Happy Friday, y’all! Whew it’s been a long week of kids not listening and sharing their colds with me – you know, #momlife. There’s definitely a light at the end of the tunnel though, as my parents will be in town for the week to celebrate my 30th birthday(!) next Wednesday. This week’s clean eating meal plan might be a little more adventurous than usual since we will have guests all week and I’ll actually have time to cook since the girls will be occupied – in fact, there’s just ONE slow cooker recipe planned for next week…crazy! 🙂
Clean Eating Meal Plan for the Week
Creamy Southwest Chicken with Cauliflower Rice + Broccoli – I’ve actually put this on our menu twice before and for whatever reason, we didn’t end up making it! It’s perfect for a low carb, high-fat day on Faster Way to Fat Loss since it has full-fat coconut milk.
Pork Chops with Apples + Greens – We technically had these a few weeks ago but they’re my favorite and pork chops are on sale this week at Sprouts (their meats are the best!).
Shrimp + Grits with Green Beans – I haven’t decided yet if I want cauliflower ‘grits’ or the real thing since it’s my birthday! I have noticed I naturally eat low carb without really trying, so I’ve been making a conscious effort to consume more carbs to meet my daily goals, so I might opt for real grits this time.
Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free Lasagna – This is Lindsay’s recipe that I’ve been wanting to make ever since she shared it on her blog! I normally do a zucchini lasagna, but my husband prefers the real thing, so this dairy- and gluten-free option should be a good compromise!
Taco Night – Easily the girls’ favorite dinner and means we can have a pleasant meal without begging them to eat! I usually put mine on a salad and have it with some plantain chips. I also like to make Mexican cauliflower rice as a side.
