Menu Planning

I found out that I love having a menu plan. It is freeing! Tasty, healthy meals really minister.

Our breakfast plan is still working well. It is nice to just get up in the morning and see what is for breakfast -- and it ain't Fruit Loops! LOL! I haven't gotten around to planning lunch, but am open to it. Just don't have the time at the moment. Here is what is our family is eating this week:

Breakfast Menu
Monday: Whole grain fruit muffins or fruit bread (I made a double batch last time, so this week I simply pulled them out and unthawed), cheese, fresh fruit

Tuesday: Fruit Smoothie, hard-boiled eggs, wheat toast

Wednesday: Oatmeal with a touch of natural maple syrup, Protein bar, fresh fruit

Thursday: Self-serve

Friday: Cheesy spinach egg scramble or fried eggs, wheat toast or bread, fresh fruit

Dinner Menu
( I am using Saving Dinner: Low Carb - Winter Menu #6):

Monday: Pan-Seared Fish with Lemon-Sage Butter

Tuesday: Carolina Crock Pork

Wednesday: Skillet Chicken Mediterranean

Thursday: Polka-Dot Meat Loaf

Friday: Thai Shrimp on Red and Green Cabbage

Week-end: Cube Steaks with Rich, Sweet Onion Gravy

I love using Saving Dinner. Sad to say... I am not too good at using it all the time though. :o(

I have also signed up for the Meal Mailer a couple times. Have you done that yet?

The thing I enjoy about using either of those listed is that when I check out at the grocery store, I feel like I am purchasing good quality HEALTHY meals for my family.

Now why don't I use that book more often????

Thanks for the reminder. :o)

Hi Tami... looks like another great menu! I only made a menu for dinner this week.... we are sticking to what we have done before...also trying to stay away from cereal....

I just bought some flax from costco and I have been adding it to my yougurt and smoothies too.

Still need to wirk on low fat protiens in our diet.... but that will come.

Have a great week.... Lisa~
