Today was all about preparation for the week and relaxing. I binged an entire show on Hulu while planning out Christmas gifts. It felt so incredible to have a slow day where I could just do nothing. My brain felt like mush after this week and I needed a day to unwind.
In all of my meal plans that I researched, almost everyone suggested this sheet pan recipe. I went with some carrots, mushrooms, peppers and chicken and used a super grain base (quinoa and millet).
This is going to be a very busy week so I want to be as prepared as possible. I also wrote out all of my food for the week so I know exactly what I will generally be eating all week.
My husband is not a huge healthy food person. Last Sunday was the first time in our entire relationship where he didn’t like my food. I even turned him into a dessert person with my strawberry cake. I tried to make a healthy version of Indo Chinese fried rice. I substituted brown rice. He ate one bite. I had to redeem myself.
I made him my family’s jambalaya and he loved it! My pride is healed 🙂
I am grateful for Christmas, slow days and streaming services.
