Weekly Meal Plans

This Week’s Meal Plan

First: Thank you all SO much for your kind, supportive words about my recent move! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I really have the nicest readers/blends/friends. I loved hearing from so many of you who are local and loved checking out your blogs! It makes me feel like I already have friends here. 🙂 I hope to bump into you guys around town! Anyway, thanks again to all of you for cheering me on. <3

In the weeks leading up to the move and then for the week after, I ate out a LOT. A lot a lot a lot. Mostly because of convenience and trying to decrease stress while packing. And then because my kitchen was all packed up. And then because I had to eat ALL THE TEETER THAI before I moved. And then because damn, there are some good restaurants in Charlotte and I want to try them all.right.now. You know how that goes.

That’s led to a pretty unhealthy diet so I’m getting back on track this week. I did some serious grocery shopping and spent a lot of time in the kitchen this week. Here’s what I’m eating/have been eatnig this week! (You’ll notice a lot of Paleomg recipes – I love her stuff! So simple and so delicious. Plus she’s hilarious.)

S – Paleomg Chicken Enchilada Bake — this makes a lot and is awesome to pack for lunch. I’ve eaten it all week. It’s extra tasty if you top it with extra goat cheese before reheating.

M – Paleomg Almost 5 Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie – also awesome leftovers!

T – Arugula salad with roasted butternut squash, deli turkey, chopped dried figs, walnuts (I just threw together stuff from my fridge)

W – Warm Spinach Salad with Blackberries, Goat Cheese & Walnuts, topped with pan-seared salmon

Th – leftovers

F – play by ear

S – play by ear (maybe order from Three Amigos since they deliver to my neighborhood!)

I also made these Paleomg Sausage Egg Cups that I’ve been eating for breakfast everyday. I just pop them in the microwave for a minute.

And this Paleomg Pmpkin Coffee Cake is awesome (although I think next time I’d make it in a smaller pan or bake it for less time; mine was a little burned and dried out and I took it out 15 minutes early!). I made it, let it cool, sliced it, wrapped in foil and stuck it in my freezer and just pull out one slice at a time when I want some. If it’s out, I’d have no self control and it’d be gone in a day.

What have you made lately that you’ve loved? Leave links on the comments (especially if it’s on your blog – toot your own horn folks!).

    I love PaleOMG too! This is one of my faves, I typically make it into meatballs and I add carrots, blue cheese, and way more hot sauce. http://paleomg.com/buffalo-chicken-mini-meatloaf/

    Made this last night, SO good. http://theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/05/08/paleo-pad-thai/ This is another good one from the same website. http://theclothesmakethegirl.com/2014/03/10/bacon-jalapeno-burger-balls/ And I’m also obsessed with her baba ganoush! http://theclothesmakethegirl.com/2009/07/17/eat-your-vegetables-eggplant/

    And one more 🙂 http://busyboldblessed.blogspot.com/2015/01/guest-post-kristas-quick-and-easy-crab.html

    Since you love Thai, Deejai Thai is a MUST! It’s on Providence Road in the Myers Park/Eastover area. Best Thai I’ve had in Charlotte.

    I’m totally with you, I get this ugh feeling when I eat out too much. Buuuut, I LOVE Three Amigos!

    What spots did you hit up in Charlotte your first week here?

      I ordered Three Amigos last night – SO good. And I’ve eaten at the Peculiar Rabbit twice – their burger and fries are amazing. I was underwhelmed by Cabo Fish Taco, loved Smelly Cats Coffeehouse and have done some serious damage to my health and wallet with all the times I’ve visited Amelie’s. 😀

    Great job getting back on the healthy eating bandwagon! I’m the same way when I move, no more food is allowed in the house when I’m packing! This week I’ve been loving homemade sweet potato tots http://www.pancakewarriors.com/sweet-potato-tots/ and Dave’s been eating these quinoa crusted chicken tender like they are going out of style! http://www.pancakewarriors.com/quinoa-crusted-chicken-tenders/

    Oh my goodness anything. My favorite is probably the veggie red curry. Right down the street from my house so it has become a Sunday tradition.

    Yum, I’m definitely going to have to try Paleomg’s pizza spaghetti pie! Another great spaghetti squash recipe I make often is this one (with ground turkey instead of beef): http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-lasagnastuffed-spaghetti-squash-recipes-from-the-kitchn-208523. And, I’ve been making this honey apple brussels sprouts salad several times a week with chicken: http://www.pbandpinot.com/?p=1154.
