Tom and I are doing a bit of a “clean eating challenge” this week. We’ll eat really similar to how we did on the Whole30, although this time we will include beans, corn and peanuts, as well as a small amount of natural sweeteners. When eating this way, I find assigning meals to specific days challenging. I tend to lack energy the first bit when cutting out carbs and knowing that, I like to make things as simple as possible on myself to ensure we stay on track. I’ll just have lots of cooked meat, eggs and fruit and vegetables ready to go so we can throw together whatever we feel like on the fly. Here are some recipes I plan to make this week:
I’ve wanted to make this forever and I think having a big batch will be handy to throw on salads, wrap in lettuce leaves and mix with veggies for stir-fry.
Tom LOVES these. They make a really convenient breakfast on the go with lots of protein. The crispy ham edges are my favorite part. They also freeze well.
This is our favorite basic chili recipe and the leftovers are awesome. I’ll make this when our bacon chicken runs out.
I’ve wanted to try making my own peanut butter since we got our Ninja and store bought is typically loaded with junk so now is the time!
I make this almost every day. I like to add matcha powder for an extra energy boost and I also do half orange juice and half water now.
I love making my own dressings at home. It’s another good way to avoid extra chemicals and preservatives.
I make these potatoes often, but I’ll be eliminating the feta this time.
What are you eating this week?
