Menu Plan Monday

Sunday, February 15, 2015


Today I am recovering from my chocolate coma! I am not going to lie, I survived on chocolate and sweets yesterday. Today I woke up feeling nauseous. I may have gone overboard? #justkeepinitreal

The good thing is that today, I can't even look at chocolate or sweets so I am right back on track!

Now it is school vacation week and we have some fun things planned. We are going to go snow tubing at a fun place nearby that has a huge hill and a ski lift type thing for you and your tube  to get back up the hill. We are going with friends and it should be a blast. We have ice skating or snowshoeing, a birthday party and some playdates, also on the agenda! Should be a fun week!

I am still going to plan, to a certain point so that way I know what the plan is, but the chances of things changing this week are pretty good!


Breakfast Options
  1. Egg White Omelet with mushrooms, onion and cheese, side of strawberries or half english muffin.
  2. Bran cereal and granola mix with almond milk and a side of fruit (this will likely be my breakfast most days, I ate it a bunch last week and loved it!)
  3. Paleo Pumpkin Muffins with tea and fruit

Lunch Options
  1. Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper soup and half turkey wrap or sandwich on the side. 
  2. Buffalo Garlic Chicken Medley
  3. Leftover Turkey Dinner wraps (see below)
Dinner Options
  1. Chicken Fajitas... We ended up not having them this past week.  
  2. Homemade Pizza
  3. Pork Tenderloin from the freezer served with veggies and a salad.
  4. Turkey, rice and veggie
  5. Turkey Dinner wraps (Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce!) served with cut up veggies.
  6. Breakfast for dinner
  7. Eating out for dinner one night. 
Snack Options
  1. Veggies and Hummus
  2. Protein shake with a handful of almonds for on the go
  3. Greek yogurt with honey and granola
  4. Popcorn
  5. Clementine and cashews
Now I need to make my grocery list and head off to the store. I realized that if I don't go today, I have to bring 2 kids with me this week, so I am making the time today, for sure! :) 

As always, I am linking up with the Laura's and Jill!

Tomorrow, come back for Show and Tell Tuesday, when I tell all about Mike and I's LOVE story!

Have a great Monday!

    1. Enjoy the few days! I wish we didn't have a full week in February and had it later in the spring so that we could enjoy nice weather!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Laura! I wish we waited until the weather was a little nicer to have a break, but we do a week in February and a week in April. I prefer the April break, although we have nice plans this week, so it should be good!

    1. We are pretty scheduled with activities for the kids and stuff, we can usually predict most nights. But I started just planning out the meals and not the days, that way I can pick and choose what will work for that day!
