And, because eMeals loves you so much and knows how much you will love them after you give it a try, they have provided you with a FREE Back to School PDF which includes:

  • A Back to School Checklist
  • Super Cute Printable Lunch Notes for your kids' lunchboxes

Click HERE to get your free PDF now! The lunch plan provided is not part of the Paleo meal plan, but it gives you a great idea of how the program works and I like to find ways to modify the non-Paleo recipes and make them work for us.

This tasty looking meal is TOTALLY Paleo, though and I've even included the recipes for each dish, courtesy of eMeals.
