Let me start by saying, I hate daylight savings when you loose an hour, especially when you only realize it is happening a couple of hours before bed. Woke up this morning, had breakfast and now finishing my breakfast latte while writing this blog and it is midday already – I have not done a whole lot yet. Anyway, into the recap from the week and this week’s plan…..
This week was a much better week. I actually cooked a couple of meals in preparation for the week, and there was less stress at work which made it easier to come home and get things done. I got some brownie points as I was proactive and organized 2 days of walking at lunch with a friend starting this week.
We have switched to gluten-free pasta now for about 6 weeks and I will say everyone in the house (my husband, 5-year-old and myself), have found two great brands that we all love. In fact, we like Quinoa Gluten-free Pasta – Spaghetti Style and the Archer farms Gluten-free Fusilli Pastas better than the old stuff we were using. The price ($2.50-$4.00 range at our local Super Target), taste and overall cooked result are our main reasons for liking these two products. My son, who is a little fussy (not too bad, he’s jus not a vegetable person), asks for seconds and devours the spaghetti by the bowlful.
Here is our meal plan for the week:
|Saturday||^Strawberry-Banana Whole Wheat Crepes||Cabbage Soup (Slow-Cooked which differs from the recipe)*|
|Sunday||^Strawberry-Banana Whole Wheat Crepes||Vegetable Frittata||3-4 Mile Walk|
|Monday||Egg + Berry/Banana Fruit Salad with Flaxseed||Vegetable Pasta Bake*|
|Tuesday||Whole Grain Cereal+Soy||Fish and Vegetable Pockets||3-4 Mile Walk|
|Wednesday||Oatmeal + Banana and Almond butter||^Pizza @ zPizza (love the options at this place)|
|Thursday||Berry + Banana + Spirulina Smoothie||Hungarian Casserole + Quinoa*||3-4 Mile Walk|
|Friday||Berry + Banana + Spirulina Smoothie||Vegetable Chilli + Brown Rice + Corn Tortilla’s*|
