Meal Plan #27- Using Whole Ingredients
On Episode #27 of my podcast, Time Management Insider, I talk with Andrea Jones, of OnlineDrea.com, about systems and how she uses them for work and whether they apply to her cooking. The meal plan for this week features five meals that involve cooking ingredients whole, which eliminates a lot of the prep.
Here is this week’s meal plan:
Day #1: Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breasts, Butternut Squash, and Rice
Microwave Butternut Squash (or do it in the Instant Pot or in the oven). After it’s cooked, scoop out the seeds and discard them. Then scoop the flesh out and mash it or puree it with some butter, salt, and pepper. A little maple syrup might be great in there too, especially since the chicken has bacon. But, I didn’t think about that in time and so maple syrup is not on the grocery list. Sorry!
Day #2: Garlic Shrimp, Loaded Baked Potatoes, and Whole Oven-Roasted Broccoli
Top potatoes with sour cream, bacon bits, cheese, and green onions.
Day #3: Air Fryer Italian Sausages, Oven Roasted Zucchini, and Cheesy Rice
Cheesy Rice: (use the leftover rice from Day #1 and gently stir in 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese per cup of cooked rice)
Day #4: Poutine Baked Potatoes and Whole Roasted Cauliflower
Poutine Baked Potatoes (use the leftover baked potatoes from Day #2)
Day #5: Chicken Tacos and Southwest Salad
Chicken Tacos: Cook chicken thighs or chicken breasts. Shred or chop the chicken once it is cooked. Put into hard or soft tortilla shells with store-bought Southwest Chopped Salad. If you can’t find the salad, get a bag of shredded cabbage and a creamy southwest salad dressing. Top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
