This week's tester is Belinda Smith from Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Belinda is a full-time student studying for her BS degree in environmental biology. She also works part-time as a merchandiser. She gets her daily burn on at CrossFit Foothill and also loves spending time outdoors with her pooch, hiking, camping, being at the beach, knitting, gardening and watching Netflix marathons. (Wow! She is one busy lady!!)

Belinda shared that she has Hashimoto's disease (an autoimmune disease) and that eating Paleo has helped her symptoms a great deal.

These are the photos that Belinda shared from her meal plan prep:

Meal Plan 17.29 Groceries

Chili Lime "Pollo Asado" - Barbecued Chicken

Beef with Broccoli

Chipotle Mango Baby Back Ribs

Shrimp and Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

Belinda! You did an awesome job with your four chosen recipes! I am glad to hear that making better choices with food makes you feel better. Dealing with Hashimoto's disease can not be easy, but making good choices with how you fuel your body is a sure thing. I love that you have found how easy it is to prepare your own mayo and that your Dad has officially deemed you as the "salsa maker" from now on :)
