Tag: Minute Steaks with Quick Chive Butter

Real Food Menu for Week of 4.6.2020

For the past week and a half, I’ve been traveling nowhere except work and home. I feel like I’ve been on house arrest with work release! I’m coming out of that today, and I never thought I would be so happy to (cautiously) go to the grocery store, or for a socially-distanced run.

Cooking from the pantry has been a good experiment and we’ve proven to ourselves that it’s doable for a few weeks at a time, if necessary. When it looked like the Governor might place Virginia under shelter in place, I stocked up on veggies that are good keepers: cabbage, carrots and potatoes, etc. We’ll use some of those up in this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Chocolate Pecan Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookies – If you don’t have a sweet potato, take a little help from the store and substitute canned pumpkin. We add a smidgen of nutmeg to the dough and a sprinkle of these chocolate chips.

Lunch:
Italian Lentil Soup – Classic! Don’t skimp on the veggies.

Spicy Roasted Chickpea Salad – New Recipe! Don’t let the word ‘spicy’, deter you from trying this one; this spice is not heat. Roast the chickpeas and make the dressing ahead of time for quick dinner prep.

Sheet Pan Garlic Butter Salmon and Red Potatoes – Serve with a green vegetable on the side, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Minute Steaks with Quick Chive Butter – I gotta admit, I’ve never been much of a steak fan, but Mark’s been craving them lately. This recipe is a tasty one!

Keto Western Omelette – New Recipe! – As with all Diet Doctor recipes, scale for your crowd. I chopped up extra onions, peppers and ham to freeze for another day. We love these quick, easy meals for evenings when we’re on the run, literally or figuratively.

Snacks:
I used up a bag of dried garbanzo beans last week making hummus and I’m still not sick of it. Hummus with carrots, cucumbers and bell pepper strips is the order of the day. Also, our requisite bananas, grapes, apples and popcorn. We really never tire of it.

Treat:
Double Dark Chocolate Brownies – So good! The recipe says to finely grate the zucchini, but we’re not trying to sneak vegetables past picky eaters, so I give my zukes a regular grate. You can see them in the finished product, similar to a chocolate zucchini bread. If that bothers you, go with the fine grate.

Have a great week!

Real Food Meal Prep for Week of 4.7.2019

Hmm, let’s see: Parmesan in the broccoli salad, mozzarella on the pizza and a cream cheese based spread for the banana bread. Yep, we’re heavier on dairy than usual this week.

Lunch:
Balsamic Chicken with Onions

Balsamic Chicken with Onions – We made this last week using chicken thighs and it was so good that my husband suggested we meal prep it for lunches this week with brown rice and broccoli on the side. I caramelized the onions well before baking.
I didn’t feel comfortable keeping chicken in the fridge for five days, so we kept Monday and Tuesday’s lunches in the refrigerator and put the rest in the freezer.

Dinner:
Minute Steaks with Chive Butter – New recipe

Sukuma Wiki

Perfect comfort food on a chilly spring day! This dish sounds more exotic than it is; and you may have the ingredients on hand already. The blend of spices is amazing. Be sure to drain excess grease from the ground beef if necessary.

Best Ever Broccoli Salad – New Recipe

Cauliflower Pizza – New Recipe – I’m using ground flax seed instead of the psyllium husks.

Breakfast for Dinner – Scrambled Eggs, Bacon and Potatoes

We love breakfast for dinner!

Snacks: Cantaloupe, Apples & Peanut Butter, Grapefruit, Oranges, Bell Peppers, Cashews

It’s nice to have a healthy treat available throughout the week so that we don’t feel deprived or tempted by junk food. This banana bread is very nutrient dense, egg free, dairy free and of course, gluten free.

Treat:
Stupidly Easy Banana Bread

Maple Cream Cheese Spread
I added about a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg to the maple cream cheese frosting recipe linked below. You could whip chilled coconut cream for a dairy-free version. If your mixture is too thick to spread easily, mix in a tablespoon or two of milk or coconut milk.
This is so good, it’s dangerous!
