So I am trying to eat fairly decent, no ordering out, cooking and using as many fresh ingredients that I can. Every Sunday (or whenever I have a minute) I try to make a meal plan for the week and get my grocery items together. But since I am also trying to get back into couponing since I haven't done much of it in a while, it can be challenging. You and I both know that most of the time, the items that have coupons are the very items that are not the best for us. They don't have coupons for veggies!!! Although Ibotta gives you money back for veggies sometimes. Ok, I am going in another direction here, lets get back to the recipe!!!
This week I decided that our menu will look something like this:
Veggie Packed Spaghetti
Steak Roll Ups with steamed veggies
Pierogis Chicken Soup & Sliders
Like I stated above my goal is to use fresh organic items, I know that I have to use "some" processed foods but I want to keep it to a minimum and I want to make sure even it is gluten free, whole wheat or and organic.
So Monday I decided to do Steak Roll Ups. I got the recipe of off Pinterest - yes of course! But the link to the actual recipe is Flank Steak Roll Up. It is over at Hunters Healthy Kitchen.
Even though I am a photography, my camera phone SUCKS - yes it is an iPhone but it still sucks and I am not perfect so trying to stage my cooking for great pictures isn't for me (just yet, maybe I will work up to it hahaha)... No I like to show the real thing, because I am just like you, my kitchen may not be the cleanest or my chopping method may not be the prettiest and I definitely do not have a clutter free home! So right now my pictures are real time and are not perfect!
Flank Steak Roll-Ups
This recipe was amazing, the steaks (even as thin as they were) were absolutely amazing!
Our Version of a Healthy Veggie Packed Spaghetti:
The inspiration for this was a recipe that I found online and I changed it to suit our family's needs.
I made this during my grandkids nap and it literally took me just a few minutes, it went into the fridge for later. The hardest part was the chopping of the veggies. You could cheat even more by buying pre-chopped veggies. Later in the evening, my son had asked me what was for dinner and it suddenly hit me that I had forgotten that this was a vegetarian type of meal and I knew that my family wouldn’t be fulfilled so… I grabbed some organic breaded chicken sandwich patties from the freezer and threw them into the oven at 350 for 15 minutes with some organic jarred spaghetti sauce topped with provolone cheese slices.
The spaghetti and chicken didn’t go together perfectly but it done the job and surprising EVERYONE loved the meal!!!
I hope you try these meal ideas. I always try to find super easy and healthy options!!! Feel free to post comments or your own recipes!
