I know I try to eat more veggies and meat. But I could use some meal ideas.
spicy roast chicken, baked sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli (or other nutrient rich veggie)
beef roast, steamed carrots, salad
pulled pork 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
For the Salsa:4 ounces crumbled feta cheese1 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives1/4 cup minced fresh parsley1/4 cup lemon juice1/4 cup olive oil1 tablespoon freshly chopped oreganoFor the Chicken:6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (7 ounces each)pepper to tastekosher salt to taste2 tablespoons olive oil2 lemons, cut into wedges
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.
That looks really good. I am trying to get some new meal ideas. Thank you.
