Happy Tuesday! Here is a picture of how our Monday wrapped up..literally!

Almost Paleo Roll Ups-!!

I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of all this junk food! I have been eating very “clean” for probably the past 8 years and my body just doesn’t function on anything else. It’s like putting junk in my gas tank- it just wont go!

So to try to cleanse it out a little I made this all meat and all veggie dinner. Nothing else. Practically perfectly paleo. Doesn’t it look amazing! Yes- because it is . The best part is that you can actually do this ahead of time! You could probably even roll it up ahead of time. It is very very quick once you get the veggies cut up.

Not only do they look really cool, but they taste insanely good. I was literally salivating looking at the pictures… Oops!

Enjoy!
