Weekly Menu

zucchini spaghetti

I really like these thoughts on health integrity here and here.  Basically, "own" your choices; accept responsibility.  If you want motivation and encouragement, read both of those articles.

By the way, these chicken nuggets were awesome.  It may be a very long time before I make them again, because I think frying things is a huge pain, but they were so good!

Breakfasts:
scones
eggs
bacon
fruit
coffee w/ coconut milk

Lunches:
honeyed glazed chicken bites , easy paleo BBQ sauce - I finally posted it!
(no bacon because my kids don't like it wrapped like that)
tuna & avocado
celery & almond butter
fruit

School snacks: organic popcorn, unsweetened applesauce

My kids have been loving an after school snack lately of frozen blueberries, raspberries, some plain homemade yogurt from the farm, and a drizzle of honey.

Dinners:
Monday - zucchini spaghetti, meaty tomato sauce, salad, dressing
Tuesday - balsamic roast beef, simple roasted asparagus, salad
Wednesday - leftovers
Thursday - tropical chicken burgers (new recipe), pineapple, sweet potato fries
Friday - leftovers
Saturday - taco salad
Sunday - leftovers

I like to make a dessert on the weekends... this week's selection is gluten free peanut butter cookies.  It will be either these or these (with reduced sugar).  I would of course prefer the paleo option of almond butter or sun butter, but I only went to Aldi and Price Chopper, so am making do with peanut butter.  I'll be at Costco later in the week and get almond butter then.  Obviously if I eat these I am not being hardcore, but I am doing much better with my choices, and I feel good about it.

Have a great week!
