Sometimes meal planning can be a little daunting, and, let’s face it, a bit boring. I get it. Instead I want to share with you a simple 4-step strategy to go into your week with. We’re going to make something to freeze, one that’s a breeze, something for flavour, and something to savour.
Something to freeze can be any freezer-friendly or make-ahead recipe. One that’s a breeze is a simple recipe that comes together in 30 minutes or less for an easy weeknight dinner.
Something for flavour is a sauce, dressing, dip, spread, or basically anything you can add to veggies, grains, or proteins to spruce them up a bit. And something to savour is a snack or treat that’s nice to have on hand.
Here’s what we’re doing this week…
SOMETHING TO FREEZE:
ONE THAT’S A BREEZE:
These 15-Minute Chickpea Gyros from I Heart Vegetables are such a great weeknight meal. Not only do they come together in a cinch, but they're packed with flavour and plant-based protein. A total win in my books.
SOMETHING FOR FLAVOUR:
SOMETHING TO SAVOUR:
Lastly, I am all over cherries at this time of year, so these Healthy Cherry Muffins are where I'm at in the savour department right now. They're made with a blend of rye and all-purpose flours, oatmeal, yogurt, and a handful of dark chocolate chunks for good measure.
