Weekly Eats 9

Hi Friends!

Time for another edition of Weekly Eats! Lots of good things have been making their way into my tummy this past week! Let’s take a look, shall we?

weekly eats 1

1. Starbucks date to catchup with a good friend!
2. Post-crossfit breakfast: eggs + sauteed peppers, onions & black beans
3. Hubby made me French toast :)
4. Double batch of Quinoa Breakfast Bars for hubby

weekly eats 2

1. Grilled cheese w/ avocado & red peppers, a pear, carrots & hummus
2. Random snack- pumpkin seed tortilla chips from Costco & a Greek Yogurt Trailmix Bar
3. Homemade Guac: 2 avocados, onion, tomato, jalapeno, lemon juice and lots of cilantro
4. Lots of carrots for snackin’

weekly eats 3

1 & 2.  Black Bean and Quinoa enchiladas
3 & 4. Black Eyed Pea Burgers: I used the recipe for my Sweet Potato Quinoa Black Bean Burgers w/ Cranberries and subbed black eyed peas for black beans and red peppers for cranberries. They were just ok. I was using up leftover black eyed peas but i really don’t like them very much. The original burger is much better!

For the Enchiladas: I just kinda threw it together but here’s my best guess: 1 c quinoa, 2 cups cooked black beans, 1 red pepper- diced, 1/2 c onion- diced, 1 can low sodium cream of mushroom soup, a handful of shredded mexican cheese, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2- 1 tsp cayenne pepper. saute the peppers and onions for a few minutes until soft. put them in a bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well. grease a pan and pour a little enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. spoon the bean/quinoa mixture into 4 or 5 whole wheat tortillas and place seam side down in the pan. pour a little enchilada sauce on top and spread with a brush so the tops of all the tortillas are covered. sprinkle with cheese, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

weekly eats 4

1. Lentil Vegetable Curry
2. Lentil Veggie Curry w/ Quinoa, salad and Trader Joe’s frozen naan
3. Curried Sweet Potato Soup w/ quinoa, carrots & hummus, berries & an egg
4. Salmon salad with quinoa, peppers, onions, tomato, hard boiled egg and guac!

weekly eats 5

His and Hers Friday Night Dinner: Fish Bowls
Brown rice, roasted sweet potatoes, cod, tomatoes, onion, peppers…plus mine had pomegranate seeds and his had lettuce & cheese


We thought about going out for dinner because we were SO hungry. Instead we came home & made this dinner in under 15 min- panini with two eggs, homemade guac, peppers, onion, tomato & cheese on whole wheat bread, plus fresh fruit and a big salad! Saved us money and was easy, healthy and delicious!


Weekend food prep for my first week back at my internship: quinoa breakfast bars for hubby’s breakfast, sweet potato soup for lunch, quinoa for dinner, lots of hard boiled eggs, homemade trailmix for snacking…plus I made a batch of Perfectly Roasted Chickpeas.

weekly eats 6

Plus there’s always time for treats! M&m’s with lemon ginger water and some cranberry banana “fro-yo” with dark chocolate chips!

  1. I love the “fish bowls.” Definitely not what we called fish bowls in college. LOL!

  3. I was glad to see that you’re a fan of the infamous “bowl” dinner too :) For some reason, when a bunch of mismash is in a bowl together, everything just tastes better!

  4. I love the fancy grilled cheese idea – I rarely make grilled cheese because itz so boring. I should try adding veggies like you did!

  5. Everything tastes better when it’s in a bowl. I’m convinced. I’m also convinced that you should move to NYC so that I can invite myself over for dinner :-)
