What We Ate Wednesday 4/18/18

Another week, another list of meal ideas. Please let me know if this is helpful to you. My goal is to help you put nutritious meals on your table 7 nights a week, but we all suffer from brain block when it comes to meal planning from time to time. Even me! Here are this week’s ideas:

Meal #1: Turkey Stroganoff Meatballs, Cauliflower Grits, Broccoli

Meal #2: Spaghetti sauce over sauteed squash, salad and garlic bread

I may or may not have eaten that large pile of garlic rolls! Honestly, I only ate three of them. But I could have eaten them all. Just look how yummy….Let’s just say I got lots of hugs from the kids after this meal!

Meal #3: Taco night! With guacamole, raw veggies and plantain chips

Meal #4: Chicken Cordon Bleu, Okra, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cornbread

This chicken cordon bleu is a new experiment and is still in progress. It tasted great, but needs a few tweaks.

Meal #5: Pizza Popover and Salad

When I’m craving pizza, I head straight for the Pizza Popover. It has all the flavors of pizza, includes lots of veggies and makes enough to feed a big family. All without the trouble or expense of restaurant gluten free pizza! Bonus: make this without cheese and it’s even Whole30 approved! Tip: I add whatever veggies I have in the crisper drawer when I’m making the sauce. It’s so flavorful, your picky eaters won’t even notice.

Meal #6: Quick Asian Stir-Fry with Salmon

My family was eating leftovers that I could not eat due to the histamine, and I was shockingly short on my veggie consumption for the day, so I decided to get as many colors in my dinner as possible. I chopped and quickly sautéed lots of veggies, added a frozen salmon fillet at the very end, then poured on some coconut aminos and sprinkled in a little garlic powder and ginger powder. Voila! A stir-fry that was super quick, flavorful and packed full of phytonutrients. I will be making this stream-lined version fo stir-fry a lot more in the future.

Meal #7: Grandma’s Beef Tips, Mashed Cauliflower, Green Beans

And I threw in a clementine at the end because I’m trying to “eat the rainbow” everyday and hadn’t had any orange yet. It made the perfect dessert. 

That’s it for this week! I hope you’re getting to enjoy spring weather where you are! It has finally spring here and we are out enjoying it as much as we can!
