Meal Planning 3/19/2012


This is week 12 on creating a meal plan for the week.   I feel like I’m getting in a rut on meal planning and funny thing is Gina from MoneyWiseMoms just wrote a post about being in a meal planning rut.  It is so nice to read that I’m not the only one!

Monday: Breakfast: Greek Yogurt and fruit Lunch leftovers Mexican casserole Dinner:Grilled tomatoes and grilled Pork roast. Yum!

Tuesday:Breakfast Cereal and fruit Lunch PB&J and fruit   Dinner: Broccoli casserole with Salad

Wednesday:  Breakfast Oatmeal Lunch  Dinner: Sardine salad (like tuna salad just with Sardines.  If you think I’m crazy check out how good Sardines are for you!)

Sardines: Dr. Bowden calls them “health food in a can.” They are high in omega-3’s, contain virtually no mercury and are loaded with calcium. They also contain iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese as well as a full complement of B vitamins.
How to eat: Choose sardines packed in olive or sardine oil. Eat plain, mixed with salad, on toast, or mashed with dijon mustard and onions as a spread.

Thursday: Breakfast Cereal and fruit Lunch PB&J and greek yogurt Dinner: Mac & cheese and Peas

Friday: Breakfast Cereal Lunch Fastfood treat  Dinner:Indian food (Trader joes) served over Basmati Rice

Saturday: Breakfast Eggs Lunch  leftovers Dinner: Takeout treat

Sunday: Breakfast Cereal Lunch Leftovers(Doodle’s swim class)  Dinner: Pasta or Pizza with Salad

What’s for dinner at your house tonight?
