When we started eating healthy I realized I had a desperate need for menu planning. I am the least organized person you will ever meet but if I don’t menu plan then our family can throw all hope for healthy food out the window. Shoot, you can go ahead and throw all up for dinner on the table out the window. I am excited to share with you our weekly menu plan so that perhaps you too can make sure healthy meals hit the dinner table each week. Now, our dinner menu looks a little bit strange because we only plan Monday-Thursday unlike most families. Friday night is always Date Night as we go before attending our churches home group and the weekends are so unpredictable that we don’t plan for them until later in the week if necessary.
Monday – One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken & Veggies – Damn Delicious
Tuesday – Homemade Pizza. We use Venice Bakery All Natural Pizza Dough, Organic Pasta Sauce, Shredded Mozzarella Cheese and Pepperoni. Side: Salad!
Wednesday – Buffalo Chicken & Bean Chili – Skinny Taste and served with Beanitos!
Thursday – Three Cheese Zucchini Stuffed Lasagna – Skinny Taste plus a Salad!
You will quickly learn that I may or may not have a serious obsession with Skinny Taste and Damn Delicious! I normally open up my Skinny Taste cookbook or her website first then head over to Damn Delicious for some of her awesome one pot or one pan recipes. This week we have pepperoni pizza on the menu because I know my homemade pizza is far better for us than ordering from Papa John’s or somewhere similar. My husband loves Pepperoni Pizza so we’ve gotta make sure it hits the menu from time to time for his sake. I’m kind of looking forward to a “lazy” dinner night too because sometimes these recipes get complicated.
We’ve had everything but the Three Cheese Zucchini Stuffed Lasagna at this point and they are delicious. I love how easy the One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken & Veggies is and it makes for a great pre-workout dinner if you happen to workout at night (I know because we had it for dinner before our high intensity workout last night). The Buffalo Chicken & Bean Chili is pretty spicy so we do a little less Frank’s hot sauce so my daughter can enjoy it too. The cheese and sour cream to help calm it down a little. It’s seriously delicious! I have no doubt that Gina won’t lead me wrong with her Three Cheese Zucchini Stuffed Lasagna either because seriously all of her recipes are amazing. Check in on facebook or instagram to see how dinner went if you want to keep up with our menu planning throughout the week!
What’s on your menu this week?
