Happy Valentine's Sunday! Nothing says love like a little weekly meal planning right? My husband thinks I am so romantic. <3
I won't lie, Valentine's Day is not a big holiday around our household. However we do enjoy any excuse to cook up a delicious meal. We are staying in, cranking up pandora & going to enjoy cooking together this evening. Therefore I wanted to share our grocery haul & what's going to be on our plates (or mostly bowls) this upcoming week.
Sunday Meal Prep:
~ Bison & Bean Chili: a new recipe we are testing out.
~ Chicken Mofonago: love this meal, link to recipe below.
~ Egg Muffins: making spinach, red pepper & feta.
Weekly Grocery Haul - Total Spent $91.22
~ Ground Bison
~ Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
~ Applegate Deli Turkey
~ Liquid Egg White
~ Cottage Cheese (unsalted)
~ Stoneyfield Plain Greek Yogurt
~ Canned Salmon
*we have eggs & local yogurt in the fridge already.
~ Green Bell Peppers
~ Green Plantains
~ Frozen Broccoli
~ Lemons & limes
*we still had kale, avocado, sweet potatoes & spaghetti squash.
~ Canned Tomatoes (varying for chili/mofongo)
~ Whole Almonds
~ GF Rolled Oats
~ Canned Black & Kidney Beans
~ Canned Boneless/Skinless Salmon
~ Unsweetened Almond Milk
And that's a wrap. So how will our meals look this week based on these groceries?
Breakfasts: Eggs, egg muffins or cottage cheese/yogurt bowls for me. My husband sticks with yogurt & homemade granola.
Lunches: I usually will eat a salad topping w/ deli meat, leftovers or I keep frozen turkey patties & such on hand for quick make meals. The hubby eats out for lunch....yes everyday.. no comment!
Dinners: Mofongo, chili or we keep frozen salmon on hand if we get bored with those options. I add sautéed kale or a spinach salad on the side of each dinner for extra veggies.
Snacks: Check out my Vlog to see what I stick with for healthy snacks on the go: VLOG - Healthy Snacks on the Go
What's on your meal plan this week??
Chicken Mofongo Recipe: we tweaked the following recipes just a bit after a few attempts. While i have no problem w/ bacon, we actuallyleave it out because it overwhelms the dish. We use 4 chicken breasts for extra protein. We first tried mofongo in Puerto Rico & fell in love. This is definitely a different version but something new to add to the mix: Chicken Mofongo Recipe
