7 Day Healthy, Quick Menu

I'm finally getting around to posting the healthy, quick menu I promised back during the Paralympics. Month and a half late.... Wow!

When I do a menu for the week I balance out protein and carb sources. I make sure to include a veggie meal or two which is not only healthy but cuts costs. Each meal is linked to the recipe already on the blog. Create your grocery list by checking out each recipe and writing down what you don't already have on hand. If you are really feeling frisky double each recipe for freezing or lunches. The only recipe that isn't freezer friendly is the Greek Fajitas (actually you can freeze the meat and grilled veggies) but those leftovers are perfect for lunch!

The 7 Day Healthy, Quick Menu

  1. Chicken Fajita Pasta
  2. Maritime Seafood Chowder
  3. Heuvos Rancheros
  4. Pasta al Forno
  5. Greek Fajitas
  6. Jambalaya
  7. Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein

This menu is heavy on the can tomatoes which are extremely good for you. Try to get the low sodium or no salt added variety. You can always add more salt but you can never take it away....

Add a side salad to get an extra veggie serving into your meals or add more veggies in the meal itself. And don't be afraid of frozen veggies, especially in the off seasons!

Feel free to email me any questions!
