Many people don't eat right because they're throwing something together last minute, or grabbing take out, or just skipping the meal...All BAD! OK, sometimes you can throw together a healthy meal last minute, but not always, so why take a chance? I gave and assignment to my RHF Fit Friends; create a menu plan.Here were the guidelines:
There are plenty of recipes posted on the RHF page (feel free to add to it if you find something good). And you can also use Food on the Table.
1) 7 dinners w/ recipes and a shopping list of ingredients.
2) Each meal must have protein, vegetables, and healthy carbs (count your potatoes and corn on the cob as carbs NOT veggies).
3) Nothing out of a box (ie mac and cheese, hamburger helper, etc). If you need help ask, but make sure you try first. When you're done, post on the RHF page and let everyone know that you've planned a week's worth of healthy meals for you and your family!
Since it's only fair, I'm posting my menu plan for the week and the groceries I'll need to make it happen.
Sunday: Pork roast braised in tomato sauce, pasta, salad (pork roast, San Marzano tomatoes, basil, parsley, pasta, romaine, fresh spinach, carrots, celery, cucumbers)
Monday: Kabobs, corn on the cob (lean beef, peppers, red onion, yellow squash, corn on the cob)
Tuesday: Turkey scallopini, brown rice, blanched green beans w/ lemon (thin sliced turkey cutlets, brown rice, green beans, lemons, garlic)
