Weeknight Meal Planner: 06/25/18
Radishes become tender and blushing pink when sautéed, a lovely addition to the quinoa. Paired with a simple lemon-garlic shrimp, this is an easy dinner to add into your weeknight rotation. It's simple and refreshing, and with 23g of protein, there's no doubt that it's satisfying. Sub out your favorite whole grain if you don't have quinoa.
This keto-friendly can be ready in less than 20 minutes. Put this power-packed plate into the weeknight rotation is a good idea for any cook that is short on time. This guacamole, made with toasted walnuts and extra-virgin olive oil, serves up a serious dose of healthy fats. Layer that with salmon, and this dish adds over 32 grams of fat to your day for just two net carbs—and that includes a side salad. Keep this one pinned to your fridge. You’ll come back to it often.
You can’t have Taco Tuesday, but you can have Wrap Wednesday, and once you try these Asian-inspired wraps, you’ll be reserving it on your calendar for weeks to come. Umami-rich fish sauce pulls the flavor weight for these wraps; it’s combined with garlic, ginger, serrano chile, and a bit of vinegar for mouth-tingling sauce for ground pork. Three plentiful wraps have just two net carbs. That’s a carb bargain!
A steak dinner for two feels date-night special, but this meal couldn't be easier. One 8-ounce strip steak is just enough for two; if you care for different levels of doneness, cut the steak in half before grilling.
There’s nobody on this planet who loves fried bologna better than my childhood best friend, R.C. Hux. R.C.’s mother, Jamie, often claimed that R.C.’s wedding would feature fried bologna and cheese sandwiches as the main dish.
Banana pudding is a simple Southern classic that has evolved into an all-American favorite. This recipe lightens up the traditional pudding by using low-fat milk, fat-free sweetened condensed milk and reduced-fat cookies.
