It’s been awhile since I’ve made a meal plan and stuck to it. Summer really threw me off. It’s strange that the more time I have on my hands, the less likely I am to stick to a plan. 🙂
However for this week, my menu is made, my groceries are purchased and my ingredients are prepped! Here’s the plan:
Today: Barbacoa meatballs with homemade guacamole. I add chunky salsa to my guacamole so I didn’t follow the plan from the link. The meal was good but my husband said he could taste the cinnamon and would prefer the dish without it. I didn’t mind it but will leave it out for him next time. 😉
Monday: Chicken and vegetable lo mein from ’30 Day Intro to Paleo’ recipe book. I couldn’t find this one online and I purchased the e-book so I guess I can’t share the actual recipe.
Tuesday: Deep dish zucchini pizza pie. This will be the first time I’ve tried this type of crust but I’ve really enjoyed zucchini as a pasta substitute in lasagna so I’m hoping this will go well too. For my layers I plan to use pizza sauce, smoked provolone, turkey pepperoni, black olives, and diced onions.
Wednesday: frozen junky food for the kids (pizza, nuggets, biscuits, etc.) and leftovers for me.
Thursday: Bacon mushroom honey Dijon chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans
Friday: Crockpot beef and broccoli over rice
I also have bell peppers, cucumbers, celery, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, grapes, bananas, clementine oranges, and ranch dips for snacks and sides. I’m ready for a healthy and energized week. Gotta fuel the engine properly to run on all cylinders. Let’s rock this!
