It’s been a few weeks since I did my last Weekly recap with my meals I had planned, but I’m back and I’m very excited to share what food I have planned for myself.
Do you find yourself getting all caught up with the new September routines that everything you had planned to do, doesn’t always stick? I have no idea where September even disappeared to as it seemed to just disappear in the blink of an eye. Am I the only one?
With September starting, I really wanted to make a point of getting up a little earlier giving myself time to wake up and have a slow morning instead of waking up and jumping out of bed, throwing my bag together and running out the door with tea and breakfast in hand. I’m happy to say, my slow mornings seem to have stuck, but my gym routine has become less frequent.. Will be working on that this month, now that my mornings are down pat.
They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. Just THREE WEEKS! Doesn’t seem so bad, right? Well I find for myself if I try to add so many things at once, only a couple stick. Last month, I challenged myself for my slower mornings and this month I am challenging myself to getting moving more (gym, walking, stretching, etc). Working on incorporating some meditation too.
Now as I’m sure you saw by the title, you’re wondering what the heck I have up my sleeve for this month. I had some Digestive Issues back in March that were pretty bad and everything was doing okay, but I have been advised to reduce inflammation I had to cut out Gluten. I was worried it would be really hard, as I love bread and pasta SO much, but I’m happy to say almost two weeks in and I don’t miss it much yet. Another benefit for me personally with cutting out gluten, is I have more energy throughout the day.
I am dog sitting for two weeks, so enjoying all the Dog Cuddles with my big boy. He is a Lab/GreatDane, so very long legs, always shuffling his feet on the floor and the biggest cuddle bug ever. I love him so much, so I don’t mind babysitting him.
In regards to this Plastic Free October, a friend posted on her Instagram that she was going to do Plastic Free October (it’s not just for July) so I figured I’d try as well. My plan is to keep any plastic that I do use (although hopefully minimal) and see how much I didn’t use at the end of the month. Comment below if you’re going to join me! It’s always a fun challenge.
Below is my two weeks of meals. You’ll see in my Meal Plan below that I have still made a bunch of my favourite dishes, some just are modified with Gluten free options. This time I got a few recipes together and wrote out a list of every ingredient I needed for each dish, crossed off what I already had at home and went to the store to buy produce and whatever other things I needed. It felt so good when I got home to know that I had literally every ingredient I needed to make all my Dinner meals (minus a few veggies near the end of the two weeks)
- Stirfry with Brown Rice
- GF Pizza and Salad
- Tomato and Cabbage Soup with Salad
- Vegan Swedish Meatballs with Pasta
- Cauliflower Tacos
- Veg Pad Thai
- Broccoli and Tofu Teriyaki
- Butter Cauliflower Curry
- Vegan Mushroom Risotto
- Baked Flatulas
- Vegan Corn Chowder
- Lentil Shepherd’s Pie
As always, I usually take leftovers for Lunch the next day just to make lunch easier and to cut down on food waste.
