I’m linking up to Peas and Crayons‘
I really wanted to stick to my guidelines I outlined in last week’s meal plans and also prepare my meals. Ya, I normally don’t peel, cut, and heaven forbid cook more than twice a week. This week I focused on getting in lots of fruits and veggies to give you ideas on how to ditch diet foods (because they make you fat).
Lunch was my version of Panera’s Strawberry Poppyseed Salad. I was lazy about grilling some chicken, so I got a rotisserie chicken at the store. I pulled the meat off and had enough for salads this week! It was so much better than canned chicken too.
I could seriously eat this dinner every week, and it will be back in my meal plan rotation! It’s a grilled hamburger bowl! It’s a hamburger topped with onions, pickles, lettuce, and tomato. I also added a little ketchup and mustard to it. Yum, yum, yum!!
I mixed up my snacks for this meal plan too. I always get pretty healthy, but sometimes I realize I haven’t had all of my fruits and veggies if I don’t do a shake (it has it in them). The salad was just plain lettuce, tomato, a little avocado and a pinch of goat cheese. Then I also had some grapes and a peach for a snack that morning.
Do you ever feel more proud of a meal plan than others?
I am pretty tickled with this one because of how many colorful fruits and veggies I got in at each meal.
Here are a few more ideas for your weekly meal plan to get in your fruits and veggies:
- Banana Nut Porridge (no oats!)
- Veggie Scamble — 2 whole eggs with veggies of your choice. I like mushrooms, tomatos, onions, and peppers.
- Turkey Roll Up – 2 oz turkey breast with lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Feeling wild? Add in a spear pickle to the roll up.
- Tropical Chili Bowl (Click for recipe)
