Ease into Monday morning…here’s a video of cute puppies to help.
Are you ready to cook some delicious, real-food meals for the week?! Abs are made in the kitchen. 80% of your body’s appearance is based on what you eat….and anything else I can say to convince you.
Monday- Grilled Vegetable Stack with Lemon Hummus – Naturally gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan. Roast the veggies if you’re not into grilling, make your own hummus OR use store-bought, and leave out any of the vegetables you don’t like!
Tuesday- Sometimes your just want a sandwich, so that’s what’s on the menu today. I’m going to take some of the vegetables and hummus from Monday’s meal, add some turkey, maybe some bacon, and eat it on a toasted Udi’s bagel.
Wednesday-Thai Pumpkin Ramen Soup– Gluten, grain, egg, nut, and dairy free. Leave out the chicken and add beans or lentils to make it vegetarian. Use whatever noodles you want! Or leave out the noodles entirely, and eat over brown rice or quinoa. ***Recipe calls for “coconut aminos.” This is a paleo version of soy sauce, because it’s soy and wheat free. If you have no wheat or soy issues, bust out the Kikkoman.
Thursday- Crock Pot Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers This recipe is more of an idea….fill the peppers with whatever meat, vegetables, and spices that your family likes. Naturally gluten free; can easily be made vegetarian or vegan.
Friday- Smoky Corn and Zucchini Cakes – Gluten free and vegan. Serve with salad to make it a meal. Can also be served as a side dish, if you’d like to roast some chicken or if you’ve picked up a pre-made rotisserie chicken this week.
Saturday Veggie Curried Avocado Coconut Rice Bowls– Say that 5 times fast…gluten free, vegetarian, and can be vegan if you use all maple syrup instead of honey, and leave out the cheese. Can add meat for carnivores too!
Sunday Grain and Garbage free Chick-Fil-A Take that Chick-Fil-A. I will eat you on Sunday. This recipe is, umm….delicious. And much healthier for you and the fam. Can easily double or triple the recipe. The husband has requested biscuits with this, so I’ll also be making these: Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits using Cup4Cup . To make vegan, use Earth Balance “butter,” and make buttermilk by adding apple cider vinegar to any plant based milk.
