All my boys were out of town this week, leaving fewer mouths to feed, and fewer meals to prepare – four dinners and one easy breakfast. Each of these recipes provides ample leftovers. Enjoy!
I’m also excited to share a recent article I wrote that was published by the Whole Life Challenge, “How to Define, Establish, and Enjoy Balance in Your Life“. This was a fairly personal project that I’m proud to share (and also a bit nervous). Please read, let me know your thoughts, and share with your friends and family. Thank you!
Saturday- I’m including this in this week’s post because it’s a great lesson for me (and you). We wanted to love this easy one-pan Sheet Pan Pork with Fennel and Apples, but the flavors didn’t quite mesh together. If we were going to make this again, we’d make some major changes to the ingredients and prep. Here’s the recipe we’ll use next time.
Sunday – We prepared Dan Dan Noodles for weekday lunches using Pad Thai-style rice noodles and adding a healthy serving of steamed broccoli. Fast, easy, and spicy (you can adjust the spice level to your taste).
Monday – We loved this super-delicious Creamy Miso Chicken Salad with Tahini Butter Sweet Potatoes! Savory, tangy, salty, and sweet = So Good!
Tuesday – This modern take on a classic dinner is a happy compromise meal for my family. My sons love spaghetti and meatballs; I love veggies. Enter Paleo Turkey Meatballs mixed with shredded zucchini.
Wednesday Easy Breakfast – These Peanut Butter Banana Muffins (no dairy or wheat) are perfect for a breakfast on the go, pre-run snack, or post-workout recovery. Actually, they’re great as an anytime snack; there’s no justification needed to enjoy!
