Meal Prep for Week of 6.9.2019

Welcome to another week of clean eating! We’re trying out loads of new recipes this week and we’ve already found a couple of keepers! Noatmeal is a nice change to our usual egg-based breakfasts and fun to come up with new topping combinations. Strawberry/Peanut Butter is my favorite combination so far.

I’ll let the pictures of the Chicken Pot Pie and Philly Cheesesteak Skillet speak for themselves.

Here’s this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Noatmeal – Toppings: Strawberries, Walnuts, Unsweetened Coconut, Lily’s Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter

I mixed up double batches in sandwich bags. Because these have flax seed meal in them, they need to be stored in the fridge. When I empty a bag each morning, I fold it up and put it back into the storage bag; that way we’re not using as many plastic bags from week to week.

Lunch:
Hubs has requested stuffed peppers this week.

Velvety No Bake Keto Brownie Bites – New Recipe! Scroll about halfway down the page to find the recipe. I added a few tablespoons of milled flax seed, so maybe mine aren’t as velvety as the recipe indicates. They’re still tasty, though! I used a 1″ cookie scoop and got 5 fat bombs from a single recipe. The picture below is a triple batch.

I hope you have a great week!

Seriously, this Keto Philly Cheesesteak Skillet is amazing!

Real Food Meal Prep for Week of 5.5.2019

I’m inching closer to keto this week and sharing some family favorite recipes with you!

Ropa Vieja is a delicious, Cuban, shredded beef dish that I’ve made frequently over the past 18 years. My version is Americanized; I take some help from the store and use jarred salsa. If you serve it over cauliflower rice instead of white or brown rice, it’s very low carb. I love the richness of flavor that slow-roasting gives, so I use the Dutch oven. As a bonus, the house smell amazing while it cooks!

Here is this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Blueberry Smoothie – New Recipe!
“Looks so bad, but it tastes so good.” – My husband
Y’all. I have laughed so hard over these smoothies which look NOTHING like the beautiful purple in the recipe photo. These look more like something you would serve at a Grinch party! Trust me, they are tasty, and you know you’re getting your daily dose of green goodness from the spinach. If the kids are constantly drinking your smoothie, offer them this and watch them recoil in horror! Looks can be deceiving.

Lunch: Ropa Vieja
My husband will have his over brown rice, I’ll have cauliflower rice.

Ropa Vieja
325° for 2 1/2 to 3 hours
3 lbs beef chuck roast
1 package (1 oz.) dry onion soup mix – or make your own like this:
https://feedingbig.com/clean-eating-onion-soup-mix.html
1 onion, chopped
1 c. red wine
3 T. coconut oil
1/2 c. salsa – look for salsa with no added sugar
1/2 c. water – optional (I almost never add this)
Garnishes: sour cream, cilantro, lime wedges and avocado

Heat oil in dutch oven, over med-high. Add beef and brown on all sides . Reduce heat, add onion and cook until soft but not browned. Add onion soup mix, wine, salsa and water (if using). Bring to a boil. Cover and place in preheated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Check occasionally to make sure there is sufficient liquid in the pan, add more wine if necessary. Shred beef before serving. Serve over rice, or cauliflower rice for low carb. Garnish as desired.

Dinner:
Keto stuffed bell peppers with side salad
https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/stuffed-peppers-with-ground-beef-and-cheese

Guacamole Bacon Burgers on a lettuce bun – we make lettuce buns two ways:

  • Slice large rounds from the sides of a head of iceberg lettuce.
  • Stack several large leaves of romaine lettuce to make each half of a bun.
