Summertime conjures up images of vacations and time away from the daily grind, yet in the strangeness of the last year, many aren’t quite back to normalcy yet. Wherever you are, whether at home or on vacation, or some limbo in between, your summertime meal plan can be a light, breezy, and flavor-packed source of stability!

This week, we have a fun assortment of Paleo recipes using chicken, pork, green vegetables, and even a summer smoothie made with green apple and ginger.

If you want to cook less, double up your recipes every other day and enjoy the simplicity of leftovers throughout the week.

Here’s your meal plan:


It doesn’t get any more summery than this Chicken and Cucumber Salad. It’s bright, light, and quick to get on the table. If you can, get your cukes, tomatoes, onion, lemons and parsley from your local farmer’s market while they’re in their prime!

Go veggie tonight with Creamy Avocado Asparagus Soup. While sustainably sourced animal products certainly have their healthy place at the table, this vegetarian meal is a great way to support digestive health and nourish the gut. That’s because asparagus is a great prebiotic fiber that your good bacteria can thrive on!
