Weekly meal plan tips and tricks!

Avocado Toast with Hard-Boiled Eggs and Roasted Tomatoes

  • Make these balsamic roasted tomatoes first before making the toast
  • To make the perfect warm hard-boiled egg, You just boil a pot of water, put the egg in and boil it for 9 minutes.  After that time, drain the water, briefly run under cold water, peel and enjoy!

Mexican Turkey Burgers

  • To save on prep time, you can buy pre-made guacamole or pico de gallo for burger toppings.

Meal Prep Beef Burritos with Zucchini

  • This is a great recipe if you’re looking to sneak more vegetables into your (or your kid’s) diet
  • Make a batch of these and bring them to a new Mom to keep in the freezer.
  • When you’re shredding the zucchini, be sure to squeeze out the excess liquid so the burritos do not get soggy.

5 Ingredient Overnight Vanilla Oats

  • This is a great no-cook breakfast!  The oats simple absorb the liquid and that’s it!
  • Top with brown sugar and walnuts (you could maple syrup instead of brown sugar as a sweetener and pecans or almonds instead of walnuts).
  • Customize this grab and go breakfast for everyone in the house

Chicken Banh Mi Sandwiches

  • Before I make this sandwich, I like to make a large batch of my quick pickled Asian vegetables in these jars.
  • The make spicy mayonnaise by simply combining mayonnaise and something like a Sriracha sauce.

Anything Goes Big Batch Granola

  • Make a large batch and store in an airtight container for up to one month.  Or freeze it to extend shelf life even longer.
  • This recipe is super flexible and you can use any variety of toppings.  The post has some great ideas!
  • You will separate the wet and the dry ingredients before combining.
  • You don’t want too much liquid in this recipe, but you want just enough to make sure the granola sticks together and then forms clumps.
  • This recipe is so easy that you really can’t mess it up!  You can use syrup, honey, whatever oils you want, any toppings/mix-ins, just follow the ratios in the recipe.
  • Pack the granola up in a Weck jar (or other similar air tight large jar or sealable freezer safe bag), tie a ribbon on and give it as a gift!  You can even get silly and decorate the jar like a reindeer for the holidays (quick antlers, a red nose and some googley eyes).  Plus, the amazing Weck jar is part of the gift; I use mine all the time!
  • If you’re adding chocolate as one of your toppings, add it when there is only 5 minutes left in the oven otherwise the chocolate will burn (

Freezer Frittata with salsa and sausage

  • This is a gluten free (make-ahead) breakfast idea
  • To freeze the frittata, allow frittata to cool after being baked.  Slice into pieces and cover entire baking dish with aluminum foil, or divide pieces into individual containers.  Warm for 2 minutes to enjoy!

Spinach Salad dressing recipe

  • You can substitute nuts.  Try walnuts if you don’t have pecans.
  • If you don’t have feta, try goat cheese instead.
  • Mix and match apples and pears depending what you have on hand.
  • Use any greens t hat you would like!
