I am so happy I started doing these meal plans again, as it’s really inspired me to eat better, and really take charge of my health (again).
Remember last year when my husband and I started our 30 Days of Real Food challenge? If not, you can read all about it starting HERE. Anyway, we did so good at sticking with only wholesome, non GMO, non processed, natural ingredient foods, and for more than just those 30 days. But sometime between my husband starting a new job on 3rd shift, moving to a new home, and dealing with on going health problems, we really did a backwards slide.
I believe wholeheartedly that food is the #1 key to being healthy, and I’m not talking about fad diets. The chemicals that our convenience foods, and even some that are marketed as “healthy”, are laden with, are the leading causes in diabetes, obesity, auto immune diseases and a whole slew of other health problems. I really could go on and on and on. And on some more. But I’ll spare you…for now. Just know that I am making a very conscious effort to really pay attention to what I am putting in my body, as my current and future health depends on it.
Ok, and I’m back off my soapbox now.
Here’s our meal plan for the week:
1/2 Grapefruit and 1 slice whole wheat toast with peanut butter
Greek yogurt with berries and granola
Granola and berries in organic whole milk
Salad with grilled chicken
Leftovers from dinner
Whole wheat crackers with organic cheese

Tuesday--Spaghetti with whole wheat pasta and a salad
Wednesday—Italian beef on whole wheat hoagies
Thursday–Leftover pulled pork frozen from a few weeks ago
Friday–Leftovers, or a grilled chicken salad
Saturday—Baked chicken and vegetables
