I'm traveling this week so I'm just planning two specific meals for Monday and Tuesday.
Monday: I'm going to make a pot roast in the instant pot - likely following this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo.
Tuesday: we will do some sort of Taco night - still thinking it through but will likely be something super simple.
Reviews from new recipes last week:
- Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Vegetable & Black Bean Enchiladas from Yum Universe: THIS WAS AWESOME. Everyone ate it without a single complaint. I used enchilada sauce that I purchased at Whole Foods from a local company called Sweet Creek Organics (the recipe includes ingredients for making one but I was looking for at least one shortcut). I included all the same fillings as she did in the original recipe (including the portobello mushrooms, kale, etc) and made a variation on her ancho chipotle sauce using a store-bought chipotle salsa + cashews in the blender that I offered on the side. Aaron also wanted some meat so I included ground turkey in the ones I made for him and the kids and added cheese to theirs. I topped mine with a little bit of Daiya vegan cheese. Seriously this was so good and totally something I will make again.
- Vegan Cesar Salad from Oh She Glows: Another total winner. Anna and I had this one just by itself and Simon and Aaron (kids were with their Mom) had it with chicken. Super good - love the crunch from the roasted chickpeas and love the kale mixed in with the romaine.
- Pot Sticker Stir Fry from Nom Nom Paleo: Everyone was on board with this one too. I actually used turkey instead of pork because that was what I bought and it tasted just right. Isaac was skeptical of the mushrooms but ate it all (they were chopped super small). This would be a great lettuce wrap filling.
I also ended up making this Easy Instant Pot Sweet Potato & Beef Stew from Rally Pure on Friday for lunch so good. Thanks to Michelle for positing about that in the AE Wellness Facebook Group (if you have requested to join make sure to answer the questions in order to be added to the group).
Have a great week!
