My 30 day challenge is done and now it is time to get into more day-to-day content. Through the 30 day challenge I have discovered what exactly i want my blog to look like. Each month this blog will feature posts about my meal planning, healthy recipes and reviews of restaurants I love. Each month I want to talk about what is in season, what I am excited about cooking and what is new. So to start, Happy June! I am super excited for June as with it comes the start of summer. I don’t think I have ever been this excited for summer. This past winter felt so long and dark and this will be the first summer that I am settled down. In terms of cooking I am looking forward to all the fresh food summer has to offer. I am currently growing veggies in my first ever garden and right down the street from my house there is a fantastic market every Sunday. In season right now and on my mind is Strawberries, Blueberries, Cucumber, Zucchini, and Lettuce.
This week I decided to actually prep in detail for every meal. My usual meal prep/planning looks like me making lists for each meal of what we have on hand that needs to be prepared. This week I have two options already made for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is all planned out and shopped for. I don’t like meal prepping for dinner because I have the time to cook each night and it is a nice de-stresser for me at the end of the day. Below is what I am eating this week!
Egg Muffins: I found the recipe online. I scrambled eggs, seasoned them with paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Added bell peppers and baked in a muffin tin at 375 for 25 minutes.
Roasted Potatoes: I seasoned cubed potatoes with onions, paprika, chile powder, garlic, salt and pepper. I then baked the potatoes at 425 for 20-30 minutes.
Granola: Recipe coming soon on the blog!
Last night my boyfriend made the most amazing barbequed chicken and grilled veggies. There were four meals worth of leftovers!
Quinoa and Chicken Bowls: I put some chicken in the slow cooker with homemade taco seasoning. Made some fajita veggies and quinoa! I am looking forward to a great low carb lunch!
