In an effort to make it through the holidays without gaining 20 lbs, the focus this week will be healthy, low(er) calorie meals with optional carby add ons for Greg and Ben.
Also, I still have a lot of fruit left from last week's produce box, so I am going to do a vegetable box this week and add on a pound of brussels sprouts.
Celeriac (which I think is celery root)
Bunch of Carrots
Mixed Mini Bell Peppers
No soup this week, because I'm obsessed with quinoa. I think I'll make quinoa salads to take with me to work instead!
Tuesday: Crispy Black Bean Tacos (with chips and salsa).
Wednesday: Boca Burgers and roasted brussels sprouts.
Thursday: Cod and quinoa chard pilaf and probably more roasted brussels sprouts. (My fav right now).
Friday: Winter Root and Vegetable Soup (with garlic bread) - The plan will be to roast whatever I have left of the carrots, winter squash, sunchokes and celeriac on Thursday and then make the soup Friday when I get home from work. I'm not going to follow this recipe exactly (which makes me VERY nervous, BTW) but I'll throw it all together and hope for the best! We may end up eating a frozen pizza this night ;)
