Well hello! Happy Monday! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Weekly Meal Plan so I felt it was time. We just finished up our 8 weeks of E2M this weekend and the last few weeks were pretty specific food wise, so I decided to not share meal plans during that time. But, we’re back with another Weekly Meal Plan and we’re sticking with the eating regimen we have with E2M, even during this week’s “reset week.”
All of the recipes below are EASY and healthy – exactly what I’m looking for and I know most of you are too!
Monday: Egg Roll in a Bowl
Saute 1lb ground turkey in a little bit of olive oil over medium-high heat. Once browned, pour in a bag of coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage, carrots, etc) and mix to combine. Season with lots of garlic powder, ground ginger and Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning. Continue to saute for a few minutes as the coleslaw mix cooks down. Create a well in the middle of the pan and crack an egg into it. Scramble the egg with a fork and let it cook for a minute. Mix the egg into the rest of the mixture until its spread throughout. When finished, serve with a little hot sauce on top – SO good!
Tuesday: Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps
Cut chicken, peppers (any color) and zucchini into strips and toss in a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and a little cayenne pepper – similar to the taco seasoning.
Preheat the oven to 400 with a foil lined pan in the oven to heat it up as well. Add chicken and vegetables to the pan and cook about 20mins or until done. Remove from oven and squeeze some lime juice on top.
Add chicken to lettuce wraps and top with some avocado.
The boys have youth and basketball, so leftovers it is!
Thursday: Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Carrot Fries
Season lean ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and any other spices you’d like! Form them into patties and throw them on the grill or in the air fryer. Wash large portobello mushroom caps really well, pat dry and brush lightly with some olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Add them to the grill with the burgers, but watch them closely bc you want them grilled but firm and not mushy. Put the burger together by placing it on a mushroom cap, add an over easy egg, sliced red peppers, mashed avocado, mustard, lettuce and some sesame seeds on top
For the carrot fries, slice carrots into fries/thin sticks and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper and whatever other spices you’d like (cinnamon, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder). Cook in air fryer at 400 for about 25-30 minutes or until crispy. I’m using the rotating basket that comes with my air fryer so they cook evenly.
Friday: Steaks with Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower
Marinate the steaks (I do a lean cut of steak) with salt, pepper, Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute and a drizzle of olive oil. Throw em on the grill and cook until preferred doneness.
Toss broccoli and cauliflower florets in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add to a foiled lined sheet pan. Roast at 375 for about 20 minutes. When finished, top with a squeeze of lemon, more salt and pepper and some red pepper flakes.
FYI: You can also prep a lot of these meals so cooking dinner ends up being under 30 minutes – I know we all love that!
