Today’s blog is a little update on all of the recipes I made last week and my progress. I can’t lie. I did a LOT of cheating last week. The lack of sugar in my meal plan left me craving pretty hard. And, who can say no to a pregnant woman? Especially a said pregnant woman herself.
Whole Wheat Spaghetti & Turkey Meatballs – I used lean ground turkey instead of beef, but otherwise followed this recipe… and they were SO delicious! Mmm. I used Muir Glen Organic Tomato and Roasted Garlic Sauce. The sauce wasn’t my favorite, but it was pretty good!
Blueberry Maple Refrigerator Oatmeal – I’m not going to lie, this looked a little funny and I was a little skeptical, but it was SO delicious. I really enjoyed it. I ended up only using 1/2 the milk the recipe called for and replaced the remaining half with Low Fat Kefir.
Meatball Pita Sandwich (Using leftover meatballs and sauce from Monday’s dinner, all in a wholewheat pita!) – We didn’t have a ton of leftover sauce, so I found this a little dry. I’m sure I could have done something to make it better (ie: more sauce, etc. Next time…)
Slow Cooker Chicken Korma, Brown Rice (We are headed to Mark’s Grandpa’s for dinner, so I’ll bring this easy, make-ahead meal) – Both Pop and Mark really enjoyed this. It had a bit of a kick to it, so beware, but we all enjoyed. Very easy to make and tasty.
Quinoa Edamame Salad – This was SO delicious. It tasted fresh and just delicious. And, the best part is that it was super simple to put together. This was one of my favorite meals of the week.
Slow Cooker Tofu & Chickpea Curry, Brown Rice – This was my favorite recipe. I used tofu, but I think it would be great with chicken! Mmm. I might even make this again this week. Delish!
Kale Chips (with very little salt) – I messed these up. They were delicious right out of the oven, but I stupidly put them in a tupperware overnight when they were a little warm still. Needless to say, they were soggy and chewy the next day. Yuck.
Make-Ahead Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie – This recipe was good, but I’m just not a smoothie kind of gal. I like to eat my breakfast. I probably won’t make this one again.
Tempeh, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich – My grocery store didn’t have tempeh, so we ate leftovers instead. I’ll make this eventually!
I think that’s about all I have for updates!
I did not sleep well last night and have been pretty tired lately. But other than that, just enjoying feeling my sweet baby move around. And, feeling pretty impatient… I just can’t wait to find out the sex!!
These all sound wonderful! Def gonna try the Quinoa Edamame Salad- always love new ways to eat Quinoa : ) I feel like the way to go is to make a meal plan ahead of time and stick to it- that’s what you did right?
Yep! Meal plan and grocery shopping at the beginning of the week and then just work off the menu all week! Let me know if you enjoy the quinoa! It’s seriously delicious.
