WLC Week 8 – Shop, Prep, and Eat!

Also known as: you have one week left! I’m pretty happy I stuck with my goal of posting 8 weeks of meal plans with nary a recipe repeat. Hopefully you found a few recipes that are now in your meal-planning arsenal.

As for this week, let’s kick it off right with a delicious meal of grilled whole chicken, “rutabaga deliciousness“, and brussels and kale salad (omit cheese).

Week 8 Sunday Supper

Then, we’re going to try to keep it pretty easy and straightforward the rest of the week as you cruise to the finish line with:

  1. Salads with canned tuna (or sardines, if you’re there!) and the Tessemae’s dressing of your choice
  2. Stuffed Bell Peppers from Balanced Bites (making 1.5x the recipe, use beef, ground turkey, or pork!)
  3. CrockPot Ropa Vieja and Cuban-Style-Rice from PaleOMG (omit bacon)
  4. Breakfast Casserole (x2)

Side Dish/Meal Suggestions

Most of these are pretty complete meals, but if you need to round things out, roast some sweet potatoes or grab some fruit of your choice. These options are reflected in the grocery list!
