My chocolate chip cookie review is temporarily on hold due to the hectic holidays, and now that I'm working in West LA for the next two weeks. Thank goodness I can stay at the boyfriend's place while I work here. Unfortunately, this also means I don't fit in as much gym time as I would like to. To avoid packing on the new year's pounds, I decided to plan my meals for the work-week and pack my lunches as well as make our dinners. So what's on the menu this week thanks to Trader Joe's and Albertsons?
Sunday night- I made yummy fish burritos using Puja's recipe posted on her blog. However I omitted the beans, as neither of us really cares for them. The thing I love about fish is that it takes little to no time to cook. We bought 3 pieces of tilapia for well under $2, and I stuffed the burritos with seasoned fish, shredded cabbage, spices, and a nice spicy guacamole.
Monday night- I stumbled upon a 4 pack of salmon burger patties from Trader Joe's. I'm trying to get as much salmon as possible in my diet, and at 110 calories a patty, this looks like a great option. So I'm making salmon burgers on whole wheat buns.
Tuesday night- I'm doing a simple shrimp and veggie sitr-fry with rice.
Wed night - I'll post this recipe later if it turns out well, but I'll be making an Indian style yoghurt covered salmon. I'll serve it with a nice fruity Indian rice and a cucumber salad.
Thursday night - salmon burgers again.
As you can see, each night's dinners should take less than 30 minutes to cook.
