MEAL PLAN July 9th

Hey guys! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted a meal plan and I’m ready to get back in the swing of things. Between, wedding planning and summer travel I’ve been a little distracted. I also plan on starting a Whole30 because I’m getting married in 36 days and I want to feel my best going into August. I typically do one Whole30 a year and in January but after coming back from vacation I am ready for a reset. Everyone has different experiences and reasons for doing a Whole30 and mine are increased energy, mental clarity, great sleep and I notice better digestion overall. I tend to loose maybe five pounds so this isn’t about weight loss for myself but truly taking more time to be aware of what and how food and beverages effect my whole being. I’m also excited to focus on all the beautiful produce that is available this time of year vs the winter season and get grilling! This whole week is brought to you by the June/July Grilling Bon Appetit magazine because there are tons of compliant tasty looking recipes to choose from!

See you in the kitchen!

Meal Plan February 26th

We are two weeks away from Spring Forward and I am soooooo ready for the extra light! To cope with the next few weeks of Winter I’ve put together a hearty meal plan full of tasty recipes. (I mean does it get anymore tasty than pork tacos???) For those of you who are checking out my website for the first time you should know that I cook these recipes daily and post the demo to my Instagram Stories. I’ve found this is a great way to share what I’ve learned along the way and show you how easy it is for you to do it too. I love seeing your meals come to life, so don’t hesitate to tag me in your photos!

See you in the kitchen!

Meal Plan: July 10th

Hey guys! Here is the meal plan / inspiration since I know I’ll be out a couple nights I’m not certain how many of these will be made but I wanted to leave you guys with some good ideas. I’ve also included two pressure cooker recipes because A: Summer temps & B: Quick! I absolutely love my Instant Pot pressure cooker and highly recommend one over a slow cooker because it cuts cooking time down so much and makes a variety of things from bone broth to rice and beans.

MONDAY: Lemongrass Steak Banh Mi Bowls

This recipe has my name written all over it! As soon as I saw Alex post this one I knew it was going on the meal plan!

TACO TUESDAY: Instant Pot Carnitas

First off I can’t say enough about how much I love my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker but if you don’t have one a slow cooker will work too just plan ahead. Michelle’s recipes are solid gold so I can’t wait for this one!

I know poke is sooo trendy but it’s also sooo tasty! Feel free to use sushi rice if you prefer.
