Real Food Menu for Week of 4.13.2020

This coming Saturday is one that we look forward to all year long, simply because it’s Blue Ridge Race Weekend. My siblings from Maryland and Pennsylvania come in with their families and we run, eat and relax together. Our little running club, The Buddy Syndicate (BS, for short) has trained for a year to run the Blue Ridge Marathon Relay and darn it, we were ready!

When the race was cancelled, we opted for the virtual race to be run on race day. Why not? We had no other plans! Then Roanoke City announced they were closing the greenway, so we made a collective last minute decision to run the race in advance of the closure.

Our friend Sue, who is an awesome marketer and graphic designer, created a masterful design for our commemorative shirts. Here’s the front. I love that each little ‘bug’ has it’s own personality!

And the back:

While COVID-19 is messing up everything; we haven’t abandoned our routine of eating real food, made in nature. Here is this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Almond Flour Pancakes with Chocolate Chips – These are for Mark, since I’m still intermittent fasting in the AM. We omit the stevia, add one teaspoon of vanilla, these chocolate chips and serve with fresh fruit on the side.

Lunch:
Veggie Packed Fried Rice – New Recipe! We use coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari as a substitute for soy sauce. Whatever sauce you use, reserve a little to drizzle on top when serving.

Easy Baked Enchilada Chicken – I couldn’t find green enchilada sauce without inflammatory oils, so I reduced salsa verde on the stove to thicken it.

Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – Crunchy and refreshing, this salad will be on repeat until the weather turns cool again!

Mediterranean Sheet Pan Salmon with Zucchini Noodles – We searched every store in town for the za-atar and found it at Kroger. I imagine it’s available at their sister companies in the US.

The Bomb Paleo Chili – Load this up with grated veggies – perfect for using up slightly-less-than-fresh veggies before they keel over entirely.

Snacks:
Nothing new to report in this department. The usual fruit, veggies, hummus and popcorn.

Treat:
Strawberry Pina Colada – New Recipe! I don’t change a thing about this recipe. It has just the right amount of sweetness.

Real Food Menu for Week of 12.15.2019

Slowly but surely, we’re decorating the house for Christmas. We’ve never been early decorators, although I admire those who are. I just can’t get it together. We buy our tree later in the season, so it is fresh for our family visiting between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Don’t want the tree to be the first to leave the party!

Some years we’ve had to buy the Charlie Brown trees due to our tardiness, but we love the scraggly ones just the same. Amid all the last-minute preparations, here’s what we’re eating this week:

Breakfast:
Healthy Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal – Smells and tastes amazing! Bake once, and eat breakfast all week long. We doubled the cinnamon and cut the carbs by using monk fruit maple flavored syrup. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a protein boost.

Lunch:
Crock-Pot Italian Chicken Soup – Creamy (dairy-free!) and packed with flavor, this recipe is a favorite! It’s very forgiving; use whatever veggies you have on hand. If including broccoli, add it during the last hour of cooking so it doesn’t get mushy. Top with chopped parsley and a little parmesan cheese if you like.

Dinner:
Mediterranean Sheet Pan Salmon and Zucchini Noodles – Yum! We ate this a few weeks ago, and my pictures turned out horribly. (Darn you, dark-at-5:00 evenings!) I’ll try to get some good pics and update the post.

Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – We can’t get enough of this one! Subbing parm for the goat cheese.

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken and Dill Greek Yogurt Sauce – New Recipe!

Perfect Roast Chicken – Ina’s recipes are always a home run. This chicken turns out perfectly every time. Great company meal!

Snacks:
Bananas, Apples, Grapes, Avocados, Oranges. Almost daily, Mark makes popcorn in his Whirley-Pop. Who needs potato chips when you’ve got a fresh bowl of hot popcorn? A sprinkling of Lily’s chocolate chips makes it a decadent treat.
We’re also having roasted red pepper hummus with cucumber slices, and an antipasto snack of olives, grape tomatoes and mozzarella pearls. And by *we* I mean *me*; Mark doesn’t do hummus, or olives.

Treat: With all the Christmassing going on, we really don’t need a treat this week. See also, sprinkling chocolate chips on popcorn, above.

How cute are these vintage (1960’s?) popcorn bowls I thrifted a million years ago?!

I hope your week is off to a happy start, with loads of fun activities planned for the days ahead!
