We had quite the weekend. I will share more when I’m able to, but for now let’s say I’m counting my blessings, and we’re approaching this week with a lot more downtime planned for our family.
Ready to start meal planning, but don’t know where to start?
We need more fish in our diet. Omega 3s for the win! Bob found this Miso marinated fish recipe, so we’ll be noshing on that night along with a green salad and watermelon.
Tuesday: Stir Fry Night
Stir fry night is my favorite! We get to choose what goes in our custom-made stir fry, and I always choose ALL the veggies. Snow peas, broccoli, carrots, onions, and more. The must-have? A sprinkling of ginger and garlic. YUM.
Waffles AKA brinner AKA breakfast for dinner is on the menu tonight. A side of bacon (yum), a healthy strawberry smoothie, and a fruit salad will round out our dinner.
Thursday: Slow-Cooked Pork
Pulled barbecue pork is a new family favorite. Not only is it simple to make since it slow cooks all day, but it makes the house smell divine! Bob uses this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo.
Friday: Slow-cooked chicken
Roasted chicken is fine, but making pulled chicken is easy and takes no time to set up in the slow cooker. A side of gluten-free, dairy-free cornbread and a big green salad with apples and walnuts will make this a perfect meal for a busy Friday night.
Saturday: Clean out the fridge night
We’ll work on cleaning out the fridge of all the leftovers and foods that need to be eaten up before they go bad. It’s a great way to reduce waste. Read about how we reduce food waste at home here.
Pizzas are so much fun to make at home. We’ve been trying out different gluten-free doughs and the jury is still out, but you can always try our Whalen Family pizza dough recipe if you’re not gluten-free and want to experiment. The base of it is pretty simple no matter what type of flour you use.
What’s on your menu this week?
