Menu Plan August 1-15

It's a new month! I feel like this summer is just flying by!  Even though I planned out all 3 meals for the second half of July, we didn't even really look at the menu plan for breakfasts or lunches.  I'm kind of okay with that, as long as we have enough different options in the house.  Jesse and I have started tracking our food through My Fitness Pal again, which tracks calories as well as different nutrition information like protein, carbs, and fats.  It's helped us lose weight in the past, and it's time to get back into that again!

Jesse likes to have his food planned out to have pretty much the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day, but I like variety in mine.

Here's his:
Breakfast: 3 eggs, 1 banana, 1 cup milk, spinach and mushrooms (some days)
Lunch: 4oz. chicken breast, 1 cup cottage cheese or 2 string cheeses, salad mix (some days)
Dinner: Whatever I make, hopefully around 500 calories or less
Snacks: yogurt, apples, seasonal fruits

He's not big on just eating veggies like me and the kids, so I'll have to make sure to up the veggies in our dinners so he doesn't miss out.

As for the rest of us, here's the plan for the first part of this month:

  • PB&J
  • Turkey Sandwiches
  • Turkey Pinwheels
  • Cheese Tortillas
  • Snack-y Lunch
  • Freezer Soups (Chili and Bean Soup)

  3. Leftover Soup and Biscuits

  6. Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats (zucchini from church members' gardens)
  7. Red Bean Jamaican Stew
