Ok, I’ll admit it. I bit off more than I can chew with the Saturday Shopping List posts I’ve been doing the past few weeks. I put a lot of intentionality and attention to detail into each list, which is good, but time and energy are key factors needed to keep such a boat a float. So, I have decided to do a weekly “mini” shopping list (well, not a list really. Just a bunch of recipes you should make for the week) with a more detailed list once a month. I have received some wonderful feedback from some of you about these lists. First, I am immeasurably grateful for you taking the time to share your thoughts. So helpful and encouraging. Second, I’m glad to know that this has become a really helpful resource for people (which is also very motivating to me).
I will still be updating my Saturday Shopping List board on Pinterest each week. If you almost always use Pinterest when cooking like I do, this is an easy way to get all your weeks recipes in one place.
I have found some amazing recipes that I think will get you motivated to get into the kitchen a little more. Without further ado, I give you my “mini” list.
SOUTHWESTERN KALE, SWEET POTATO + QUINOA POWER SALAD Cookie + Kate
This salad is really delicious. I used baby spinach. Vegans, skip the feta.
HERBY BARLEY AND MUSHROOM SALAD Bon Appétit
I recently made this recipe but added roasted butternut squash (OMG!) and tossed it with some arugula and fresh basil. Vegans, skip the parm. Use coconut oil for the butter.
FALAFEL WINTER BLISS BOWLS Pinch of Yum
Haven’t made this yet. Making it on Thursday. Can’t wait. It has roasted carrots, baked lentil falafel, roasted cauliflower, pistachios and a bunch of healthy goods.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH + BLACK BEAN PITA TOSTADAS Camille Styles
Use the other half of your butternut squash to make these sexy babies. Gluten free folks, just be normal and use corn tortillas. Vegans, skip the yogurt.
POTATO SALAD WITH ARUGULA AND LENTILS Yummy Beet
This is salad is delicious. But… it’s even better is you roast the potatoes and add some goat cheese. Just throwing that out there.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH, LEEK, + APPLE SOUP My New Roots
Apples and leeks and sqaush? Oh my! You really can’t go wrong with that combination. I can hear my body thanking me now. Gluten free folk, skip the crouts.
VEGAN WILD MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE The Clean Dish
I picked this recipe for Jazz. He is my midwest comfort food loving vegetarian husband.
