What’s for dinner? February 9-15

It’s been a rough week with a teething and fussy baby, and it’s times like these when I appreciate a well-stocked fridge with prepared meals and snacks. So let’s keep it going with next week’s meal plan:

Meal #1: Coconut chicken in lettuce wraps (from Oxygen: mix coconut flour with shredded coconut, add chopped chicken and coat well. Cook in pan for several minutes until no longer raw, then add lime juice. Eat in lettuce wraps with sliced red peppers)

Meal #2: Feta platter–similar to last’s week tuna plate (crumble 200g goat feta on a platter. Use chopper and finely chop 1/2 white onion and add pepper to it, sprinkle on top of feta. Finely dice a tomato and sprinkle on top. Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons, add about 3 tbsp good quality olive oil, add salt. Sprinkle with dried or fresh oregano. Eat with whole wheat pita bread)

Meal #3: Garlic and cilantro shrimp (heat olive oil and butter in pan, add 1lb of peeled raw shrimp and cook until pink. Add 3 mashed garlic cloves, 1/2 bunch chopped cilantro, and juice of 1/2 lemon and cook for a few minutes longer. Make sure you eat this dish with whole grain crusty bread to mop up all that flavourful juice!), green salad

Meal #4: Salsa chicken chilli (I subbed the beef for ground chicken), roasted sweet potatoes

Meal #5: Chicken and tofu soup/your go-to chicken noodle soup, green salad
