It’s been a crazy Monday. I think this is the first time we’ve been home for more than 30 minutes since we left for school this morning at 8:45. Mondays are like that for us though. But, it’s now 4:15 and I’m so ready for bed. Only 3 hours and 45 minutes until my mini’s bedtime…but who’s counting.
Okay, let’s get to it. This week’s meals aren’t very creative…but when it’s just me and my mini eating I don’t have the energy to be creative in the kitchen or make elaborate meals. It’s all about what’s fast and easy. So, here you go.
Breakfasts: Shakeology Shake, of course.
Snacks: Fruit (I’ve been combining kiwi, mango and blackberries and then topping it with unsweetened shredded coconut–it’s so good!), veggies and hummus
Lunches: Random salads that I make up with whatever is int he fridge, or leftovers. It’s that kind of uninspired week.
Monday: Leftovers from last night’s family dinner. I made the Creamy Pasta from last week’s menu. My mom is diabetic and is all about finding healthy ways to eat. She has lost over 25 pounds since moving here a year ago (ISN’T THAT AMAZING?!). So I wanted to make something that seemed like it was extravagant and a “cheat” meal, but it was whole wheat pasta, tons of veggies, and a sauce that was greek yogurt based. She LOVED it and so did my dad. That’s a win!
Tuesday: Bruschetta Chicken zoodle bowls. I love this because it takes about 30 minutes to throw together. And its so yummy!
Friday: Honey Garlic Pork chops and salad
Sunday: Family dinner at my parent’s house.
I’ve got a new challenge group starting today so my eating has to be on point. We are having a little competition where clean eats and exercise gets us points for our team. As the team coach I should probably lead by example…right? Meals may not be that exciting and inventive this week, but they are clean!
