We had been renovating our home for a couple of weeks (10 weeks with 8 weeks in a tent in our backyard). Part of every kitchen remodel is the inability to cook and having to eat take out – which we blogged about in July. Eating out is rough, the inability to control the salt, the hidden sugar in the gravy, broth etc is something that we did not expect.

i have been subscribing to CHEF BY REQUEST Paleo meals – which is a ready to eat home delivery server and I have to say, loving the meals and loving the service. Price feels a little high and yet at the end of the day, it is way cheaper than eating take out only.

What to expect for delivery: If I have meal for Tuesday, the package will be on my doorstep by 6-7pm. Everything is well packaged and insulated

I grew up in Singapore and one of the things that I always crave is a big bowl of noodles. Specifically egg noodles, these are the yellow type of noodles that you can order in Chinese restaurant. I love them in a stir fry with vegetables especially bean sprouts where they are al dente.

Going to paleo makes me crave noodles even more and this is a great way to kill two birds with one stone – Zucchini noodles!

Lunch is tough for Mark. He is a picky lunch eater because he does not like to reheat food for lunch at work and since we had gone paleo, his options were reduced dramatically since he also does not eat a lot of salad. One of the things he does seem to like is roast beef in wraps.

When we first started on the paleo diet, we were spending a BIG percentage of our budget on food. HUGE. After 2-3 years of the paleo diet, things are quite different from before. Why? Because we started paying attention to the budget more, prioritized what is important and also reviewed our assumptions about what we will eat.
