This week is going to be a crazy one! The first 3 days Ed and I will be traveling right outside of DC to get CT scans done on his head. This will be the longest time I have ever been separated from Sammy! Thank god for grandparents!
While I’m gone I am going to keep meals simple, easy, and cheap, which can be super difficult while traveling.
Game Plan: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
(with the thought that I will have a refrigerator)
B-Overnight oats, enough for 2 mornings, with apple and banana to add in. I will be getting my carbs, protein, and fruit
Recipe: 1/2 cup raw oats, 1 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1 tbs. maple syrup, chia or flax seeds, cinnamon. I will be adding in my fruit the day I eat it to it won’t get mushy.
L-Chocolate Shakeo mixed with water, ice, and PB2 powder. Along side my shake0, a RX bar or a Lara bar for some healthy fat and to keep me full
S-carrots, snap peas, mini peppers
D-Eat out, I will try to make the cleanest choices I can, trying to fill up on tons of veggies and lean protein
Thursday, Friday, Saturday:
Good old fashion egg whites and a big bowl of oatmeal with some fresh fruit
Breakfast burrito from last week, check out the meal plan right under this one. I highly recommend them, super filling
Rotisserie Chicken with steamed veggies
…boring but gotta use it up
Butternut squash soup with ground turkey sausage
I use a recipe similar to this one, roast the squash, onion, and apple with salt, pepper and coconut oil first, then add it as directed in the recipe. You can take or leave the curry powder. I also take fresh turkey sausage out of the casing and cook it up to add on top. http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1015484-coconut-butternut-squash-soup
Balsamic pork chops
I made this super simple dish 2 weeks ago and it was a HUGE hit. My husband LOVED it, I already have pork chops in the freezer so I will be making it again for a quick meal. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/pork-chops-balsamic-roasted-vegetables
I love making this recipe, it is so quick, and I always have the ingredients on hand. Take your favorite hummus, top it on a raw chicken breast, add s/p and a drizzle of olive oil. I like to but fresh springs of rosemary, but it is not necessary. Roast at 400, for about 20 minute, depending on the size of your chicken breast. Top with feta, add a side salad, and rice! The best part is it tastes like a restaurant worthy dish! Enjoy
I just got a new variety pack in! I can’t wait to play with some of the flavors. Here is what I am thinking:
Pumpkin spice: Vanilla shake0, 1 tbs. pumpkin, 1/2 banana, dash of pumpkin spice, almond milk, ice
Nutter Butter: Vanilla shake0, 1 tbs. nut butter, banana, almond milk or cashew milk, ice
Vanilla twist: 1/2 Vanilla, 1/2 Caffe Latte, 1/2 cup coffee, almond milk, ice, banana
Go forth and be healthy!
