Breakfasts this week: Made ahead in the rice cooker --cooked rolled oats with stevia, raisins, slivered almonds, ground flaxseeds, applesauce, and cinnamon. Made a big batch in the rice cooker last night and divided into 4 containers for breakfasts. Boiled eggs for my healthy protein.
Lunches: Either leftovers or sandwiches with sliced apples.
Monday: Made Ahead One Pot Meal -- Chicken baked with "Spanish" Rice -- made this with 5 ingredients: defrosted one bag of precooked brown rice I made last week... mixed it with frozen peas and leftover salsa. Poured half of it into a greased casserole dish. Placed 3 frozen chicken breasts on the rice mixture, and then placed the remaining rice & peas over the top. baked at 350 for about an hour. I prepared this last night to serve today.
Tuesday: Errands & GF Coffee break night, so we'll have sandwiches on the sourdough bread I made yesterday, along with apple slices and carrot sticks. We're adults.. really, we are... lol
Wednesday: Made Ahead One Pot Meal -- Ground Turkey & Quinoa with veggies casserole. Made this last night: Basically cooked 1 cup of dry red quinoa in the rice cooker. Once cooked, I placed it in the bottom of a greased casserole dish. Browned ground turkey and cooked it with onions, garlic, green pepper, and a frozen bag mix of different types of green beans & wax beans and carrots. Then added some drained & rinsed large lima beans. Poured this mixture on top of the cooked quinoa in the casserole dish. Made a quick "sauce" to pour over everything with unsalted chicken broth, thickened with arrowroot starch. Poured it over everything and covered the casserole dish. For dinner on Wednesday night all I have to do is pop the casserole in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Dinner Ready!
Thursday: Leftovers or Breakfast for Dinner -- Hubs' favorite GF Pancakes, Turkey Bacon, and Scrambled Eggs
Friday: Pizza night! We love to make simple pizzas on Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas. I like to top mine with homemade pizza sauce, onions, green peppers, turkey pepporoni, mushrooms, pineapple, and daiya cheese!
