I know how stressful and exhausting cooking for a family can be. And I know how great I feel when I plan out the week on Saturday, finish all the grocery shopping, and gain that sense of order before Monday sends us out full speed ahead.
In case you don’t know what you’re doing this week, here are some ideas:
Saturday: Caesar salad with Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes
Sunday: Homemade Pizzas with Wegmans dough, sauce, cheese, pepperoni, green pepper, basil, and onion.
Monday: Meatloaf, roasted rosemary potatoes, and green beans.
Tuesday: Black Bean Vegan Enchiladas
Wednesday: Salmon, saffron rice, and roasted brussel sprouts
Thursday: Stir Fry (any veggies in the fridge with Wegman’s Stir Fry Sauce) served over rice.
Friday: Dad’s Turkey Chili (ground turkey, fire roasted tomatoes, kidney beans)
Our Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe
In your blender place the following:
Two handfuls of kale, a chopped peeled apple, two bananas, two pitted medjool dates, a cup of frozen berries, almond / coconut milk, and a few ice cubes. Blend away. The dates bring a sweetness to this smoothie, and my daughters love drinking this after school and on the weekends for good nutrition. We sometimes add yogurt for probiotics, flax seed, and chia seeds.
