"Alexa, make dinner"-- I wish that it could do that. So many nights at 4 or 5 o'clock, that terrible thought lingers in the back of my brain: "What should we have for dinner?"
Here are 10 quick ideas based on my Meal Rhythm framework: I'm giving one from each of the themes I use in my meal planning Wellsheet you can find here on Pinterest.
SOUP: Lemon Rosemary Chicken Noodle Soup
MEXICAN: Crispy Black Bean and Beef Tacos with Quick Coleslaw from the 30Day Slim Down Meal Plan
ENTREE SALAD: Roasted Butternut Squash and Grilled Chicken Salad with Honey Mustard like this one from Rachel Ray
PASTA: Simple Skillet Ziti Bake with High Fiber Noodles (try Barilla Plus or Banza)
CHICKEN: Grilled Tumeric Spice-Rubbed Chicken Thighs with Brown Rice
INSTAPOT: Quick Beef Stew
PORK: Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Vegetables
ASIAN: Quick Weeknight Ramen found on my Instagram
GREEK: Greek Chicken Dinner Platter
SEAFOOD: Shrimp and Garlic Lemon Butter Zoodles
FISH: One Pan Wonder Roasted Salmon and Asparagus
I plan all my meals based on a weekly rotatation: Monday is soup and sandwich night, Tuesday is Tacos or Mexican, Wednesday is Pasta, Thursday is Fish, Friday is Grill Night and Saturday is Chicken... these change with our season, sports and so forth but rhythms can change too! And within a week, if I want to switch a meal based on what I feel like, I already have those ingredients!
