I’m baaaack. We are still not 100% over here, but I no longer feel like I’m going to die, so there’s that. My mini is finally able to go back to school. We are still battling a little yuckiness over here, and SLEEP is our remedy. I had to wake my daughter up at 8:15 today so she could get ready for school eat breakfast and not be late. Luckily we live like 5 minutes from her school. I got 10 hours of sleep last night, and we are usually still taking like 45 minute naps around here in the afternoon. I usually dread an afternoon nap with my girlie but, man, whatever it is we are battling is taking everything out of use. The good news is that our appetites are back and I actually had the energy to meal plan for the week. So buckle up and away we go.
Breakfasts: Shakeology Shakes. I switched to their vegan formula and I really like it. It’s like dessert for breakfast, and SO SO SO healthy and good for you.
Snacks: We have been on a fresh fruit kick over here. Blackberries, apples, strawberries. Oh, and a little cheat…the Boom Chicka Pop Popcorn in Sweet and Spicy. It’s addictive. Like I can’t stop eating it. Run out and get yourself some. Immediately. You can thank me later.
Lunches: The hubby is out of town, so I’ll be knocking out dinner leftovers for lunch. Someone’s got to do it. Don’t want the food to go to waste.
Whole Wheat Pasta with Veggies and Cream Sauce (I’ll spotlight this recipe later this week. Spoiler alert…it uses greek yogurt, no cream and TONS of yummy veggies).
Marinated Flank Stead with Chimichurri served with roasted sweet potatoes (my daughter’s fave) and salad. The chimichurri is everything. You could put it on a shoe, and it would be delicious. Herby, garlicky, a tad spicy, tangy…its so good.
Crockpot chicken tacos with black beans. This was on the menu last week but didn’t get made. Instead I consumed a lot of soup…if I was even hungry.
Pizza night with family (I have family in town this week, so this is our “cheat” meal).
The rest of the days are leftovers, because it’s hard to cook for 1 adult and a toddler and not have leftovers.
Stay tuned for that pasta recipe. There’s something about it that screams Spring! Happy eating.
