Pulling into the final stretch. I am SO excited that I made it! Feeling great!
Highlights from last week…
Hard boiled eggs, pancakes, and oatmeal were consistent breakfast options. These pancakes are just awesome y’all. Make them with 2 super ripe mashed bananas, 4 eggs, 1tsp vanilla, 1/2tsp baking soda, a heaping tsp of cinnamon, splash of milk, and 1/4 cup of almond flour.
Scallops, pork tenderloin, beef tacos and the shrimp with zucchini noodles were ALL amazing dinners. I thought for sure the zucchini noodles were going to be gross since they looked like slop, but they were SO good!
The last highlight for the week was actually a rare treat! My sweet friend found a recipe for almond butter protein balls. I snacked on them all week!
Here is the menu for this week:
Monday: Chicken thighs stuffed with avocado and cheese, then wrapped in bacon, (inspired by this recipe) with roasted garlic butter asparagus.
Tuesday: Turkey and black bean burgers (using almond flour instead of breadcrumbs) with a garden salad. Dave will have his on a bun, and I’ll just fork mine. 🙂
Wednesday: Planning to give this zucchini lasagna a go. I will use a sugar free pasta sauce, and will add some ground beef.
Thursday: Leftover night. Either turkey burgers or lasagna.
Friday: Rib eye steaks with a mushroom butter sauce. Roasted red potatoes and steamed broccoli.
Saturday: Asparagus with prosciutto and egg. This might sound gross, but Dave and I LOVE this meal. We do not go to all of the trouble in the recipe. We simply steam the asparagus, frizzle the proscuitto and fry an egg to break over the asparagus. You have to try it.
Sunday: Since we did not get a chance to have these on a previous menu, we will try Fish tacos. I will have these in lettuce wraps instead of on a tortilla. Here is a pic of what they looked like the last time I made them. Cannot wait!!!
Eat well this week friends!
