sunday: Lasagna rolls inspired by this recipe. I substituted the mozzarella cheese for 1 cup roasted & mashed sweet potatoes. Before I rolled up the lasagna noodles, I also added a layer of bolognese sauce (that I had made last month and stored in the freezer for quick dinners) and slices of roasted tomatoes. Then I topped each lasagna roll with some parmesan before baking. I completely left out the tomato sauce.
Served with a strawberry + tomato salad.
monday: Same as sunday, but with broccoli instead of a salad.
salmon cakes: 2 cans salmon + 1 egg + 7 (ish) saltine crackers, crushed. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Form into 6 patties. Coat patties in cornmeal. Heat some olive oil in a pan and fry salmon cakes until light brown. Serves 2-3.
thursday: Braised white beans with chicken and parmesan. I used rosemary instead of thyme. And I added some green peas.
Served with a side of homemade focaccia (leftovers from the freezer).
saturday: Out to eat Mexican food at my favorite place with my parent, sister and her boyfriend. It’s not a good chicken fajita unless the tortilla is doughy. LOVE this place.
Salad with leftover chicken meatballs + strawberries + red bell peppers + tomatoes + avocado + english muffin with Cabot Horseradish cheese (I love this cheese. And the husband is hesitant to try it…more for me.)
half a whole wheat english muffin + peanut butter + banana + my recent go-to chocolate
Starbucks’ iced coffee with 2% milk. It was super bitter. I’m not a big coffee drink. Mainly because hot coffee hurts my stomach. But I was really feeling it iced…like coffee ice cream.
I couldn’t pick one. So here’s my two favorites…
Loved this! Will definitely be making again!
Breakfast Bake: 1/2 cup oats + 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1 tbsp raisins + pinch salt + 1/2 cup mashed fruit (i did a mix of banana and pumpkin) + 2 tbsp water + 1/4 tsp vanilla.
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix it all together. Scoop into a greased ramekin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Topped mine with peanut butter. I’m in a nut butter rut. What’s your favorite brand? I feel a trip to whole foods coming soon so I can look at all the ridiculously delicious options…
1000 Rep Workout via Peanut Butter Fingers’. I did high knees instead of doing jumping jacks and I did the chest press on the ground instead of a bosu (I wasn’t coordinated/balanced enough for that haha). Still really loving circuit workouts!
