I started a tradition at Budget for Health by sharing various meals I’ve made and loved each month. This has been a fun post to write and it’s been a form of accountability because I want to lead by example when it comes to meal planning that is easy, budget friendly, and healthy. Be sure to check out what we ate in prior months.Homemade rotisserie chicken
We got a few meals out of this one 4-pound chicken. We ate just chicken with some delicious sides and had quesadillas and paleo pad Thai for the next few dinners.
My mom’s meatloaf recipe with some homemade mashed potatoes are a winner on cold days like we’ve been having in Michigan.
Always. Eggs with either homemade hashbrowns or my protein pancakes.
This is a homemade version of Olive Garden’s zuppa toscana. Spicy Italian sausage, kale, potatoes, and homemade overnight chicken stock I made in the crockpot with the leftover bones from our rotisserie chicken.
Thai chicken salad with homemade Thai peanut salad dressing
Oh my word I couldn’t stop talking about how good this was! You can get the dressing and the chicken marinade in the link above.
We love having friends over for dinner. One couple had recently learned how to make Pho so we picked that for our next meal. It was so so good!
Stir fry bowls
Shrimp, lots of veggies, and rice I pre-cooked and kept in the freezer for a night like this when we needed a quick and easy meal.
Paleo Pad Thai
Instead of noodles we sauteed cabbage and I mixed up chicken and green onions with the Thai peanut dressing.
My oh my all three of these meals were phenomenal! We’ll just pretend I took these photos
Here were the 3 meals we got this time:
– Oven roasted chicken with roasted brussels sprouts, carrtos, and parsnips over lemon-thyme basmati rice.
– Marinated flank steak with roasted zucchini, potatoes, and bell peppers
– Ground pork & apple burgers with rosemary potatoes and a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette
