I didn't do the best with sticking with my menu plans last week. Well, I take that back. I think I only messed up one day. I was home sick, both mentally and physically, and hubby brought home some chick filet. I know, I know. Couldn't I have at least insisted on something healthier?
But anyway. Moving on. I've been feeling so much better, and enjoying a lot more energy, with my workouts lately. Even with just the few days of following SP's January challenge, it's amazing what a difference it's made. So, I'm kicking this week's menu up just a notch. But I'm certainly excited about it! So, here goes -
Salmon with creamy leeks and bacon, with crusty bread. A recipe from my Rachael Ray cookbook. Not the healthiest, but just about the only way I will eat salmon. Plus, it's delish!!
Honey balsamic chicken with some of Uncle Ben's quinoa. This is a recipe left over from last week's plan, pulled from SP recipes.
Lentils puttanesca served over brown rice instead of pasta. I also plan to make extra brown rice (I usually bake it, turns out perfect!) to freeze
Black bean, lentil and rice burritos. Gonna make a double batch of these, so I can freeze some of this as well. Trying to think ahead for those rough days!
Kale, sweet potato and chickpea stew. Except, I'm subbing the kale for spinach for hubby's tastes and butternut squash for the sweet potato, just because. Haha! Guess I should have renamed that.
That's it! These recipes should give me plenty of leftovers, too, so some of this may run over into next week.
