Menu Plan Monday - 2013 Week 18
This week, I am embarking on a menu plan to help me eat better, in the hopes of losing a few pounds before our #JerseyLove Social Media for Social Good Retreat in June.
Let me start by saying that I have never been successful in following a "diet" menu. But this plan seems reasonable, and it also goes with my goal to "focus" on my family's eating habits and try to improve the variety and healthiness of what we eat.
All menu ideas (except for the pizza) were provided By Cristie over at The Right Hand Mom. Keep watch here, on Twitter and Facebook, so see how successful I am on incorporating things my kids will eat. It has always been my philosophy that I cook ONE MEAL - and everyone must eat a part of it - or something else that we already have on hand.
Here's what is on tap for this week:
Monday - Chicken Stew, Salad, Rolls
Tuesday - Black Bean Cakes with Guacamole
Wednesday - Double Broccoli Quinoa
Thursday - Chicken Cacciatore w Spaghetti Squash
Friday - Pizza Night with a Spinach & Bacon Salad
Saturday & Sunday - TBD
Where do you turn when you want to eat healthier? And how do you get your kids to come along for the ride?
