Weekly Menu

It's that most wonderful time.  I have planned my weekly menu.  Last week included some wonderful meals at some restaurants.  Two of them left me so full.  This year meals have been very healthy and packed with veggies.  At most I think the calories are about 400 per meal, many are less than 400.  Monday night I bet I ate about 1500 for dinner.  That was quite a shock to my body.  Don't get me wrong it was a fabulous feast but not something I want to do again for a very long time.  
This week I have included a few more meat meals.  Still vegetarian for most days.  Eating plant based has been great.  Have a look over my meals and certainly see if any of them look like something you want to add to your menu.

Monday  Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowl, simple salad

Thursday Avocado White Bean Wrap, Chips and Fruit

Saturday Breakfast  Multigrain Waffles, Vanilla Cream and Blueberries

Lunch  Chickpea Stew, Fruit
Dinner Pot Roast with Risotto Cakes

Weekly menu

I had another wonderful week of food.  Cooking at home is really one of my favorite things.  Doing that saves money, improves health and makes me happy.  What more could you want?  Well this week things are different.  I have dinner with coworkers and a couple of dinners with family this week.  We are going to a local brewery on Valentine's Day for a fun 6 course dinner.  Saturday we are having dinner at a friends house.  Compared to my normal week this is really a quite busy week. I have been sewing a lot quite recently and I do hope to get my camera back out and start showing off my work.

Last week favorites are the Veggie Lasagna and the Eggnog French Toast

Lunch Leftovers
Dinner Pad Thai

Monday Dinner with Co-workers

Wednesday Dinner Out

Friday Date Night (make cheese ball)

Breakfast Breakfast Taco
Lunch  Quinoa Cauliflower Bowl (make rice for lunch on Sunday)
Dinner Cheese Ball

Dinner Beef and Broccoli with brown rice

Recipes for the week of Feb 3

It is suppose to be another cold, snowy week.  Weather reports on snow totals are all over the place, anywhere from 6 to 30 inches.  Let's mix things up this week.  Some day pretend it's warm and have tropical like meals, other days it's soup to keep us warm and one day I'll spice things up.

Last week I loved the meals.  January was very plant based.  I love that change in the way we eat.  Some days I do need to think about serving us more.  I think I should still keep the 3 serving per meal in mind.  It's easy to mix together veggies and grain and feel it is a complete meal.  Some days that works great, other day I am left feeling like something was missing.  We have saved money and while changes in health are hard to see I do feel great.

Monday  Teriyaki Chickpeas with steamed snow peas.

Thursday Date Night


Breakfast  Overnight Oats
