Meal Planning 5


You didn’t think I would forget did you??  Here is what I planned and am cooking this week.  Also, last week I started T25 and can I just say so far so good.  It is a tough workout but I am really enjoying it.  It keeps me motivated and sore but most of all it is inspiring me to keep eating healthy.  I need to find a fabric tape measure so I can start to measure my progress!

Sunday: Steak + Chicken + Zucchini + Rice  (We basically just used leftover food that we had in our fridge and freezer that needed to be cooked up- 1 steak, 2 chicken breasts and a zucchini)

Monday: Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts with Chicken Sausage

This was freaking amazing!! I could eat this 3 nights a week.  Seriously- it was that good.  I left off the pomegranate seeds and used 2 links of Italian chicken sausage and 2 links of spicy Italian chicken sausage and this was so money.  The spicy was a nice compliment to the sweet sprouts.  Plus I would also recommend going heavy on the caramelized onions because in my opinion it made this dish.

Tuesday: Orzo with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Feta

This was another win.  Usually my husband graciously eats my creations whether he likes them or not, but this he said “this is really good” after one bite.  Without me even having to prompt him with my incessant asking “do you like it? do you like it?” I have been trying to not make a lot of pasta and stay mostly gluten free to keep with my weight loss but this was well worth it.

Wednesday: Turkey Taco Salad  A staple in my house.

Thursday: Pot Roast with Carrots and Potatoes

Wish me luck.  This time I am going to crock pot it all day while I am at work, hopefully this is a success.

Friday: Night off or easy meal.

*Bonus: Last Saturday we actually made an excellent meal.  We made a pasta with pesto, chicken, sausage, broccoli, and tomatoes.  Again I tried to eat mostly the veggies and meat to lay of the gluten pasta but it was so good.  PLUS this means last week I cooked 6 nights- boom!  I will make it again, photograph, and post the recipe.
