It’s Sunday morning, which means …. Time for some menu planning!
The post-Purim week is always a challenge in our house. My goal with this menu plan was to create health-full meals that will somehow compete with the baskets-full of JUNK that are hiding in various cabinets of my kitchen.
And that’s not just for my kids, but for me, too!
I have been working hard since Thursday to NOT fall face first into that sugar pit. Sadly, I have learned about myself that I am not a person with tremendous will power. This makes moderation very, very hard for me. None is actually easier than some.
(If you are the kind of person who can eat JUST two Oreos, will you please, please tell me how you do that?)
In any case, my kids are for sure way overly sugared, so I tried to make a menu plan that was high on protein and healthy fat and low on carbs. Two nights have more simple carbs (potatoes, pizza crust), but the rest eschew them altogether. We’ll see how it goes.
Monday — Baked potato bar (I’m still deciding if I will do this meat or dairy; if meat, I’ll make a bean-free turkey chili for the potatoes)
Tuesday — Paleo chicken & broccoli with zoodles
Wednesday — Slow cooker chicken verde with chicken thighs. Served with corn tortillas, sliced red peppers, diced tomatoes, avocado, and onion salsa. I’ll have some bibb lettuce for a grain-free option as well.
Thursday — Pizza night (with a cauliflower crust option)
Friday – Thai Chicken Zucchini Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce (I will sub Sunshine Butter, as I’m avoiding peanut butter right now)
What are you eating this week? I’d love to know!
