Efficiency Tips

Smoothie Jars

Efficiency Tip #2 – Weekly Smoothie jars

  • Take out all dry smoothie ingredients, and place on counter.
  • Line up a week’s worth of empty glass jars
  • Assembly-line style, fill the line of jars with measured scoops of each dry ingredient. Place each ingredient back into the cabinet as you go.
  • Seal jars and stow in the cabinet.

Each morning:

  • Fill blender with a cup of liquid, and whatever fresh/frozen produce you have on hand.
  • Dump contents of dry jar into blender.
  • Blend and enjoy.

GAPS/Paleo compliant frozen meals


chicken-meatballsEfficiency Tip #1 – Frozen Meals that are GAPS/Paleo compliant? YES!

Beetnik foods is a fast-growing national company specializing in gluten-free, grass-fed cuisine. I have found it in the freezer case of my local Whole Foods and MOM’s Organic Market, and/or you can mail-order directly from Beetnik. I ordered the Paleo Resolution (5 dinners / 5 breakfasts). I’m happy to report that the Chicken Meatballs are a hit and totally GAPS-compliant. (Unfortunately the Peruvian stew was too spicy for us.)

Read the labels carefully to discern the best fit for your family’s current diet, as some items contain tapioca flour (Yes tapioca is Paleo compliant, but not GAPS compliant).
