Menu Plan: January 9th- 15th


Last week I talked about getting back into my healthy eating again and started to focus my meal plans on whole foods. Funny thing, Tuesday Ethan started getting a runny nose. I've been giving him extra vitamins to boost his immune system and he's fine now. Then Thursday night I started feeling funny and now have another sinus infection. Really, another illness?? That makes a 3rd illness in a month! It made me even more serious about kicking it up a notch eating organic foods and cutting out the sugar. Now after 3 days of eating healthy, drinking 2 green smoothies a day, taking a huge amount of vitamins, using my SinuCleanse Nasal Wash System, Plastic Neti Pot With Salt Packets I'm almost 100% well!

We made a trip to Whole Foods Friday and stocked up on a few things. Now most my meals are at least 85% organic, some meals are more or less. I'm purchasing all my meat products which are free range, no antibiotics or nitrates. I still have some non-organic canned corn, green beans and beans which obviously I'm using up. Dairy is the only big thing that is not organic, but I'm scaling back how much cheese we consume anyway (well I say that and I see my husband grab the block of cheese a few times this week to go with suppers! lol). Most of the eggs I get are from my inlaws which are free range, antibiotic, med free as well.

My husband went to the store to pick up a couple of things I forgot to get for him (remember, he doesn't eat 'healthy') like his chips, white pasta, etc. He also picked up a couple bags of gold fish crackers and vanilla waffers for Ethan *sigh* He doesn't think my healthy snacks are sufficient enough. That's ok, I'm working on him! After all it has been a few months since we have eaten so strictly.  I just need to prepare more snacks that look more filling to him I guess.

Sunday: Baked turkey breast, mashed potatoes, corn, salad and homemade whole wheat rolls

Monday: Grilled chicken breast, whole wheat pasta w/tomato sauce, green beans, and salad

Tuesday: Beef stew, corn bread, pinto beans, and cheese sticks

Wednesday: Sausage, scrambled eggs, gravy and whole wheat biscuits. 

Thursday:  Chili (trying a new organic seasoning mix!), beans (because hubby doesn't like it in his chili) and corn bread.

Friday: Homemade pizza on whole wheat crust 

Saturday: Ground beef tacos on homemade whole wheat tortillas, black beans & salsa with organic corn tortilla chips  

Breakfasts: Buckwheat Waffles, Giant Breakfast Cookies, and Breakfast Burritos.

Lunches: Right now I still have a stock of turkey breasts in my freezer. I cook one on Sunday and it serves as one main meal plus our lunch meat through the week. Once I run out of these turkey breasts I will be switching me and Ethan's lunches to more bean and veggie base while husband still has turkey meat from the deli.

Snacks: apples & oranges, chewy granola bars, crockpot yogurt, and whole wheat graham crackers
