Meal Prep with RADO. Time to get back on schedule with your health and nutrition. I personally have fallen behind with meal prepping for myself lately so I figured I could put together a little weekly plan for all of us to stay true to our health. Create yourself a weekly food schedule and hold yourself accountable, is the goal for the week. This will not only benefit your health, but your wallet will thank you as well.
Breakfast: This is an easy meal for me. I start every morning either with a RADO nutrition detox shake or protein shake. Shakes can be too cold for some mornings so my little trick is I add the powder to a warm bowl of gluten-free oatmeal. Just add a little more water than normal and I usually add some extra cinnamon. Cinnamon will help boost your metabolism to start your day as well!
Monday- Crock Pot Chicken Salsa
I don’t know about all of you, but the last thing I want to think about on a Monday night is cooking. I usually try to make my meals for Monday on Sunday or I stick to a good crock pot recipe. This week I will start off with one of my favorite easy chicken crock pot recipes, Crock Pot Chicken Salsa. This easily goes with cilantro lime rice, a little southwest or bbq chicken salad, or even alone. Find the full recipe here.
Tuesday – Shrimp Tacos
Taco Tuesday, we love you! You might be a bit confused by this, but yes tacos can be made RADO Nutrition friendly. This shrimp taco recipe is super easy and detox friendly. We recommend finding gluten free tortillas or brown rice tortillas as flower and corn tortillas are not RADO Nutrition approved. Hint: If you don’t feel like cooking again, use your left over Crock Pot Chicken Salsa for the tacos, it makes for the best tacos the day after. Find the full Shrimp Taco recipe here.
Wednesday – Turkey Burger and Eggplant fries
Happy Hump Day! Personally, on hump day I usually want a hearty home cooked meal to help me feel like I have finally completed half the week. Turkey burgers (without the bun or on a gluten free bun) are a great source of protein. Trader Joe’s makes a great gluten free hamburger bun (their hotdog buns aren’t too shabby either). I always add avocado (when in season) to my burgers, a great source of healthy fat. As well as tomatoes, lettuce, and pickles. The eggplant fries are one of my favorite dishes and pair perfectly with the turkey burger. I always feel like I am eating something I shouldn’t but they have great nutritional value. Get the full turkey recipe here and the eggplant fries recipe here.
Thursday – Grilled Salmon with Cauliflower mash
This one is a Lisa Rado special. I haven’t quite perfected it as well as Lisa has, but this recipe sounds so fancy and yet it is so simple. This recipe is great for a date night or wine night (no wine while detoxing). When I make this recipe, I cheat a little bit. Most health food stores make cauliflower in a rice shape ready for cauliflower mash, I always try to buy it that way. Hint: It’s usually by the pre-made salads or fresh cut fruit in the refrigerated section of the market. A great piece of salmon isn’t always accessible and trust us we understand, so you can always switch to a great lean piece of steak or roasted chicken for tonight. Get the Salmon recipe and the Cauliflower mash here.
Friday – Shrimp Stir Fry
TGIF! Celebrate with a nice warm Shrimp Stir Fry. This recipe is amazing because you can add so many different vegetables and with all of the great flavors kids and adults tend to lose focus on how many vegetables they are really eating. Using fresh shrimp for this dish is always optimal but we know its not always possible. You can always use the frozen shrimp, just pay close attention to what you are purchasing. You don’t want any shrimp with added flavors or colors. Get the full shrimp recipe here!
Saturday and Sunday –
I would recommend recipes but who am I kidding, you are probably going out to eat. If not you skipped a night this week and you can make that one of these nights. If you have stuck to the plan, congrats! Committing to yourself is one of the hardest commitments and doesn’t happen for most. We have tons of other recipes on the blog and we are always adding more. Feel free to check out the blog for Saturday and Sunday.
Cheers! Congrats on another week of staying true to you and your health. If you have RADO Nutrition recipes please feel free to email them to [email protected] Also, if you made any of the dishes and have feed back or pictures feel free to send them into us as well. We would love to post about them.
