It's finally time for a new weekly meal plan. Sorry I've been MIA from blogging for a bit, but I'm back!
Check below what I have planned this week
Up on the menu for breakfast is a @Rrayyme inspired oatmeal creation. I cook 1/2 of quick oats on the stove top with about 1 cup of water, 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder, some cinnamon, and 1 tbsp of chai team mix & vanilla extract. Toppings will include some lite coconut milk, bananas, strawberries, and pomegranate seeds.
I bough a 2 lbs pack of chicken beast which had 3 breasts. My go to portion for chicken is about 5 oz. So I decided to slice each chicken breast in half (width wise) to make 6 ~5oz portions. I rinsed the chicken under water and patted with a paper towel. I dipped the chicken in lite coconut milk and then coated in unsweetened coconut flakes. I sprinkled with salt and placed on a baking rack for 25-30 min on 360 degrees. For the last few min I turned the broiler on to toast coconut. Serve plain or with 1-2 tbsp of Thai's Kitchen Sweet Chili sauce.
Ever since blogging my meals, I notice I REALLY like my mustard glazed salmon recipe! It's up on the menu another week in our house (because it's SO EASY & SO DELICIOUS). Again, coat salmon with about 1 tbsp Dijon mustard and 1tsp brown sugar mixture. Turn on broil (HIGH) for 11-12 min. Sweet potato fries are another favorite. I slice and toss in EVOO & salt and bake on 425 for 55 min. DELISH!
Dinner #2 is a new creation that came from a lack of planning honestly. I bought pork chops without looking up a recipe so I was left with finding things in my fridge and pantry to come up with a tasty dinner. Well I found of reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup. So I will glaze the pork on my cast iron for a good sear with some salt pepper and EVOO then finish in the oven with the mushroom soup. I'll let you know how it turns out!
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT 1ST FULL WEEK OF 2016-
Stick to you goals and make sure to prep & plan so those goals are attainable!
