So far, 23 days into January, I’ve kept up with a consistent workout and healthy meal plan, and I want to start documenting them on my blog to track the progress and potentially provide anyone with new ideas for cooking!
Right now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m only going to the grocery store every other weekend, so I’m meal planning for two weeks. Wasting food makes me sad, so what I try to do is look at recipes that have overlapping ingredients so I’m utilizing the most of my groceries – namely produce. It can be challenging, but it’s like a puzzle that you piece together!
This week, I cooked these dishes:
- Guacamole, salsa and paleo chips
- Spinach tofu stir fry
- Veggie spaghetti with homemade spinach pesto
- Salmon, avocado and rice
- Ribeye steak, broccoli and rice — my parents got me a new iron skillet for Christmas so I HAD to try it out on the steak!
- Almond milk chocolate chip pancakes with fresh strawberries and honey
Admittedly, I had more rice than I usually eat. For years, I tried to cook and genuinely enjoy cauliflower rice, but it never appeals to me, and I end up not eating my entire meal.
What are y’all cooking? What new recipes are you finding and trying out? Share them in the comments! I’m always on the lookout for new things to make 🙂
