Menu Plan Monday

I haven't participated in Menu Plan Monday for a while because eating here has been kind of strange...but see our week below!

Monday: Italian Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes (from Deceptively Delicious)
Tuesday: Chicken salad sandwhiches, yogurt with flaxseed or wheat germ
Wednesday: Mac n Beef Casserole, brownies with spinach puree for dessert!
Thursday: Buttered Noodles (with yellow squash and chicken puree for Reagan and just regular chicken for mommy and daddy) and green beans
Friday: Burgers with cauliflower or carrot puree and sweet potato 'fries'
Saturday: Chicken Nuggets with semi-steamed vegetables and yogurt dip
Sunday: Beef stew with corn muffins/whole wheat rolls

Breakfasts: Baked Egg Puffs (from Deceptively Delicious)
Lunches: Deviled eggs, sandwhiches, Pita Pizzas, fruits and vegetables, salads
Snacks: Pretzel fruit kabobs, fruit, yogurt pops, carrot and zucchini muffins

**Special Notes:

I am incorporating NutriSystem meals into my daily eating (these are not included above since I'm using them sporadically due to the high sodium content), to keep my caloric intake between 1200-1600 calories a day. By doing this, it's my hope to lose approximately 2 lbs a week!

Also, next week I plan to post a menu for the month! It's my hope by doing this that I'll significantly cut down on grocery trips and hopefully only go back for fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and maybe milk..this is always my goal, and I never quite attain it, but I keep plugging away at it!

  1. Great plan! Can't wait to see the full month. That is a lot of work, but once a month shopping is a great way to save.
