Friends Don’t Let Friends Eat Junk – the re-stock

It’s been a while since I posted about my friend, Jenn, and her family’s attempt at the Paleo lifestyle.  There’s been a lot going on, both at her house and at mine, but she’s still going strong on my Paleo “challenge”.  My last post was about the cleaning out of her pantry, fridge, and freezer and ridding them of all things non-paleo…..well, almost everything!After using the shopping list and taking inventory of the items she already had,  the next morning we went to the local Kroger to re-stock her kitchen with delicious Paleo essentials.  I have to say I did inspect her garage to make sure the junk actually made it into the trash.  I was a little worried she would be found in the middle of the night knee deep in a pile of Sweet ‘N Salty bars surrounded by empty cartons of ice cream.  She made me proud, however, when she told me she had contributed to the local construction dumpster after dark.  Don’t act like YOU haven’t done the same thing!

Now on to the fun part!  We had two grocery carts full of produce, meat, coconut oil, spices, coconut milk, almond butter, omega-3 eggs, and everything she needed to prepare the following ten dishes and many side dishes as well.  The entire bill came to $175.00.

All these dishes can be found in the RECIPES section of this blog.

Garden Fresh Meatballs               Easy Steak Skewers                   Orange Roughy with Ginger Carrots

Salmon Cakes            Spice Rubbed Crock Pot Chicken            Shrimp                Better Butter Chicken             Pork Chops

Prosciutto Perfection         Spanish Tortilla

Jenn commented on how good it felt to be putting all that good food on the conveyor belt!  Not a grain or processed food in sight!

Her pantry once again……..before

and after

As for that “no-no” shelf which held all the things she just couldn’t quite part with…..as of today those things are still there.  I take that as a good sign.  At least her family didn’t eat that junk!  She promises to part with the items within the next few days.  She and her children fed the moldy bread to the local ducks and now is the perfect time to be DONE with bread in her house!

We did the shopping on a Wednesday and Jenn informed me she was having guests for dinner on Friday.  She wanted to serve the guests fish, so we chose the Mahi Mahi with Ginger Carrots.  To add more fun to the game, she was also entertaining around ten friends in her home the following day.  The plan was to serve them Easy Steak Skewers because it feeds a lot of folks and it is easy.  She pulled off both dinners without any trouble and said the guests were raving about the food!  No one even missed the dinner rolls!  Jenn’s doing a great job of feeding her family healthy food and has been very pleased at the reaction of her two young children.  They are much more willing to try new foods than she thought they would be.  “This Paleo thing may work out after all!”  Next time I’ll tell you about the long car trip her family took on their second week of eating Paleo, which proves the timing will never be perfect, so what are you waiting for?  Are you ready for a Paleo intervention in your family?
