In case you missed it, this week I’m sharing a whole week’s worth of simple. balanced meal and snack ideas – perfect for those crazy weeks I know we all have!
WEDNESDAY BREAKFAST: Green smoothie bowl (recipe is just my 4-Ingredient Green Smoothie with a 1/4-1/3 cup plain greek yogurt added in) topped with low-sugar granola (I love Erin Baker’s and KIND peanut butter granolas).
If you haven’t been able to tell from Monday and Tuesday, I’m a big fan of dishes that pack a lot of nutrients into one bowl. With this one I’m getting fruits, veggies, dairy and grains all in one beautiful (and delicious) bowl. It’s a great jumpstart to the day!
WEDNESDAY LUNCH: Hummus and assorted vegetables on a whole wheat bagel with an apple
Again, those of you that follow me on Instagram know I’m all about the hummus and veggie sandwiches! It’s a nice twist on the usual big salad bowl and putting it on a bagel or some really good whole grain bread makes it feel even more special. Pair it with any fruit you like and add a slice of reduced-fat cheese to the sandwich to really round it out!
WEDNESDAY SNACK: Easy roasted chickpeas
I love roasted chickpeas as a snack. They’re a perfect packable, protein-packed snack! They fill you up and satisfy that afternoon salt craving perfectly!
WEDNESDAY DINNER: Whole wheat black bean, corn and sweet potato quesadillas (top with plain greek yogurt, avocado and hot sauce!)
I love these little guys. They come together in a matter of minutes, are made with ingredients I almost always have on hand and are super filling and versatile. You can really stuff them with anything you like – from all different kinds of beans and veggies to chicken or ground turkey breast! Then just top with your favorites and you’re done!
Don’t forget, these are just ideas – jumping off points and inspiration for you to take into your kitchen and make your own! Mix, match and substitute to make meals that fit your preferences and nutritional needs1
