Healthy Weekly Meal Plan 7.30.16! A healthy weekly meal plan featuring a Honey Pineapple BBQ Chicken Sandwich, a Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Banh Mi, a Thai Chicken Salad Wrap and more!
So, I finished the first week of my nutrition class!!! I am learning so much you guys. . I can’t wait to get back home, sit down and start digesting everything I am learning and, most of all, getting into the kitchen to test some new recipes!
If you follow me on snapchat (hipfoodiemom1), you can see what I do at school everyday . . from 9-12, we’re in lecture (I try to snap key slides like the one above) and then we’re in the kitchen cooking from 1-4pm. It’s great! This week we learned about aquafaba!!! Do you guys know what this is?! Amazing!
I am staying with my dear friend, Susie, who lives in Brooklyn, so I take the train everyday into the city. I feel like a real New Yorker! I had a great meeting with this guy, who is my new agent! I am so excited you guys! Look out for some great things ahead!
OK, on to our weekly meal plan!! We’ve got some great recipes this week!!! I hope you give some a try! I’m in NYC for one more week but look out for a great recipe on Monday! Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll be exploring Wiliamsburg, Brooklyn!!!! and hoping to eat at La Esquina!!!
