A Weekly Meal Diary

October 5, 2019

Hello everyone!

 

I am sharing something a bit different today - my meal plan and diary for a week. I am a creature of habit and I like to have a rhythm and simplicity to my meals, which is especially helpful during this busy season of my life (pregnant, toddler, kitchen remodel). Foods I am currently loving and are giving me life stay on repeat for a few weeks, and then I change everything up. Currently, I am loving loaded oatmeal bowls, coconut oil roasted sweet potatoes, salmon and sardines, and eggs in all forms, and hating chicken and meat (thanks pregnancy hormones)!

 

MY MEAL PLAN

 

Breakfast Options (always with a Matcha Oat Milk Latte):

  • Cinnamon-roasted butternut squash tahini oatmeal with chia seeds and protein powder

  • Blueberry tahini oatmeal with chia seeds, protein powder and shredded zucchini

  • Scrambled eggs with spinach, coconut oil roasted sweet potatoes and avocado

 

Lunch Options: 

  • Chickpea tomato stew over roasted spaghetti squash with avocado

  • Sardine salad with green onions, roasted broccoli and roasted sweet potatoes

 

Dinner Options

  • Salmon with sautéed shredded brussels sprouts and roasted butternut squash

  • Kale mushroom creamy French lentils with avocado

 

Snack Options

  • Kalejunkie's Banana Date Drop cookies

  • Golden Milk latte with collagen powder

  • Hardboiled eggs with pink salt

  • Sunflower butter sourdough toast

 

 

These options played out like this:

 

Monday

 

Breakfast - Two scrambled eggs in ghee with a handful of spinach and roasted white sweet potatoes + matcha oat milk latte

 

Lunch - Roasted salmon with roasted white sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli + a banana date drop cookie

Lunch - Salmon salad (mixed with a little mayo and herbs) with roasted white sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli

 

Afternoon snack - Hot cacao with oat milk and collagen protein powder + banana drop cookie

 

Dinner - Chickpea tomato stew over spaghetti squash with 1/2 avocado

 

Wednesday

 

Breakfast - Banana tahini oatmeal + matcha oat milk latte

 

Lunch - Spinach salad with roasted white sweet potatoes, avocado and 2 hardboiled eggs

 

Afternoon snack - Hot cacao with oat milk and collagen protein powder + banana drop cookie

 

Dinner - Chickpea tomato stew over spaghetti squash with 1/2 avocado

 

Thursday

 

Breakfast - Blueberry Tahini Oatmeal

 

Lunch - Sardine salad with green onions and a slice of avocado toast

 

Afternoon snack - Golden Milk Latte + banana drop cookie

 

Dinner - Pasta (skipped the kale mushroom lentils since I had to skip the grocery store to meet the contractor about the kitchen remodel)

 

Friday

 

Breakfast - Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash Tahini Oatmeal

 

Lunch - 2 hardboiled eggs with leftover pasta

 

Afternoon snack - Golden Milk Latte with collagen protein powder + banana drop cookie

 

Dinner - Leftover sardine salad sandwich with mashed avocado and spinach 

 

And thats it! I have to add that keeping my meals super simple this week drastically cut down on my meal prep time and the grocery bill - WIN WIN.
