(These are groceries and recipes that I am suggesting to my Clients)
Our goal is NOT to gain the “Quarantine15”. Here is the hard part: TAKE THIS LIST TO THE STORE WITH YOU. Here is the easy part: When you have these items, print some of the recipes and try them.
You have the same 24 hours in a day but your “job description” has suddenly changed, and if you are like me, you are home making a lot more meals. Here is a SHORT and SIMPLE grocery list that supports some of the simple recipes I have included. These items will help you prepare #one80eating approved meals that are based on protein, fat, and fiber. They are kid-approved & will help you feel full without filling you out. Buy frozen veggies. They are flash-frozen at the peak of ripeness. I am stocking my freezer with frozen, we eat the fresh fruits and veggies first, but since we are going longer between grocery trips, the frozen veggies are SAVING THE DAY! I use frozen veggies when cooking.
Even if you don’t have weight to lose, these are healthy options to help maintain weight:

Belgian Waffles (yields 1 serving)
These are my high fiber and high protein waffles! Make a double batch, cook once and eat often! These are a staple in our house. Use what you have on hand!
Simple Breakfast Bowl
This is #kidapproved and a great breakfast or Bridge Snack
LUNCH: Soup, Salad, & More
Creamy Broccoli Parmesan Soup
I make this soup with frozen veggies, it is FILLING, CREAMY, and HIGH FIBER! This soup freezes beautifully.
Classic Kale Salad with Chicken
This recipe calls for hemp seeds, don’t have ‘em? No sweat, skip it or add seeds that you have and love.
GG Crackers… Anyway You Like ‘Em
It’s no secret from my insta stories that I love GG crackers! I get tons of questions about these, like where to find them, why I eat them, and what to put on them.
DINNER and SIDES:
Pesto “Broccoli & Cauliflower” Risotto, NO-CARB
This is a dish that I am loving so much! It is creamy, delicious and so satisfying. You won’t miss the rice.
Zucchini Parmesan Meatballs
These are quick to make and great to freeze. Cook once, eat often!
I have been known to serve these as a meal or appetizer
Cauliflower Casserole- A healthy Option
Want something creamy, decadent, & delicious that is also light and healthy? Look no further #kidapproved. This recipe can be made with broccoli instead of cauliflower if you prefer.
Oh, how we love these. These do not disappoint! If you are in the mood for meatloaf, this is a great recipe!
The Best Mashed (NO) Potatoes, EVER!
I met this recipe when living in Jackson, Mississippi. A restaurant called Walkers served this with Redfish. I found the recipe and make it often and serve it with anything. This is one of my personal all-time favorite vegetable recipes. If you make it, please let me know.
You may not know that this is a thing. It is in the freezer section of the grocery. It is so easy and delicious and a great source of fiber! This is a fast and easy way to serve vegetables that your kids will love.
I hope this helps! I wanted to keep it short but give you a great resource!
What recipe are you going to try first?
