Part of my “job” (I don’t like to call it a job because I love it too much) is to coach clients into creating balanced meals that are easy, nutritious, and support dietary restrictions and needs. Some clients are dealing with auto-immune disease, IBS, hormone imbalances, some want to eat to lose weight, and some want to avoid pro-inflammatory ingredients like dairy, gluten and sugar.
So, I have decided to post weekly menus of a few healthy meals and snacks, that are always free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. This is to get you meal planning, which reduces stress and saves you time for other important things. Not all recipes I post are plant-based, so feel free to substitute your favourite vegetarian protein with some ingredients that I might include.
These dinner and snack recipes are great for sharing over the Holidays, particularly if you are hosting or have family staying with you. I always test these recipes first to make sure they are tasty and simple to create, and these made the list. Enjoy!
Meal 2: Orange Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry, served over Cauliflower Rice or Quinoa with Parsley and Peas
Meal 3: Vegan Pumpkin Mac n’ Cheese served with a small Arugula Salad topped with red bell peppers, slivered almonds and cucumber for a little crunch
Snack 1: My absolute favourite Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Snackk 2: Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies
Enjoy, and have a great week. Keep in touch and let me know which recipe was your fave and why! Jen xo
