Meal Plan Monday

It’s been a crazy Monday.  I think this is the first time we’ve been home for more than 30 minutes since we left for school this morning at 8:45.  Mondays are like that for us though.  But, it’s now 4:15 and I’m so ready for bed.  Only 3 hours and 45 minutes until my mini’s bedtime…but who’s counting.

Okay, let’s get to it.  This week’s meals aren’t very creative…but when it’s just me and my mini eating I don’t have the energy to be creative in the kitchen or make elaborate meals.  It’s all about what’s fast and easy.  So, here you go.

Breakfasts: Shakeology Shake, of course.  

Snacks: Fruit (I’ve been combining kiwi, mango and blackberries and then topping it with unsweetened shredded coconut–it’s so good!), veggies and hummus

Lunches: Random salads that I make up with whatever is int he fridge, or leftovers.  It’s that kind of uninspired week.

Dinners:

Monday: Leftovers from last night’s family dinner.  I made the Creamy Pasta from last week’s menu.  My mom is diabetic and is all about finding healthy ways to eat.  She has lost over 25 pounds since moving here a year ago (ISN’T THAT AMAZING?!).  So I wanted to make something that seemed like it was extravagant and a “cheat” meal, but it was whole wheat pasta, tons of veggies, and a sauce that was greek yogurt based.  She LOVED it and so did my dad.  That’s a win!

Tuesday: Bruschetta Chicken zoodle bowls.  I love this because it takes about 30 minutes to throw together.  And its so yummy!


Wednesday: Thai Basil chicken over Cauliflower Rice.  Tuesday and Wednesday’s dinner brought to you by the giant bunch of basil I bought last week that I don’t want to go to waste!

Thursday: Leftovers 

Friday: Honey Garlic Pork chops and salad

Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday: Family dinner at my parent’s house.  

I’ve got a new challenge group starting today so my eating has to be on point.  We are having a little competition where clean eats and exercise gets us points for our team.  As the team coach I should probably lead by example…right?  Meals may not be that exciting and inventive this week, but they are clean!
