Weekly Meal Plan: Chipotle Spice
I feel like chipotle flavors always pop up everywhere, and I've never really used them in my cooking before. I actually just used to avoid these recipes because I never had the right spices. But I wanted to try something new this week, so I finally got all the things I needed. To make the most of my new pantry additions: I'm spotlighting chipotle recipes!
I found a variety of recipes that incorporate this flavor profile in different ways, including these pumpkin veggie burgers that I'm intrigued to try out. All meals - besides the pumpkin burgers - are WHOLE30 approved! Open the recipes below by clicking on the picture to check out what I found!

I've tried to switch this recipe up, but I find myself always going back to the same combination of 2c kale, 1/2 cup roasted sweet potato, and 2 poached or fried eggs all cooked and then topped with 1/4 of a medium avocado. Roast a bunch of sweet potato on Sunday so this can be an easy and quick throw in during the busy weekday mornings.
During my marathon training, I've found it basically critical to have a little bit of oats or an extra carb the morning of a big run (over 10 miles). I typically just make a bowl of 1/3 cup of oats, supplemented with a scoop of vegan protein powder, and add a banana and almond butter on top.
I always do all my shopping at Trader Joe's, but they didn't have chipotle peppers, so I got my peppers from Whole Foods this week!
