Weekly Meal Plan #5

And here we are with the new menu for this week! I have noticed some of my followers have started as well to create the meal plan, great! Let’s just make obvious what are the positives to have a weekly meal plan:

  • Go to the grocery only once a week! (Leaving the time to live your life!)
  • You think about “what to cook tonight” only once!
  • Can get organised and if your day is really busy, you could decide to use the slow cooker the previous night.
  • If you are in any sort of diet, that’s the best way to keep control/increase/reduce your calories!
  • You can consult your cookbooks, that I bet are there full of dust ! and try those amazing and delicious recipes!
  • No take-away as the dishes are delicious, so why should I even think to get a take-away (full of bad calories?)?! Your bank account will also be pleased about it! 😀
  • Having yummy lunches, not a sad sandwich at work!

So, these are the reason why I keep doing mine, and I love it! So the rest of the week I do not have to think about food, but just relax and enjoy my lunches and dinners!

Here my plan this week. There are 2 ingredients you may not be familiar with: N’duja and Puntarelle.

Nduja is a hot spreadable salami from the south of Italy. I really fancy it, as it is an easy win: can be spread on the bread to make a bruschetta, can be used for sauces for pasta and rice or to saute fish and pork, or also on top of a pizza to make it taste amazing. I really advice you to try it. I normally buy it from Ocado, but nowadays can be found in many supermarkets.

Puntarelle, is another chicory from the Rome area. It is a really good and a little bit bitter, tastse amazing with pasta or spaghetti when cooked with garlic and anchovies. If you want to make it a little bit more rich, you can add some double cream, enjoy!

Always remember to add a salad next to your dish and have some fruit. I normally try to bring and eat 3 different fruit types at work, so with the breakfast and dinner portion I normally eat, will make my 5 portions at day!
