Real Food Menu for Week of 2.24.2020

Now that we’re in the thick of Blue Ridge Training Season, my week nights are a little busier than normal. Which means that simple meals we can throw together quickly are the order of the day. The breakfast cookies are a healthy grab-and-go-because-you-hit-snooze-one-too-many-times option. Crock Pot Italian Chicken Soup practically makes itself! Dump everything into the crock pot, cook on low all day, shred the chicken and you’re done. For a sweet treat, the lemon fruit dip whips up in minutes; serve with your favorite fruits for dipping, or drizzle over a fruit salad. Simple and flavorful!

Breakfast:
Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookies – This is a quick and healthy breakfast option.

Lunch:
Crock Pot Italian Chicken Soup – This soup is soup-er (heh) customizable. Load it up with your favorite vegetables! When using broccoli, add it in the final hour of cooking so it doesn’t get mushy.

Dinner:

Sukuma Wiki – The spices in this dish are amazing. Our lightened up version is made with ground turkey instead of beef.

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – The goat cheese makes this simple supper just a little decadent!

Orange and Cashew Chicken Stir Fry – New Recipe! Every bit as tasty as the restaurant version! We substitute gluten-free tamari for the soy sauce, brown rice for the jasmine and cayenne for the Korean chili flakes.

Kale Salad with Apricots and Almonds – Delicious and light!

Snack:
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus – New Recipe! I usually buy Aldi’s organic version, but I decided to try making it at home using jarred red peppers. Guess what? It’s fantastic! I added three cloves of garlic, but I would go with two next time. It overwhelmed the red peppers just slightly.

Treat:
Creamy Lemon Fruit Dip – Serve with your favorite fresh fruit.

Real Food Menu for Week of 2.17.2020

Cheers to a new week of eating real food! If you are new to Arthurized Home, welcome and thank you for taking the time to read here. My intent for these menus is to provide inspiration to try new dishes while staying within the parameters of clean eating. I define that as eating foods made in nature, not in a factory. My husband and I have a high tolerance for eating the same dishes repeatedly, (see: breakfast and lunch) so this prevents us from getting stuck in a rut. Here’s what’s cooking this week:

Breakfast:
Apple Pie Overnight Oats – New! We almost always double the cinnamon in recipes, and this one is no exception. Toss a little nutmeg in there, too. We topped these babies with chopped apples and pecan pieces.

Lunch:
Simple Pumpkin Soup – Easy and delicious! If you can dice an onion and open a few cans, you’ll have lunch or dinner on the table quickly. We’re have this with a side of our favorite Convert Kale Salad. I made a batch of toasted pepitas to top our pumpkin soup and some extras for snacking.

Huevos Rancheros (Without the Grain) – Simple and quick! If you’re not grain-free, serve this with a side of rice.

Weeknight Tandoori Chicken – New! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this dish. Would it be too spicy? Would hubs hate it? Not to worry, we both enjoyed it. Although, I felt it was a titch too greasy using thighs. The next time I make it, I’ll use chicken breasts. The sauce was tasty enough to eat over the spinach and rice, minus the chicken.
