Meal Plan: June 19th

Happy Father’s Day! My dad and I have always shared a love for food, black coffee, good drinks and never ending baskets of tortilla chips! He was my first foodie friend besides being an all around great dad and I am so thankful for him.

I’m a day late getting this meal plan together after a busy couple of days! This week Pamela Salzman’s cookbook arrived in the mail: Kitchen Maters, so I’m dedicating this weeks meals to using her recipes both from her blog and the cookbook. Not only is this book beautiful to look at but the recipes are approachable and inspiring! Full of healthy cooking tips and meal planning tricks she has you covered from the meat eater to then plant based peeps.

Here is a link to her cookbook:

Kitchen Matters: More than 100 Recipes and Tips to Transform the Way You Cook and Eat–Wholesome, Nourishing, Unforgettable
MONDAY: Baked Asian Meatballs in Lettuce Cups

I love this recipe! Because I have ground beef in my freezer I’m going to use beef but the recipe is written using ground dark meat turkey, chicken would also work.

TACO TUESDAY: Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple Slaw

This recipe is from her cookbook and she also made a version with cauliflower instead of shrimp found on The Local Rose blog.

Here is also her Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos if that’s more up your alley:

WEDNESDAY: Quinoa Salad with Cherries, Almonds, Celery & Pecorino

This recipe sounds divine and perfect since cherries have been showing up at the farmers market. This one is from the cookbook but she has a couple of other quinoa salads on her blog. Here is a recipe for her Mediterranean Quinoa Salad and it’s delicious!

THURSDAY: Grilled Peach + Corn Salad with Spicy Cashew Dressing

Happy Planning! Happy Eating!
