As promised here is our first documented week of 80% plant based meals. If you missed why this lifestyle change was made you can read about it by clicking here.
Once again this week I was solo from Monday morning on. So some meals were thrown together quickly with very little prep time involved since it was just me.
Saturday: veggie lo mein
Sunday: farro shrimp with lemon, dill, zucchini, and peas
Monday: sun dried tomato and spinach casserole with artichokes
Tuesday: leftover casserole from the night before
Wednesday: braised cauliflower and spinach
Thursday: leftover braised cauliflower and spinach from the night before
Friday: take out
I am amazed how much easier it is to cook without meat. I never have to worry about trying to remember to take out anything to unthaw and plus not having to cook meat saves so much time in the cooking process. It’s a win win for me in time and health.
And for those of you who are watching my workout schedule for our upcoming hiking trip here is what this week was like.
Monday: rest…..we were up way to early for my husband to catch his flight, so just getting through the day was a workout in itself
Tuesday: morning gym session: 30 minute elliptical and weights
***hills were scheduled also for the evening hours but we had major thunderstorms all night…so we cancelled them
Wednesday: 20 hill laps
Thursday: morning gym session: 30 minutes elliptical and stretching
Saturday: lawn cutting and chores
All in all a good week. I am keeping up with home life and fitting in workouts the best I can when solo.We have a lot of things being scheduled in our lives right now, so my workouts are the one thing that keep me level headed in all the chaos. This I am thankful for.
