January Meals: Week 3

Hey Meal Prep Champ! Another week of delicious food awaits, including tacos, noodles and more!

How do you feel, are you a meal prep champion? Are you excited enough to want to take another look at the decisions your brain hasn’t made for a week? Hurray, here is a decision made for you! Check and confirm.

And what a checklist it is, mate. An incredibly thick, chewy, and bouncy udon dish? Spicy punch tacos with charred tortillas and crispy cool slaw? Soup that tastes warm and cozy all day, but only takes an hour? Oh yes yes yes yes Mrs.

They eat noodles and tacos on the same week. Rodiru, it’s everyone’s birthday?! what to treat

This week’s recipe

Stir-fried Udon Noodles with Black Pepper Vegetables.

Meal 1: Stir-fried Black Pepper Udon

Listen, you won’t be able to eat enough of these noodles! It’s pretty obsessive at this point on our end. good luck. Yaki Udon is the Japanese name for this stir-fried noodle that stole takeaway hearts. So we did our best to make a homemade version that’s perfect for a weekday dinner (thanks for the pre-cooked udon noodles and frozen vegetable stir-fries!). These beautifully chewy, gooey, cheeky, peppery, caramelized, twisted and chewy timeless noodles.

Add protein! Crispy tofu or fried shrimp would be perfect.

Shrimp Tacos with Slaw.

Meal 2: Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Coriander Lime Slaw

There’s nothing like an unhealthy obsession with tacos in our book! Especially for the spicy shrimp tacos, warm corn tortillas stuffed with mashed avocado and creamy cilantro lime slaw with spicy frying prawns? Oh sorry, someone said salty cottia cheese, lime squeezer, and oh, of course, more sauce on top?! How can you not fall in love?

Make it kid-friendly! Go for a little lighter spice seasoning, depending on what your child can handle. Serving up the deconstructed tacos can also be a great way for the kids to try each piece of it individually.

Instant pot wild rice soup in bowl with spoon.

Meal 3: Instant Pot Wild Rice Soup

Once it gets so hot here in Minnesota, it’s a moral duty to remind yourself, “Oh, we love wild rice noodles and you should too!” And this version is no exception, so put it in your meal plan. We threw out the chicken and replaced it with mushrooms. It’s simple, warm, creamy, unpretentious, and ready in an hour.

If you are preparing fresh mushrooms by following the directions in our prep guide, use this vegetable within the first few days to ensure they stay fresh! If dry and well cleaned (not excessively wet), it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Alternatively, you can put it in a bag of frozen mushrooms and skip the mushroom preparation entirely.

Add protein! Shredded chicken would be a very good decision.

Pecan pie energy bites on a plate

Snack/Breakfast: Pecan Pie Energy Bite

Want to whip up another energy bite for the brekkies and snack lovers this week? hey us too! We are completely in love. So we’re glad you got to spend some time with this current heartbeat. Small snack balls with date palm, oats, flax and maple syrup that taste and healthy at best pecan pie. Chewy, sweet and easy to combine… a really special little snack.

Green salad in a bowl with dressing on the side.

Vegetables / Sides: simple green salad

Our favorite girl comes back to save me. We keep returning to the simplicity and taste of a pile of freshly dressed spring greens. She’s ready to dress up with her extra protein/crutons/veggie whatever you have time for, but also makes them as plain, simple and happy as hers.
