On Deck

Here's what I prepped and have been eating this week:
Lunch prep: Stir-fry veggies in coconut oil and steamed jasmine rice - topped with Sweet Chili Sauce. Lunch the rest of the week will be the vegetable lentil soup (seen below, and made on Saturday).

Frozen mango, frozen banana, Vega Coconut Almond, and water:

 Dinner the last two nights has been the same: vegetable lentil soup, and corn muffin.

Tonight, it was a cabbage and kale salad with sweet onion dressing, sunflower seeds, and Boca Chik'n patty.
 The sunset tonight was also beautiful, even though it is ushering in a cold front.
I anticipate tonight's dinner again tomorrow, and perhaps a baked potato on Friday.  I have a feeling I'll be eating that soup well into next week. Ha ha! Guess I'll make more corn muffin (how terrible, I'm sure!).  I have a very busy weekend, but will be sure to snap photos and share a recap on Sunday.  We did it - we're half way through the week!

  1. Your smoothie looks so thick and creamy! Before I went gluten free I used to love salads topped with the spicy boca chik'n patty. How I miss those.Gorgeous sunset, I hope it doesn't get too cold!

    1. I love me some gluten, so I can't imagine your struggle! As long as your digestive system is happy, that's most important!

      It has been a little of both - chilly and super warm!!

  2. Oooh yes!! Stir fries are my favorite prep ahead meals. I made a huge udon noodle stir fry and I'll get a few meals out of it. It's so easy! Yours looks so good and really nice and colorful. Your smoothie looks like perfection. Nice and thick and creamy. The soup is hearty and yes, what a shame to have to make more corn muffins ;)

    What a gorgeous sunset picture! Those clouds are stunning! Sometimes a few clouds can make the sunset even more beautiful ;)

    I hope the rest of your week goes smoothly!

    1. The extra corn muffins didn't turn out well, but the soup is nearly finished!

      It's all about the clouds, in my mind! Really gorgeous!

      The week was tortuously long, but tis the season for teachers. Ha ha!

  3. This spring weather is so whacky i go from wanting smoothies to hot soup daily! Both look fantastic! Corn muffins are ideal with veggie soup. I can't deal with reheating rice so I'm totally impressed you have the veggies and rice for lunches.

    1. That kind of food is definitely spring weather appropriate! I used to feel the same way, but TJ's microwavable jasmine rice reheats really well!

  4. That is a thick Smoothie, I thought those were ice cubes in it.

    I never thought to put a Chicken Pattie on a Salad.

    You made it through the week! Now here comes another one!

    1. More like not enough liquid to make it smooth - ha ha! I did better the rest of the week.

      Avocado, tofu, chickenless strips...all good things to go on salads! And I like the cold/hot contrast.

  5. All your meals look so fresh and healthy right now. I was just thinking about a Fry's chickn burger for dinner with some salad, so clearly great minds think alike! Those corn muffins are so dinky and perfect.

    1. This is a busy time of year, so I have to get enough sleep and ear right - otherwise, I won't make it! Yes to a chickn burger on salad!!
