As I was making my menu for the week, I realized just how crazy busy my week actually was. There is not even 1 night free, which isn’t unusual anymore. Instead of freaking out, I remembered that I prayed for all of this. The healthy kids, a wonderful husband, a job, a church we love, friends, etc. Each of those bring much happiness, and much busyness. There are athletic practices, music practices, church group, fundraiser dinners, church and even a Bieber concert thrown in there this week.
Instead of feeling defeated before the week has really begun, I go back to my menu and start trying to figure it out. I need to make dinners that are delicious, healthy, plant-based & easy. Keyword here, EASY!
I know I’m not the only one with busy nights, in fact, many of my friends and those I coach are constantly telling me how they eat out most nights and just can’t find the time to make a good “home-cooked” meal. But trust me, but with a little planning, you can make a good-for-you meal just as quickly as it’d take you to drive somewhere and grabbing something to go. And just in case you need a little extra help, here's my downloadable Weekly Menu Planner to make dinners a little easier for you.
As for a recipe, well I have that too! Whether you have had Thai food or not, this Thai Green Curry with Cauliflower will take you on a little culinary adventure and is a perfect start to your meal planning. This is a wonderfully, rich & creamy dish, with just enough heat to make you smile. Best of all, it's so, so easy to make and takes less than 30 minutes!
This winter, we took the kids to see the movie Creed and it's been non-stop, all things Rocky since then. We have all watched & re-watched, every single movie over the past 2 months and even now, I’m sitting here with my daughter, watching as Rocky admits to Adrian that he is afraid to fight & lose everything shortly after Mickey's death. As always, Adrian ends up encouraging him, telling him that she believes in him which leads to a more intensely driven training sequence. Enter “eye of the tiger”……..
This is seriously such a great movie series (Rocky V included)!
Do you know what else is seriously good? Nestle Crunch candy bars, or at least they use to one of my favorites when I was younger. Something about the sweet chocolate with crispy rice in each bite, had me running to the corner store to spend what little money I had as a kid.
