Happy President’s Day everyone! And happy meal prep Monday 🙂 Here’s my meal prep from last week…it was really easy and also really delicious so I’m happy with it. I’ve been experimenting with brussels sprouts quite a bit lately. For someone who has always hated brussels sprouts, I feel like I’ve been doing good. Adding bacon to them may have something to do with the fact that I’ve been enjoying them. Maybe.
I may even have to dedicate a whole post to this side dish…I really am proud of this creation. Plus, I get to have my veggies and complex carbs aaaand some protein all baked on one tray. Add some aluminum foil and that means little to no cleanup after taking them out of the oven. My favorite kind of dish 🙂
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes with Turkey Bacon

Spicy Mustard Salmon with Veggies and Rice

- 1/4 cup spicy mustard
- 3/4 cup Della brown rice
- 4 cups Safeway Farms Broccoli Stir Fry vegetables
- Directions: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake salmon at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until it flakes easily. Cook brown rice and steam veggies according to package directions.
I had this raspberry honey mustard left over from a Christmas stocking stuffer and wanted to use it up on something other than pretzels. It has a nice spiciness to it but is balanced with the sweetness of honey and raspberry. I just kind of slathered it on top of the salmon. But I tried to keep it away from the edges a little bit so it wouldn’t run off too much! Dijon mustard would work really well for this too. Something with a little kick, and maybe add a bit of honey or brown sugar in for that touch of sweetness.
