I am back in Charlotte and it felt like a giant exhale to walk into my front door this afternoon. Being away, especially in times of grief/pain, definitely gives you a renewed appreciation for not only life but all the small things in life we have to be grateful for. I am really looking forward to being back into my regular routine this week.
One part of my regular routine that I’m most looking forward to getting back into the swing of is menu planning. I feel like it’s been several weeks since I’ve done it and after four days of eating on the go, I’m like, “give me all the sweet potatoes/cashew butter/salads/quinoa/salmon/etc.”
Here’s what’s on deck.
(Deconstructed Sushi Bowl)
Meal Plan Week of 12/11
Sunday: Seared salmon over sweet potato and chickpea salad with a spiced date vinaigrette
Monday: Slow cooker sweet potato chili with cornbread (I may do a salad on the side but only if I don’t eat one for lunch)
Tuesday: Kale pesto cavatelli with crispy brussels and sundried tomatoes and sliced pan-seared chicken breasts
Wednesday: Ahi tuna deconstructed sushi bowls
Thursday: Tofu bahn mi sandwiches with kimchi mayonnaise (I’ll probably do homemade sweet potato fries on the side)
Friday: Leftovers or Postmates. Maybe date night in but only if I feel like cooking. 😛
