I came across a great collection of recipes to share again this week! I like sharing meal ideas this way, I think, instead of sharing our dinner plans for the week because for right now, I just can’t stick to meal planning too far in advance.
I definitely do my food shopping with dinner in mind, purchasing our staples so that I can make dinner but lately, I just feel like eating out a bit more, winging things a bit more, feeling a bit more free with the meal planning, you know?
We went for sushi randomly the other night. I love that my son enjoys sushi now with me! It’s no fun to be the only one eating sushi at the table, I much prefer to order a bunch of rolls to share.
It’s not that I am not cooking! I am busy whipping up my power bowls and I made my son a big skillet of Italian-spiced chicken cutlets with whole grain pasta this week. There were plenty of leftovers which were perfect to have ready in a pinch after his volleyball games.
I do try to eat lunch at home most days of the week but the other day, I was just STARVING when I was working from Panera so I got them to make me the power bowl that they used to sell when they had their secret menu. Remember the Panera secret menu? I had loved the power hummus bowl (without the chicken).
I ate this power hummus bowl (with added avocado because, again, I was STARVING and needed the fat to fill me) at 10:30 in the morning. My appetite knows no time. If I feel like lunch, I eat it.
So the recipes I came across this week all look so good!
Take a look, see if any of these recipes are of interest to you and stock up on your ingredients over the weekend. If anything, use the recipes as inspiration for creating your own meal ideas, that’s usually what I end up doing.
I love that none of these recipes are complicated nor do they contain ingredients that are foreign to what I normally would pick up at the grocery store.
Honey Dijon Skillet Chicken – My son will love this and it looks super easy.
Spinach, egg and avocado stuffed sweet potato – My favorite combo lately now inside a sweet potato!
Crispy Roasted Potato Wedges with Squash, Lentils & Goat Cheese – My kind of meal. Maybe with feta instead of goat cheese.
Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas with Kale Pesto – We love quesadillas, who doesn’t?
Chocolate Banana Quinoa Microwave Mug Cake – Must try this.
Carrot Oatmeal Greek Yogurt Muffins – I need to start baking with carrots.
Coconut Flour Carrot Raisins Muffins (Paleo & Nut Free) – Another reason to start baking with carrots!
Oatmeal Latte – She is a genius.recent eats & recipes of interest #sushi #recipes #fitfluential #recenteats #panera Click To Tweet
