So I put in place some stricter routines for my eating to get myself back on track with healthier (and super tasty!) eating and to save some money! I spent a Saturday planning out meals, cleaning out the cupboards and fridge, and stocking up with the ingredients I needed for the week. I was tired of feeling bloated and ready to fuel my body with what it needed to be at full speed! Not only am I feeling better but I’ve really found some amazing recipes which helped add some variety to the Lean Cuisines I also picked up for quick lunches throughout the week.
5 Easy & Delicious Recipes to Try This Week
Day 1 – Dinner: ‘Pan-Seared Salmon with Creamy Avocado Sauce’ from kitchenswagger.com
The sauce on top of the salmon was divine! It was easy to make too with the help of my little food processor. Paired with some steamed vegetables, this was a great dinner to enjoy after a busy day.
Day 2 – Lunch: a colorful salad to take to the office
I’m getting better at blending tastes and building more creative salads and I’m loving the results! This salad has a spring mix salad mix and butter lettuce base with chopped red bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, blackberries, and tomatoes. Top off with some fresh italian cheese blend and poppy-seed dressing.
Day 3 – Dinner: ‘One Pan Healthy Italian Sausage & Veggies’ from chelseasmessyapron.com
I loved the flavor of this dish. It was so easy to make too. Just chop everything up, toss with the seasonings, throw on the pan and cook. Wah-lah dinner is ready!
Day 4 – Dinner: ‘One Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas’ from number-2-pencil.com
I let loose a little for Thursday, indulging in a healthier version of fajitas (I love fajitas!). These had such awesome flavor! I loved being able to make it all on one pan for a quick after-work dinner.
Day 5 – Lunch: ‘Sun-dried Tomato Spinach Grilled Cheese Sandwich’ from eatgood4life.com
I worked from home so I was able to cook up a warm lunch. This sandwich had the perfect blend of flavors!
As I find myself getting back to cooking more, I am getting more and more creative and am enjoying my meals so much more. I am also finding coming home and cooking after a long, busy day has been very relaxing too!
