Steven and I were so consumed by this curve ball that when Friday rolled around I wasn't prepared. Fridays are my grocery shopping day. It also happened to be pay day. AHHHHH! I had to quickly throw together a menu (I hadn't even looked at the competitor ads yet), restock all of our cash envelopes for the remainder of the month, and get myself to the store. I generally start this whole process on Tuesday so getting it together in a few short hours during nap was challenging.
And how does this affect me? I'm sure you're wondering. It boils down to this...
My menu is full of repeats. I really try hard not to repeat meals within a month, but since the detox takes planning, I'm repeating recipes. Saving time was just a tad more important this week.
Monday-Cilantro Lime Roasted Chicken, Green Beans, Toasted Brown Rice Bread
Tuesday-Hummus Crusted Chicken, Steamed Broccoli, Butternut Squash
Wednesday-Turkey Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries, Berry Salad
Thursday-Turkey Chili and Salad
Friday-Coconut Chicken, Stir Fry, Brown Rice
Saturday-Chicken Avocado Sandwiches, Chips/Homemade Salsa, Raw Bell Pepper Strips
Sunday-Chicken Parmigiana*, Salad, Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce with toasted brown rice bread (omit balsamic vinegar)
*I used the basic plan of this recipe and substituted. Here's the rundown...
Use almond flour instead of flour, stevia instead of sugar, and of course, no parmesan cheese. I still used the wine because the alcohol is reduced in the heat, and leaves behind an amazing flavor. Over and out.
Tomorrow I will post the recipes for Turkey Chili and Homemade Salsa.
