Tag: PBJ overnight oats

Real Food Menu for Week of 7.13.2020

Since I’ve been on the Mediterranean diet, I’ve been in a bit of a fruit and nuts rut where snacks are concerned. I’ve recently found za’atar spice, and this one is a game-changer! I want to sprinkle this Middle Eastern seasoning onto nearly everything. Delicious on fish and chicken, it would be equally at home in place of Italian seasoning in salads and savory side dishes. (Say that three times fast!) I found za’atar locally at Kroger. See how we’re seasoning and snacking with it below.

Breakfast:
PBJ Overnight Oats – An old standby, and perfect for hot (already!) summer mornings.

Lunch:
Convert Kale Salad – We mixed up a double batch of this favorite salad for Mark to enjoy at lunch. It’s been so hot here that a cool plate of salad and a sliver of watermelon are all he really wants mid-day.

Dinner:

Marinated Three Bean Salad – New Recipe! – Here’s a Mediterranean twist on the traditional three bean salad. If the dressing is too tart for your liking, add a touch of honey. Just a teaspoon should do.

Middle Eastern Chicken Kebabs – Oh my word! Sprinkle some za’atar on these babies! When we’re cooking for a crowd, we use bamboo skewers, but when it’s just the two of us, we use stainless.

Basic Tahini Sauce
https://mythreeseasons.com/tahini-dressing/

Grilled Peach Quinoa Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette – New Recipe! The unusual flavor combos in this dish surprised us. I never would have paired peaches and kalamata olives together, but it works beautifully! Make a little extra dressing; it might just become a new favorite.

Bowl of Doom – The name sounds ominous, but this dish is filled with all good things. Use whatever ground meat you have on hand, or go meatless for a vegetarian option. Packed with protein, it’s delicious any time of the day.
https://thedefineddish.com/bowl-of-doom-sweet-potato-and-bison-breakfast-hash/

Snacks:
Watermelon, Cucumber slices with hummus, Za’atar Snack – New! Take dipping bread in olive oil one step further with this flavorful snack. There’s no real recipe here, just dip crusty bread in good olive oil and then lightly dip in za’atar spice and eat.

Treat:
Avocado, Coconut and Sweet Potato Brownies – New Recipe – This one is a bit of a swing and a miss, but I thought I would share it anyway. While the flavor was good, the texture was just a bit…off. These remind me of that time I made a batch of fudge that just never quite set up. YMMV.

If you’re looking for something closer to a conventional brownie, give these a whirl:

Double Dark Chocolate Brownies: We like Lily’s chocolate chips in this recipe. They’re becoming easier to find now, even Walmart carries them in the baking aisle.

Have a great week, everyone!

Real Food Meal Prep for Week of 4.21.2019

We’re eating Easter leftovers for the next few days, so meal prep this week is super easy. I don’t think we will need five dinners, but two are simple salads that we can eat along side our leftovers. Here is this week’s plan:

Breakfast:
PB&J Overnight Oats – Yes, we’re a one-trick pony! But it’s a tasty trick.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-pb-j-overnight-oats/

Lunch:
Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Chicken Skillet
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/sweet-n-spicey-pineapple-chicken-skillet/

Dinner:
Chicken with Carrots and Bacon – We saute the bacon and serve it crumbled on top of the chicken. No, this dish is not swimming in grease, it’s a tasty white wine sauce!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chicken-bacon-skillet/

Best Ever Broccoli Salad – This salad is served warm and is a nice alternative to the classic broccoli salads with mayonnaise based dressing. Three tablespoons of vinegar is a little too tangy for our tastes, so we use two.
https://thestonesoup.com/blog/2018/11/20/best-ever-broccoli-salad/

Garlic Butter Salmon
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/one-sheet-pan-garlic-butter-salmon/

Greek Salad – I left the black olives and feta out because Mr. Arthurized Home doesn’t care for them. This salad is just as tasty without them. We leave the pinch of sugar out as well. This recipe has been a favorite for several years and will be in regular rotation all summer long.
https://www.spendwithpennies.com/greek-salad/


Breakfast for Dinner – Needs no explanation!

Snacks:
Celery and Bell Pepper strips with Dill Dip, Cucumbers, Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Cantaloupe

Treat:
Stupidly Easy Banana Bread – I threw in a handful of Lily’s chocolate chips this time around. The next time I bake this, I’ll try them in muffin cups because I’m having to bake the loaf on the high end of the time range.
https://thestonesoup.com/blog/2015/03/31/stupidly-easy-banana-bread/

Have a great week, everyone!

Meal Prep for the Week of 3.31.2019

Happy Monday to you! Our weekend was crazy-busy which is a little unusual for us. We painted our bedroom last week so we played catch-up on all the delayed chores while the house was turned upside down.

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

Breakfast:
Tuesday, April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day in the US, so it seems like the perfect time for PBJ Overnight Oats. Plus, they’re insanely tasty! For a smooth mixture, whisk the PB and J together before the other ingredients.

PB&J Overnight Oats

Lunch:
BLT Bowls with Cabbage – New recipe
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/blt-bowls-with-cabbage-eat-clean/

Dinner:
Ina’s Perfect Roast Chicken with Carrots and Onions
https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/perfect-roast-chicken-recipe-1940592
Lemon Baked Cod – New recipe
https://momfoodie.com/lemon-baked-cod/
Meatballs and Marinara with Zoodles – I don’t bother baking the meatballs separately. In a large skillet, bring the marinara sauce to a simmer and carefully place the meatballs in the sauce so they are not touching each other. Simmer for about twenty minutes or until cooked through. While the meatballs are simmering. saute the zucchini noodles in a separate skillet. Drain liquids from the zoodles and serve with meatballs and sauce on top. A little sprinkle of parmesan and Italian parsley doesn’t hurt! https://cleananddelicious.com/easy-meatball-recipe-gluten-free-paleo-whole-30

Meatballs and Marinara with Zoodles
My husband cooked, styled and photographed this one. I think he did a great job!

Teriyaki Salmon and Veggies – We use tamari to make this gluten free.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/homemade-teriyaki-salmon-meal-prep/
Balsamic Chicken with Onions – New recipe: I’m going to try this with chicken thighs, brown rice and green beans on the side.
https://www.5dollardinners.com/balsamic-chicken-with-onions/

Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon and Veggies – not the prettiest dinner, but it’s flavorful!

Snacks:
Cantaloupe, Pineapple, Grapes, Apples, Oranges, Bananas
Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Celery and Peanut Butter, Cheddar Cheese

Treat: Coconut Snowballs
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/coconut-snowballs-recipe/

Be on guard today for any April Foolin’ and have a fantastic week!

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:
Teriyaki Salmon with Broccoli and Carrots – I use gluten free tamari instead of the soy sauce. https://cleanfoodcrush.com/homemade-teriyaki-salmon-meal-prep/

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.
https://www.bobevansgrocery.com/products/bob-evans-natural-homestyle-classic-mashed-potatoes/


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

Clean convenience food. This is the package you are looking for.
Make sure that it says All Natural, not Original.
Made with: Potatoes, Milk, Butter and Salt.

Sliced Steak Tagliata with Sweet Potato Wedges and Warm Tomatoes in Vinaigrette – This dish sounds fancier than it is and comes together very quickly.
https://www.hellofresh.com/recipes/sliced-steak-tagliata-5a4e74c4c2880042c2002211

Steak Tagliata

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/

Let me know if you try these recipes. I hope your week is filled with St. Paddy’s fun and shenanigans!
