Meal Plan Monday! - Clean & Paleo style

Its Monday and I found an awesome new meal plan idea!  I think I got it from the wellness mama but i have been researching and listening to so many things I really don't remember.
All of our fav recipes have been written on cute note cards and each week I go through and pull the recipes of the things we want to eat - make a list and place those cards on the fridge - the magnets are perfect because I can take the one for that day and place over the stove and see my recipes easily.  
Each day we can pick what we want and not have an already made list that always throws me.  

I have been doing a lot of research and planning and we are really striving to eat clean/paleo but more importantly than any title we are trying to JERF - Just Eat Real Food. If you don't know my back story, I was diagnosed with Cronhs Disease in 2008.  Its mild but food choices make all the difference.  Before a family it was fairly easy for me to stick to a plan but its harder with kids, stresses etc. When I cut out refined sugars, processed foods and diary before I had no symptoms and went into remission.  This past year has been pretty awful. Up and down on the scale, up and down with healthy and crap and the roller coaster needs to end.  I have been looking for better choices for our kids as well.  We are now off of fruit juice and have 2 kids off of cows milk.  Our 2 year old has been a little difficult to get off but we will get there.  We are eating only grassfed beef and trying to skip the processed food, eat cage free eggs and more organic veggies and fruits and stay away from dairy & gluten.  
Two of my biggest resources have been Underground Wellness and Dr. Axe. We ordered Dr Axe Burst Fit plan and are starting today! Yay

Ok on with the meal plan - 
Each morning we do a Dr Axe Super Food Smoothie - which is basically Keifer or Coconut Milk with Chia Seeds, Berries, Cinnamon and Raw Protein Powder (this is typically breakfast 5 days a week)

Here are our meal choices with links to the recipes
Paleo Coconut Chicken  
Crock Pot Spagetti Squash and Meatballs (I will post recipe when I make it later this week)
Beef & Cabbage Stir Fry 
My Super Yummy No-Tato Cauliflower Soup  (I also made this and added butternut squash and did it in the crock pot and omg it was yummy too)
Pizza with Cauliflower Crust (trying a new way - i will post recipe if it works hahaha)
Chicken Fajitas with Paleo Tortillas   These tortillas supposedly freeze well so i am gonna attempt to make quite a few and freeze some to have on hand!
Primal Biscuits and Gravy with homemade turkey sausage

Sides are just veggies lots of veggies!
