Meals for the Week 1/20

by admin on January 20, 2014

good morning!

before I share my meal plan for the week, I need to tell you about my Friday night

it consisted of breaking bad episodes (my roommates and I just started watching) and homemade banana soft serve!

thanks to my amazing Nanny, I got a 14 cup food processor for christmas which is now my favorite piece of kitchen equipment. In the food processor went a bunch of frozen nanners, a couple tablespoons of peanut butter, and a splash of milk. We each enjoyed a large bowl. YUM.

also from my good camera was my yogurt breakfast bowl that I enjoyed Saturday morning. Just plain greek yogurt mixed with pumpkin butter and topped with some dried fruit, crumbled cereal, half a banana, and melted peanut butter. The melted peanut butter is what really made it..naturally :)

I’ve been waiting to put this stuff to good use! Its sweet, but not too sweet, and full of delicious pomegranate flavor

for the dressing I whisked together 4 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp pomegranate vinegar, 1/2 tbsp honey, salt and pepper. I massaged the kale (about one big bunch) in the dressing and then added in 2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa, 1 cup crumbled goat cheese, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, and 1/2 cup dried cranberries. I wanted to add in fresh pomegranate seeds but my grocery store didn’t have any :( womp. It is still delicious though!

dinner last night was crockpot chicken curry: In the crock pot (my second favorite piece of kitchen equipment went) 3 sauteed leeks and 2 cloves of garlic cooked in 1 tbsp coconut oil, 3/4 pound chicken breasts, 2 chopped bell peppers, 2 cups chopped snappeas, 2 cans coconut milk (1 light, 1 regular), and 3 tbsp of red curry paste. Cooked on high for 5 hours and voila. Hit the spot.

Especially after watching the patriots lose..that game was pretty miserable to watch..ugh. Oh well..
