I have started writing a meal plan for the week. I have read about it in an article on Clean Eating and I was really surprised that I have not thought about that earlier. On the one hand, I love trying new dishes and I love to search for hours after an Oh my God, I NEED to try this-recipe. On the other hand, a meal plan ensures that you will no longer find yourself with an empty stomach before your empty refrigerator and at the end ‘quickly’ eat a Nutella bread.
A meal plan also helps you to better organize your food and to throw away less. I now dare to buy more unusual ingredients because I then look up other recipes for which I can re-use these ingredients again. Before, I hesitated to buy something ‘exotic’ as I was afraid I would only use it once and at the end would have to throw it away. A meal plan helps me to schedule my meals according to my workout plan. Yet, all in all, the best thing about a meal plan, is to look forward to all this delicious food.
Since not everyone likes to spend hours researching for recipes, I have put together my top 3 recipes of last week. I promise you, all three are tested and have been found to be Oh my God. Enjoy.
Overnight oats with chia seeds and mixed berries. Oatmeal for breakfast is still my all time favorite. Here is another tasty variation. Mmm …
Easy salmon salad with greek yogurt dill dressing by Fitfoodiefinds. When I ate this salad, I wondered how someone actually comes up with the idea to add radishes, apple, and blue cheese to a salad. Anyway, this salad is not only healthy but also super delicious.
Pesto squash noodles and spaghetti with burst cherry tomatoes by Cookie+Kate. This dish is so delicious that words can not describe it. PS. Who thinks that squash noodles are too much work, can simply use whole wheat pasta. Those who prefer low carb may skip the pasta and use only squash.
What are your favorite recipes of the week? What do you think of my proposals?
