Welcome to Meal Plan Monday! Please link your Meal Plan up at the bottom to share with others!

I meal plan every single week and usually stick to it.  It makes things so much easier when you know what you are planning for dinner each night!  When I really bring my A-game to the meal planning I try to plan meals where I can make one large batch of beans or grains and use them throughout the week.  It makes nightly meal prep go so much quicker.

This week my pantry item of choice is quinoa.  If you make up a big batch at the beginning of the week you won’t have to worry about it each day. You can also eat leftovers over it or add it to salads for lunch.  Cook up at least 2 cups for the week.  This should give you enough for all the meals plus a little leftover for salads and such.  You can always freeze any quinoa that you don’t use!

 A note about our mornings: we start each day with a variation of this green smoothie recipe before breakfast.  It tides the kids over until breakfast is ready plus I know they’ve had plenty of greens first thing in the morning (fiber!). I can also mix any supplements or herbs we need into the smoothie if needed.
