Feed a Family of Four with this Paleo SCD Grocery Shopping List

by Jordan Reasoner

SCD Paleo grocery shopping list

Hate figuring out what to eat every day?

I used to feel the same way…

The cure for “menu paralysis” is to plan it out, no exceptions.

The only way I can stay on track feeding a family of four on a Paleo SCD diet is to live by menus and grocery shopping lists.  It gives me peace to know that I have it all figured out.

That’s why I’m going to share an example of my menu and grocery shopping list with you.

If you can’t tolerate all these foods yet, that’s totally cool.  Don’t get discouraged; get creative about what you could eat instead.

It took me three years of healing to tolerate some of these foods, so use this as a guide to give you tasty ideas of your own.

How I use my Paleo SCD menu and grocery shopping list:

  1. I plan ahead 4 days at a time so we can get fresh produce at the farmers market and nothing will spoil
  2. Meat tastes WAY better when it’s fresh and by planning only 4 days ahead, I can eat fresh meat without having to go to the store every day
  3. I didn’t list breakfast because we typically have breakfast sausage sautéed in coconut oil
  4. I didn’t list the bone broth or sauerkraut I eat every day, which are both important parts of my health

I took pictures of my menu and grocery shopping list so you can print them off and use them just like I do.

(I also typed them in case you can’t read my awful hand writing).

Lunch: Chicken and Apple Hash

Hi Guys,
Check out this post I wrote on the topic: Five Things I Make Everyweek on the SCD (For People Who Don’t Cook Too Good). I tend to grab and make a bunch of essentials and then piece them together during the week based on my mood and the family’s schedule (which is unpredictable). On the menu: Roasted Chicken & Veggies, Brooklyn Spinach Pie, Cheese Crackers, Fruit Salad and Chopped Salad: http://scdelicious.com/blog/2012/06/19/5-things-to-make-every-week-to-get-you-through-the-scdiet-for-people-who-dont-cook-too-good/

Jordan,

I see you included bacon on your sample menu. Bacon contains a lot of sugar. Are you getting packaged bacon? From what I’ve read, bacon was a no-no for SCD….unless you can find sugar free bacon.

Great question Edwin.

I get my bacon uncured with no sugar added… it’s amazing.

Check with your local butcher and ask for it.

I recieved the Break the Visious Cycle book and it mentioned to put the blended carrots right into thesoup and had found out you just use it on the side. Will it still work and also I had forgotten to peel the carrots. I can’t afford to start over again. Please help. Thanks.

@ Norma – You’ll be okay just make sure the carrots are cooked enough that a fork can easily pierce them.
