Meal Plan for Week of 5-4-14

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 note on our veggie consumption:  we consume more than is detailed here, we make a bigger batch of kale/apple/misc fruit & veggie juice every week to fill in many meals.

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!
