Sunday: Hashbrowns, Spinach, and Tomato Pie with Cheese Grits
It’s a tradition in our house to have breakfast for dinner on Sunday nights. To make this recipe my own, I mix the potatoes (or hashbrowns) into the egg batter to save time! I also use less cheese to reduce the total calorie per serving.
This recipe is delicious! Make sure you make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Any type of white fish can be used in this recipe. I also add sweet potato, green pepper and corn to this recipe to make it my own and to add more vegetables. Lime juice in a bottle can be purchased to save time.
Tuesday: Swiss Burger with Tomato Salsa
With any recipe, do not feel like you have to use every ingredient listed. I made multiple adjustments to this one to make it my own. I replaced oil with cooking spray to save calories…specifically saved over 200 calories in this recipe! I also use no salt and instead add additional herbs for flavor. To make this recipe my own, I replaced ground beef with ground turkey. Any white cheese (mozzarella or white cheddar) can be used in place of Swiss.
Wednesday: Chicken Gyro
We love gyros in our house! I did an open face gyro this night splitting a Naan bread with my husband. I removed onion and added cucumber, tomato, and feta cheese. To simplify the tzatziki sauce, I made it using low-fat sour cream, lemon juice, dried parsley flakes, and black pepper.
Thursday: Spicy California Sushi Stack
This meal is fun to make! I left out vinegar, mayonnaise, and fresh chives in this one and added cucumber as one of the layers instead. Again, make each recipe your own and be creative! Add a vegetable like edamame on the side to complete the meal!
Friday: Chicken Tacos with Mexican Street Corn Salsa
For chicken tacos, be creative. I use soft corn tortillas, shredded chicken with lots of spices, tomato, spinach, cilantro, and avocado. Serving size one or two tacos with 1/2 cup of the star of this meal: Mexican street corn salsa.
Saturday: Artichoke Flatbread
To use up the rest of the Naan bread from earlier in the week, this vegetarian meal is a play on pizza! I even add a little pasta sauce to the Naan before adding all the other ingredients. To save calories again, I eliminate the olive oil from the recipe and minimize the amount of cheese by only dusting the top of the flatbread with cheese.
Grocery List (not including kitchen staples): ground turkey, chicken, tilapia, shrimp, feta cheese, parmesan cheese, spinach, tomatoes, cilantro, limes, avocado, cucumber, Naan bread, can/fresh corn, jar of artichokes, can of fire roasted tomatoes
