I am ready to eat super clean and focus these next few weeks on our health, as Christmas is fast approaching! We had our cookie party (blog to come!) and it was a grand success. That said, I think everyone has a cookie/sugar hangover and this mama needs to up the fuits and veggies, lean proteins and push the water.
I also want to grab some more probiotics for the kiddos and some of this I do try to take a balanced approach, with mostly healthy food choices, but it isn’t easy. My body does best with per meal- 70% greens/veggies, 20% lean protein & 10% complex carbs. My *self control* has been a little, ok a lot off and my portions are out of whack. My husband however, can barely handle most fruits and veggies, so he needs a low fiber diet due to his Crohn’s. My daughter will eat most things, and I have a fairly pick 4 year old who has been known to dramatically gag at the table.
This week I’m trying to use up some freezer items while still keeping it fairly healthy. For things like the Cod, I plan on eating mine without the delish cracker crumbs and the shrimp scampi I will serve over cauli rice or zoodles! I plan filling up on lots of veggies this week!
Whole Chicken in a slow cooker (literally buy a whole organic chicken, sprinkle seasoning on top, add onion or garlic, cook on low for 6-8 hours until it falls apart!)
Pizza Night (Grab ready made crusts, I prefer cauliflower, and everyone makes their own pizza!)
Roasted Garlic Quinoa Mushroom (this will probably be just for me, but looks so yummy!)
What’s on your menu this week?
