What I Ate-A Week’s Worth of Healthy Dinners

2 Jul

Last week was a tough week for me. The days were long, daunting, and stressful. Little Mr. woke up 2-3 times each night (teething is no fun for anyone!) and work was nightmarish. Through the stressful week, I found therapy in cooking. I cooked dinner every night this week (and Hubby helped most nights). I found most of the recipes online at Paleo Plan. I do not eat a strictly Paleo diet, but I’d say I am “practically Paleo”. The exceptions are that I eat rice, beans, and gluten free bread on occasion. I do enjoy Paleo recipes, and I found many yummy ones on this site. Here’s the meals I made this past week:

Monday: Mediterranean Chicken with Artichoke Quinoa Salad

Mediterranean Chicken-Capers, Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives

Tuesday: Italian sausage links with brown rice, black beans and a spinach salad

Wednesday: Lime-Cilantro Pork and Sauteed Veggies with Lemon and Basil

Thursday: Cilantro Turkey Burgers on a lettuce “bun” topped with avocado and red onion with sweet potato fries

Healthy Burger Toppings

Simple Sweet Potato Fries from Eat Nap Play

Friday: Spaghetti squash with Turkey Vegetable Meatballs and Vodka Sauce

My favorite of all these meals were the Cilantro Turkey Burgers. They were very flavorful and juicy. We will definitely be adding this meal to our arsenal. The Mediterranean Chicken is great too and really simple to make. I hope these recipes give you some healthy dinner options to try. Leave a comment and let me know how you like them. Enjoy!

Making Friends Through Online Social Networking

23 Mar

I want to share my most recent adventure with you. Yesterday, I went to visit the Challenge Loop headquarters.  Challenge Loop is an iPhone app. that let’s you join fun challenges and share your progress with pictures, comments, and/or videos. Challenge Loop was a creation that was incubated within the company called IDEA. IDEA is the leading resource for health and fitness professionals and is based in San Diego. To learn more about Challenge Loop, read my first post about them here.

IDEA

Lucky for me, IDEA is not too far from where I live. It only took me about half an hour to get there and a little longer to get home (gotta love San Diego traffic!). I met up with Kelli, the social media/web products manager of IDEA. She showed me around the building, introduced me to a few of her co-workers, and we went out for some lunch. It was Foodtruck Friday, and it was my very 1st food truck dining experience. It was so cool! We hung out on the grass, enjoyed the sunshine, chatted about online social media, and ate our lunch. We both ordered chicken salads from the Paleo food truck. It was very tasty!

I am so excited that I made some new friends through blogging and got to see a little “behind the scenes” action of an awesome local company. I will be hosting a challenge on Challenge Loop soon, so stay tuned!

Have you met any new friends through online networking? I’d love to hear your stories about it!
