The Weekly Spread: A Dietitian's Meal Plan

This week, I want to introduce you to a concept called COOK ONCE, EAT TWICE.


The idea is that you double a recipe with the intent of eating leftovers another day. I'm going on a trip and leaving the kids home with a sitter - so this will make things easier while I'm gone.


The important thing to remember when cooking once, eating twice - is to choose meals you know your family likes. Our favorite meals are: hummus/tzatziki, rice and bean salad, and tortellini soup.


Here's the menu!


Monday: Green salad with hard boiled eggs, cheese, walnuts, garbanzo beans, apples and bacon! Homemade breadsticks (I love this recipe! Image below is from the website melskitchencafe.com)



Tuesday: Cooking class: chicken with rice + butternut squash + green salad + pears

I'm so excited to see you guys on zoom!



Wednesday: Cooking class leftovers!


Thursday: Elk tacos (which are just like regular ground beef tacos), cabbage w/lime juice, cantaloupe, Rice and bean salad, tres leches cake to celebrate a family member’s birthday!



Friday: Tortellini Sausage Soup + apple slices (recipe and image from budgetbytes.com)



Saturday: Hummus, tzatziki and naan bread before trick or treating



Sunday: Leftover rice+bean salad with cheese tortillas and fresh fruit (whatever is on sale this week)



Monday: Leftover hummus, tzatziki, naan bread

Tuesday: Leftover tortellini soup + cheese sandwiches


Wednesday: cottage cheese pancakes + scrambled eggs w/any veggies in the fridge (I’ll just be getting home and will need something simple + fast, this recipe I created has more protein than regular pancakes!)



Thursday: leek cabbage soup + whole wheat bread and green salad


Friday: out to eat with friends at a Thai restaurant
