I have been loving the everything bagel pretzels as a snack even though I shouldn’t be eating them.So I love petite, sweet peppers, and I have decided to use those instead as my chips.
I blended the following with a fork:
3/4 a brick of cream cheese, 1 can of chicken (drained), 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire, and 4 tablespoons of everything bagel seasoning mix.
This is creamy and savory…with the sweetness of the peppers…I am so excited to have this for lunch.
Uncooked, peeled and deveined Shrimp
2 – garlic herb laughing cow wedges (you can use any flavor you like)
Heat a pan with a small amount of olive oil. Add the shrimp and a bit of salt and pepper. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.Open two of the cheese wedges, and add into the pan with the shrimp.You can add more cheese if you like, but I didn’t want it coated more.You can place this on a bed of spinach or arugula like I did or on cauliflower rice. My plate. I made enough shrimp for several dinners or lunches. You can make this as saucey as you want or gummy like mine is. The flavored cheese adds a ton of flavor to the shrimp. I really liked this. Super quick to make, and can be done in a wide variety of flavors with the cheese assortments with Laughing Cow.
Since I made sauce for the zucchini lasagna, and I had some extra (score), I decided to go ahead and make some meals for either dinner or lunches for the week.
David is part of a local community theater group, and will be in rehearsals all week. So I will be on my own for dinner.
I had a sweet potato, sliced, chopped. Add a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until soft and tender.I also had spiralized some zucchini – made some noodles.Three bowls with some zucchini, sweet potatoes, and…Added the meat sauce, and then parmesan cheese of course! Four meals…well, one is zucchini noodles with some olive oil, salt and pepper – with shrimp that I had sauteed as I had ran out of meat sauce.This week was so much better for meal planning and prepping. I felt so much better about dinners, and lunches and my overall health.
How was your week? Did you plan/meal prep?
I needed to make some snacks that would incorporate my healthy changes.
Prepping for the week so that I plan to succeed. These are simple and a tasty snack on their own or on top of salads.
One can of chickpeas, drain and rinse until bubbles are gone. Dry on paper towels.
Put onto a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil, and sprinkle cumin, cayenne pepper and paprika over, and roll to make sure they are evenly coated.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until crispy.
Sprinkle with coarse salt. Store in an air tight container. These will spoil quickly. I store mine in the refrigerator.
I planned and prepped for the week for lunches and snacks. Will post recipes for chickpeas, cheese crisps and salad dressing throughout this week.
Plan your work, work your plan. Right?
So rotisserie chicken, spinach, cheese crisps, chickpeas, antioxidant dressing—and protein balls. We can do this!!
I found this on challenge, and have decided to participate. You can sign up at sweetpeasandsaffron.com, or just to find out more information. Basically, Denise is going to show me how to prep 4 days of lunches during a live video on Sundays, and we can modify it to our dietary needs all you have to do is sign up as it is free.
Trying to be better in planning and prepping. I will be posting here on my progress. How are your goals going for 2018? Progress?
