Week of January 14th - Meal Planning

Another week and another batch of meals.  I'm getting back with the meal planning after the crazy holidays and being out of town.  I'm also really working to be better with prep with the hubby back in town.  I did decide that I am going to modify how I meal prep.  I am going to do two meal preps a week instead of one big one.  The man and I get really bored with meals and just need a lot of variety.  So here is this week's meals we have planned so far:

Orzo and Chickpea Salad - one note - I made this sans mint since neither the man or I are super crazy about it.  it was still delicious.  I served it over a bed of romaine lettuce and green pepper. (vegetarian)

Crockpot Pinto Beans - Haven't tried this one yet but it did finish in the crockpot this morning...excited to have with rice and salad.  I love beans for protein, fiber, and all the other nutrients. They are SO filling and as I've mentioned before - I love love them on the vegetarian diet.  I may grab some wholly guacamole or DIY some to go with these and some corn a la one of the reset meals. (vegan)

Spinach and Bean Stir Fry - This one is from a cookbook I have at home.  Have not cooked it yet, details to come.  (vegan but the serving recommendation from the book is to have with boiled eggs so it's a vegetarian meal)

Salad - Basic tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, bell pepper, mushrooms...whatever we want thrown in a container.  I made a greek vinaigrette from the Ultimate Reset guidebook and we eat it with that.  This is a good lunch and I have some fruit with it.  How I get to my veggie servings, especially if I'm having beans and rice for dinner. (vegetarian or vegan)

I also bought a ton of fruit - strawberries, pineapple, banana, and oranges to have as snacks or as dessert.  Shakeology in the morning of course...it keeps me sane as I try to get out of travel mode.
