The Naked Kitchen Meal Plans

This week has given us the first real taste of fall in Southern California.  It’s been cool, cloudy and we even had a day of rain!  It’s been wonderful and I want nothing more than to put on a big thick sweater, warm up some soup and sit by the fire with a glass of hot apple cider.  I love fall, it’s my favorite season.  Here’s my fall inspired meal plan that is sure warm you up on those cool, crisp days.

~Sarah

Breakfast - Pumpkin Sausage Patties served with a side of roasted potatoes.

Snack - A delicious Honeycrisp apple – is there anything better?!

Lunch - A warm bowl of Chickpea Stew.

Snack - A cup of hot Spiced Cider and an Apple Cinnamon Donut.

Dinner - A bowl of Creamy Carrot, Cauliflower and Ginger Soup and a warm Autumn Pumplings for dessert!

The Naked Kitchen Meal Plans

By the time the end of January rolls around I am so ready for Spring. The cold, rainy (or snowy depending on where you live), dark days really get to me. I like to brighten things up a little with a day of light and fresh meals that are fun and energizing. Go ahead, let it rain (or snow). I can feel Spring on it’s way.

Pledge to go Veg Meal Plan #4

Sep 27 2012 by | Comments (0)

My husband made the decision to go entirely plant based by himself.  He did the research and came to the same conclusion I did – it’s healthier, better for the environment and the best commitment you can make to providing your body with the best that nature has to offer.  However, he was skeptical of what he was going to be able to eat, especially being a meat and potatoes kind of guy.  So here is his meat and potatoes guy approved meal plan! Enjoy!

BreakfastPumpkin Sausage Patties with a side of Naked Hash Browns

Snack – a handful of Smokey Bacon-y Almonds

LunchFiery Mexican Soup and a side of Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Focaccia Mini Buns

Favorite Freezer Friendly Meals

There are days, sometimes weeks, where I do not feel like cooking anything!  I admit I am occasionally guilty of plopping down bowls of cereal for dinner. It’s not something that I get away with all that often, so  I learned early on that when I take the time to cook it’s important to make the most out of it.  If I’m planning on making a meal that I know freezes well you can bet that I make a double or even triple batch all at one time and freeze the leftovers for those busy or plain lazy days that I have.  While not every recipe will freeze well, I do have a go to list that I like to work off of.  Here’s my top 20 “Freezer Friendly” meals that are perfect for your busy or lazy days!
