This week I did a lot of prep work – thank goodness – because it seems like every day, something happened making it difficult to eat healthfully!
I had my usuals. Some days was eggs with veggies, some were avocado toast topped with an egg.
Navy Bean Soup with Ham, cut up veggies and yogurt ranch dip every day!
Monday: Crockpot Lemon Chicken, brown rice and salad. We prepped this meal at my MOPs group a couple months ago, and it was nice to have something easy to pop in the crockpot. Everyone loved this – so I’m going to make several the next time I prep it. You can also grill or bake it. Here’s the site we got it from – Lemon Garlic Dump Chicken.
Taco Tuesday. Just kidding! That was one of the days where life got in the way and I had no time to cook. Fortunately we had some leftover lasagna from Sunday, and the last of the Chicken Tortilla Soup from last week. So we ate that with a veggie tray and yogurt dip.
Wednesday: Taco Tuesday now on Wednesday! I made both Crockpot Chicken For Tacos, Taco Salads, Nachos and more! and ground beef with taco seasoning, and everyone made their own tacos or nachos with various choices of shells, tortillas, chips etc. and cheese, veggies, salsas.
Thursday: Leftovers. Well, I ate leftovers. The children suckered me into taking them through the Chick Fil A drive-through on the way home from football practice.
Friday: it was FIT4MOM Phoenix Scottsdale’s annual team party, so I got to go out, and my kids were thrilled to have “pizza that comes to the door,” as they call delivery.
Saturday: The second boy child, who eats almost nothing, as you will recall, requested pasta. So pasta it was. But I didn’t have time for a sauce from scratch, so we did Trader Joe’s organic tomato basil marinara, with a can of no salt diced tomatoes added, and organic lean ground beef. Simple one! We had whole wheat spaghetti noodles with.
Sunday: White Chicken Chili, veggie tray, chips and salsa and guacamole (and I made up a few mini slider burgers for super bowl watching too!)
