Since I began my sodium-restricted diet (I share why HERE), I’ve been winging my meal planning. Learning how to eat low-sodium hasn’t been easy. It’s coming up on three months now, so I feel like I am finally getting the hang of it.
Cooking at home was only challenging for the first several weeks. Eating out is still rough, though I feel like I’m gaining more confidence.
One of my goals for the blog is share my weekly menu with you. By sharing what we are having, and provide the recipes it might make your own weekly meal planning easier.
This Week’s Meal Plan
Monday: Bison Rib Eye Steaks with Sliced Tomatoes and Smashed Red Potatoes. I have been wanting to try Bison steaks! I’ll post in the comments how they turn out.
Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas with Guacamole and Pinto Beans. This is such an easy meal. The fajitas will be grilled, I am making the guacamole from scratch, and I lucked out in finding no-salt beans. My secret ingredient for guacamole – wait for it – is Montreal Steak Seasoning and fresh lime juice.
Wednesday: Dinner out.
Thursday: Italian Meatball Casserole and Mixed Salad. This is a low-carb dish I found a while back. I’m going to make in lower-sodium.
Friday: Fish Tacos with Black Beans and Roasted Corn. Since my meals are low in sodium, I have been relying on roasting to beef up the taste of my meals. We have some leftover corn that I will have roasted on the grill, then toss with lime juice, cilantro, and black beans as a side dish. The fish will be blackened on the grill. I use shredded cabbage and green salsa on top.
Saturday: Chicken Thighs with Lime-Cilantro Rice and Green Beans. My husband made awesome grilled chicken for a family barbecue here last weekend. I am going to have him grill up more of it.
Sunday: Pork Chops with Roasted Red Potatoes and Ranch Salad. Costco was having a sale on pork chops last weekend, so this will be on the menu in the next several weeks. These are really thick pork chops. I am thinking of having my husband sear the chops on the grill, then I’ll finish them off in the steam oven. I might make an apple or peach relish to go on top.
Let me know what you think of this new blog series I’m planning!
