Looking for calorie specific meal plans or new recipes, check out the 7 day meal plan I created using Eat This Much Planner. The aim for each day was 1600 calories, each meal is not more than 100 calories over or under 1600 calories. The meal plans offer delicious recipes that are fairly easy to make and a variety of food so you don’t get bored eating the same thing. Feel free to use it as-is, or import it into your ETM account to get a grocery list, edit the meals, and track your intake.

Recipe directions

Basic scrambled eggs

Directions are for original recipe of 2 serving

1. (Feel free to substitute the olive oil with coconut oil, or any oil that fits with your diet)

2. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl and until broken up. Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper and beat to incorporate. Place 2 tablespoons of the eggs in a small bowl; set aside.

3. Heat a 10-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat until hot, about 2 minutes. Add butter to the pan and, using a rubber spatula, swirl until it’s melted and foamy and the pan is evenly coated. Pour in the larger portion of the eggs, sprinkle with chives and/or tarragon (if using), and let sit undisturbed until eggs just start to set around the edges, about 1 to 2 minutes. Using the rubber spatula, push the eggs from the edges into the center. Let sit again for about 30 seconds, then repeat pushing the eggs from the edges into the center every 30 seconds until just set, for a total cooking time of about 5 minutes.

4. Add remaining 2 tablespoons raw egg and stir until eggs no longer look wet. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately.

Blueberries

1. Wash and enjoy

Paleo Avocado Tuna Salad

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Cut the avocado in half and scoop the middle of both avocado halves into a bowl, leaving a shell of avocado flesh about ¼-inch thick on each half.

2. Add lemon juice and onion to the avocado in the bowl and mash together. Add drained tuna, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Taste and adjust if needed.

3. Fill avocado shells with tuna salad and serve.

Sliced bell pepper

Directions are for original recipe of 1 pepper

1. Wash the bell pepper, slice it in half, then remove the seeds and stem. Slice into strips and enjoy! Optionally eat with a side of hummus dip (there are other pepper + dip recipes on ETM you can swap in).

Paleo Chicken Spinach Meatballs

Directions are for original recipe of 2 serving

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with nonstick foil and set aside.

2. Press pineapple in sieve to remove excess juice. Place in large bowl. Cook and drain spinach, squeezing out extra moisture and add to pineapple. Add ground chicken, curry powder, salt and pepper. Mix well using hands.

3. Roll meat mixture into 1 1/2 Tbsp sized balls. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until fully cooked.

Simple Spinach Scramble

Directions are for original recipe of 1 serving

1. Clean the spinach off and throw it into a pan while still wet. Cook on medium heat and season with salt and pepper.

3. Add the eggs and scramble until cooked. Top with salt and pepper. Excerpt From: Michael Matthews. The Shredded Chef. iBooks. https://itun.es/ca/V7n-F.l

Apple

Directions are for original recipe of 1 apple

1. Simply wash and enjoy, or core and slice the apple for easier eating.

Grilled Italian Sausage with Peppers, Onions and Arugula

Directions are for original recipe of 4 serving

1. Preheat the grill. Mix together the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Coat the onion, peppers and sausages with 2 tbsp. olive oil. Add a dash of salt to the peppers and onion. Coat the grill grates with a little olive oil. Put the onion wedges on the grill and cover the grill. Let the onions roast for 5 minutes, or until they are a little charred. Turn the onions and move them to a cooler part of the grill to finish.

3. If your grill has two levels, place the sausages on the top part of the grill and the peppers directly below them. Done this way, as the sausages drip juice and fat, it will fall on the peppers, flavoring them while simultaneously preventing flare-ups. If your grill does not have two levels, put the peppers on the hottest part of the grill and the sausages on the coolest. Cover and grill everything for 15 to 20 minutes or so, periodically checking and turning the sausages and peppers as needed. Towards the end of cooking, baste the sausages, peppers and onions with the honey and balsamic mixture.

4. When the sausages are cooked through and the peppers and onions cooked, remove them from the grill to a sheet pan or large bowl. If you want, pick off some or all of the charred skin on the peppers. Cut the peppers into long strips, and slice the root end off the onions to separate the pieces. Cut the sausages into thirds. Mix everything well in the pan or bowl.

5. To serve, place a bed of baby arugula on the serving plates and top with the sausage, peppers and onion.

Roasted asparagus

Directions are for original recipe of 24 spears

1. Preheat oven to 425F.

2. Cut off the woody bottom part of the asparagus spears and discard.

3. With a vegetable peeler, peel off the skin on the bottom 2-3 inches of the spears. This keeps the asparagus from being all "stringy"

4. Place asparagus on foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.

5. Sprinkle with salt

6. With your hands, roll the asparagus around until they are evenly coated with oil and salt.

7. Roast for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your stalks and how tender you like them.

8. They should be tender when pierced with the tip of a knife.

9. The tips of the spears will get very brown but watch them to prevent burning.

10. They are great plain, but sometimes I serve them with a light vinaigrette if we need something acidic to balance out our meal.
