In this version of our weekly meal plan, I’m sharing a bonus dessert that’s super fun for any PB&J lovers in your life. And remember that you can always put together a quick and easy grocery list with just the click of a button.
Meal plan recipe notes:
- Get lots of variety – you want lots of different kinds of fruit
- Get fruits of varying colors – the more varying colors the better!
- Slice things nicely – no big sloppy chunks, take your time and slice things evenly
- Arrange fruit in rainbow colors – makes it very visually appealing
- Have a “star” or something super unique – in my case, I used a starfruit (they’re super sweet and found in most major grocery stores). When I was in Vermont, the fruit bowl I had there had a Cape Gooseberry with these beautiful leaves on it
- Use a rotisserie chicken for even faster meal prep!
- If you don’t have an air fryer, bake muffins in a muffin pan in an oven at 350 for 28 minutes.
- Optional: top finished dish with crumbled bacon and fresh parsley, if desired.
- I like using red/orange/yellow bell peppers for this recipe as they tend to be slightly milder/sweeter in flavor than green bell peppers, but green bell peppers work as well!
- I love making these pancakes into fun shapes for the kids
- This recipe is only 6 ingredients and great to make-ahead and freeze
- Tip: if you don’t have buttermilk, make your own! Just combine milk and juice from half a lemon (or just a wedge of lemon). If you don’t have a lemon, you can use a teaspoon of white vinegar. Let the mixture sit for 3-5 minutes and you’re all set!
- Add vanilla, chocolate chips or blueberries for more fun flavor
- This recipe can be made vegan but omitting the egg and replacing with a flaxseed egg (combine 1 tablespoon flax seeds with 2 tablespoons water).
- If you can’t find cauliflower rice with herbs in it, you may buy plain cauliflower rice and add herbs.
- If burgers crumble while flipping, you can simply use them as a topping on a salad or bowl meal.
