What's on your menu?

In the spirit of getting back to eating healthy, we (okay, mostly me) made a meal plan for the week and a shopping list that includes going to five different places (farmer’s market, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods or Lassens [unless someone can suggest a better place for bulk dried beans], Costco, and the Asian market).

Since it’s been hot and dry during the day but a bit chilly at night, we’re looking at salads for lunch and warmer meals for supper.

On tap for the week:
  • Chinese chicken salad (found some good cabbages at the farmer’s market!)
  • miso soup (hence the Asian market—making it from scratch!)
  • quinoa salad (quinoa plus veggies) with creamy balsamic dressing
  • Mediterranean orzo salad
  • wraps (whole wheat olive oil wraps + hummus + veggies + feta)
  • white bean and kielbasa soup (found a great turkey kielbasa at TJ’s)
  • chicken piccata (Clean Eating recipe, so a bit lighter than the usual)
  • whole wheat pasta w/red sauce (already made/homemade) and turkey/spinach meatballs (homemade)

We hit the farmer’s market and TJ’s today; tomorrow we’ll do Whole Foods and Costco. The Asian market is within walking distance, so that’ll be easy.

What’s on your menu this week? Any healthy recipes to share?

Still trying to figure out the menu. Probably turkey enchiladas tonight (we have a ton of leftover turkey from Christmas). I foresee a lot of salads. However, I also know Himself is craving a lasagne and already bought the ricotta, so we'll have to attempt portion control. Lasagne is so yummy, but while you can load it with good-for-you ingredients, and we do, it's still high calorie.
