We’re speeding through February at a frankly alarming rate and I really don’t want summer to come to an end. I love the warm weather and long nights with beautiful light that come with Summer and I’m definitely not anywhere near ready for that to end. So this week I’m going to keep celebrating the warmth with summer appropriate food.
This week we’ve got some old favourites mixed in with new recipes that are on high rotation in my house! The warm weather has me loving salad bowls, easy pastas and one pan meals that mean minimal time spent washing up.
We’re now past the year mark, 53 weeks worth of recipe combinations for you all – that’s an epic amount of choice right there. This weeks recipes are full of a variety of vegetable to brighten up your week.
The long weekend has been full of relaxing beach times for me and not thinking about food prep… but it’s that time again and the best way to get my week on track is planning it a little in advance. For me that usually means planning what recipes I’m testing and writing these meal plans based for you!
Ummm so we’re already halfway through january and that’s a little crazy. I’ve already got my first illness for the year which is just fabulous. Actually, it’s not even that bad and my body seems to be doing it’s thing and fighting in just fine as long as I keep fueling it with the good stuff. So get ready for the good stuff, lots of vibrant colours as healthy fats this week!
It’s been such a busy week this week but I feel like that’s just the vibe for December right? Christmas parties are happening, summer is happening and the end of the year is quickly approaching. I’m trying to keep my week night meals as wholesome and nourishing (I hate using that word for some reason!) so that’s what this weeks meal plans are all about: keeping the balance in comparison to the December party time mayhem.
It’s officially summer! Although in Melbourne you wouldn’t know it as it’s decided to be decidedly unsummery (it’s a word) to start off the season. I hope everyone is getting through the rain without any major damage! This week’s plans are full of salads, noodles, tacos and burgers because that’s what i’ve been into eating at the moment- lucky you.
This week I’ve got all the pretty colours planned for you! Keeping a variety of plant foods in your diet is so important. I usually aim for about 30 different plant foods each week. This might sound like a lot, but with the 5 meals in each meal plan this week you will easily reach that! My lovely friend Mel from the Nutrition Effect recommends 40, and if you can get 40 in 5 meals then 40 is super doable.
This week has flown past thanks to the long weekend and I feel like I was only writing last weeks meal plans a day ago. But here we are again and this week is full of tasty things, as per usual because that’s the whole point isn’t it?
