Menu Plan for August 9th

So, as I mentioned last week, this week we are switching to new eating habits! I'm hoping to see some big improvements in everyone's overall health. So what exactly are we doing? Well, we are cutting out all processed foods, wheat, soy, and sugar. And for this first week, at least, we are cutting out grains in general (although, we will be letting the kids have a few grains). Our goal is not to cut grains entirely, just for a week or two. Breakfast and lunches will basically be the same throughout the week. So, here it is:

Breakfast: Eggs, leftover veggie from night before & a fruit. We will also offer the kids oatmeal (I think they'll balk at eggs 7 days a week!)

Lunch: Lunch will be leftovers from dinner the night before.

Monday - Chicken, salad, broccoli

Tuesday - Steak, salad, spinach (and probably corn for the kids)

Wednesday - Fish, salad, asparagus

Thursday - Black bean soup, salad, cauliflower

Friday - chicken, salad, spinach (again, kids will probably get corn)

Saturday - Turkey, salad, broccoli

Sunday - Roast, salad, cauliflower.

So that's our plan. I'll let you know next week how well it went over :o)

Hello. I just followed your link from Org Junkie. Your menu looks great! I'm not sure why you're cutting out grains (yeah, I know, I can go back and find out), but I have a breakfast suggestion. (Don't you love strangers who come from nowhere with "suggestions"?)

Anyway. How about fruit smoothies? Right now I'm finding great deals on fresh fruit (and I froze a bunch of others in season) - at least 3 times a week, I enjoy that for breakfast. (OJ, nonfat yogurt, and a BUNCH of fruit.) My son used to LOVE them when he was home. . .
