Meal Plan 1/7/2019 to 1/13/2019

This week is one of my only full work weeks this year until March. Between birthdays, holidays, and upcoming trips, I have a lot of days off or where I’m working from home. I’m excited for all of our plans, but I’m also grateful that this week is at least relatively normal so that I […]

Honey Mustard Chicken with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Intention:  NutritionServings: 4 One of my favorite flavor combinations is whole grain or dijon mustard mixed with something sweet – honey, or maple syrup if you’re vegan.  It’s this amazing combination of sweet and tangy, and it’s so healthy for the amount of flavor. This basic combination works great on pretty much any meat, but […]

Ginger Roasted Salmon with Broccoli

Intention: Nutrition, Time, EaseServings: 4 I can’t get away with doing actual Meatless Mondays in our household – vegetarian meals are totally not Ben’s thing.  So, I compromise by doing seafood on most Mondays! I absolutely love salmon, and always have. Even as a child, when I was the pickiest eater ever, I loved salmon! […]

Sweet Potato Grain Bowl

Intention: NutritionServings: 4 I love vegetables, but for some reason the word salad just has an off ring to me.  When I hear salad I think of those sad side salads of tasteless romaine and cherry tomatoes that you get at old fashioned restaurants.  Yes, those salads have a time and a place, but when […]

Salsa Egg Scramble

Intention: Time, Money, Nutrition, EaseServings: 1 I’m going to be completely honest here…I am not a morning person.  If it weren’t for our dog (Guster), I probably would roll out of bed just in time to go to work.  Even now, I have a carefully timed routine so that I can walk him and get […]

Pumpkin Omelet

Intention: Nutrition, Time, MoneyServings: 1 This is my go-to weekend recipe for a quick and healthy breakfast! I make the pumpkin mixture ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator. It will keep about 2 weeks (because there’s no dairy) otherwise you can portion it out into 1 cup servings and freeze. Then, on […]

Chicken Stroganoff

Intention: Soul, NutritionServings: 4 My boyfriend absolutely loves stroganoff, but it’s traditionally very high in fat and carbs with low nutritional value.  I took his dad’s recipe and put my own spins on it to fix some of its shortcomings. With extra mushrooms, no extra butter/flour, and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, this version […]

Meal Plan 12/31/2018 to 1/6/2019

Each week, usually during a lunch break or while I binge watch Chopped, I create my meal plan for the following week. For me, this is fun, because I love reading recipes and creating my own. But, I know not everyone shares my weird love of recipe creation, so I thought I’d share my meal […]

Cauliflower Pizza with Mint Pea Sauce and Feta

Intentions: Time, NutritionServings: 4 When it comes to lunches, I have a few requirements.   They have to be something I can make quickly on a Sunday or Monday night, and reheat throughout the week.  One of the most important things when it comes to healthy meal planning is knowing your lifestyle and what you’re […]
