Meal Planning – Week 3

I’m back from Disney World! I had a great time and finished the half-marathon in about the time that I expected including stopping for some pictures. Here’s what I’ve got planned for this upcoming week. Most of this week’s meals are brought to you by things that I can get in my Imperfect Foods box.

Breakfast

  • Smoothies (no plan for the smoothies because I need to use up some frozen fruit in the freezer)
  • PB, Banana, Waffle

Lunch

  • Leftovers

Dinner

  • Meatballs, Spaghetti Squash, Salad
  • Chicken Sausage, Roasted Veggies, Fruit
  • Tamales, Refried Black Beans, Salad
  • Blackened Tilapia Burrito Bowls

**All dinners are from what I could get in my Imperfect Foods box.


Meal Plan – Week of August 16

No new recipes this week. I’m sticking to some tried and true meals that are quick, easy, and yummy!

BREAKFASTS

LUNCHES

  • Egg-in-a-hole Sandwiches, Fruit

You can find the inspiration for these sandwiches here.

  • Avocado Toast, Fruit

I’m going to use the egg-in-a-hole sandwich inspiration and make avocado toast with some tomatoes from my little garden.

DINNERS

  • Juicy Italian Meatballs, Zoodles, Salad

I made these last week and they were so good that I’m making them again this week and I’m perfecting my version of the original recipe (which you can fine here).

  • Tacos

Nothing fancy – just ordinary tacos with taco seasoning, hard taco shells, and ALL the toppings!

  • Pistachio Crusted Tilapia, Salad

I’m working on an air-fryer version of this recipe. You can find the original here.

  • Air Fried Pork Chops, Roasted Veggies

This is a tried and true meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes! You can find the recipe for the pork chops here and the base recipe that I used for the veggies here.

Blueberry Protein Smoothie

This smoothie has been called the Wakey Monkey Smoothie in my recent meals. That’s its original name because it’s from a little café in Saluda, North Carolina called Wakey Monkey Café. This is my copycat version of the smoothie because I loved it so much, I had to recreate it. My version is a little bit different than the original version but it’s still an amazing smoothie that has been on repeat in my meal plans.
