A Month of Meals: February

It's that time of the month again!

No, no, not that time of the month! It's ten percent Tuesday. Or terrible Tuesday, depending on who's talking. Every month, our local grocery stores feature 10% off the total grocery bill the first Tuesday of the month.

I plan our suppers for the entire month so I can stock up on meat and pantry items. Vegetables are picked up weekly.

I will be doing my best to stick to eating between 50 and 100 grams of carbohydrates a day, so while not every single one of these recipes may be "paleo" (Chicken pot pie, I'm looking at you!) they will let me reach my goal.

I won't provide links to recipes which are not--or cannot be made to be whole30 compliant. Some recipes have no links because they actually come from cookbooks.

According to this week's flyer, the following cuts of meat are on sale:

Chicken Breasts 2.99/lb
Fresh Frying Chicken 2.99/lb
Basa Fillets 908g (2 lbs) for $7.77 (Whitefish)
Fresh Lean Ground Pork: 2.99/lb
Fresh Pork Side Spareribs 2.49/lb

Once again, lean ground beef was on sale last week for 2.99/lb. I picked up as much as they would let me which wasn't nearly as much as I wanted.

(Links below calendar. Click calender to enlarge. Sorry about the quality. We run everything off on paper already used at my husband's work.)
