This week I went for super easy and very quick to make because I knew I was going to have so much work that I would have very little time for food.… Read More »
Apologies for the lack of menus! I had a sudden influx of work. Last week, we had quite a few recipes out of one of my favorite new cookbooks—Danielle Walker’s Eat What You Love. So far, we’ve enjoyed everything we’ve cooked out of it. I’m sorry that I’m unable to link to the recipes, however.… Read More »
Jury duty is over, I’m more or less caught up with work, and able to finally get back to the blog. So, here is the first weekly menu for 2019. This is our weekly menu from last week (since I end up frequently changing our menu for one reason for another, I thought it might be good to wait until the week after to write out the menu).
I’m also now including breakfast as well as toddler meals and toddlers snacks!
- Scrambled eggs, Applegate organic sausage, organic greens sautéed in ghee, half an avocado, salsa
- Wrap with lettuce, hummus, and a sundried tomato chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s, and a Siete Foods tortilla
- Green drink with some protein powder plus collagen peptides from Vital Proteins
- 1: Stir Fry:
- Pork chops from the freezer
- Mixed veggies, including broccoli, bell peppers, baby kale, onion
- Sauce: a mixture of miso, coconut
aminos, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, and vinegar

Monday and Tuesday: Fish Tacos
Hello! Hope your Monday wasn’t too much of a Monday!
The theme of most weekly meal plans is simplicity. I don’t have the time or energy to make anything crazy or involved. I also need to make sure dinner can be done quickly and finished around 6 so the baby can get to sleep on time. And, of course, it has to be healthy and (usually) Paleo-ish. Or at least gluten-free.
So here’s what we’re having this week:
Here’s our menu for the week of July 9th to the 13th, 2018 (links to recipe provided when available):
- Turkey Burger Rice Bowls
- Applegate Farms frozen turkey burgers
- Rice, soaked for half an hour and rinsed until water runs clear
- Fire-roasted corn, peas, broccoli florets, organic spinach, sauteed in coconut oil and then steamed with a little water so the broccoli florets would be soft enough for the little, tossed with some salt, pepper, and random seasoning from the pantry
- Organic Caesar salad
- Eggplant parmesan: no recipe, just making it up as I go. We’ll see how it turns out.
- I’m using gluten-free breadcrumbs.
- Leftover eggplant parmesan
- Sauteed veggies—whatever is in the fridge
- Thursday leftovers.
