Weekly Meal Plan: Cutting down on carbs
I noticed recently that we were heavy on the carbs -- toast at breakfast (we eat Dave's Killer Bread, which is low calories and amazing) and sometimes pasta for dinner. So I wanted to cut back a bit this week to start easing back into my usual low carb days. also given that Wednesday was Yom Kippur bagels were absolutely on the horizon.
Sunday: Parmesan crusted tilapia with brocolli
fact: we don't usually use mayo so our mayo wasn't good. We just replaced that with some plain Greek yogurt. Still tasty.
Monday: lasagna stuffed portobello mushroomsMeatless Monday! Josh was really proud of how this one turned out. I mean it was just a veggierific meal with cheese baked to perfection.
Tuesday: slow cooker Greek-style green beans and chickenI've been obsessed with these green beans from a local Greek restaurant. So when I came across this recipe I was really excited. This was a perfect crockpot meal -- basically a dump and walk away.
Wednesday: Yom Kippu Break Fast
your standard menu -- tuna, white fish, deli, bagels
Thursday: Tangy Meatballs
I feel like meatballs are underrated sometimes. You don't need to eat them with pasta for it to be amazingly good. This sauce really made this dish and all I had to do was mix it in the crockpot and let it simmer. (Meatballs were made in advance)
Friday: steak and veggies
I had really been craving turnips, maybe it was all the Fall pictures my friends up north had been posting (because it certainly isn't Fall in Florida).
we had our cheat meal and that hamburger and French fries from BurgerFi was worth it.
