Order / Notes

  • There are two 30 minute meals which both could provide leftovers if doubled. I suggest planning those meals for days when you may be rushed

  • I like to space out similar meats or types of food so I suggest spacing out the seafood and soups

  • Optional: Cut the kale into small pieces for the sushi bowl and make crispy chips in the oven or airfryer for a texture similar to seaweed paper used with sushi
