Meal Plan 7.0

We are rounding the corner into March and its starting to feel more like spring every day. The pup and I are loving lunch time walk weather more days than not. March is full of lovely spring holidays including St. Patricks day and Easter and brace yourselves because we also have daylight savings this month. Do we lose an hour or gain an hour??? I never know and my kids aren’t even small anymore! I just know that it usually makes me feel tired and slightly confused for a few days, ha!

Its been a doozy of a week for both Kimberly and I and we have learned things about bodies that have taken us a bit to process. I would say we both eat fairly well and are mindful to keep our nutrition in a good place for ourselves and our families but sometimes we have to change and shift things to try to benefit the changes in our health. We have learned this week that we will both need to be a little more mindful of our fiber and protein intake as we move into the next phase of our lives. If you’ve ever tracked your nutrition, then you might know that fiber can be a bit of a challenge. I remember learning that my big ole bowl of salad I was eating at lunch had very little fiber to it! Anyhow, if you see a little extra fiber showing up in the meal plans, join us for the ride…your insides will thank you!

MondayCheeseburger salad by skinnytaste This has been a favorite for a long time in our house. Don’t skip the sauce, its the best part. I like to serve it with some sweet potato fries on the side.

Tuesday – Taco night! Of course. Great news…did you know avocados are high in fiber! They really are a super food between all that fiber and their glorious fats. Don’t skip the guac!

Wednesday – Salmon, roasted broccoli and roasted sweet potatoes. I really do like to incorporate salmon once a week whenever possible. If you have a Trader Joes nearby grab some of their salmon rub in the seasoning section, its amazing! I’ve been enjoying my roasted broccoli with just some olive oil and some everything but the bagel seasoning lately. I just throw it in the oven at the same time as the salmon and it all is ready just about the same time! 425 for about 20 minutes. If I’m doing broccoli and salmon in the oven, sometimes I like to cube up the sweet potato and just pan fry it in the cast iron with some olive oil, salt and pepper.

ThursdayBeef and Lentil Stew I love a good stew no matter what the season is. This one adds in the lentils for a boost of fiber! I’ll throw in a loaf of sourdough to go along with it :). Because we love carbs too.

FridayBuddah bowl with peanut sauce We love a good bowl at our house! I will add chicken to this recipe to beef up the protein content and if I’m lucky there might be leftovers for lunch! (who am I kidding…my kids eat me out of house and home these days)

Saturday – Burger night! We have our first track meet of the season so I will need something quick and easy after a long day of being out and about! We like to keep burger night SUPER simple and I will grab a bag salad kit, and some frozen fries (Alexia brand is our favorite!) plus all the toppings (pickles please!).

Weekend treatThe perfect paleo chocolate chip cookie I linked these in our IG stories this past week and we will preface this with saying we are not paleo eaters nor do we follow any specific diet but we really love this recipe! Kimberly found it and shared it with me and its a favorite for both of us! It makes the most perfect chewy soft cookies. We like ours with flaky sea salt on top of course :).

Happy Eating!
