On The Menu: Nov 11th

What is on the menu this week?

Happy MONDAY LADIES!! What are YOU eating this week? Want to know what I plan to feed my family this week? It can be hard to cook for a family of 7 when you are trying to eat vegetarian and healthy BUT you can still cook healthy meals and make small changes for yourself or whoever needs to adjust the meal! I cook all of these meals from scratch and only use whole food products/options. 🥗 🍏

 Monday: bean chili, baked potato bar

 Tuesday: chx, shrimp stir fry, brown rice

 Wednesday: breakfast for dinner, eggs, veggies, whole grain toast, fruit

 Thursday: slow cooker meatloaf and mashed potatoes, veggies

 Friday: turkey and veggie hard tacos, rice, fruit

weekend: chicken and veggie (chx dumplings) slow cooker, home pizza (gluten-free and reg crust) with veggie toppings

**sometimes depending on the meal we may add a side of baked beans, yellow rice, chips and salsa, etc for the kids but honestly, they also eat pretty healthy and enjoy fruit and salads for their sides.

For myself, I usually have bran flakes dry (no milk), 1/2 of a flax/whole-grain muffin, a homemade smoothie, protein shake, salad, nuts, fruit or brown rice for breakfast and/or lunch during the week. When cooking meat for my family, I usually have a substitute for myself or vegan leftovers.

Often times hubby and I modify these recipes and add/subtract accordingly for ourselves depending on the night.

For pasta dishes, I use plant-based noodles like lentil/pea noodles, for rice I use whole grain.
