Here we go again, another Monday. Another shot at a week of well planned eating. I feel the need to confess that although I come up with these plans weekly, I consider it a success if we have 80% compliance. For example, last week? I cooked all the things on the plan, but the order got switched, one cooking night became a takeout night and so on….but, I ate all the healthy breakfasts and packed good lunches for the kids all week, so I’m giving myself a gold star. Really, I am. I’m putting a gold star on last week in my planner (yeah, I use a paper planner, it’s so 1998 of me). I even have a little sticker on it each week where I write the dinner for that night. I can’t help it, I like fun pens, colorful stickers and paper. Every time I try to go solely electronic it doesn’t work for me!
Some standbys this week. I have been in the mood for yogurt, so parfaits again – this time with strawberries, raspberries and blackberries along with honey and almonds. I also have some burritos in the freezer to pull out on the other days. And on the weekend, my fave, avocado toast with eggs.
I made these lentil bowls for the week. I will add the avocado, egg and cholula right before eating.
Monday – Soy Ginger Pork Roast (Crock Pot/Slow Cooker), brown rice and green beans.
Tuesday – leftover Slow Cooker Italian Beef turned into sandwiches with peppers and provolone, with a veggie tray on the side.
Wednesday – Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas.
Friday – Takeout/out or leftovers.
Saturday – We have a football game at 4, plus it’s a monthly extended family dinner, so for ease of prep and cooking it will be a make your own taco bar! I’ll do ground beef and Crockpot Chicken For Tacos, Taco Salads, Nachos and more! and we will have tortillas, chips, salsas etc. to top it all with!
Sunday – Takeout/out or leftovers.
