Sunday- Mediterranean Roasted Red Pepper Pizza with Roasted Brussels Sprouts
We made this pizza using this homemade whole wheat pizza dough. I don’t have a picture because as I was putting it in the oven, I accidentally dropped the pizza stone and half the toppings fell onto the stove door. We were able to salvage most of the pizza, but the results didn’t exactly look great. Still tasted good though!
Monday- Baked Quinoa and Chicken Parmesan with Green Beans
I’ve been making this recipe for years now and still love it. The recipe makes a ton of food, so I baked half and froze the other half.
Tuesday- Crock Pot Apple Cider Pulled Chicken and Apple Slaw over a Baked Sweet Potato
I still had apple juice leftover from a recipe I made the week before, so I used the rest for this chicken. I liked it, but didn’t love it. I made sandwiches with the leftover chicken and slaw all week.
Wednesday- Beef and Barley Soup
There was some frozen beef and barley soup leftover from a few weeks ago, so since I was working late I brought it to heat up during my break. Cook once, eat twice!
Falafel is typically an unhealthy “healthy” food, meaning people think it’s a nutritious choice but it’s typically high in fat and calories. This falafel is baked instead of fried, making it a much better choice! I decided to make it a sort of “mezze” plate with a bunch of different veggies and dips!
Friday/Saturday- out in New York!
Healthy Eating is about balance, right? We were off in New York for the weekend celebrating our friends’ engagement and had my fair share of pizza, beers, and bagels (whole wheat though!).
