Returning from two weeks of vacation in Europe has definitely left me with the post-vacation blues. I had so much fun exploring cities, walking all day every day, and eating alllll of the good food and gluten free treats! I'm putting together a post on our favorite places, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here's what I prepped for this week, including all the veggies that I've been missing while we were away. I kept things simple since I know it will be a busy week at work getting all caught up!
Breakfast: Rootz Protein Shake // 2 scoops of Rootz protein powder (use code "wholedailylife" for 10% off), homemade almond milk, Foursigmatic Chaga (I love this stuff for an antioxidant punch!), and steamed and then frozen carrots, cauliflower, and zucchini. For flavor variations, I add cold brew coffee, cinnamon, maca, etc.
Lunch: Chicken Salad + Butter Lettuce + Zesty Nacho Kale Chips // The chicken salad is just chicken tenders cooked in a pan and then shredded, mixed with some Primal Kitchen mayo, a dab of mustard, balsamic, and a handful of walnuts. The Kale Chip recipe is by Leanne Vogel of Healthful Pursuit: roughly 1 cup hemp hearts, 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, 1 bell pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp ACV, 2 tsp garlic, and 2-4 tbsp water. Blend until smooth, massage into two heads of kale torn into pieces, and dehydrate until crispy.
Dinner: Green Flatbread + Cucumber/Radish + Apple + Perfect Bar // You can find my green flatbread recipe here; I modified it to fit what I had on hand this week. I also added some Bone Broth Protein Powder as well as some Almond Pro almond flour and Guiltless Superfoods Seven Seed flour ("wholedailylife" for 5% off). I also have a handful of Perfect Bars floating around in my fridge, so I'm incorporating them into my meal plan this week!
Snacks: Rx Bar + ZupaNoma Soup (not pictured) // Stay tuned for a giveaway of the new Rx bar flavors on my Instagram page soon! The Zupa soups are something that I love to keep on hand as an easy, whole food source of veggies. Use code "wholedailylife" for 20% off of your order!
Have a great week!
