Monday: Greek-Impressed Chopped Salad with Baked Rooster
This chopped salad was what recent and nutrient-dense goals are fabricated from and the one motive it occurred was as a result of I meal deliberate. Should you assume I’d’ve taken the time to cut up all that stuff on the finish of the day when issues really feel chaotic, you’re sorely mistaken! As a substitute I chopped up all of the veggies after I picked up Ryder from preschool and he and Rhett had been entertaining one another within the early afternoon. Having all of the veggies prepared made the remainder of the meal a breeze! Within the salad: Chopped tomatoes, olives, cucumber, crimson bell pepper, artichokes, recent parsley, black-eyed peas (random, I do know) and feta cheese. I tossed all of it with bottled balsamic dressing we had within the fridge and sliced rooster breasts. (I marinated the rooster breasts in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, rosemary, oregano and garlic powder and baked them at 350-degrees till they had been cooked by way of.) Additionally, I titled this meal Greek-inspired chopped salad as a result of that’s what it appeared wish to me however I actually do not know what it ought to be referred to as as a result of the substances had been far and wide. It was a winner although!

I then added a frozen Asian quinoa combine I purchased from Publix that included brown rice, bell pepper, peas and squash. Gotta love a super-easy dinner!
