Back to School Cooking

I’m participating in the MTBoS blog challenge called Blaugust. If you want to see a full list of the bloggers participating in Blaugust, go here. My goal is to blog once per week for the month of August, then to continue blogging weekly throughout the school year. (ha ha based on the number of times I’ve started this we’ll see how it goes!

I really enjoy the recipes that Audrey at Math by the Mountain shares. I’ve add quite a few of the recipes shes shared to my recipe rotation.  Check out her meal prep ideas here.   So, I thought I’d share a few of mine because you know, school for me started August 6 (students show up August 15) and I ain’t got time to cook!

I’ve started a B(Basic) A(Alkaline) LI(low-insulin) diet (Bali) this summer. Have to say I’ve never felt better and I’m still eating MOST of what I like with a few ingredient swaps. One thing I’ve gotten WAY better at is prepping once a week – I did this all summer (to develop a habit) because I knew that once school started, I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Spicy Avocado Dressing

I got to try this amazing Spicy Avocado Dressing recently.  It IS a little thick so I add a little extra olive oil to make it more like salad dressing. Thick or thin, it is my new favorite dressing (or dip). We’re going to have a pot luck at school the day before students arrive,  I’m bringing this!




Budget Savvy Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning has a permanent place on my stove because it gets used SOOooo often.






Garlic Butter Steak Bites from The Kitchn. Okay, this is ONE meal I will spend time making after school. It IS quick and easy as promised in the recipe. Pair it with some roasted smashed new potatoes (I like purple potatoes) — YUM! I don’t mind eating this the next day.




Low Carb Keto Skillet Chicken with Bacon Spinach Feta Cream Sauce


Last one. Creamy Bacon Feta Spinach Chicken From All Day I Dream About Food. I don’t make this on the stove. I put it in the crock pop with some rice.  Add the spinach a few minutes before you eat. I take left overs to school for lunch the next day.
