MEAL PLAN: April 8th

Happy Friday friends! I’ve put together a new week of meals that I hope sparks some joy in the kitchen this week. A couple of these recipes I had bookmarked and can’t wait to eat: pozole verde & roasted salmon with salsa verde! It’s spring and verde or greens are popping up everywhere. From peas to asparagus, tender leafy green, fennel, and artichokes it’s time to indulge and enjoy what this season is all about.

MONDAY: Spicy Beef with Coconut Rice

I love a good Larb or aka the Thai meat salad. This one from Gabby looks so delicious. To make gluten free use Tamari or swap the sugar and soy for coconut aminos. You can also serve this with coconut cauliflower rice. When cooking the cauliflower rice use coconut oil and a couple tablespoons of coconut milk.

TUESDAY: Pozole Verde

I know, I know, this is not a taco but I’ve been wanting to make it ever since Alex posted it!

WEDNESDAY: Grilled Chicken Souvlaki Greek Salad

Grilled Chicken and Salad I’m all over this one. Also featuring asparagus now that spring is here.

THURSDAY: Roasted Salmon with Citrus Salsa Verde

Saw this recipe pop up last week and it was a no brainer. Serve with a roasted veggie and or side salad.

 

 

Meal Plan: June 26th

Can you believe this is the last week of June!? I hope your first month of summer has been off to a good start. I must admit I usually have a few ideas ahead of time of meals I want to make but this week I had to start searching for ideas. Between inspiring Instagram posts, Pinterest and Bon Appetit magazine I pulled together a week of meals I’m excited to make and I hope a few of these make it on your plate too!

MONDAY: Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups

I love Larb! Also known as Thai Lettuce Cups which includes ground meat and lots of herbs! Traditionally this is served with sticky rice but Teri has made a simple and whole30 version sans rice.

These Cuban inspired tacos sound delicious!

WEDNESDAY: Savory Peach + Cucumber Salad with Roast Chicken

I love a good roast chicken along side a fun summery salad. I had this salad this weekend at a BBQ and it was amazing! If you’ve never spatchcocked a chicken before it’s simple and cuts down on the cooking time.

FRIDAY: Grilled Pesto Shrimp + Veggies

Pesto season is in full swing! Grilled shrimp is super quick and delicious and I’ll be adding some other veggies to the grill like small potatoes, asparagus and maybe some sweet peppers.
