We ended up eating out a lot last week because I ran out of steam to cook. This week I have decided to use my crockpot more in order to avoid some of the fast food. My goal in general is to move back towards more of a Paleo diet, but those recipes can be more time-consuming to make sometimes. I really like a lot of the Six Sisters Stuff recipes because they are tasty and easy, so for now I am probably going to use a mix of Paleo recipes and Six Sisters recipes as I work on establishing a routine.
My plan for Meals this week
Below is my general plans for meals this week. Sometimes I will choose to change things around depending on my mood, but this is my general plan.
Last night I made Creamy Ranch Chicken in the crockpot and served it over brown rice. I also threw zucchini and baby carrots in with it while it cooked in the crockpot. It came out pretty good and made for an easy Sunday dinner.
Diestel makes a Turkey Chorizo that Kyle and I both really like that I can get at Whole Foods. I like to use it to make quesadillas, frittata, or breakfast tacos. We usually do some type of breakfast for dinner at least once a week. Monday night I am going to make a frittata with the turkey chorizo, spinach, and bell pepper. I may also sneak in some other veggies. We will probably have it with some biscuits.
I will use the leftover Turkey chorizo to make quesadillas with some spinach and cheese. I will probably make roasted squash and zucchini to go with it because I have a lot that I purchased from the Farmer's Market on Saturday.
Wednesday night I have class so we will usually do leftovers, wraps, or I will make something in the crockpot. This week I am going to make Crockpot Picadillo. Picadillo is really tasty on rice, a salad, or in tacos. Kyle prefers it as a taco. I like it all three ways. Once again I will probably sneak in some extra veggies in the Picadillo because I have a lot from the Farmer's Market.
I have class again. We will do leftovers.
We will probably finish off leftovers, eat Chick-Fil-A at least once, and I will also make Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs in the crockpot. You can read about the recipe I use from this post.
As you can see I am using my crockpot a lot this week. I am hoping it will help me be more successful with meals this week. How is your eating going with the back to school craziness?
