Spring break is officially over tomorrow! I have the happysads about this. I've had a lot of fun with Grady (and I haven't missed the morning rush or packing stupid lunches) but he's ready to go back to his friends and I am exhausted. Who knew having two kids would be so tiring? Y'all with three kids are rolling your eyes so hard at me right now, I can feel it.
I've been focusing on upping my protein intake for what feels like forever (probably a couple months? I don't know. My baby doesn't sleep. Time has lost all meaning.). I'm finally starting to feel results. My pants are a little looser, but more importantly, I crave sugary, simple carbs less intensely. I still have a sweet tooth but it's more manageable. I'm motivated to stay on this path is what I'm saying.
Monday: Roasted cauliflower "wings" (eye roll) and crispy tofu served with a giant veggie plate and homemade ranch dip.
Tuesday: Meatballs in tomato sauce served with steamed broccoli and carrots.
Wednesday: Chicken coconut milk soup served with garlicky green beans and roasted sweet potatoes.
Thursday: I'm going to make double the shredded chicken I need for Wednesday's soup and then I'll use it for tacos on Thursday with leftover roasted sweet potatoes and homemade guacamole.
Friday: Taco salads using Thursday's leftovers.
What's on your menu this week?
