Meal Plan for Week of 4-6-14

Hi folks! It’s time for my meal plan.  I plan out my meals for every day as it helps me spend my resources wisely.  (See previous plans by clicking this link)

Also, if you’re new here, I’d recommend reading this post and this post to understand why I eat what I eat.

If you see some repeats from recent meal plans it’s either 1) we really loved it and want it again or 2) I didn’t get to make it.  How is this possible if I’m sticking to my meal plan?  EASY! I always make enough for leftovers, and we have at least one or two meals a week that become leftovers ONLY.

Small disclaimer:  I’ve made many of these recipes, but not all! If you’d like to know which ones I find tried and true, just ask!

Sunday:

BREAKFAST: toast (from this soaked bread), scrambled eggs, sliced apples
LUNCH: pasta (family cheat meal!)*, homemade refried beans with guacamole
DINNER: cinnamon struessel grain-free muffins (PLEASE make sure you sub grass-fed butter or coconut oil, arrowroot for xantham, and rapadura or maple for granulated sugar!), smoothies with hidden spinach, nitrite-free hotdogs
EXTRAS: –
*This is my family’s “cheat” meal of the week.  I do not partake (hence the second option) because I can feel pretty awful after white pasta!

Monday:

BREAKFAST: paleo gingerbread pancakes + bacon
LUNCH: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (with this soaked bread), fresh fruit of choice
