Menu Plan {1.23.12}

Part of staying a bit more organized and getting my household under control is menu planning. Not only can I have meals on the table in less time, but I save a bit of money each week as well.

This menu plan mine.

This isn’t a recommendation of what you should be eating, but rather a sample of the foods we eat each week in our home. I strive to live by my “Natural Fertility Manifesto”, which includes plenty of nutrient dense, whole foods and very limited sweets.

  1. Sounds a lot like our meals! I start every day with hot water w/ lemon too. It really helps get your digestive system started. I drink about 3 large mugs of hot lemon water a day. Sometimes 4. It’s a lot easier to get down than plain water. Plus it’s good for your gut.

    Good luck with the menu planning. I can’t remember what life was like without it since I’ve been doing it so many years now. I don’t know how people cook decent meals without it 😛

    My favorite breakfast the last couple weeks…big salad! It’s a great way to start the day with lots of fresh veggies, healthy fat and plenty of protein. I put tons of toppings on. And I almost always add at least one egg yolk to my dressing. I often use homemade pesto for my salad dressing (just peas, EVOO, salt and garlic powder blended).

    I’m working really hard this week to avoid sweets!! I hope it goes well.
