Meal Plan Monday

Hey everybody!  We’re Baaaaack!

We just got back from a week long trip to Austin to visit my brother and sister-in-law.  I have tons of pictures to post once a get a few extra minutes.

I’ve decided to start posting our weekly meal plan to help me get organized and to have some accountability to our quest for healthier choices.  Plus, you will get to read about some of our favorite foods as well as all the new recipes that I will be trying out.

This week is pretty simple, because the kids will be at Cousin Camp for half of the week and I don’t plan on planning meals for just the two of us.



Breakfast-Oatmeal and Go Lean Crunch Kashi Cereal (I love KathEats for great oatmeal ideas!)

Lunch-Turkey Sandwiches with cantaloupe and carrots

(I had a black bean burger crumbled over a side salad. Yum!) Morningstar Farm coupon

Dinner-Turkey Hot Dogs  and grilled corn


BreakfastQuaker Oatmeal Pancakes or Waffles (Now to look for a healthy syrup, is there such a thing?)

Lunch– Turkey or Ham sandwiches with fruits and veggies

Dinner–  Pizza for the kids and Tostados for the adults

Snacks– Yogurt with homemade granola & fruit

Homemade Granola from Becky Hammond

Heat in microwave:

1/2 c. honey

1/2 c. oil (we used Smart Balance)

1 t. vanilla

Pour over:

6 c. regular oats

1 c. raw sunflower seeds

1 c. wheat germ

1 c. nuts (we used sliced almonds)

1/2 c. coconut (we used unsweetened)

1 c. raisins

1/2 c. craisins, dried apricots, etc.

Bake for 1 hour at 300° stirring every 20 minutes.

Right now I’m trying to compile a list of healthy and easy foods for the family.   If you have any ideas, PLEASE let me know.

  1. I’d suggest these recipes:
    Easy and light turkey and rice –
    Lentil Joe’s –
    Homemade stuffed pasta –

    And you should definitely check out springpad’s weekly meal planner, it’s a great way to organize all of your menus and recipes (like this one, yum! and I think you’d really like it.

    We started on healthy stuff too. Good for us!

    Equal part brown sugar and water boiled on low about 30 minutes, add t. vanilla will make pancake syrup. Not the healthiest, but at least not corn syrup.

    Love you,

    Just glance in other people’s grocery carts. You will instantly see a connection between the foods people buy and their body size.
