An explanation

Proposed Meal Plan

Breakfasts

  • Overnight Oats with blueberries

Lunches/Dinners

  • Chirashi bowls
  • Crab salad with zoodles

Snacks

  • Finish those fairly joyless oat crackers

Actual Meal Plan

Breakfasts

  • Overnight Oats with blueberries
  • Açaí bowl out with semi-compliant ingredients
  • Leftover deviled shrimp with rice

Lunches/Dinners

  • The last of the miso orange orange things with rotisserie chicken from last week
  • Chirashi bowls, both home and out
  • Lemon pepper tuna + Kewpie mayo + cucumber + pickled ginger bowls
  • Game night at a friends’ – beef roast, shrimp deviled eggs and definitely non-compliant dessert
  • Chicken & rice out at the wings place one night

Snacks

  • I didn’t really snack much this week
Monday: The last of the orange miso veggies from last week & dinner out – chicken + rice
Tuesday: I love it when a plan comes together. I don’t know if dinner (right) is quite worth a recipe post, but it was delicious. 1 small can lemon pepper tuna + 1 Tbsp. Kewpie mayonnaise + 1 small cucumber + 1 Tbsp. chopped pickled ginger + togarishi seasoning or salt & pepper = yum for a light dinner or lunch
Wednesday: Banana peanut butter açaí bowl out, a repeat of that tuna bowl for lunch, and Chirashi at home
Thursday: Chirashi bowl out for lunch – Skipped dinner
Friday: Game night out with friends – shrimp deviled eggs, Dutch-style pot roast, desserts that weren’t compliant but were worth it
Saturday: Today was a ‘clean the fridge’ day full of rice and seafood

What did I learn this week?

Having 1 thing you batch cooked that can be switched up a ton of different ways makes every meal feel full of possibilities.

Sure, I only had a set number of toppings to choose from, but I could load my bowl down with a couple bites of a ton of different tastes and textures.

I think this is the key to batch cooking – good thing, since I love me a good dinner/Buddha/nourish/whatever the Pinterest kids are calling it this week bowl.
