of fresh salad, quick and easy meals, as well as anything off the grill.
Before we get to the meal plan, if you need some Mother’s Day Brunch ideas, my Grain-Free Morning Glory Muffins and Paleo Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Scones are always huge hits! Don’t let the fact that they’re healthier fool you – they are loved by all!
And now for this week’s menu! I hope you enjoy it. As always, let me know if you have any questions or requests.
Paleo Chinese Chicken Salad – Light and nourishing Chinese Chicken Salad with sesame ginger dressing that is soy-free, sugar-free, and healthier. This easy salad is filling and nutritious!

Prep Ahead: Make the salad dressing up to 1 week in advance!
Substitutions/Notes: Use your favorite store-bought sesame ginger salad dressing to omit some of the prep, and/or use leftover or rotisserie chicken instead of preparing chicken.
Sweet Chipotle Salmon with Hot Honey Glaze – This simple salmon has a triple punch of sweet, smoky, & spicy! The honey glaze is a MUST and is super easy to make.
Special Diet Notes: Recipe is paleo as is.
Prep Ahead: You can make the honey glaze up to a week in advance.
Substitutions/Notes: To make this Whole30 friendly, omit the glaze and the coconut sugar from the salmon rub. Also, use 1/2 tsp dried chipotle powder in place of the diced chipotles in adobo sauce.
