Meal Plan Monday

Last week gave me the flexibility and planning ahead I need to have a successful eating week.  This week, I’m going to continue on with the same.

Breakfast options ~ Steel Cut Oats, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Kashi Cereal w/ Almond Milk, or ½ Grapefruit with Whole Wheat Toast & Almond Butter

Snack Options ~ Pumpkin seeds, Almonds, Larabars, Apple Slices, Oranges, Greek Yogurt, Pecans, grapes, dried cranberries or other dried fruit

Lunch options ~ Salads with spinach as a base and the world is my oyster from there – Cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, pomegranate, eggs, mozzarella, chickpeas, mushrooms, etc; sandwiches on Flat out Bread wraps with Boars head lunch meats, leftovers from the previous nights dinner – All good options

Dinner ~

Monday – Lamb Shoulder roasted with Garlic & Rosemary,  mashed cauliflower, spinach salad

Tuesday – Brinner – Veggie omelets (YUM!) and fresh fruit

Wednesday – FIFI – (i.e. Find it Fix it – an idea I’m stealing borrowing from the wonderful Heather over at Not A DIY Life.  This is a school night, so hubby’s on his own.  I’ll pack a sandwich or salad or stop at SUBWAY!)

Thursday – Farmer’s Market Stir Fry with quinoa instead of Brown Rice and Chef’s Requested Flat Iron Steaks

Friday – Chicken “Pot Pies” with roasted chicken, found this healthier version I’m looking forward to trying – YES this was on last week’s meal plan, but things got shuffled and I STILL haven’t tried it!

Sat – Turkey Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries, & Fruit Mix (making a fruit salad with whatever fruit is leftover from the week)

Sunday – Subway Sunday – This has become a tradition that I enjoy – it tends to go against the grain of a traditional “Sunday Dinner” but we get to focus on closing out our week with quality time instead of me slaving away in the kitchen. (And, by getting a ‘footlong’ I can have ½ for dinner and the other ½ for Monday’s Lunch) – Win/ Win!

What are your plans for this week?



  1. I drink almond milk, too. I am limiting my dairy and feeling much better since changing over. Your meals sound fabulous. Keep up the good work, Shelley!

  2. Your menu looks great! I’m LOL’ing at you “borrowing” the FIFI! Gives Mama a night off. 🙂 Also love the idea of getting a footlong from Subway and saving half for the next day.

  3. Patricia Eales says

    Your plan sounds great! How do you like the almond milk? I’ve heard it’s a better choice than the soy milk. I bought some, but haven’t tried it yet 🙁 silly me

    My plans are set – sticking to the menu set out in my nutrition plan. Looks like there are some yummy new things to try this week.

    Found a new favorite snack – 1/4 cup plan Astro yogurt, 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, and 1/4 granola, mixed all together. Yum!

    Love the new title of your blog. Aren’t we all a little off kilter sometimes? LOL

    Have a fabulous week, and keep up the great work!
