This Week’s Meals 2/14/16

Here is another week’s worth of what we ate at the Finch house for lunches and dinner’s!

This was actually what we ate all last week but I never got around to writing it until now. I usually only post lunches and dinner’s because breakfast is typically the same every morning at our house. If you would like to see what we usually eat for breakfast you can check out my breakast edition post.

Make sure to read all the way to the end of this post though because I have included a delicious grain free waffle recipe with a chocolate coconut cream sauce you won’t want to miss!! I tried this out on Saturday as a special treat for us to switch it up and ..oh my word!!!

Monday

Lunch: Avocado Chicken Salad with a side of baby carrots

Dinner: Spaghetti and a side salad from Capizzi’s (local restaurant)

*Young Life club started back up last Monday and we are always provided a free meal by our committee. I usually always eat this even though it’s typically a not so healthy meal because they go out of their way to provide it for us. If this were an everynight thing then that would be a different story. Once a week I am ok with. Plus I don’t have to cook or clean dishes that night!*

Tuesday

Lunch: Leftover Avocdao Chicken Salad

Dinner: Grass-Fed Beef Burger Salad with Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Salad Incudes: Spinach, topped with grass-fed beef burger patties, tomato slices, sauteed onions, bell peppers and mushrooms and Stubb’s BBQ sauce

Wednesday

Lunch: Citrusy Shaved Zucchini and Sardine Salad

I know I know..sardines?!! Most of you probably can’t stand even the thought of eating these, but if you can learn to like them they are so good for you. They are an excellent non-dairy source of calcium as well as omega 3 fatty acids. I buy Wild Planet wild caught sardines from Kroger as they are one of the highest qualities. I used a vegetable spiralizer to make my zucchini into noodles for this recipe. It was so easy to put together for a quick lunch. I’m sure you could top it with any fish you like and it would still be good.

Dinner: Leftover Grass-Fed Burger Salad with Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday

Lunch: Citrusy Shaved Zucchini and Sardine Salad

Dinner: Zuppa Tuscana

I don’t have a picture or a link for this one..I’m sorry! I found this recipe off of the instagram account @whole30recipes and it is a delicious and easy hearty soup that’s great to make ahead to last you throughout the week for lunch or dinner. Here is how to make it..

Ingredients: 1-2 pound grass-fed ground beef, 1-2 tsp crushed red peppers, 1 large white onion, diced, 2 tsp. minced garlic, 32 oz. broth or 4 cups, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 3 large potatoes thinly sliced, 1/2 bunch of kale chopped

Directions: Saute the beef with red pepper flakes. In a large pot, saute the onion, and garlic until soft in some olive oil or butter. Add in broth and bring to a boil. Add in the potatoes and bring down to a simmer for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Add in the beef, kale and coconut milk and serve!

Friday

Lunch: Leftover Citrusy Shaved Zucchini and Sardine Salad

Dinner: Steak, Broccoli and Mashed Potatoes from Chilis ..plus I snacked on everyone elses appetizers

*We went out to eat for a friend’s birthday and had a great time! Sometimes fellowship with friends trumps good high quality clean food. Laughter and good quality friendships are just as important for your overall health. Don’t let that be an excuse to eat out every single meal though!! Balance people.*

Saturday

Breakfast: Grain Free Waffles with Chocolate Coconut Cream Sauce and Sauteed Bananas

For the sauteed bananas: just slice up your bananas and toss them in some coconut oil over medium heat in a skillet until they are nice and warm then serve on top of your waffles!

This was like eating dessert for breakfast!! I definitely wouldn’t recommend eating this everyday, but for a special treat on the weekened this was amazing and much healthier than refined white flour waffles topped with high fructose corn syrup. You could always top the waffles with any topping that you like. Fresh fruit and almond butter is another one of my favorites!
