Meal Planning {May 25-31}

Meal Planning {May 31} | This Runner's Recipes

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I’m linking up with Mommy Run Fast to share my meal planning with you from the past week (May 25-31). 

Breakfasts: 

The usual: oatmeal with fruit and chia seeds on the weekdays, oatmeal pancakes on the weekends. Plus plenty of coffee and Nuun! 

Lunches:

For Ryan, we cook up chicken and bake a fresh loaf of bread on Sunday night (or Monday, since this was a holiday weekend) so he can pack salads or sandwiches for work.

For me, I go the sweet potato route most days. I usually eat meatless for lunch and eggs or beans are my current choice of protein. This week included the roasted root vegetable salad that I shared on Friday, which was my favorite lunch all week.

Dinners:

Monday:
Fresh whole trout seasoned with herbs de provenance and green onions and baked, avocado toast on fresh homemade whole wheat bread, and carrots and celery on the side.
Ryan and I are still figuring out how to debone a fish, so please share any tips you have!
Confession: Ryan chased Charlie around with the fish head while I laughed. Charlie was both frightened and fascinated by the fish.

Tuesday:
Whole roasted chicken, roasted broccoli, baked sweet potato fries, and homemade bread.

Wednesday: 
Spaghetti squash with red peppers, onion, carrots, leftover chicken, and olive oil. 

Thursday:
How Sweet Eat’s chicken and dumplings (whole wheat flour for the dumplings) and roasted broccoli. I used more leftover chicken from Tuesday’s dinner and for the chicken broth I used stock I had freshly boiled from the bones.

Friday: 
Homemade whole wheat pizza (tomato sauce, mozzarella, and red pepper) and side salads (romaine and creamy avocado dressing) with some delicious local beers.

Saturday:
Out: Ryan and I split pork tacos and a grass-fed burger after our three-hour hike up Tiger Mountain. If you’re ever in Issaquah, try the Issaquah Brewhouse: they have a huge (like three pages long) selection of Rogue Beers, locally-sourced food, and are dog-friendly (they even had a doggie menu!).

  1. Hi Laura, I cohost What’s for Dinner with Laura. Thanks for linking up 🙂

    Loaded sweet potatoes are one of my all time favorite foods. yum! Have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. A doggie menu – I love it! My lunches are nearly identical to yours most days, except I usually use chicken instead of beans (but that’s a good idea). That’s awesome that you make your own bread every week….I would love to get into doing that.

    1. We’re lunch twins 🙂 The recipe I use for bread is surprisingly simple – other than kneading (and I use a stand mixer), it’s mostly hands-off and only takes a few hours total.
