A Weeks Worth Of Meals

A Weeks Worth of Meals

I have gotten the request to post what we eat for dinner for a week. I actually have been filming a few nights what we have for dinner because I get this question a lot, but I haven’t totally figured out how to upload the videos and post them. So I will just write what we had the last seven days for now until I find a spare second to figure it out:

Tortilla soup with avocados and homemade tortilla strips—super easy you just cut corn tortillas in strips toss them with olive oil and sea salt, then lay them on a cookie tray and broil them, or put a little coconut oil on the cookie tray and put it in the oven and set it to broil, pull out the cookie tray when the coconut oil is melted and toss the tortilla strips in it, and then put them back in the oven to crisp up.
Polenta with artichoke tomato sauce (a quality jarred sauce, I just added tomatoes and carrots to it), and a salad with chickpeas, carrots, and grape tomatoes
Brown Rice Pasta with the leftover sauce, sauteed green beans with coconut oil and liquid bragg aminos, and a salad
Left over sweet corn soup, lentil soup, and home made bread with apple butter
Pineapple Curry with eggplant, red pepper, pineapple,potatoes, chickpeas, and rice
We ate at my parents, pretty much snack foods- cereal, yogurt, peaches, crackers and hummus, etc.
Breakfast for dinner at my inlaws- hash-browns, crepes, fruit, and little Swedish pancakes I can’t remember the name

Note: if this is helpful leave a comment below and I will do it more often. Also if you have any questions about the menu, recipes what not, leave a comment below and I can include that info as well.

*The corn soup I didn’t add a piece of bacon this time because I am on the month challenge not going to the grocery store so I just did evaporated milk instead of half and half and a drop of liquid smoke for that smokey flavor.

Tip: I made a big thing of slow cooked garbanzo beans and used them in a lot of the meals I made this week. I used them in the curry, the tortilla soup, hummus, in quesadillas and I put them on salad. I was going to roast them for a great protein snack but we ate them too fast.

    I just wanted to say thank you for the time you put into this site and your blog. My family and I have really enjoyed the recipes you have posted. I would love to have any other soup (lentil, tortilla, etc) recipes you and your family might enjoy. In fact any food your family likes I would love to have the recipes. I plan on posting soon on my own personal blog (www.thespeedfamily.blogspot.com) about some of the recipes we’ve tried from your blog. Thank you, thank you! I love hearing my husband say “ummm, this is good” after I’ve made one of your recipes! 🙂

    You are so welcome. I just thought of a question, do you make your own hummus? If so could I have your recipe, I would love to make my own I just need someone who has a good recipe. Also, any other recipes that include chickpeas would be great. Thanks again Desiree!

      Jessica, I do have a recipe that I like. I will post it right now. I like to use chickpeas in curries, soups, in quesadillas, salads, anything that you normally might put meat in chickpeas are a good substitute.
