Like Canis Majoris said in her post, my breakfasts & lunches are pretty boring (read: routine, healthy, don’t take much thought) so I’m not going to designate what days I eat what.
Breakfast is always my fav omelet in the whole wide world (2 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 1 oz. feta or goat cheese, 1/2 roma tomato, 1.5 oz avocado, 1 c. steamed spinach) or Quineuvos Rancheros from Girl’s Gone Child (quinoa, egg, avocado, cilantro, salsa).
Lunch is always a basic chef salad (greens, 3 oz deli meats, 1/2 oz cheese, 10g walnuts, yogurt parmesan dressing), quinoa salad on greens (quinoa, greens, goat cheese, blueberries, walnuts, balsamic), or sometimes leftovers (if my husband didn’t bring them to work).
Snacks are fresh fruit, applesauce, string cheese sticks, almonds, or cottage cheese (though I’ve been doing less of the cheese thing lately).
That being said, here is what I’m laying out for dinners for the week. Hopefully this will help to keep me from munching on cheetos (my weakness lately!) and make it less stressful to be throwing something together when I get home from work. This is from memory of what we have in the fridge, so hopefully it’s about right…
Dinners for the Week
Quinoa stuffed bell peppers from Le Petit Pierogi & Steamed Broccoli
Bok Wok Teriwak from Girl’s Gone Child (basically quinoa with tofu, tempeh, and greens)
(First time trying this!)
Hot dogs, gluten-free pasta, and Olathe Sweet sweet corn.
Yeah, I know, hot dogs aren’t great, but we had them for a BBQ last weekend and I don’t want the rest of the bag to go to waste. Plus, it’s summer!
Chicken Caesar salad (with yogurt parmesan caesar dressing).
Light on the dressing for me. Drowning in dressing for the hubby. LOL
No idea – we’re going up to Tellu.ride for dinner with some friends of ours that are celebrating their 6 year anniversary and spending the night at the Peaks with them. I can’t wait!! I’m hoping we’ll go out for sushi – depends if we can talk my hubby into it. He likes it, but says it never makes him full. I think I’ll force feed him a PB&J first. 😉
Chicken Kebabs (skewers of chicken, artichoke hearts, bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes) w/corn & gluten-free pasta of some sort.
