Menu Plan Monday - January 3, 2011

healthy weekly meal plan

Did everyone have a nice holiday season?  Ours was wonderful, but it was so hectic.  With the holidays over, I definitely need to refocus on menu planning.  We relied a lot of convenience foods during December because we were so busy.  So it is time to get back into the habit of cooking everything from scratch and using healthy whole foods.

So here's what we are eating this week:

Sunday:  Chicken Spinach and Noodle Soup, Salad

Monday:   Heart Vegetarian Chili, Rice, Roasted Cauliflower

Prep work the night before:  Soak rice, Soak beans
Prep work that morning:  Cook beans

Tuesday:  Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad

Prep work the night before:  Prepare pasta dough and allow to soak.
Prep work that morning:  Make pasta and allow to dry until the afternoon

Wednesday:   Chicken Asparagus casserole, Honey roasted carrots
 Prep work the night before:  Soak rice
Prep work that morning:  Cook rice and assemble casserole.

Thursday:  Beans and rice with salsa
Prep work the night before:  Soak rice, soak beans
Prep work that morning:  Cook rice, beans. 

Friday:  Homemade Pizza, Green Beans, Fruit Salad
Prep work the night before:   Soak pizza dough
Prep work that morning:  Cut up veggies
