I didn’t know what to title this post, like do I start all over again, do I need a year date now that it’s in the second year? I couldn’t decide so I just decided to carry on as usual. New year, same me.
I’ve filled this weeks plans with mostly quick and simple food filled with a colourful array of vegetables and good for you things like salmon, and legumes and avocado. Because even if I haven’t made resolutions I know some people have and will be wanting all the health. That might even be how you ended up on this page. And if so remember, you’re great just as you are but your body might occasionally want some nutrients so eat some greens and all the other coloured vegetables and you’ll be okay. See a nutritionist before embarking on crazy new year fad diets. Or just don’t embark on a fad diet and go see a qualified nutritionist instead. I’m not one, I’m just hear to share recipes:)
If not having to come up with an idea for a yummy meal filled with good for you things each night is something that might work for you then read on because there’s two meal plans below and there will be two every week this year. One vegetarian and one eat anything one (that still has 2 vego meals because I’m a big believer in alternate sources of protein being a part of your diet).
Day 1: Fragrant Dahl with Chickpeas, Zucchini and Spinach – get a meat free meal in at the start of the week and feel all holier than thou. Plus it makes 6 serves so work lunches will be sorted if you’re back at it this week.
Day 2: Crispy Skinned Salmon with creamy green sauce – make it look fancy or serve it in a bowl with some quinoa.
Day 3: Sticky Lemongrass Chicken Thighs on Crispy lettuce. Serve with rice and extra greens for a simple meal you can cook inside or outside on the BBQ.
Day 4: Cauliflower Pita Pockets with hummus, tasty little packages that will be ready in 35 minutes.
Day 5: Crispy Chilli Paste Prawns with Rice Noodles and Greens – so much flavour, perfect with a cold beer on a Friday night 😉
Day 1: Kung Pao Mushroom Noodles – get some spice in you to start the week
Day 2: Fragrant Dahl with Chickpeas, Zucchini and Spinach a tasty and filling curry that freezes well too!
Day 3: Chipotle Tofu Bowls: yummy bowls of Mexican flavoured goodness.
Day 4: Easy Lentil Salad – one of my favourite go to salads for a quick dinner or lunch.
Day 5: Cauliflower Pita Pockets with hummus easy and delicious.
And your bonus this week: Mango and Coconut Icey Poles are where it’s at this summer!
