Let’s try something new, eh? I’ll try to post a weekly plan that includes my food for the week and the exercise I plan on doing. It’s a bit of motivation for blogging and exercise all in one!
I do make a menu for the week every Friday. It really helps keep my life organized. After making the menu, we go to our local Farmer’s Marked on Saturday morning, then head to the store to grab other non-vegetable items. And that’s it! I might have to stop by the store once to grab something I forgot, but we really only go to the store once a week. And it helps avoid the food ruts that a busy life + “we can do noodles again” can lead to.
So! Here we go. I’ll try to take pictures next time, but 7:30 on a Sunday night isn’t the best time for a photo shoot.
-Saturday: Roasted Butternut Alfredo, inspired by Post Punk Kitchen. This was really good, but took a bit of getting used to. If you like interesting dishes then I really suggest you try it!
-Sunday: Leftover Butternut Alfredo
-Monday: Breakfast Potatoes (for dinner!) – cut into small chunks, toss with olive oil, rosemary, and a bit of salt and pepper. BBQ on cast iron pan for ~45 minutes until nice and crispy, stirring every 10 minutes or so. This has been our favorite way to make potatoes lately! Serve with steamed broccoli.
- Tuesday: Asparagus and Mushroom Tacos, from Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats by Allyson Kramer. I highly recommend this book. She makes gluten-free fare exceptionally good and easy to make.
-Wednesday: Simple Risotto, with carrots, celery, and baby zucchini.
-Thursday: Leftover Risotto
-Friday: Stuffed Acorn Squash! Recipe to be decided…
-Stretch 15 minutes every other day
-Do planks daily
-Strength training twice
We’ll see how much of this I get done. The most important one for me right now is doing planks daily.. my back could really use it.
What are your food & exercise plans for this week?
Have a great week!
