Happy Sunday everyone! It’s been a pretty uneventful weekend. We were supposed to go to Austin for the Fit Foodie thing but a lot of things got in the away so we had to cancel. That was a bummer because I wanted to meet Allison Sweeney. Instead, we continued on with our normal workouts.
Willie is starting to get into marathon training so it’s kind of nice that we can run together. I was doing a recovery run of 6 miles and he did 8 miles. He was all smiles when he was done.
It’s Sunday so you know what that means! SUNDAY SETUP! Since I was so thrown off last week, this morning I woke up early while everyone else was sleeping and did my meal plan and made the grocery list. It was fantastic! I felt very organized! Didn’t have my usual templates because I’m out of printer ink at home. Must get that fixed soon.
What’s on the menu this week?
I successfully made spring rolls filled with ground chicken and some veggies. I will post the recipe this week for you to enjoy. I made enough rolls to for four days. I made turkey burgers for Friday lunch and it probably a dinner or two this week.
Willie made vinegar chicken for dinner with roasted mushrooms and kale for dinner. Wondering why Willie only makes chicken? Because I don’t eat beef and I’m not a huge fan of pork. Plus, a whole chicken is $6 versus just buying the breasts for $10. Just take the skin off people.
I was less than thrilled with my snacks this past week so I wanted to make sure I was prepped. I roasted some chickpeas and portioned them out. I also made the chickpea salad from the beginning of summer. It’s a great protein punch which you need in a snack. Remember a snack is not a FULL meal. I will have some hummus and veggies for snacks. I also made some protein balls with almonds for pre workout snacks!
And of course there are the usual suspects: egg white muffins and overnight oats for breakfast. I also just baked some sweet potatoes because they are always great for a side dish. That’s the one thing we will have every week!
What are you having this week? Did you meal prep?
