Did Someone say Meal Plan??

on March 12, 2013

Morning my friends!!   And how was your Monday to you??   Mine was kind and gentle.  Winking smile    I have some great news to share!!   I made two recipes last night for my meals this week!!   Meal planning is one of the  hardest things for me.  Not because I don’t like to cook, but cooking for one can be harder than it seems.  Good thing I like to eat the same thing because these two recipes are super delicious!  And very easy! 

 

I found them both at Nikki’s blog Life After Swimming

Quinoa Turkey Burgers:

 

  • 1 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1 pound of turkey meat
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of bread crumbs
  • Garlic seasoning
  • 1 large handful of spinach blended in a food processor (I think I will add more the next time I make these)

 

Nikki’s recipe called for red bell pepper, but I didn’t have any so I used spinach instead.  Smile

 

 

I also made this recipe from Nikki’s blog…

I also put spinach in this recipe too!  Here’s how I put it all together:

 

  • 2 cups of brown rice
  • 1/2 cup of plain low fat greek yogurt (I used the entire small container)
  • 1/3 cup of egg whites
  • 1 1/2 chicken breast
  • chopped up broccoli
  • 1 –1/2 cup of shredded cheese (WW kind)
  • and finally some spinach!

 

 

I’ll have to admit, meal planning isn’t something that I just gravitate too, but I really really like cooking ahead.  Kevin  likes doing this and I know that it’s something that we are going to continue once we are together.  Something I am really excited about.  Smile

Today is my half day and I am kind of excited about it.  The weather is supposed to be great, so I am thinking an outside run is in order.  I am also going to do this lower body workout from Danica:
