Happy Monday! Well, I hope it’s a happy Monday. I know many don’t care for Mondays, but it’s always an opportunity to start fresh, right? I don’t mind Mondays because I get refocused on dialing in those healthy eating habits that may be been a little loose over the weekend and I’m a creature of habit and thrive on a schedule.
I missed posting my meal plan last week. After enjoying a great birthday weekend full of friends, family, great meals, fun workouts and relaxing I looked over my meal plan and felt like there wasn’t much worth sharing. I made a new slow cooker chili recipe that was a flop. I ate it over the course of the week for lunch because I have a thing about food waste and couldn’t bear to toss it, but I definitely wasn’t going to recommend it all of you. Another night went out for a post birthday celebration with two great friends. Thursday I enjoyed a dinner very similar to this recipe for Tomato Basil Shrimp. The differences were that I excluded the red onion (simply because I didn’t have one) and I roasted all the ingredients at 400 for 15 minutes rather than sautéing. Really easy and really healthy. Finally last night I wanted to enjoy a family Sunday dinner together that didn’t require a lot of effort. I bought some marinated pork tenderloins that we grilled and we also had baked acorn squash. Easy peasy.
This week I have a better plan to share:
Fried “Rice” (GF & PALEO): You can add chicken or shrimp to this recipe too!
Oven Baked Fajitas (GF & Paleo if you use the appropriate wraps or serve over greens): I’m using sirloin instead of chicken because I have some in the freezer from my monthly meat delivery from Walden Local Meat.
Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (GF & Paleo): I’m doubling the meat mixture so that I have some left for lunches.
