I thought it might be helpful to those of you that don`t know where to start with meal planning for me to show you my weekly menu of evening meals. I sometimes mix them up a bit... add a little shredded chicken here and there to salads or a few prawns, but you'll get the general idea. You might see something that wets your appetite. I`ll put the links to the recipes beneath the pictures.
Love and health,
Beetroot and avocado salad I`ll be omitting the feta in our house as we don`t eat dairy. I might try and source a non-dairy stle feta as I do happen to love the flavour of feta
Roasted vegetable salad I`ll be adding some organic chicken thighs to this meal and again, substituting the feta. I`m the only one in our house that loves aubergine so it`s always a challenge trying to disguise it! I usually end up getting complained at, but never mind.
Honey, Soy chicken I`ll be having this one with brown rice. We are really enjoying Ocados Italian brown rice at the moment.
Blackened Salmon Tacos with coriander sauce and cabbage slaw There`s always an oily fish meal in our weekly menu to help get our dietary Omega 3s. We do substitute with omega 3 supplements at home as it is so important, but it`s great to get it direct from food where you can as it is more of a bioavailable form.
I`m gluten free, but my family enjoy tacos. They will have these as in the picture. I will either sauce a gluten free option or just have them with some rice. The recipe calls for berbere - this is something you can put together yourself. It is a traditional Ethiopian spice blend made up of chillies, garlic, fenugreek and a handful of warm spices such as cinnamon or all spice.
Thai red curry noodle soup I made this last week and my family absolutely loved it. Definitely one of the most popular dishes I have done in a while. I will be adding king prawns to this dish to get some extra zinc from our diets, plus they are delicious! I use rice noodles to avoid gluten. The last two meals will be a treat night on Friday night, which means I don`t have to do much cooking and usually revolves around a Charlie Bighams curry.
On a Sunday, I always cook a roast dinner with Yorkshire puds, although sadly, I have not perfected gluten free ones. My family will enjoy them whilst I look longingly on! Only joking, it`s ok... I`m over it.
Anyway, let me know if you try any of the links I`ve shared and what you thought.
Here`s a little corner of the world where I discuss life, our bodies, natural remedies and nature.
