It’s that meal planning time of the week again! I’m not big on the whole spending my Sunday’s prepping food thing but I do like to take 15 minutes to sort out what I’m eating for the week ahead. I sometimes don’t actually get past the planning stage, actually the shopping part usually happens on Monday after work. That said, if I spend a few minutes planning, writing a shopping list and making some delicious choices on Sunday then it makes my Monday go far easier.
Whoop whoop it’s that time of the week again! Meal planning! Well for you it is… I am in Spain planning nothing but my next day trip. I even did your planning in advance so this little collection is ready to go today. I decided this holiday is all about me turning my brain off so most of these posts are written in advance. Such organisation! Now back to your life…
I don’t know if this is something you’ve picked up on but I’m pretty into a peanut dressing at the moment. There was the coconut poached chicken salad, the tofu schnitzel strips and the satay Tofu. Is it getting repetitive? I hope not because this is another good one! This salad is both refreshing and filling and I’m not going to claim it’s traditional. Let’s call it my take on a Gado Gado salad instead.
DUMPLINGS!!! Give me all the dumplings, always! If somebody wants to do a causal dinner, I’m always like “should we get dumplings?” because I want them always and will take any excuse to go out for them. That said I also love making my ow and these are all kinds of perfect. A delicate filling, delicious spicy broth and greens – this is a health food blog after all.
This is date night pasta. Whether that date is with yourself, a mate or your significant other. The kind of dish that’s impressive but very little effort so you’ll look like a whizz without getting yourself in a state. If tomatoes are in season it is beautiful with roasted Roma tomatoes stirred through, if not then just use a good quality passata. Or alternatively cherry tomatoes, halved and thrown in a pan with a little smashed garlic, chilli, oil and parsley and cooked until blistered is also great (I also make them a bit saucier (in all meanings of the word) by adding a little reserved cooking water from the pasta to loosen the tomatoes into a sauce when I do this.
Happy Sunday folks! I plan on having a day of getting shit done, as balancing full time work and the whole ‘Healthy Hunter’ thing is well, a balancing act. See, my brain is fried. I’m also busy getting holiday prep sorted so I can have a real adventure and not be continuously checking this little blog. Need to learn to let go a little. I have been busily prepping the most delicious of meal plans for you this week. There’s loads of simple week night dinners in both the Vegetarian and Non vegetarian plans. I’ve also thrown in a little something that involves a slight time commitment in each one too. Because challenge helps us grow.
Hello Sunday!!! It’s time to relax, potter, adventure and maybe do a little planning for the week ahead. This week I’ve got two delicious meal plans for you as per usual. One vegetarian, one for the omnivores. There’s a variety of flavour, from the spicy to the mild and from the trashy (buffalo chicken say what?!) to the slightly unusual (can I call it a meatball when there’s no meat in it???). I hope you love the plans!
And it’s February! How’s the year going so far? Such an annoying question, because we all love to be reminded of how fast time passes don’t we? This week, for the majority of them, I’ve tried to make the recipes quick and easy to throw together after work. The whole making things easier for people when it comes to cooking healthier food is totally my vibe this year.
The matcha tinted brown rice in these bowls is topped with flakes of steamed salmon and a cucumber, sesame, mint and pickled ginger salad. The matcha, ginger and fish are such a delicious combination with a beautiful balance of salty sharpness.
