Enjoy this week’s meal plan. I would love to hear suggestions or feedback. My goal is to inspired, educate and make things just a little bit easier for everyone. I also added our family’s favorite recipe for banana muffins. I finally was able to create a recipe with lots of oats, lower sugar content, and one that everyone loved. You can even bake them in a large, rectangular baking dish! No need to dirty up those muffin tins.
Meal 1: Teriyaki Veggie Stir fry with flank steak
Meal 2: Massaged Kale Salad, Egg Salad, Fruit, Rolls
Meal 3: Halibut Tacos with Slaw and Avocado
Meal 4: Tomato Vegetable Sauce (eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, onions) with ground meat and pasta or spaghetti squash
Meal 5: Boneless BBQ ribs, slaw, beans, fruit salad
Meal 6: Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Onion, Hash with leftover Boneless Rib Meat
Bonus- Banana muffins – I love baking them in a large rectangular pan. That way no muffin tins to clean and just cut them into squares. Don’t mind the bite from the corner or the other cut. The kids were so ready to dig in before I took a picture!
1) Make enough kale salad for the week.
2) Plan for the same lunch every day. For example, this week, my husband is having, Baked Sweet Potato, Sautéed Greens, Shredded Chicken. If you turn on the oven to make Meal 6 on a Sunday, wrap sweet potatoes in foil, cook them. Then sauté your green with your has.
Tips for easier cooking :
Meal 1: Chop a bunch of veggies, have them already. Saute till just tender. Top with either homemade or teriyaki sauce. Thinly slice chicken or steak. Toss with corn starch. Sauté in a nonstick pan until just done. Toss into vegetable mixture. Serve over rice if desired.
Meal 2: Take a look here at my Kale Salad. Let it inspire you! I love keeping the dinner easy with hard-boiled eggs. Chop up in a salad, or make an egg salad. You can use any combination you want with the kale or what is in season.
Meal 3: Sauté diced onions, peppers, eggplant. Add homemade or jar of tomato sauce and simmer till tender. Sauté ground meat. You can either add to vegetables or keep on the side with tomato sauce. Serve with roasted spaghetti squash or pasta.
Meal 4: You can use any fish you would like: shrimp, cod, or even chunks of salmon.
Meal 5: My family loves this meal. You could even use chicken instead of pork. Don’t forget to make extra for another dinner.
Meal 6: Roast sweet potatoes, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts in the oven at 425. Sauté some onions and add leftover pork from rib night. Top the roasted vegetables with pork. Fantastic with a fried egg and sweet chili sauce.
