Weekly Meal Plan: Rosemary
Okay - am I the only one who absolutely loves the smell of rosemary roasting in the oven? We had lamb with rosemary on Easter, and it got me thinking about making some related recipes for this week. I rarely get fresh rosemary ( I just have the spice ) and I love both the taste and presentation of the actual sprigs. So this week I'm spotlighting recipes with fresh rosemary! As per usual, I don't go overboard and make my flavor of the week the highlight of every dish. I rather just find some recipes that utilize it in different ways. Almost all meals are paleo & WHOLE30 approved - read my comments for modifications to keep the meals within the Whole30 and paleo guidelines. Open the recipes below by clicking on the picture to check out what I found!
I didn't include Saturday this week as I typically am gone, just eat leftovers, or eat out. If you get these groceries, you'll have enough to make an egg hash, a smoothie, and potentially even some other left overs.

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.
For an easy green smoothie use 1 cup fresh kale and blend in 1/2 cup almond milk. Once blended add in a cup of your your frozen fruit, 1/2 a banana (preferably frozen), whatever source of protein (vegan protein powder, chia or flax seeds, almond butter), and enough water to mix.
I always do all my shopping at Trader Joe's! I typically find that their packed goods are so much cheaper than other health food stores. For Rx bars, which I recommend as a snack, I purchase in bulk on Amazon.
