I know I try to eat more veggies and meat. But I could use some meal ideas.

1 mom liked this

spicy roast chicken, baked sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli (or other nutrient rich veggie)

beef roast, steamed carrots, salad

pulled pork salad

pizza salad

taco salad

pork roast or chops, coleslaw, steamed green veggies

spaghetti squash topped with meaty spaghetti sauce (homemade)

zucchini or eggplant lasagna

baked fish, cauliflower mash with cheese, steamed broccoli and carrot mix

tonight's meal is unstuffed cabbage roll casserole


pretty much anything except pasta, bread/biscuits/rolls, or beans.  I don't increase the meat portion to compensate...I add more veggie sides.

This is one of my favorites.

Greek Salsa Chicken

Ingredients:

For the Salsa:
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly chopped oregano
For the Chicken:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (7 ounces each)
pepper to taste
kosher salt to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 lemons, cut into wedges

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°.
In a large bowl, combine feta, tomatoes, olives, parsley, lemon juice, 1/4 cup olive oil and oregano. Cover and chill in refrigerator.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large roasting pan over medium-high heat. Season chicken with kosher salt and pepper. Sear chicken, about 1-2 minutes each side; remove from heat.
Squeeze lemon wedges over chicken to coat. Place the squeezed lemon wedges around the chicken breasts. Roast until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160°, about 25-30 minutes. Transfer chicken and lemons to a large platter. Top with salsa.
