So this week is a pretty exciting week. It’s my birthday week (not that exciting post 30 tbh) and it’s also the week of the BUPA blog awards! I’m nominated in the healthy Eating category and super excited to attend the awards night this Thursday with all the other amazing nominees. I’m also typically excited for this weeks meal plans because they involve some of my favourite things like hummus, prawns, pasta, lemon and fgood you can eat from a bowl.
I feel like I really overuse the word ‘favourite’ at the moment, it’s basically just code for ‘I’m really into that right this second’ because my list of favourites is pretty extensive… and a ll encompassing… and ever changing. I had to re-edit this post as I’d claimed 3 dishes were my favourite thing to eat. It was true in the moment I wrote the sentence! Read on to find the one that got to keep that title this week.
Day 1: Kale broccoli and Lentil Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing. Keep it meat free and serve with a soft boiled egg or two or alternatively follow the instructions in the text above the recipe and have it with some baked salmon.
Day 2: This hummus with green beans and spiced mince is the best. If you’re feeling hungry have some flat bread on the side to scoop up that goodness with. Or just use a spoon, and revel in your low carb greatness.
Day 3: It’s mid week and it’s time for a pasta hit, in particular this lemon and garlic linguini with blistered tomatoes and loads of fresh basil. Serve with a simple green salad with avocado, shaved parmesan and a balsamic and olive oil dressing on the side. High five yourself for having a second meat free dinner this week.
Day 4: Sticky Lemongrass Chicken Thighs on Crisp Lettuce. A side of greens and maybe some steamed of rice will round out this meal. As will Sweet potato fries.
Day 1: Monday’s can be tough so eat lemon and garlic linguini with blistered tomatoes and loads of fresh basil. Serve with a simple green salad with avocado, shave parmesan and a balsamic and olive oil dressing on the side. It’s everything you hope Monday will be.
Day 2: Fried Tempeh, Black Rice and Avocado Bowl with Golden Beet and Edamame Salad If you aren’t a tempeh fan you could try this with tofu.
Day 3: Kale, broccoli and Lentil Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing serve it with a couple of soft boiled eggs per serve to up the protein content.
Day 4: Crispy Coconut and Sesame Cauliflower… because it’s been a while and this is worth coming back to.
Day 5: Quick and Easy Hangover Noodles. I’d eat these every week if I could. I did go through a stage where I did earlier this year.
