The Yankees play today!!! I don’t care how you feel about it; this is all that’s getting me through the day. This is a nostalgic time of the year for me. It makes me miss killing time after school with my bff, waiting for softball practice. We used to nosh on healthy snacks like white cheddar Cheeze-Its and Little Debbie snacks, and washed it down with Diet Coke- balance. Can you imagine eating garbage and then being able to run around for hours? Youth. I can’t even eat a banana and do cardio now without wanting to vom.
Hopefully this dinner menu won’t make you want to vom, and if it does…eat something else.
Monday: Creamy Goat Cheese Asparagus Quinoa Salad– vegetarian and gluten free- Double or triple this recipe to enough as an entree, and maybe some leftover for lunch.
Tuesday: Burrito Bowls with Pineapple Salsa– gluten free and vegan- You can definitely add any protein to this recipe, and any salsa will do.
Wednesday: Salad Bar
Thursday: Lemongrass Pork Meatballs with Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce– use g-free soy sauce- This recipe absolutely must be multiplied…unless you’re not very hungry. I suggest serving with rice or quinoa, and a salad or vegetable if you don’t want to make lettuce wraps.
Friday: Coconut Lime Chicken– You can use this marinade with shrimp or white fish too.
Saturday: Thai Salmon Burgers– Use gluten free bread crumbs, buns, and soy sauce.
Sunday: I believe Americans should eat one hotdog per year, and I’m cashing mine in today. We’re having hotdogs (can’t remember which brand I buy, but they’re 100% beef, organic, no nitrates) wrapped in Auntie Anne’s Style Gluten Free Pretzel dough. My husband and I will miss out on baseball’s opening day together…not important to you, perhaps, but it’s a big deal for us- one of the top 5 days of the year! To modify this recipe, just wrap each hotdog in the dough and drop the baking soda wash…and then continue on with the directions. This dough should be made in advance, and can stay in the fridge for a dew days. Or, use any pretzel recipe you’d like!
