Here I am pictured planning healthy meals for the week! Another busy one ahead, but thankfully not as crazy as last week. There are actually two evenings where there is nothing on the calendar after 5PM. YIPPEE! For the busier nights I’ll have these key ingredients kicking around. You really can have a healthy meal available even in chaos if you stock these items and have some back up in the freezer.
I’m also planning on these recipes:
Slow Cooker Chicken w/ Salsa (PALEO & GF): No official recipe for this. I’ll put chicken breasts in the slow cooker with Green Mountain Gringo salsa on low for 4-6 hours. Once cooked I’ll shred the chicken. We can use the chicken to top a salad or wrap in a burrito with rice.
Stuffed Peppers with Cauliflower Rice (PALEO & GF): I saw this recipe referenced on someone else’s FB page and thought it sounded intriguing. When I make stuffed peppers I usually make two versions: one with rice for family and one without for me. I like the idea of adding more veg to the mixture by using cauliflower rice.
Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (GF): I saw this recipe over the summer and it sounded good to me because we all know I LOVE sweet potatoes and I’m also pretty fond of lentils, BUT I knew no one else in my house would go for it. So, I’ve been waiting to make it for the one other person I know of who would be up for it – my good friend Debra! For years we got together every Thursday for dinner until our children’s activities made it too challenging. I’m excited to have her over and make her dinner.
