This Week’s Meals + FREE handout for Tips on Meal Prepping

Ok, Harper is napping so let’s see if I can get this blog done and let you guys know what I ate this week!!

By the way, last week I shared with you guys what I have been doing for workouts post partum plus a new recipe I tried. Go grab that here if you missed that.

I finally have a little more of a routine now 8 weeks into this whole mom thing to where I am back to getting some time to meal prep for the week. I’ve made Monday my grocery day and Tuesday is typically my meal prep day. This is one of the best things I started doing that helps Luke and I eat healthy throughout the week. If you don’t take time to meal prep it will be one of the biggest contributors to you making poor eating choices throughout the week, because if you haven’t noticed, eating healthy almost always involves cooking your food. If it’s not prepared ahead of time, or at least prepped half way to where it cuts your cooking time, then most likely you will find yourself starving and grabbing whatever is most convenient or snacking way more than necessary because you don’t have the patience to wait another 30 minutes to cook your food.

I started posting what we eat throughout the week awhile back but obviously life got crazy and I haven’t posted in awhile. You can go check out all my other weekly meals here.

Because I love you guys so much I’ve put together a handout that walks you through exactly what I do each week when I am planning our meals. Just click the link below and it’s yours free!

Tips on Meal Prepping

The only way I get any meal prepping done lately is with the baby carrier. I may get some done while she is napping, but usually she will wake up before I am finished so then she just gets to join me

Is that not the cutest little bald head you ever did see? I promise she can breathe and isn’t smashed against my chest. She loves it in this thing and momma can get things done!

Alright, so what did we eat this week?

So like I said earlier, Monday’s are usually my grocery day so the beginning of the week starts out with leftovers usually or sometimes just eating out if we ran out of food.

Monday

Lunch: Apple Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad from Braum’s

I had a friend come over for lunch that day and I didn’t have enough food to make both of us something so she brought us over a salad. Obviously not the highest quality of food here, but ya know it’s actually a pretty decent salad if you are out and need something healthier and convenient. It’s not iceburge lettuce either it’s actually real green leaf lettuce so I think I actually got some good nutrients out of that.

Dinner: Leftover Paleo Spaghetti with a side salad

This is one of my go to recipes. So easy and makes for great leftovers! Our side salad was simple and consisted of spinach, chopped carrots and tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Tuesday

Lunch: Leftover Paleo Spaghetti with a side salad

Dinner: Steak, Asaparagus and french fries from Chili’s

It was Luke’s birthday so we ordered chili’s to go and had a nice family night in without having to cook or clean any dishes! I don’t eat 100% clean all the time and I won’t ever lie to you all about that. I make it a point to keep clean healthy food in the house and eat at home a majority of the time and not stress about the rest. That’s just what works for us! Oh, and we watched the Batchelor. Don’t let him fool you and tell you he doesn’t love watching it was much as I do!!!

Wednesday

Lunch: Homemade Taco Soup made by Luke’s Aunt

Luke’s grandparents came in so we went out and ate at his aunt’s house for lunch that day. Not sure how she made it but it tasted good!

Dinner: Quinoa Fried Rice

This is an old recipe I found and is very filling! You really can make it however you like as far as what vegetables you add to it. I actually added in a pound of cooked ground venison for some extra protein this time.

Thursday

Lunch: Baked wild caught salmon over quinoa topped with pico de gallo, side of sauteed zucchini and squash in olive oil

I baked enough salmon and cooked enough quinoa to last us a couple of lunches. To save time I also chopped all the zucchini/squash up ahead of time as well so I just had to throw it in the skillet when i was ready to eat and warm everything else back up. Easy and healthy!!

Dinner: Chicken Avocado Soup

This was really good! It was not an original recipe but you can grab the recipe by clicking on the link attached above!

If you want the healthiest chicken around with the best balance of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids you need to check out Slanker’s Grass Fed Meats! If you’ve never ordered from them before, make sure and let them know that Erin Finch referred you if you are ordering by phone and you can get $5 off your first order! If you order online, I would greatly appreciate you ordering through my link below as I do get a small commission for referrals! I buy mostly beef from them because it is more affordable but they sell a wide variety of products if you haven’t checked them out before! I’ve been ordering meat from them for over a year now and love all their products. They deliver locally now too for a small fee which is super convenient.

Order Slanker’s Grass Fed Meat Here!!

Feel free to ask me about their products before you buy if you’re unsure because I’ve tried a lot of their products!

Okay so onto Friday’s meals..

Friday

Lunch: leftover salmon, quinoa and zucchini/squash

Dinner: leftover chicken avocado soup

I like to keep it simple. Leftovers is the way to go to limit time in the kitchen when you don’t have a lot of it!

Let me know if you try any of my recipes and like them!!
