It’s Meal Planning Monday so you know what that means! Here is this week’s menu and the accompanying recipes. We went out of town this weekend so I didn’t make the pancakes from last week’s menu. They got pushed to this week! Enjoy!
Pancakes – We will be eating them with turkey bacon and eggs!
Chicken Burrito Bowl – This comes from MyFitnessPal.com. I do substitute one medium apple for the jicama. Please be aware this makes about 18 cups of the salad!!! We usually eat on it for nearly three days! I don’t make the dressing in the recipe… Kegan eats it with fat-free Ranch and I love it with sour cream on top!
Tacos (made with 93/7 lean ground beef) served with cilantro-lime rice (made with long-grain brown rice!).
Chili – This is a hard one to write up a recipe for. I add the amount of spices based on my sniffer…I tried to track it once so I could write up my recipe and it was not nearas good as when I wing it. The basics: two cans of mild chili beans, one can diced tomatoes with green chilies, one small can tomato sauce, then chili powder, cumin, garlic, paprika, pepper, and just a little cinnamon. I brown a pound of ground beef and add it to a crock pot with everything else. Cook on low for about 2-3 hours.
Pizza – No recipe here! Just store-bought pizza.
Breakfast Wraps – Low-calorie tortilla/wrap filled with eggs, turkey bacon, and cheese!
