Real Food Menu for Week of 10.12.2020

This rainy, but busy weekend was filled with last minute plans. On Friday, a friend and I hatched a plan to walk the Salem Half Marathon on Saturday morning. We chatted and strolled that hilly(!) course in light drizzle. The remnants of hurricane Delta. While in Salem I discovered a new gardening project that consumed the second half of the day. I kind of {heart} emergency gardening! More on that later this week.

This week’s menu is chock full of some of our very favorite meals! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it:

Mark’s Breakfast:
PBJ Overnight Oats – All the flavors of the sandwich for breakfast! None of that unnecessary bread.

Mark’s Lunch:
Spicy Pumpkin Chili – So good. I used 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and one can each of kidney beans and black beans. This keeps for several days in the fridge, tastes even better reheated and freezes well. That’s a cooking win in my book!

Dinners:

Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – Tried and true! Very customizable. Add what you like, leave out the rest. We sub parmesan for the goat cheese.

Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Chickpeas and Spinach – New Recipe! Here’s a satisfying meatless meal. It won’t win any beauty contests, but it’s tasty nonetheless. The touch of cream cuts the acidity of the tomatoes.

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 most enjoy. 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.

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers – Because I’m no longer doing keto, I use ground turkey and add a little pre-cooked brown rice to the filling. These freeze well; make a few extra to keep on hand for one of those too-busy-to-cook evenings.

Snack:
No Bake Energy Balls – New Recipe! Okay, so these are dangerous! We rated these little goodies a 10. Use them for a snack, treat, pre or post work-out. Go ahead and make a double batch and stash some in the freezer…if they make it that far.

Treat:
Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip for One – Or double the batch and make enough for two! We like a sprinkle of Lily’s chocolate chips. This dip is delicious with strawberries or orange slices. For the other fruit dips pictured here, see this post.

Happy Monday! I hope it’s a beautiful start to your week.

Real Food Menu for Week of 10.13.2019

Well, if this isn’t the most autumnal menu, I don’t know what is! I think we’ve covered all of the bases with apples, pears, nuts, seeds, pumpkin and even a touch of pumpkin pie spice.

Breakfast:
Pumpkin Seed Granola – New Recipe! This is scrummy! (I feel like I don’t use that word enough in casual conversation.) I sweetened with monk fruit instead of maple syrup. Without the syrup to bind it, my granola didn’t form clusters when baked, but that doesn’t affect the flavor one bit. I added lots of cinnamon (3 tablespoons or so) and a dash of vanilla. Bonus points for making your house smell like pumpkin pie while it’s baking. This would be delicious with diced apples on top.

Bake until it’s golden brown.

Lunch:
Greek Chicken and Rice Bowls – New Recipe! We’ll leave the olives and feta out of Mark’s. The dressing is red, because I used the last of the purple basil from the herb garden. This recipe is a winner!

Prepping lunches before the work week starts makes mornings smoother.

Dinner:

Spicy Pumpkin Chili – New Recipe! So good. I used 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and one can of kidney beans and black beans. I omitted the chickpeas. We’re not anti-chickpea, I just didn’t have any on hand.

Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – New Recipe! Do yourself a favor, and make this salad. It’s amazing. I ran out of goat cheese, so I used parmesan. Delicious!

Snacks:
Nuts, Seeds, Greek Yogurt, Fruit, Popcorn, Cucumber Slices with Homemade Hummus

Treat:
Apples and Cinnamon Treat – I don’t know that I would call this a recipe, but if we have a craving for something sweet, this is a good option. Mark loved it!

I hope your week is a happy one!
