Menu Plan Monday
I've also been very sick the past 2 months. I finally found out my gallbladder is rotten and it will be coming out in 3 weeks. I've been on a very limited diet because of the pain, but am starting to cook a bit here and there.
The better news is that I won a Wholly Guacamole Prize Pack from Dragondreamer's Lair! I have to be careful about how much of it I eat, due to how the fat content affects my gallbladder, but I am enjoying the new salsa and my 17 month old daughter loves the guac!
Sunday: Big Vat of Beef Vegetable Soup in the slow cooker
Monday: Leftover soup!
Tuesday: Agave Lime Chicken
Wednesday: Falafel with Cucumber Sauce
Thursday: Beef and Bean Chimichangas, Salad
Friday: Quinoa Pasta with Tomatoes, Sauteed Onion and Zucchini, and Fresh Basil
Saturday: Date night?
Breakfasts: Overnight Oatmeal (my favorite combo now is 1/3 c. oats, 1/3 c. unsweetened plain almond milk, 1/2 TB chia seeds, 1/2 sliced banana a couple drops a vanilla stevia, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The next morning, I add a scoop of peanut butter and some fresh blueberries) or Fruit and Spinach Smoothies
Lunches: Blackberry Smoothie or Veggie Smoothie. Snack of nuts and fruit, or a few squares of sharp cheddar.
