What my Saturday looks like. When it's dull outside it's a day to be productive!
The other half is upstairs with a drill, bashing holes in our walls so I'm catching up on some much needed jobs. I finally have another blog post ready to go, I'm most of the way through a hat I should have finished weeks ago and I've been going through our cookbooks to plan our menu for the next 2 weeks. ...
Do any of you meal plan?
I'm so particular about planning our meals sometimes I spend hours on it. I even have a spreadsheet to track it for me. Please tell me I'm not the only one who's this particular 😂😭😂
These Shrimp Summer Rolls are packed full of fresh flavors and succulent shrimp. Grab the #recipe
below or click the link in bio. .
Shrimp Summer Rolls
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
2 tsp. low sodium soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. sriracha
3 Tbsp. warm water
Crushed peanuts and red pepper flakes, optional
10 rice paper wrappers
1 large carrot, peeled and julienned
½ English cucumber, julienned
½ red bell pepper, julienned
⅓ cup chopped purple cabbage
1 oz. cooked rice vermicelli
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh cilantro, mint or basil
5 large lettuce leaves, torn in half
20 medium cooked shrimp, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
1. Prepare the dipping sauce by whisking peanut butter, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic and sriracha in a small bowl. Add 1 Tbsp. of warm water at a time until desired thickness is reached. Pour into a small serving dish and top with crushed peanuts and red pepper flakes, if desired.
2. Fill a pie plate with warm water. Working with one rice paper wrapper at a time, dip wrapper into water, until just pliable, about 15-20 seconds. Remove from water and lay on a work surface.
3. On the bottom third of the wrapper, place a few sticks of carrot, cucumber, bell pepper and cabbage. Add a small amount of noodles, a slice of avocado, a few pieces of cilantro and ½ of a lettuce leaf. Top with 4 shrimp halves. Be careful not to overfill the roll.
4. Roll everything up tightly by pulling the bottom of the roll up and over the filling. Fold in the sides and roll the wrapper up tightly.
5. Transfer roll and place seam-side down on a platter. Cover with a damp paper towel.
6. Repeat steps 2 - 5 until all rolls are assembled. To serve, cut rolls in half and serve with dipping sauce.

Day 71. Five Minute, No-Bake Vegan Granola Bars by Gena @thefullhelping
Weekend meal prep doesn’t haven’t to take ages! Gosh, it doesn’t even have to take 10 minutes (including clean up)✨
Throw these bars together this weekend and have treats stashed in your fridge/freezer (that’s where I store mine). I have made this recipe for ages!! It’s a tried and true in my family. I also used to make it when I was a personal chef in NYC👩🏻🍳
Have questions? Let me know in the comments. Want to save or pin the recipe? I can DM you the recipe — just ask🙋🏻♀️
Serves: 10 to 12
Prep time: 4 hrs 5 min
2 1/2 cups rolled or quick oats
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1/2 cup raisins
2/3 cup peanut or almond butter
1/2 cup honey, maple or brown rice syrup (increase based on how well things stick together)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt (adjust based on which nut butter you use)
1. Mix oats, pumpkin seeds, and raisins in a large bowl.
2. Whisk together nut butter, sweetener, and sea salt.
3. Pour into oat mixture, and mix well, till everything is sticky and combined. If it’s too dry, add a bit more agave.
4. Press mixture into a shallow baking dish that you’ve lined with foil or saran wrap.
5. Cover with more foil/saran, press well into the baking dish, and refrigerate for 4 hours.
6. Cut into bar shapes, wrap, and keep refrigerated or in freezer till ready to use. They will last two weeks in the fridge. Up to one month in the freezer👍

Absolutely flat out today! Out for breakfast this morning - forgot to take a photo.... eggs benny hold the toast 😉
Worked all day and had left over butter chicken meatballs for lunch and then smashed avo on toast for dinner.
Just finished meal planning next week.... I start prac on Monday so need to be super organised so I stay on track. This is our plan for dinners for the coming week, shopping will happen tomorrow so im all good to go and there’s no excuses.
Yes there is only 6 because the men in my life like to throw their own meals together on a Friday or Saturday night 🙄 hence my avo on toast tonight...!
Prepare Yourself!! Plan ahead this week to eat healthier! Use some of the weekend to meal prep or plan out your meals and go to the grocery to be prepared! Eating right takes a little planning! The best way to succeed in eating healthier is to have what you need ready to go for the busy week! Enjoy a calmer, healthier and less expensive week!

Saturday morning breakfasts! I love large and healthy breakfasts like this and better yet are meal plan approved on the new program I’m following! Happy Saturday everyone 💕
Smoked Salmon, Eggs And Tomatoes
The best way for me to have a successful week, nutrition wise, is to meal plan!
So multi tasking, having my breakfast & making my plan for this week. It requires some effort to plan, but it always pays off during the week! It saves me from grabbing quick, unhealthy food, and saves me money because I’ll be heading into the grocery store with a plan.
This is the week of the CROCKPOT! That way I don’t have to use my oven, and won’t require too much effort (the way I like it!!) 😆 Anyone else dislike cooking!?
This menu plan picture has made a huge difference in my life. It has saved me money and time, encouraged me to eat healthier, helped me not waste food, and eliminated the stress of coming up with a meal at the last minute. Each week I stand in front of my lovely menu planner, and using a wet erase marker I write out every meal I want to make that week (only write on the glass of the frame, not on the print), then I go sit down and make my grocery list according to what I just put on the board. My husband loves having everything written down because he knows there is a plan for each meal and that he will never arrive home to me saying “I don't know what I should make for dinner”. There are some times when I just do not feel like eating a meal I had planned for that day, or some last minute thing comes up, so I take a wet paper towel and erase it and switch out the food I had planned for a different day. It’s so simple to be flexible with this menu plan! Another huge advantage is that this menu plan is beautiful and functional, it looks like a piece of art that belongs on the wall in your kitchen and it has an encouraging verse to remind you every day that “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)

A moments silence for my omelette please 🙏🏻😂 it tasted amazing despite the mess on my plate 🙈 quorn ham and hex a cheese with salad 🥗
We ended up spending more than expected because we went to a bigger supermarket today and they had a much larger variety of vegetables and fruits than the one near our house.
So we bought French croissants (can’t believe we found Delifrance!!), king oyster mushrooms and oyster mushrooms, blueberries, cherries, baby spinach and some fresh mint. Oh, and a giant radish for only €1.29!! And an unexciting bag of potatoes not pictured.
Still, this shop was only €15.27, so we spent just slightly above €50 this week (€51.99 to be exact).
