Hello from the (currently windy) snowy Sierra Nevada! We have more snow in the forecast (puh-raaaaaaise!), and as you may have seen on my personal instagram account, the ski conditions have been amazing.
Anything new in your neck of the woods? I began reading The Uglies series this week on account of a reader’s recommendation. It’s very enjoyable so far! Super quick and easy to read, the characters are relatable, and the books are based on a dystopian world (my favorite type of novel!). If speedy, thought-provoking reads are your jam, I highly recommend!
Let’s talk food.
All sorts of variety this week.
We’re doing a cozy soup, a rocking nutrient-packed salad, comforting yet healthful pasta, lentil and halloumi curry, and a veggie-and-bean packed Buddha bowl. Holler at your girl if you have any questions, and enjoy your weekend!
Tofu ‘Chicken’ Noodle Soup from Making Thyme for Health
Prep Ahead Tip: Tofu can be pressed and diced into cubes in advance.
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: This recipe is vegan and gluten-free.
Animal Protein Option: Substitute the tofu for one chicken breast, chopped.
The Greenest Chopped Salad from She Likes Food
Prep Ahead Tip: Salad comes together very quickly but can be made up to 2 days in advance, if desired.
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Recipe is gluten-free. Omit feta to make vegan.
Animal Protein Option: Add grilled or rotisserie chicken to the salad, or serve salad alongside salmon.
Fettuccine with Swiss Chard Pistachio Pesto and Butternut Squash from Eats Well With Others
Prep Ahead Tip: The pesto and butternut squash can be prepared ahead of time so that all you have to do is warm them and cook the pasta on the night you plan to make it!
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Omit the parmesan to make vegan. Use gluten-free pasta to make GF.
Yellow Curry Lentils with Halloumi from The Roasted Root
Prep Ahead Tip: The lentils and rice can be cooked up to 3 days ahead of time.
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Omit the halloumi to make this recipe vegan – consider replacing with red potato and/or chickpeas.
Animal Protein Option: Add one chicken breast to the curry recipe.
Chickpea Broccoli Buddha Bowl from Hummusapien
Prep Ahead Tip: The sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance. Rice or quinoa can also be cooked up to 3 days in advance.
Vegan/Gluten-free Substitutions: Recipe is already vegan. Use tamari to make gluten-free.
Animal Protein Option: Add your favorite meat to the bowl – grilled steak or pork would work marvelously!
