Meal Plan Monday-3/4/19

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all had a good weekend.. mine was pretty low key including grocery shopping, family time and some walks outside ... oh and a MIA step 2 car... if you saw my insta stories you know what I’m talking about!

I headed into work for a few hours yesterday and am slowly getting back into the swing of things. I also had my first workout and it felt AMAZING.

1st workout in the books!

I wanted to share this weeks recipes and a recap from last week. We really liked the seasoning that I had last week for salmon and I TOTALLY recommend it! Awesome on salmon!! You can purchase it below.

Paul Prudhomme Seafood Magic

The stir fry recipe was a win- I would definitely make it again! It’s linked here.

I saw basically ZERO movement in the scale this past week.. however yesterday I was able to fit in size 25 Madewell jeans so I’ll chalk that up as a win (one size up from pre-pregnancy). Sometimes you don’t necessary see movement in the scale; but in how you look, feel and how things are fitting! Now that I am officially cleared I know I’ll ((slowly)) make more progress!

This weeks recipe lineup is as follows:


Monday: Sunbasket stir fry-See photo. It was so good.

Tuesday - Lamb tacos (Sunbasket) A note on this meal: Lamb isn’t something we eat a ton of but I do like it through the sunbasket meals. It tends to be with Greek recipes and I love the seasonings they send for the recipe. I’m all about variety for dinner (usually dinner and lunch I stick to the basics) and we enjoy this every one in awhile! I’ll post a photo tonight of the finished product!

FYI- we use Sunbasket probably 3/4 weeks and we love it. It changes things up, is a great service, is healthy, and is great portion control!! Because it is a serving size for 2 (you can pick for 2, or for a family) I usually don’t involve the kids in the meals. Sometimes for a pasta dish I do but generally I use these meals in the beginning of the week when my husband works late and misses dinner with the kids anyway.

Wednesday- chicken cordon blue via skinny taste. And of course I always use Sahlens Deli Ham! This is a super easy to make meal and a lot of times I make it ahead of time and put it in the fridge so it’s ready for the oven when I need it to be- because sometimes as you all know.. babies get hungry at the most in opportune times! Lol. I really recommend this recipe and have been making it for the last 2 years or so.

Thursday: My hot chicken recipe (linked here) If you haven’t tried this…this should be on your menu for next week!!

Friday: I’m trying this chicken tzaziki recipe from skinny taste. I’ll let you know how it is!!!

Have a great day!
