Need some meal and workout ideas? Here is my food and fitness week in review for the week of August 20th through August 26th 2018.  Be sure to read previous Food and Fitness Week in Review’s here and tell me in the comments below your favorite meal or workout from the week!

Hello there!  Us teachers have headed back to school here in southern MD this week.  That means after this Week in Review dinners will be quick and easy meals or something I prep ahead of time to save time after school.  And as Summer comes to an end we’re trying to think of all the meals we can grill or smoke while the weather is still nice out.

Weekly Menu Recap:

Monday: Greek Turkey Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles
Tuesday: Fall Harvest Salad Bowls

Fall Harvest Salad

Wednesday: Blackened Salmon with Roasted Vegetables
Thursday: Chicken Apple Sausage, Brussels, and Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls

Apple Chicken Sausage, Sweet Potatoes, and brussels sprouts bowls
Friday: Ground Beef Bolognese from the freezer
Saturday: Appetizers out at Gillighans Pier
Sunday: Paleo Seasoned BBQ Chicken on the Traeger with Roasted Vegetables

And desserts were Flourless Oatmeal Raisin Banana Cookies and my Chocolate Chip Cookies over the weekend.

Oatmeal Raisin Banana Cookies

The best chocolate chip cookie recipe. Soft, chewy, and made with a secret ingredient.

Thursday: Took a one hour Yoga class and took a 2 mile walk
