Happy Saturday ! How was your week ? I didn’t have any travel for work. It was good to be home rather than on the road for almost 5 weeks.
One of the reasons I was so happy to be home, besides seeing my husband and children and sleeping in my own bed, was eating home made food. Not only can eating out wreak havoc on my digestive system but I was craving fruits and veggies. I overloaded on onions, peppers, butternut squash, broccoli… and red quinoa.
Here are just a few of my meals this week :
A big batch of protein pancakes made with coconut flour. I make a big batch, freeze them, and just warm up 2 each morning. Add almost butter and some banana, it holds me over until lunch.
I cut up a ton of peppers on the weekend, ready to roast any evening. I don’t mind cooking during the week but prep can be too much, so I do most of it weekends.
Pork chop with roasted peppers, onions and lentils :
Stir fry chicken with peppers, onions, home made guac, basmati rice and lots of Mexican spices :
Roasted butternut squash, broccoli and red quinoa :
Scrambled eggs with roasted tomato and green beans :
Not too many spring foods yet at the farmer’s market. The weather hasn’t been great and things are slow to come. Hoping to see more this weekend, but in the mean time I keep loading up on peppers and onions.
And…. I did go out to dinner with my husband. It had been a very long time since we had had a date night. I didn’t take pictures of all the food, just our drinks and dessert, profiteroles that were so good. Usually we split dessert but both of us wanted dessert yesterday. It was worth it !
Do you prep your food on the weekend ? Have you tried red quinoa ?
