Trip Meals

Self Catering 4 day Weekend Trip . I am happy we have meals we can stay on track with. We do have full kitchen facilities but I find if I pre-make then its only a reheat job and no stress and everyone can enjoy the weekend.

Breakfast are the berry, greek yogurt, seeds and nuts with museli pots,

Lunches are premade salads,

Dinners are hot meals Pete Evans meals are still in use-by date this week so they were half price so I got paleo dinners 🙂

and 2 meals out.

Snacks : Bliss balls, Miso Soup for me

turkey zucchini lasagne

Eggplant “Toast”

I had some eggplant leftover from the Skinny eggplant lasagne so I placed it on foil lined tray sprayed with cooking spray. then layer the eggplant strips flat. Topped with a sprinkle of each smoked sweet paprika, garlic powder, parsley flakes and grated lactose free cheese (Liddle’s). I am not normally a fan of eggplant but this was delicious and I will be making it again. It makes a great substitute for a healthy version of garlic bread without the carbs

Paleo Pork Ribs Slow Cooked

Paleo Pork Ribs as I made Pete Evans Paleo BBQ Sauce Recipe and spread it over Pork ribs after a dry rub of sea-salt, black pepper, fennel seeds and garlic powder was rubbed on both sides of pork ribs then massage the bbq sauce over the ribs and cook in slow cooker on low 8hrs or high 4hrs. base with sauce every hour if you can to coat the ribs. Serve with coleslaw.

Chicken & Sundried Tomato Casserole

I came across this combination a few years back and decided to do it as I had ingredients to use up. Hubby loved it. I just did 2 chicken breast fillets into cubes, 1 pouch of sundried tomatoes with oil, 4 mushrooms sliced, and 1 handful of cheese on top. Place all ingredients after cutting into oven proof dish and bake 180*C for 25 minutes. Place 1 large beet cut into 6 and 2 purple carrots cut lengthwise into 3 then 1Tb balsamic Vinegar into 2nd dish and place in oven at same time to cook as chicken.
