This past week, on top of trying to eat healthy, I was busy packing for our big move, taking care of a sick pup (think he just missed his dad), and working from home while we had some renovations done on our townhouse. You could say it was a full week. However, I was even more glad that I decided to make the Vegetable and Bean soup from last week because it lasted the entire week! I changed up my meal plan some, but I did end up making most of the meals I listed and they were all delicious. Including some photos to get your mouth watering. Lots of vegetable chopping but your body will appreciate it!
I’m on to Round Two this week and here’s the plan:
Breakfast: Oatmeal (if you need a recipe)
Dinner: Grilled Chicken and steamed broccolini
Breakfast: Eggs and 1/2 Avocado
Lunch: Quinoa Salad
Dinner: Skillet Chicken & Quinoa
Breakfast: Protein Shake w/ Coconut Milk
Lunch: Skillet Chicken and Quinoa
Snack: handful of almonds
Dinner: Herby French Lentil Salad
Lunch: Herby French Lentil Salad
Dinner: Breakfast for dinner! 3 eggs omelet with spinach, tomato, onion and mushroom
We close on our new house on Friday, so I don’t imagine we’ll have time to cooking or to even heat up leftovers, so that will probably be a cheat day. But, even over this past weekend I was good with my cheat meal, I opted for a salad with no dressing for my side instead of sweet potato fries. I did manage to lose a pound this week, but my goal isn’t necessarily to lose weight, just to feel better and more energized.
I’d love to hear of any clean eating recipes that you know and love! Always looking for new ways to excite my taste buds! Feel free to share in the comments!
