Would you believe this prep only took me 1 hour to pull together? See this post for a few of my top strategies for increasing your efficiency in the kitchen!
I'm going to keep this blog short and sweet because it's a beautiful day outside and a walk is calling my name, but many of you messaged me saying that you were curious about the frittata, so I wanted to make sure I sent out the recipe!
Here's this week's meal plan:
Breakfast: Blueberry Basil Frittata // I know, call me crazy, but it works!! Think crepe, but much heartier! I wanted to work some veggies in here as well, so I layered some zucchini slices on the bottom of a large pyrex (about 3 medium ones, sliced 1/4" thick) and topped with some sautéed spinach (1 bag, 5 oz) before adding a couple handfuls of chopped basil and 1 bag of TJ's frozen wild organic blueberries (thawed and drained). I whipped up 12 eggs with about 1/2 cup of the new Vanilla Lemon nutpods creamer and 1 tsp salt and poured that over the top, then baked it at 350 for about 35 minutes until the eggs were cooked through! (TRACEY25 for 25% off nutpods!)
Lunch: No Cook // This week I added in some Epic Beef and Liver bites to mix it up along with one of my favorites, AYOBAYO Droewors sticks (10% off with wholedailylife). As usual, I like to use ZUPA NOMA soups as easy veggies (15% off with wholedailylife)! If I don't have any soups on hand, then I swap in sliced cucumbers and radishes. I added some carb from an apple and some extra healthy fat from a handful of Pili Nuts! If you've never had a pili nut, it tastes like the softest most buttery macadamia nut you can imagine. They are delicious!! I talk more about my template and why I include the things that I do on this post.
Dinner: Spaghetti Squash with Marinara and Sausage // I found Rao's Homemade Marinara sauce on sale recently for $5 per jar and scooped up a few. This stuff is the real deal, and you can tell by the taste. It's the best jarred pasta sauce I've had, and there are no preservatives, added sugars, or junk! All I did for this meal was steam two small spaghetti squash (cut open and de-seeded) in my for 7 minutes and then quick release, scoop out the squash from the peel and top with the marinara, and add some US Wellness Meats sugar-free pork sausage that I cooked on the stovetop while the squash was steaming!
As always, if I'm hungry in the evening I add another snack or mini meal, usually a smoothie, a bar, or some leftovers.
If you try the frittata I'd love to hear what you think!
Have a great week!
