Back to the Menu

For the last several months I have not been planning a menu and now I have a fridge full of odd item and I have not been eating healthy. While planning a menu takes some time, thought and effort over time it pays off with the time saved in planning each day and health and financial benefits.

This week the plan is:

Berries and oatmeal or yogurt for breakfast with tea

Lunch (they will repeat)
Tuna on wheat with peas and mango
turkey sausage on wheat roll and cauliflower and apples
poached egg on toast with turkey bacon and cucumbers

Chicken flautas with salsa verde, avocado and salad
Beef soup with crackers and some raw veggies
The beef, potatoes and carrots from the beef soup
flank steak with mashed potatoes and cauliflower and tomatoes for color
whole wheat pasta with marinara and salad with avocado

there will be plenty of left overs to fill in the rest of the week
