My Meal Plan this week. Because maybe you care, want to share, or try some out too:)! #MakingHealthyHappen at home requires a #PrepForSuccess plan for the week. I will find 2-3 recipes and list out what I need, read through them and prep what I can in advance (like boiled eggs or grated zucchini (see below)) then throwing them together is that much easier the night I want to make it.
My meal-inspiration this week comes from IG accounts/blogs: Whole 30 Recipes, Real Food by Dad, and Winning at Losing!
Sliced Sweet Potato Bake – to go with a side of fish, grilled chicken, or shrimp dish with vegetables or a salad. (@whole30recipes)
Sweet potato fries with any leftover potatoes, I usually split a large one with my husband and have the fries with the other because I love the fries (add carrots to that pan if you have them) in leftovers, cold, and in salads. (@whole30recipes)
Baked Zucchini Cups with avocado mayo dip – hoping the kids will try one!
Baked potato boat with egg, avocado, bacon! amazing! (@therealfooddad)
Avocado mash & bacon deviled eggs! DUH!
Stuffed Bell Peppers – because I will have some leftover ground chicken from the zucchini cups and it will make a mexican night. (@winningatlosing)
Also I found these at Publix and thought they are a perfectly FAST & cheap #PrepForSuccess option and to have ingredients on hand, dippers, snacks, and sides ready for any recipe above.
The Grocery List:
2-3 Sweet potatoes (2 if you are a single and want fries, 3 if you each want a baked one and some fries!)
1-2 Baked potatoes
Chives, 2 Zucchini squash, 2 red/yellow bell peppers, green onions, cilantro
cheese for baked potato if you wish
pantry items – almond/coconut flour, onion powder, salt & pepper, evoo or coconut oil, etc. (read recipes… I didn’t write it all down yet:))!
ENJOY, I know we will:)
