Tripp’s Plate Tuesday + Meal Idea

Happy Tuesday everyone! Tripp and I had a delicious dinner 🙂

Ham roast + Tessemae’s ketchup, peas + ghee, beets and broccoli. So good!!

 And my plate looked the same 😉

So here’s a really fast meal idea… chicken soup version 3783773 haha! 

Ingredients are listed above. Sauté the veggies in a good fat (I did ghee and coconut oil) then add your liquid (gold). I did a jar of concentrated broth with a jar of water. Let this simmer until your veggies are to your liking. Serve with any or all of the following: white rice, chicken, spinach, drizzle of coconut cream (the solid part in the coconut milk can!). 

It can heal your heart and body in one big helping 😉

Menu + Meal Idea–> Monday 2/20

Happy Monday, y’all! I almost forgot about sharing our gameplan for the week. Once again, we had a good selection of proteins in the freezer, so I planned around that. 


Prepped food:

  • Ground beef with salt, pepper, turmeric, oregano, onion, garlic powder, and cumin. 
  • Grilled steak
  • Jasmine rice cooked in broth
  • Pressure cooker potato salad 
  • Pumpkin oatmeal breakfast cookies
  • Pumpkin snack bars
  • Chopped celery and carrots

I also have some salad greens, a bag of green beans to sauté, and a bag of cauliflower rice. I plan on browning a pack of sausage and making some meatballs out of ground turkey or chicken midweek. I’ll also roast sweet potatoes in some ghee and salt/pepper. 

Basically when I have the chance to prep this much, I kind of toss the idea of a menu and go more with “choose a meat and a couple of sides” and eat! 

Meal idea(s)… let’s talk breakfast. You probably noticed the pumpkin breakfast cookies. I pretty much modified this recipe to fit what I had on hand. It’s like baked oatmeal in cookie form! And what about a snack? I did these pumpkin bars (but added molasses for some nutrients!) for a snack… Tripp approved! I serve mine with chocolate chips for a fun sweet treat 🙂 


And lastly,  I have so many recipes in this cookbook to try. And honestly this potato salad was tagged but more for that first summer cookout. Well it was so beautiful Sunday, I decided why wait for summer?!? A mix of Primal Kitchen mayo and mustard and celery… a pinch of paprika… and you’re looking at a fun side. It really did spruce up my lunch today!

And something about pressure cooking just makes you feel like Iron Chef worthy 🙂 Ha. 

Side note, y’all don’t forget my #switchtosafer Beautycounter Social is still going on. All orders placed through that link in the month of February will go into a drawing! The winner will get a bag of samples. I’ve had some fun BC parties so far this month… here’s a little clip from this weekend’s 😉 


Good night and happy Tuesday!
