• CNC Meal Plan: Week of April 7 {I Went Nuts at Trader Joe’s}

    April 8, 2013

    Hi, guys! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

    So, I went a little nuts at Trader Joe’s this weekend. Mal and I are off to Ireland this coming weekend, so I wanted to keep things simple with our meal plan and make sure we didn’t have too much perishable food in the refrigerator at the end of the week. Basically, I went to TJ’s and loaded up my cart with all sorts of easy, frozen food options.

    I sort of meal planned before I left the house and then tried to get it together at Trader Joe’s while shopping, but most of my meal planning happened once I got home. Here’s what I came up with…

    • Sunday: Chili Lime Chicken Burgers with Garlic Fries and roasted broccoli
    • Monday: Grilled black cod with green beans and couscous
    • Tuesday: Cheesy Garlic and Herb Brussels Sprouts with Chicken Sausage
    • Wednesday: Chicken quesadillas with fire roasted peppers and onions
    • Thursday: Chicken salad sandwiches with Sweet Potato Tots
    • Friday: Pork gyoza potstickers, chicken fried rice, and edamame
    • Saturday: Out to dinner

    Canned Cuban style black beans with frozen brown rice (cooked, obviously, to eat). Easy peasy meal! So satisfying. I might add a little hot sauce or feta or goat cheese too.

    Other favorites? Organic pizza. Can’t go wrong with the spinach salad kit with dried cranberries, blue cheese, candied pecans and raspberry vinaigrette. It’s the best salad evah!

    I love the chicken lime burgers!! Another big favorite is the movie theater popcorn, and dark chocolate bars.
