As I reach the home stretch of my college years, I am striving to stay healthy and fueled with my weekly menus. My final weeks of college will be filled with planning events, wrapping up research projects, and closing out my time at Meredith. So, I want to ensure that my body is fed well and remains healthy and fueled through it all, like with this week’s menu.
Fuel the Day Treat
To fuel my days, I will be enjoying brunch/lunch with avocado toast topped with sliced tomatoes and mozzarella or a fried egg.
To kick off the week, I am so excited to *FINALLY* be trying out air fryer salmon in my own kitchen! I plan to simply season it with some Himalayan salt and serve it with roasted broccoli and my favorite side dish – green bean casserole.
I have always been a lover of pizza!!! So, I will be putting my favorite dish to the test with a twist by serving a salami and pepperoni pizza on garlic naan. Garlic naan has become a favorite of mine, since I have fallen in love with the Indian food here in Raleigh! I will be serving my garlic naan pizza’s with my sautéed kale.
Being the seafood lover that I am, I am also super excited to try out a new tilapia recipe from Taste of Home – Red Pepper & Parmesan Tilapia. I will be serving this tilapia with some roasted sweet peppers.
Ever since I was a little girl, like pizza, I have also had an obsession with pesto pasta. So, I will be enjoying this pasta favorite of mine in the form of gnocchi and adding some cherry tomatoes along with chopped mozzarella into the mix. On the side, I am going enjoy my Kale Caesar salad.
With my weeks getting busier than ever before during my Senior year of college, taking care of myself is more important than ever before.
