Healthy Meals Planning for this week(19)

Anita posted on Facebook about a new magazine called CLEAN EATING. This magazine is AWESOME!!

I have decided to try their FREE downloadable 7-day meal plan. I have made a few adjustments based on what I have available like using regular natural peanut butter instead of almond butter, etc. I also went through and made a grocery list of the items I don’t currently have so would be ready for the week.

Here is the link to the 7day_mealplan

This week is a special week in our household. It is our dear son’s birthday and we have family in town. It is going to be a great week!

Because of this, my meal plan this week is a bit different. Here are this week’s healthy meal ideas:

MONDAY- Mexican Night! Taco bar with chicken, hard and soft tacos, lettuce, cheese, onion, tomato, rice, black beans, sour cream

TUESDAY- Grilled steak, baked potatoes, green salad

WEDNESDAY- grilled salmon (Gorton’s that I got on sale at Publix), long grain and wild rice, steamed broccoli

THURSDAY- birthday dinner out!

FRIDAY- hamburgers on the grill, corn on the cob, fruit salad

BREAKFASTS: scrambled eggs and whole grain bagels, whole grain waffles or Cascadian Farms Organic cereal

LUNCHES: leftovers, turkey sandwiches with pretzels and fruit or strawberries and yogurt (for me!!)

Sorry for the boring menu this week. It’s a little crazy around here and there isn’t much time for cooking!
