Why a super healthy meal plan? Well, last week we had no meal plan. We were both ill with a nasty winter vomiting thing and didn’t feel much like food. As soon as I started to feel more human I made vegetable stock and a big pot of veggie soup from that. I wanted maximum nutrition but could only eat something very light.
Our kitchen spoons are mostly plastic and seem to have all started breaking. I have invested in this set of stainless steel ones, since I am trying to avoid plastic wherever possible. It’s a shame the plastic ones can’t be recycled. Hopefully the stainless steel ones will last forever.
This week’s super healthy meal plan
Out for dinner at a friends so I don’t have much control over this. I will offer a fruit salad for dessert.
We have some haddock and salmon in the freezer so will make a parsley sauce and have broccoli, carrots and mashed potatoes with it.
I also plan a banana loaf with three bananas that are past their best. Don’t want to waste them.
Salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, grated carrot and avocado. We seem to have a lot of pre-prepared vegetarian items like rissoles and burgers in the freezer. I had a tidy up and found some lurking at the back. They will go with the salad, maybe with some boiled potatoes.
Tuna with penne and olives. There should be leftover salad to go with this. We eat this a lot as it is quick, healthy, cheap and easy to make.
Vegetable casserole made in the slow cooker with carrots, onions, celery, peas, parsnips and mushrooms. Everything in the fridge, basically. Mr S can have the same thing with a couple of chicken thighs in his. We will have this with rice.
Vegetable Lincolnshire sausages with mash, gravy and kale.
Our usual easy end of week dinner. Cheese omelette with a baked sweet potato and whatever vegetables are left in the fridge.
I am buying black grapes and oranges this week. We have loads of apples donated by a neighbour, so we can snack on fruit. Plain Greek yogurt with honey is another nice dessert option. I buy the lactose free version from Asda when I am passing. The packs of mixed nuts from Lidl are also good for healthy snacking.
That doesn’t mean I won’t eat chocolate or drink wine! But as I have had neither for a week, I won’t go crazy. Silver lining – I managed to lose 4 lb!
