After you all showed such interest in my meal planning strategy post, I thought I would try to make meal planning posts a weekly feature on the blog. Well, an almost weekly feature. Sometimes I have weeks where I ditch meal planning and just eat a lot of easy stir fries, sandwiches, and eggs.
But last week I had a plan full of awesome meals to share with you! So here is last week's plan, following the template I used in my meal planning strategy post:
FOODS TO USE UP:
Parsley, tofu, tortillas, avocado
Sunday: Maple-Dijon salmon, wild rice, green beans with toasted almonds and butter
Monday: Adzuki bean and quinoa tabbouleh salad over a bed of massaged kale
Also I just want to point out that I cooked beans from scratch for the first time here. It actually took me two tries because the first batch was so mushy it fell right through my sieve into the sink!
Tuesday: Tofu Sunbutter stir fry served with brown rice
Wednesday: Chicken fajita brown rice bowl with homemade guacamole, homemade pico de gallo and plain Greek yogurt
Thursday: Chicken fajitas with homemade guacamole, homemade pico de gallo and plain Greek yogurt
These were so full that they wouldn't close, so I ended up eating them with a
knife and fork - which I think I liked even better than eating them
with my hands.
Friday: Dinner with friends consisting of a massaged kale salad, orange ginger tofu, and soupy amaranth
Lunches for the week: sandwiches, leftover chickpea burgers from last week, leftover adzuki bean and quinoa tabbouleh salad, and the most amazing squash lasagna with heaps of mozzarella cheese and a side of garlic toast from work!
Apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, kale, avocado, Brussels sprouts, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, garlic, tofu, red wine vinegar, plain 2% Greek yogurt, Bragg liquid aminos.
