#EatMooreDinner, Vol. 4

My meal planning game has been strong lately! I've tried a lot of new recipes recently- many of which I cannot wait to make again. I have said it a hundred times before here, but meal planning really does keep us on track around here. When I meal plan, I usually plan for 4-5 dinners. We almost aways eat out at least one night each weekend, do leftovers another night and have a randomly put together meal based on what I have on hand in the kitchen. With two little ones in our house, too, I like to make things that can be easily "deconstructed" for them if need be. I also add in a few "extras". Egg muffins, paleo bites, healthy muffins for the little ones- plenty of extra things to have on hand.

Another rule I try to stick to is aside from pizza night, if I'm cooking at home, we are eating mostly Paleo friendly meals. This ensures that our weeknight meals are clean and healthy, leaving room for a few weekend splurges to enjoy.

I am LOVING cooking from the new Skinnytaste cookbook, Fast & Slow. Two of my recipes this week are out of this book! Everything I've made out of here so far has been DELICIOUS. We had the Cold Peanut Sesame Chicken and Cucumber Noodle Salad last night and it was beyond good. The dressing was drinkable and because we had ZERO leftovers, I whipped up a quick batch of it for my lunch salad today. 

Here's what's on our menu this week:

Cold Peanut Sesame Chicken + Spiralized Cucumber Noodle Salad (from Skinnytaste Fast & Slow

Salmon + Roasted Baby Potatoes + Grilled Caprese Vegetables (also from Skinnytaste)
