Meal Plan: Week of October 7th

It’s week 2 of the What’s For Dinner? Meal Planning Challenge.

Last week went well. I switched around a few days just because Buddha’s Delight sounded better than Veggie Chili one night.

Here’s this week’s dinner plan:

Sunday: Ron’s homemade pizza

Monday: Breakfast for dinner – eggs and pancakes

Tuesday: Pumpkin Spinach Quesadillas and black bean salad

Wednesday: Sweet Potato and Kale Pockets

Thursday: White Bean “Cheese” Burgers

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Dinner out

Friday night, the party animal that I am, I started combing my recipe binder, Pinterest and other blogs for ideas for this week.The Pumpkin Spinach Quesadilla is actually from a magazine our local grocery store puts out. I’ve made a sweet potato quesadilla hundreds of times for my kids (it’s one of their favorites) so I thought I’d try it with pumpkin this time. We’ll see how it goes over.

What are you having for dinner this week?

  2. Smart to plan out your menu in advance, especially for those people who have difficulty staying true to healthy eating. As with most things, proper preparation is a formula for success.

    Like Maria@LylMysNinja said, I’m a big fan of breakfast for dinner, or lunch. I’ve been slowly cutting down my meat consumption (all land animals, not just beef) and have eliminated about 90% of it from my diet over the last year and a half, but that finds me struggling for protein so it’s not uncommon for me to have eggs at all times of the day.

    I think the key, too, is making sure you and your spouse are on the same page with eating so you don’t have one person striving hard for proper planning and healthy eating and the other (usually the man) eating crap and speeding through the drive-thru.
