Meal Plan: January 4th 2021

Okay, on to this week’s meal plan. Keep in mind, my lunches are often leftovers, as I tend the live by the motto, cook once, eat twice, especially while on a round of Whole30.

I usually do my grocery shopping on Sunday, so everything is stocked for the week. One of my staples is a plain rotisserie chicken. The options for it are endless, and they are perfect for quick, on the go lunches, just like the ones you find in this week’s meal plan.

Pro Tip: Shred, chop or dice just after purchasing, when it is still warm, it is a lot easier this way.

This week’s adventure food: cauliflower gnocchi 


Dinner: This Pan Seared Salmon recipe makes an almost weekly appearance on our menu. The boys LOVE it, and it comes together literally within minutes. I will serve with a brown basmati rice for the boys, and cauliflower rice for myself, and a side of green beans.

Dinner: Sticky Asian Chicken by Confessions of a Clean Foodie Hands down one of my favorite, and go-to sauces for stir fry. This recipe is incredibly easy and is really packed with flavor. I will serve with steamed broccoli cauliflower rice and brown rice for the boys (omit if Whole30).

As always, I will be cooking through the menu in my Instagram stories, and would love have you follow along. Be sure to tag me when you make a dish, I would love to see, and cheer you on!
