Meal Plan Monday

With farmers market still going strong, Jason’s gold buying business picking up for the fall, school getting back to our regular schedule, and adding a new baby this year, my goal is to keep my cooking and shopping S-I-M-P-L-E.  Here is what we will be eating this week:


Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothies (I omit the yogurt and add extra almond milk and extra strawberries since we are dairy free) and cereal bars from Trader Joe’s (a serious treat around here)

Toast, fresh fruit

Bagels x 2, fresh fruit

Oatmeal or homemade granola x 3, fresh fruit (we also love frozen blueberries in our oatmeal!)


Just to spare you from reading it 7 times – I always serve fresh veggies with lunch (carrots, peppers, cucumbers and anything else I have)

No Bake Energy Bites

English muffins

Baked potatoes (we enjoy our potatoes with butter, and some of us like either a little salt or ketchup (not me – yuck!) since we don’t do cheese)

Burritos (I spread a whole wheat tortilla with refried black or pinto beans, add fresh veggies, and fold ‘er up – no cheese needed)

Pumpkin Raisin muffins

PB & J

Potluck with church – I’ll be bringing cookies since it is Jason’s 40th birthday this Friday :)!


Veggie Black Bean and Barley Soup, bread

Sautéed Veggies in Island Soyaki (a la Trader Joe’s), brown rice, homemade peach sorbet

Lentils and Spinach (I’ll throw in any leftover rice from above as well, and a ton of shredded carrots.  I serve with fresh chopped tomatoes and cucumbers.  This is definitely a great lentil recipe – coming from someone who doesn’t love the taste of lentils but appreciates their frugal qualities.), fresh fruit

Pinto Bean Bowls (I cook an enormous crock pot of beans starting in the morning), fresh salsa and guacamole, corn chips

Pizza (or popcorn for the dairy-free among us) and Movie Night, fresh veggies, fruit and veggie smoothie

Spaghetti, sautéed onions, zucchini and yellow squash, green smoothie

Leftovers and whatevers

Let me know if there are any recipes you’d like me to post.  Go snoop around the rest of the meal plans over at Meal Plan Monday.  Happy eating!
