Since this is probably a week filled with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we are keeping it simple with one pot and sheet pan meals. We hope this week is filled with holiday joy for everyone.
Breakfast Recipes: Omelette Two Ways
You can’t go wrong with omelettes for breakfast. They can be filled with delicious ingredients like eggs, vegetables, herbs, and cheese, and they are also very nutritious and can make for the perfect way to start your day with energy. One of the reasons why we love omelettes is because omelettes can be made with pretty much any topping you like. Whether it is cheese, vegetables, or sausage, an omelette tastes good with lots of different ingredients. You can even top it off with fresh tomatoes, sour cream, or even salsa. It’s a great breakfast to make your own way!
Lunch Recipe One: Shrimp Soba Noodle
Shrimp soba noodle salad is one of our favorite Japanese recipes and is incredibly easy-to-make, so it’s perfect for beginners. The soba noodle is an underrated noodle that falls second to ramen in popularity and use. However, this buckwheat based noodle is as versatile as it is healthy, move over ramen there’s a new noodle in town.
Lunch Recipe Two: Parmesan Chicken with Kale and Cauliflower Rice
This Parmesan Chicken and Kale and Cauliflower Rice recipe is easy and simply perfect for a light and refreshing weekday lunch. It’s a great low carb meal with minimal ingredients that you can make in less than 20 minutes. When it comes to eating healthy, it’s all about including a balance of proteins, veggies, smart carbs, and healthy fats. This meal delivers a powerhouse of nutrients that will help you meet your health goals.
Dinner Recipe One: Asian Glazed Salmon with Kale and Butternut Squash
There are many recipes you can use to prepare salmon, but one that never disappoints is an Asian baked salmon recipe. Our version of this is a baked sesame-ginger salmon. The marinated salmon soaks up the flavors of the ginger sesame dressing and it is then baked to perfection in the oven alongside seasoned kale and butternut squash. This quick-and-easy salmon recipe also only uses one sheet pan, which may be an even better benefit than the high sources of fiber and healthy fats you’ll find throughout this dish. We’ll take our Omega-3s with a clean kitchen any day.
Dinner Recipe Two: One-Pot Chicken Spaghetti
If there is anything more satisfying than a big serving of pasta goodness, it’s not having to clean the entire kitchen afterward. Our healthy chicken spaghetti recipe ticks both of those boxes. It is not only scrumptious but can be made in just one pot! One-pot pasta meals are a go-to when it comes to meal prepping because you’re reducing the amount of stovetop and oven space needed to complete it.
Meal Planning and Preparation Tips:
- One-Pot Meals and Sheet Pan Recipes are the way to go if you are looking for easy ways to meal prep for the week. For this week, the Parmesan Chicken and Chicken spaghetti were prepared with one-pot recipes. The Salmon and breakfast roasted veggies were prepared in sheet pan recipes. Lastly, the shrimp soba noodle salad only required us to cook the soba noodles. All these meals were time savers and also prepared with fewer dishes.
- Not only did we simplify meal prep with one pot and sheet pan recipes, we streamlined the ingredients so that you didn’t have to pile up your groceries with so many different foods. Instead, we bought ingredients in larger batches and spread them throughout the recipes to keep it simple. For this meal plan, we used bell peppers for our breakfast omelettes and Shrimp Soba Noodle Salad. We used mushrooms in our breakfast omelettes, Parmesan Chicken, and Chicken Spaghetti. We used Kale in both the Parmesan Chicken and Salmon recipe.
