Except it’s Tuesday. Yesterday the post didn’t happen. I’m feeling a bit under the weather and it’s Spring Break for my mini, so “me” time was few and far between. I didn’t even get my workout in yesterday. Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve skipped a workout? But sometimes, when you’re hardcore mommin’ it, something’s gotta give.
This week’s meals aren’t anything exciting, bu they’ll be yummy. But first, I have to share the recipe I made for our family dinner on Sunday. I was craving Mexican food, but wanted to make it somewhat healthier. I whipped up a batch of refried beans in the crockpot and made these Baked Chimichangas. I subbed whole wheat tortillas for flour, made my life easy by using organic rotisserie chicken, served with fresh guacamole on the side, and it was a hit with everyone!
Now for the weekly plan:
Breakfasts: Shakeology Shakes. These have so many great nutrients for you body and are essential in giving me a great natural energy boost. Have I mentioned that these shakes have helped me kick coffee. I mean, I have some every now and then, but i don’t NEED it anymore. Crazy.
Snacks: Fresh fruit, veggies and hummus, trail mix…all easy stuff to grab and go if needed. Note: half the time I grab a snack, my mini ends up eating half of it. Every. Single. Time.
Lunches: I’m being super lazy this week. I’ll use the rest of the rotisserie chicken for salads and such, and probably mostly eat leftovers for lunch.
Monday: Chicken Picatta + Orzo Pasta (with tomatoes, avacado, green onion and a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing)
Tuesday: Turkey Meatloaf with sweet potatoes and Caesar salad
Wednesday: Steak with roasted garlic & parmesan potatoes and asparagus
Friday: Sheet pan chicken and veggies
Saturday: Take Out night
Sunday: Family Dinner
Sorry for the lack of recipe links this week. I will just be making it up as I go along this week. It will either be delicious, or a disaster. We’ll see.
What’s on your menu this week?
