Today, I prepared my breakfasts and lunches for the week. I only prepared four meals, because I plan to eat out one day. I typically work from home, but every now and then I have to go into the office for a week or two. I commute 60 miles to the office, so I like to prepare my meals ahead of time to maximize my time at home (i.e. to sleep in longer). I eat my breakfast in my car, so it has to be something easy and mess-free. Today I prepared these Cinnamon Apple Muffins (gluten free!!!). I will make myself a latte in the morning, grab a banana and a muffin, and hit the road.
For lunch this week, I will have a Mason Jar Salad and a Pumpkin Chia Muffin. I saw salads in mason jars on Pinterest and thought I would give this a try. Each jar is the same… so I hope I don’t get sick of this salad by Thursday. The hard boiled egg will be added later.
When that 3:00pm slump hits, I plan to fuel up with two gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies and a cup of coffee.
The recipe for the Pumpkin Chia Muffins are available at http://paleomg.com/sweet-potato-chai-muffins/ Let the muffins rest over night before you eat them, so the flavors can infuse together.
The recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookies are available at http://www.elanaspantry.com/chocolate-chip-cookies/. I used half a cup of grapeseed oil in lieu of the butter.
These recipes are all gluten free. Enjoy!
