A Weekly Plan | WHERE IS JUNE?

Spring schedules are nuts already!  No better time than to have a plan.  We all have to put dinner on the table.  I find when I have a plan my family eats better, I am calm(er), and meal time is less of a chore.  I primarily search for recipes that are healthy, quick and easy, use basic (whole) ingredients, and are gluten and dairy free.

These are a few meals we have enjoyed recently. I hope you can find at least one meal to add to your menu next week.  Enjoy your weekend!

1// Spring Salad

I added chicken to make this a complete meal for dinner.  There weren’t blood oranges at the grocery store, so I used a cara cara orange instead.  This was delicious with fig & walnut vinaigrette.

2// Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers are one of my most favorite meals.  I searched and searched to find a recipe that didn’t use cheese to bind the ingredients.  This is it.  Super tasty and wonderful as leftovers as well.

3//Roast Pork Tenderloin & Apples w/ Mushroom Saute

A basic roasted pork tenderloin.  The star of this dinner is the apples with mushroom saute.  Oh. MY!  Give this one a try for sure.

4// Slow Cooker Quinoa, Chicken, Kale Soup

Perfect for rainy spring evenings that are busy right up until dinner.  Cook the soup all day and then add the kale right before dinner.  Simple ingredients, easy to make, and so good for you.

5// Turkey Lettuce Wrap Tacos

A twist on your basic taco.  The addition of green chilis, beans and salsa make it a complete meal.  Can be served in taco shells if you are wanting more of a crunch.  {Warning:  my kids turned their noses up with all the additions.  It appears they are taco purists.  Just meat, mom.}

6// Spaghetti Pizza Pie {Paleo}

The spaghetti in this pie is actually spaghetti squash.  No cheese used in this recipe.  Just squash, Italian sausage {I used chicken sausage}, pizza sauce, onions, dried basil and eggs.  6 ingredients and a fantastic meal.  It does take an hour to bake, plus the 25 minutes or so to roast the squash so give yourself plenty of time.  My husband thought this was great, which was a pleasant surprise.  More paleo recipes may be in our future.

All meals are gluten free and dairy free because that is how we roll!
