A week for us and some simple recipes for the 8 month old.
Breakfast: I’m still skipping breakfast, but have yogurt in the fridge for the baby. Mixed with some fruit, it’s an easy breakfast.
Lunch: mexican cesar salads
Snacks: nuts, fruit
Dinner: We’re getting the Fresh Market meal deal this week for two nights, and had dinner taken care of Sunday at a friend’s. We’ll be doing some mexican stuffed peppers for meatless monday and chicken piccata the other nights, both with salad!
Baby: some simple muffins, homemade applesauce, and she’ll eat a few bites of the above listed meals
- Lemons (2)
- Avocado (1)
- Limes (2)
- Jalapeno (2)
- Peaches (3 for salads, more if you want them for snacks!)
- Banana (need 1 for baby muffins and a few others for snacks)
- Arugula or whatever salad greens you like
- Apples (2)
- Red bell peppers (2)
- Chicken breasts (4)
- Shredded mexican cheese
- Yogurt (I do plain, whole fat yogurt for the baby)
- Frozen spinach
- Black beans (1 can)
Sunday night: Dinner at a friend’s
Monday night: Meatless monday! We’re doing mexican stuffed bell peppers. I cook up some rice and add it along with some black beans and shredded cheese into the red bell peppers that have been scooped of their inner seeds. Sprinkle some more cheese on top and bake them at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Top with avocado and serve! I also did a simple feta and peach salad to go alongside it – arugula, peaches, feta, and a simple lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper dressing.
Tuesday night: Chicken piccata served with the same salad as monday night.
Wednesday night: more chicken piccata and salad.
Thursday night: BLTs from the Fresh Market Meal Deal
Friday night: Same as Thursday
Weekday salads: chopped romaine, sliced jalapeños, grilled chicken breasts, pepitas, and avocado all tossed with a little lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper!
For the baby: banana spinach muffins! Toss one banana, half a cup of frozen spinach, and one egg in the blender. Bake them in muffin tins at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. My baby LOVES them! The apple sauce is simply apples (steamed to soften) and some cinnamon in a food processor.
