Weekly meal plan
Apr 12 2021
When I get tired of cooking, I retreat to classics and easy dishes that are full proof and family approved from my website! This way I know that everyone will be happy and things are super easy for me!
Monday: White bean soup. Basically, it is very simple! I will sauté some carrots, onions, celery with turkey bacon for a couple of minutes. Add some seasoning and toss in some white canned white beans and veggie stock. Then I will bring to boil and simmer for 10-15 minus and enjoy!
Tuesday: 1 pot chicken with dried apricots and olives... It is just assembling it all and bringing maximum flavor out of this... Any kind of dried fruit works and mixing it with olives just bring a nice balance to this dish... Don't have any of this? Make sure to season it right and it will still be delicious!
Wednesday: Cauliflower mac and cheese. In order to keep it simple as I intend to, making kids happy and also bearing healthy and nourishing dishes in mind, this is hitting the spots on all counts.... I have made this for my videos a while ago!
Friday: Asian fish packets... Steaming the fish in little packs and adding tons of key ingredients for add in flavor, such as green onions, ginger, mushrooms, for sauce, sesame oil,..... Spinach and other veggies that steam quickly might work great here as well!!
Lunch: Baked eggs and greens. I love making eggs for brunch, especially this way since it is so easy to prepare and I know the whole family loves it... This dish is easily adaptable and you can make it work with whatever you ave in your fridge...
Dinner: Wild salmon California bowls. This is from my friend Pamela. The beauty of this is the t you can make it with whatever you have.. Base: grains + proteins : salmon ( or tofu, tune, chicken,...) + veggies (either cooked or crudités such as cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, radishes,... + sauce: soy sauce, sesame oil lemon,...
Lunch: Bagels, salmon and cream cheese.... I found a vendor who delivers unbaked frozen bagels.... So on Saturday, I can bake them fresh, spread some delicious cream cheese, lox or salmon, sliced cucumbers and maybe a crips fresh green salads and done!
Dinner: Chicken satay with asian slaw. I can marinade the chicken ahead of time and have my husband grill them while I assemble the salad... It is all about team work, right?!
