Weekly Menu


After a gloriously rejuvenating spring break, last week was a bit rough, parts were down right brutal.  Nothing catastrophic, just some stress, compounded by eating poorly/feeling sick, all due to my own bad choices.  It was just one of those nonstop weeks, and I let the busy-ness and responsibilities dictate unrelated decisions.  The memory of how these kind of weeks make me feel and act serve as a reminder to me to strive to constantly evaluate my choices, so that I don't live by impulse, just surviving.  Ugh.  Glad it is over, I want to start new this week.  I know I have some comments here on the blog that I want to reply to, and I hope to get to them soon.

I must have planned well last week.  We went 7 full days between trips to the store... that is odd!  Yesterday I hit up Aldi and Costco.  I spent $158 and I feel like I got a lot of food (especially protein), so that is good.



Breakfasts:
salmon, sweet potatoes
breakfast bread
banana blueberry egg muffins
eggs, turkey sausage
smoothies
coffee w/ coconut milk

Lunches:
egg, tuna, avocado salad lettuce wraps
turkey roll-ups
mini chicken sausages (new at Costco)
dinner leftovers
carrots or sweet potato chips
apples

Dinners:
Sunday - garlic pulled pork, vinagrette coleslaw
Monday - leftovers
Tuesday - deconstructed gyro salad (beef seasoning)
Wednesday - zucchini noodles with meaty tomato sauce
Thursday - meatloaf, roasted brussels sprouts
Friday - chocolate chili, avocados
Saturday - kitchen sink salad aka leftovers aka clean out the fridge

Dessert:
fresh pineapple

Notice anything?  No chicken dinners this week!  I was feeling like eating red meat.
I have yet to make the carrot cake... I promise today or tomorrow, Michele and Tracy! :)
I really need to organize my pin boards a little better... then maybe I will share them...?

OK, that's it for now.  Happy Easter!
