Organic Menu Weeks 7-9: Micronutrient Meals

It’s been a while since I last posted anything here. Many of my meals consisted of some of my previous posts such as the ever delicious chicken-lime soup that I make at least once a week. I’ve added a few new items to my menu of meals and here they are!

Pot Roast!

Pot roast is one of those ultimate comfort foods but when it is completely organic, it’s twice as good for you. I made mine in a slower cooker. I cut 1 roast into chunks and let cook on low overnight. I added salt, pepper, 1 bay leaf, 1 whole onion, and approx. 3-4 garlic cloves to the water before cooking. In all I’d say it cooked about 8 hours. 2 hours before I turned off the crock pot I added the potato and an hour before I turned off the crock pot I added the carrot. I recommend tasting the water before adding the carrot to make sure it is still full of flavor because the potato starts to absorb a lot of it.

Orange Salmon and Spinach

This dish was one of my own creations and I think if I had to do it over again I would make it more citrusy by adding the juice of an orange rather than just orange wedges. I cooked the salmon fillets in a skillet on medium heat with a tablespoon of olive oil and added 1/2 an onion, salt & pepper to taste, and 1 orange. For the spinach, I cooked it in a pot with a tab of butter and salt & pepper to taste. The dish looks fancy but it was super easy to make ad pretty quick.

Chicken Burrito in cream sauce

This dish was delicious and I put my burrito on a bed of fresh spinach leaves. I cooked the chicken in a savory cream sauce. I can’t remember what I put in it but I do know I added onion, salt & pepper, Horizon’s Organic heavy cream, paprika, and cayenne. The tortilla was organic but doesn’t go with the actual Micronutrient meal plan.

Blueberry & Banana Waffles

waffles

These were made with Arrowhead Mills organic buckwheat pancake & waffle mix Mills . Not entirely Micronutrient friendly because I think it has flour in it but these came out great and my daughters gobbled them up. Anyone with toddlers know that it’s hard to get them to eat and they can be pick eaters. I used 1 cup frozen organic blueberries and1 banana that I smashed in the batter before cooking. I used the package directions to make about 6 waffles.
