So….Thanksgiving happened. Thanksgiving is pretty much the definition of healthy…ish…. Well, maybe more like unhealthy ish? I literally had pancakes for breakfast 3 days in a row….some with cheesecake on top (ya...cheesecake...I have no shame)…..some with chocolate chips….not to mention the butter laden deliciousness that was Thanksgiving dinner and the leftovers from said dinner. Needless to say, I think we all need to get back on the healthy wagon…for this week anyway. Here’s my plan for the week:
Sunday: Veggie stir fry with cauliflower rice and dry fried tofu
Dry frying tofu is my favorite way to fry tofu. In fact, it’s the only way to fry tofu that I haven’t messed up. I got the technique from Thug Kitchen. Essentially, you cut tofu into triangles, get a dry pan (no oil) super hot, and put the tofu on in a single layer. Cook the tofu while pressing it down with a spatula whilst it screams for mercy. Do this on both sides for a few minutes each. This results in crispy delicious tofu that has a great texture and no added oil. So awesome!
Monday: Slow cooker lentil tacos
I have some leftover tortillas and avocados are on sale so I must make tacos….right? I’ll most likely make the filling in the instant pot.
Tuesday: Spicy Ethiopian Stew
If you’re like me, you have some leftover potatoes from Thanksgiving you need to get rid of. This seemed like the perfect antithesis to my buttery mashed potatoes from last week. This recipe calls for Berbere spice, which I bought off Amazon for fairly cheap. I’m excited to try it out!
Wednesday: Leftover night!
Thursday: Eirik’s cooking….. He’s going to attempt a pasta dish. Very exciting times!
Friday: Party time!
So what are you all going to do to try to eat healthier this week? Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see pics of this week's recipes. Good luck getting back on that healthy train friends!
