Weekly Meals

Week of 9/25 – 9/29

I’m back! The last two weeks have been crazy so I finally have time to write out my weekly meal plan! I hope you enjoy some of the recipes for next week!

Turkey or Chicken Parmesan Burgers | MyRecipes.com  Monday: Chicken Parmesan Burgers

An oldie but goodie! In addition to the melted mozzarella cheese, I also made parmesan crisps for each burger by a baking a lump of shredded parmesan cheese on parchment paper at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes. It added a little texture and crunch to the burger! I encourage using whole wheat buns! Complete meal with serving of non-starchy vegetables. Serving size: 1 burger with 4-5 ounces of chicken

   Tuesday: Southwestern-Style Shrimp Taco Salad

I posted this recipe a couple of weeks back but never got to prepare it because our plans changed that night so here it is on the menu again! Chicken could be used instead of shrimp and spring mix for romaine lettuce (dark leafy greens have more nutrients!) The recipe makes six servings so I plan to cut it in half and take the third serving for lunch later in the week.

   Wednesday: Sheet Pan Jambalaya 

I love one pan meals and am excited to try this new recipe I found in the latest edition of Cooking Light. The only change I’m making is cooking my own rice in a pot instead of using pre-cooked rice. Either works fine! Look out for high sodium contents in some packaged rice mix though. Serving size: 1-1 1/2 cups of jambalaya mixture

   Thursday: Greek-Style Pork Chops

We do not eat pork often but this seems to be one of my go to recipes when we do. I love the cool, Greek yogurt “tzatziki” sauce and homemade pita chips from pita bread! Serving size: 4 ounces pork with 1 cup tomato cucumber salad

   Friday: Pan-Seared Tuna Tacos with Avocado & Mango Salsa

If you follow this blog, you know I love ahi tuna and finding new recipes for it! I plan to char the corn tortillas as well for added flavor (as shown in recipe’s picture)! One substitute for this is Greek yogurt for sour cream. Serving size: 2 tacos
