    looks like plenty to me!

    I see a chicken cacciatore (garlic, tomatoes, oil, onion, thighs) in there and a good stir fry (broccoli, cabbage and leftover meat from another meal) and a roast chicken with parsnips and a beef stew with sweet potatoes (tomatoes, onion and garlic) and a curried cauliflower chicken (coconut milk ginger, a bit of hot pepper, garlic...maybe some almonds. maybe a bit of tomato - do you really have no other seasonings/spices?). If you have enough nuts/meal you could do a pancake with a couple of the eggs along with some porkchops for breakfast. If you have seasonings I would turn the turkey into sausage patties for breakfast.

    yeah, if no one's eating big then that's plenty of food

    Ooh I love these kinds of challenges:

    I have:
    1lb ground turkey
    1lb cube steak
    1lb stew meat
    1lb ground beef
    2 chicken breast
    4lbs boneless chicken thighs
    1 whole young chicken
    2lbs boneless pork ribs
    1lb pork tenderloin
    1.6lbs pork chops
    head of green cabbage
    head of cauliflower
    two bunches of broccoli
    three parsnips
    7 hot peppers
    3/4 container of cherry tomatoes
    sweet potatoes
    onions
    ginger
    two lemons
    4 eggs
    1/4 gallon milk
    almond butter
    sauerkraut
    lemongrass tube
    slivered almonds
    chopped walnuts
    whole almonds
    whole flax seeds
    coconut flour
    almond flour/meal
    coconut oil
    5 cans of diced tomatoes
    1 box chicken broth
    3 cans coconut milk
    28oz can whole Italian tomatoes
    garlic cloves
    Balsamic &Oil

    Ok, to make this last one week:

    For breakfast I'd use those eggs to make sweet potato almond butter/almond flour/coconut flour muffins. Go savory for half with peppers, some seasoned ground meat and garlic etc, and go sweet for the other half, with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger etc. Breakfast, covered. For days people don't want muffins, serve leftovers. (I'll send you a recipe)

    Ok for the first day, roast the chicken. Eat the chicken, with roasted garlic cauliflower. Throw the carcass and leftovers in the crockpot and make soup.

    Now you have chicken soup for lunch, at least two days worth, probably more.

    Dinner #2:
    turkey/beef meatballs in tomato sauce over roasted/steamed broccoli. Yum! (leftovers for breakie or lunch.)

    Dinner #3:
    Stew. Use your stew beef, one of the cans of diced tomatoes and parsnips etc. Crockpot wonder!

    Dinner #4:

    Curried chicken thighs. Lemon grass, coconut milk, curry powder, ginger. Yum. Crisp the skins and then put in a greased dish, pour in the coconut milk and spices, onions, garlic, cauliflower and bake until chicken is done. Mmmmmmm!

    Dinner #5:

    Roast pork tenderloin and cabbage sauted with mustard, a splash of chicken broth, garlic. Mmmm it will taste great with the pork tenderloin. Season the pork tenderloin with paprika, garlic and onion powder, sea salt and lots of cracked pepper. Sear in a hot pan and stick in the oven at 350 until meat reaches 145.

    Dinner #6:

    Braised balsamic cube steaks. Heat oil in a skillet and brown steaks. Remove and saute an onion and minced garlic and lemon zest. Add 1/3 cup of broth, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar and allow it to reduce a bit. Throw the steaks in and cook until tender, about 5 min. Serve with broccoli.

    Dinner # 7:

    Ginger Pork chops. Brine pork chops in the morning a basic brine, but add a bit of balsamic and lots of ginger. Grill or pan fry. Serve with whatever veg is left! lol

    Leftovers and chicken soup are your lunches. You have 2 chicken breasts left so those could become lunch one of the days.

    The only thing I think you need is more eggs. More eggs would round out your week and make breakie and lunch a bit easier.
    The more I see the less I know for sure.

    Would you happen to have fish sauce and bell peppers? My favorite way to eat cabbage is to saute bell peppers and garlic, then add ground beef and brown it. Shred or chop the cabbage and throw it in, add fish sauce and continue cooking until the cabbage is done, add fresh cracked black pepper, mix really well and eat. Yummmmm. You cold use GF soy sauce if you don't have fish sauce but it will give it a different taste..

    I would also make some almond meal bread, add the chopped walnuts. You'll need the eggs for that, but as you only have 4 that doesn't seem like much to spread out over a week for four people. For lunches you can slice cherry tomatoes and spread them over slices of almond meal bread, drizzle with olive oil and toast them in the oven.

    If you use the lemon juice try to save the lemons. I like to steam them with veggies, especially asparagus and broccoli.
