Real Food Meal Prep for Week of 4.14.19

My husband decided that his first full marathon should be America’s toughest road race, the Blue Ridge Marathon with its 7,430 feet of elevation gain/loss. I’m very proud to say that he successfully completed it, so we’re taking it easy on meal prep today. We’ve planned a few tried and true meals this week.

Breakfast:
Berry Smoothies – Frozen berries (we like strawberries and blueberries), coconut milk, a banana for sweetness, a small handful of baby spinach and/or a half an avocado. Add ice cubes if needed and blend. If you like a sweeter smoothie, add honey to taste.

Berries and Cream Overnight Oats

Lunch:
Chicken Pineapple Curry – This is an easy favorite that we’ve made for several years now. It’s creamy and mild, but you could certainly add some heat if you like. Use one can of coconut milk if you prefer a thicker sauce. We usually serve this over cauliflower rice, or brown rice.

Dinner:
Bowl of Doom – Don’t let the name deter you, there is nothing ominous about this breakfast hash. Simple and satisfying, this recipe feeds two and you can arm-wrestle over the leftovers for lunch the next day. Or fry a couple more eggs, add a veggie side and you’ve got a nice dinner for four. I give the sweet potatoes a 1/4″ dice; and use either ground beef or Jimmy Dean Natural sausage, depending on what’s on hand. If using sausage, I do not add salt.

Shepherd’s Pie
Beef and Vegetable Filling:
1 lb. ground beef
1 T. coconut oil
1/2 c. diced onions, optional
3 – 4 large carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 bag of frozen peas, thawed
12 oz. tomato sauce
1 t. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated – for topping

In a large pan over medium heat, thoroughly brown the ground beef. Remove beef from the pan and set aside. Melt the coconut oil, then saute the onion and carrots until tender. Add the beef, spices and tomato sauce. Mix well, then fold in the peas.

Mashed Potatoes – Two real food options:
Bob Evans Natural Mashed Potatoes are made with the same ingredients you would use at home; Potatoes, Milk, Butter and Salt.
OR
Homemade:
8 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 c. plain sour cream
8 T. unsalted butter
1 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
Add the cubed potatoes to a large pot of boiling water and cook until fork tender. Drain the water and return the potatoes to the pot. Add the sour cream, butter, milk, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. Add more milk if needed.

Spread the beef mixture into a buttered 9″ x 9″ casserole dish, and spoon the mashed potatoes over to cover. Bake at 350° for an hour, covered. Uncover, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and broil for two minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Serve.

This dish can be assembled up to a day ahead of time, refrigerated and baked just before serving.

Teriyaki Salmon

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Such a simple and tasty dinner! We tried this recipe for the first time last week; my husband loved it and suggested that we put it on the menu this week. This comes together so quickly! I had dinner on the table in under 20 minutes, start to finish. I used two teaspoons of coriander, a jar of organic marinara sauce and added a smidgen of crushed red pepper flakes. I knew that trying to sneak goat’s cheese past my husband would be a step too far, so I used shredded cheddar on top.

Meal Prep for the week of 3.10.2019

We’re sticking to a mostly Irish/St. Paddy’s theme with our menu planning this week. I’m also trying something new. I’m posting the recipe link in the menu so that you don’t wear out your scrolling finger! Here’s the menu:

Breakfast:
PBJ Overnight Oats – we tried these for the first time a few weeks back and they were a hit! https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-pb-j-overnight-oats/

Lunch:
Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-stuffed-bell-pepper-soup/
Cheesy Cauliflower Muffins https://kirbiecravings.com/cheesy-cauliflower-muffins/

Dinner:

Balsamic Beef Roast – I’m making enough of this roast to use the beef in Shepherd’s Pie the following day. https://www.5dollardinners.com/balsamic-beef-roast/

Gluten Free Shepherd’s Pie – https://www.noshtastic.com/easy-shepherds-pie/
Take a little help from the grocery store if you don’t want to make mashed potatoes. Bob Evans All Natural Homestyle Classic Mashed Potatoes are made with the same ingredients you would use at home.

Shepherd’s Pie won’t win any beauty contests, but it’s so tasty!

Rainbow Cobb Salad: This one is more assembly than a recipe. Layer your favorite lettuce in the bottom of a large serving dish and then working in rows, place your other ingredients in rainbow order like the photo below. We served this salad when we had family visiting and it is great for parties because your guests can pick and choose what they want.

Lettuce layer: Use any lettuce that you enjoy. We like romaine and baby spinach.
Red (and pink): Do you like how I’ve added pink to the rainbow?
Beets, Cubed Ham, Bacon crumbles, Tomatoes, Sweet Bell Peppers
Orange: Carrots, Sweet Bell Peppers
Yellow: Sweet Bell Peppers, Quartered Hard Boiled Eggs, Corn
Green: Cucumbers, Broccoli, Bell Peppers
Blue: Hmm. There aren’t too many blue veggies out there, so let’s skip right to purple. We layered in pepper jack cheese. Use any cheese you like.
Purple: Red Onions, Purple Broccoli (if you can find it), Shredded Red Cabbage
Serve with your favorite dressing.

Snacks:
Apples and peanut butter, Veggies and homemade dill dip, Bananas, Oranges, Pineapple and Cantaloupe

Treat:
Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chocolate-chickpea-blondies/
