This is a continuation of my My Experience with a “7-Day No-Added-Sugar Meal Plan That’s Actually Doable.” Today’s post shall focus on Day Six, with my improvements and comments. (Want to catch up? Here’s the introduction, shopping and meal prep, and Day One, Day Two, Day Three, Day Four, and Day Five.)
I mentioned last week how I was uncertain if I should still continue this blog series during the middle of COVID-19. In the end, I decided to proceed and I am thankful that I did! I had forgotten about the “Whole Wheat Pasta with Lemon Kale Chicken” recipe. After rediscovering it on my blog, I actually made it again for dinner. Of course I got rid of the nasty kale and substituted it for spinach instead. It was delicious.
With that in mind, I shall share that the menu for Day Six involved the following items:
- Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos
- Southwestern Quinoa Bowl With Black Beans & Lime Crema
- One-Pot Hash with Chicken, Sweet Potato & Kale
Breakfast: Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos
This was a repeat recipe. I decided to try out their actual version, instead of just relying on my egg cooker. As I was following their directions for the eggs, I realized something. These are not fried eggs. Rather their instructions are for sunny side up eggs, which are distinctively different.
Lunch: Southwestern Quinoa Bowl With Black Beans & Lime Crema
Originally, I was not going to make this for lunch as I had an appointment I had to run to. I was just going to use leftover diner from Day Five. However, when I saw how quickly it could be thrown together that morning, I decided to still take it as lunch.
Dinner: One-Pot Hash with Chicken, Sweet Potato & Kale
This dinner came together more quickly because I had prepared the chicken the night before. Also, I heavily modified the recipe. My kale went straight in the trash. I used spinach instead.
Concluding Thoughts for Day Six
Day Six is done! Today I made Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos, Southwestern Quinoa Bowl With Black Beans & Lime Crema, and a One-Pot Hash with Chicken, Sweet Potato & Kale.
I’ll give my standard disclaimer that this is not a diet. I want to create for myself a healthy, sustainable life-style. I want to remain Clearly Alive.
