Menu Plan Monday

Look at me... starting a new blog and then immediately getting too sick to post! I think I've kicked my multiple-day allergy/cold fiesta, so hopefully I'll actually be able to write this week.

Trying to eat more mindfully was a mixed bag while I wasn't feeling well, but I think I'm doing better at it than I was. Not perfect, but better. I'm trying not to let the imperfections overpower me and make me stop trying altogether. It's hard, but remembering the Great Stuffed Shells Incident of last week is helping me keep my resolve. I don't want my kids to end up battling food the way that I do.

On a semi-related note, I eat so much better when I take the time to actually plan my meals out each week, but I've been slacking on doing that lately. I want to get back into the habit, and when I saw a menu planning link-up on a blog this week, I thought that would be a good place to start. Accountability for myself + ideas from others = awesome. So here's my first effort at Menu Plan Monday (or in my case, Sunday... but late Sunday, in any event), which I'm linking up over at

Monday: Veggie burgers, sweet potato fries

Tuesday: Fragrant chickpea stew, basmati rice, chapatis

Wednesday: Three-bean rice and vegetable skillet, biscuits

Thursday: Crockpot lentil soup, crusty bread

Friday: Ravioli with tomato sauce, steamed broccoli, garlic bread

Saturday: Tofu and veggie stir-fry, brown rice

Sunday: Something easy - leftovers, sandwiches and a vegetable, etc.

Meal planning is a life saver! So much easier for the wallet and you don't have to worry about last minute throwing stuff together!
