Menu Plan Monday - March 30

I've been doing my menu plans on Google Calendar for a while, but I really miss the camaraderie of this meme, so I decided to post again. :-)

The breakfasts look large with whole grains and smoothies or a protein, but I am using smaller servings. I am trying to get a nice variety of nutrients in first thing every day. Ideas are appreciated!


Breakfast: oatmeal, green kefir smoothie
Lunch: toasted tuna sandwiches, carrot sticks
Dinner: Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa (I'm adding pre-cooked chicken in towards the end of the cooking time since that's all I have), salad


Breakfast: Leftover Oatmeal Muffins, scrambled eggs, fruit
Lunch: grilled cheese sandwiches, salad
Dinner: Ground Beef & Cabbage with brown rice


Breakfast: cooked millet, green kefir smoothie
Lunch: Pizza Toasts (from Nourishing Traditions), salad
Dinner: Chicken Enchiladas, corn


Breakfast: sourdough toast, fried eggs, fruit
Lunch: PB & J, carrot sticks
Dinner: Crockpot Taco Soup (4th recipe), Blender Batter Cornbread, green beans


Breakfast: Kasha, green kefir or yogurt smoothie
Lunch: Ground Beef & Cabbage Pockets (from freezer)
Dinner: Lentil & Rice Casserole (2nd recipe), salad


I'm going to try a large brunch and see if I can get away with two meals, as I do a lot of cooking & baking for the week on Saturdays.

Brunch: Blender Batter Pancakes, Homemade Turkey Sausage, fruit
Dinner: spaghetti with meat sauce or homemade pizza, salad


We usually eat a late lunch/early dinner after church and graze if we're hungry later. :-)

Breakfast: toast, hard-boiled eggs, fruit
Lunch/Dinner: Crockpot Chicken Chili (I am using homemade chicken broth, my own cooked beans and fresh tomatoes instead of canned)

My menu plan calendar is available here if you are interested. It includes daily cooking notes. I have it set up to send me an agenda via e-mail every day, which is very helpful.

    I bet your chicken enchiladas will taste so much better than the frozen ones I made and tried to pass off as home made.
