Week 9 recipe playlist
And here's your sample menu and grocery list:
Remember to check what you have before you buy all of these items! A lot of the ingredients in here rollover from week to week
Sheet pan meal for Oven or Galanz
- If you are wanting to try a lower calorie option for the sausage, try a chicken or turkey sausage instead
- This one pairs well with rice or quinoa. Try the pre-made packets of rice or quinoa for a super quick option
- Bacon optional if you don't have time/means to cook it separate
- Try pre-cooked turkey bacon for less prep time
Anti-inflammatory cherry-spinach smoothie
- Can also use berry-cherry frozen blend.
- I would recommend buying a tube of pureed ginger instead of buying fresh to cut down on PREP time.
- Protein is coming from the kefir (can substitute with Greek yogurt) the almond butter & the chia seeds
- Make sure to pair with a 1/2 bowl or plate of non-starchy veggies!
- Salad kit or steamer bag of green beans or broccoli thrown in the last 30 minutes would work well
- For the author's suggestion of pairing with brown rice, try the pre-cooked packets
- No need to reduce the sauce over the stove if you don't have a skillet. Put the sauce in a microwave save container (like a large Pyrex glass measuring bowl) and microwave for about 10 minutes or until it thickens
- Instapot/crockpot/or stovetop
- Makes 12 servings!
- Add 3 cans of diced tomatoes, or pair with a salad kit to meet non-starchy veggie needs
Stove top or electric skillet
- This is a super great recipe to try tofu with if you have not before!
- The seasoning and browning of the tofu creates great texture and flavor
- A very low calorie meal as well!

Balanced Snack Ideas
Some of these may require some grocery shopping and adding your choices to your grocery list.
Remember to pair a snack from the CARB side with a snack from the PROTEIN side! If you have a snack from the CARB side by itself you will have an energy CRASH
