Tuesday: 2 miles on TM, BodyPump
Since I have my own kitchen now in our new house, I have been trying to plan healthy dinners for each night. After going to the grocery store a few times without thinking ahead, I end up going an extra time during the week to pick up extra food. I would love to be super organized and plan out all dinners on a spreadsheet to make sure I only buy what food we need and I don’t waste anything. I know this might not always be the case because I start both my final grad class and marathon training plan next week. This will be a busy spring semester!
Tonight, I made Mama Pea’s “Mmmm Sauce” for the first time. I know I write about her recipes all the time, but they always turn out good! The Mmmm sauce was a success (mix of chickpeas, almonds, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and more) and I put it on some gnocchi tonight. I added in Morning Star’s veggie sausage for extra protein and Colby liked the vegan meal.
Looks like a mess in the pan but it was good and very filling.
I’m planning a crockpot recipe for Wednesday and Thursday night. Colby and I made chicken meatballs tonight to keep in the fridge and put in the slow cooker in the morning with tomato sauce, onions and peppers for sandwiches. I always use Barefoot Contessa’s wedding soup recipe for meatballs. I never measure anything and only use 1 lb of either ground turkey or chicken and they always turn out great.
I have been cooking a bit more lately and have a giveaway planned for this week! I will post all about it tomorrow and you will be able to enter until Friday.
