Beefless Burgers and Meal Planning

Happy Friday, friends!

Thursday is often quick ‘n’ easy dinner night, and last night that meant:

    • Crispy Tenders
    • Gardein Beefless Burger
        • These were free, after using a coupon and buying them on sale! I was quite skeptical. They smelled funny while cooking, and tasted ‘different’ at first, but I would describe them as having a grilled beef burger-aftertaste. But they totally grew on me! After a few bites, I stopped thinking about beef, and started thinking of them as their own ‘food,’ and I like them! Quite a bit! I served them bunless with American cheese and ketchup. The carnivorous huz was actually a fan too. (Maybe even more so than me! They are hearty, packed with protein (21 grams!), and low calorie (170/burger). We’ll eat these again.
    • Creamed Spinach & Leeks
    • Crispy Crowns


Last night I started working on the next week’s dinner meal plan and grocery list. Here’s the plan:

  • Friday – Out to dinner
  • Saturday – ?
  • Sunday – Chicken with Cornmeal Dumplings
  • Monday – Bacon Pierogi Bake and Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • Tuesday – Beefless Burgers, Quinoa with Dried Cherries and Pistachios, Asparagus
  • Wednesday – Polenta Rounds with Sausage Ragout
  • Thursday – Roast Chicken with Potatoes and Butternut Squash

Sound good? Creating a weekly meal plan minimizes trips to the grocery store, saving both time and money, and also helps me eat healthier meals during the week.
