Rest & Relish Weekly Meal Plan – February 25 – March 3, 2019
Rest & Relish Weekly Dinners
Mediterranean Orzo Salad. (Vegetarian)
This salad recipe is a great one to make at the beginning of the week and have leftovers for lunch. It pairs great with hummus & pita or a grilled protein.
Sauteed Shrimp over Cauliflower Rice. (Pescatarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)
Our son is out with a friend on Tuesday, so we’re using the opportunity to eat all of the foods he won’t eat! If you buy riced cauliflower (frozen or fresh) and peeled/deveined shrimp, this meal can be ready in under 10 minutes.
See my Lemony Shrimp Quinoa Bowl recipe for sauteed shrimp preparation. I suggest adding minced garlic for extra flavor.
Quinoa with Poached Eggs and Veggies. (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free)
Poached eggs are loved by everyone in our family. Simply fill a large skillet one-third of the way with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; crack and add the desired number of eggs one at a time. Poach for approximately three minutes.
Place prepared quinoa in a bowl, top with one poached egg and your choice of vegetables/herbs.
Kid Adaptation: Our kids don’t eat quinoa, but love poached eggs over pasta.
Grilled Salmon and Vegetables. (Pescatarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)
The weather is so nice in NC right now, so grilling out is a good choice this week. The kids can play outside while my husband and I catch up on the deck while grilling. Win-win!
We love to grill asparagus and sweet potatoes with glazed salmon. Since we have one family member who doesn’t eat seafood, he’ll have chicken using the same marinade.
Versatile Veggie Pizza. (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free)
The veggie bin will need to cleaned out by late Thursday or early Friday, so my Versatile Veggie Tomato Sauce is a clear choice this week.
I plan to purchase a few cauliflower pizza crusts for Friday’s pizza night. My kids LOVE the cauliflower crust and I love that they are getting extra veggies in their pizza!
Leftovers or out.
Soba Noodle Bowl. (Vegan, Dairy-Free)
My kids love noodles and to create their own dish, so this is a perfect meal for kids. Really!
Prep your noodles, toppings and sauce (we like peanut sauce) and let everyone build their own dinner. Try broccoli, edamame, shredded carrots, and peppers for a delicious and healthy meal.
Meal-Prep Tip: Chop extra veggies to serve with lunches throughout the following week.
I hope this Rest & Relish Weekly Meal Plan is helpful to you. What looks good to you this week?
Have a great week!
