We’re hoooommmmmmeeeee!!!! It only took 8 hours of travel with one very tired threenager, but WE DID IT.

And it was a blast. I mean, I may never speak to either of our mothers for at least a month (for the sake of their well-being and mine), but other than that it was definitely a success. Remy is a Disney Queen and absolutely loved meeting all of her favorite princesses, as well as her favorite characters from Cars, Wreck It Ralph, and Monsters Inc. I actually don’t think there is a Disney movie she doesn’t like, so all in all it was a dream come true for her.

But now it’s back to real life and healthy eating. I’m pretty sure my child thinks a french fry is now a food group, so we will need to rectify that ASAP.

Here’s what we’ve got for you in this week’s meal plan!

  • white bean zucchini burgers – perfect veg option for Father’s Day!
  • kale, cherry, and bulgur with savory granola – a celebration of seasonal ingredients
  • healthy pasta salad – yes, it’s a thing.
  • farmer’s market forbidden rice bowls – eat the rainbow!!!
  • easy coconut curry with tofu – SO craving these flavors.

Happy eating!

  • one pot tomato basil quinoa
  • the best pepper and paneer curry
  • vegan stuffed shells
  • spring green pasta with basil-mint pesto
  • vegan black bean tacos with summer vegetables

Happy eating!

Probably one of the best things about knowing how to cook (or at least how to follow a recipe) is that it saves a lot of money I would otherwise spend on travel.

Like, HELL YEAH, I would love to go to the Middle East and shack up with an Iranian grandmother for a few weeks and learn all of her secrets/eat her out of house and home, but it’s just not feasible at this point in time for a whole slew of reasons.
