Fit Meals Monday!!! Add your meal plan today and check out ours!

Today is our first ever Fit Meals Monday! I’m so excited to visit your blogs and/or read in the comments section below what your family is having for dinner this week! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here to find out all you need to know about Fit Meals Monday.  I don’t know about you, but I get extremely busy, and when I don’t plan ahead I tend to feed my kids junk. Be it junk from a box, or junk from a fast food restaurant.  Or, we go to a nice restaurant and spend $40+ on an over-sized meal that we gobble up and our stomachs hurt afterward. When I do these things I feel just awful, so that is why I’m creating Fit Meals Monday.

I want to put my menu out there to help someone else like me who gets in a menu rut, especially when it comes to making yummy healthy meals.  I also want to learn from you ladies what you cook for your family, and how you try to “keep it healthy”.  One other thing I wanted to mention is that if you have gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, vegan or raw meal plans, we’d LOVE to see what you are cooking too.  I’d LOVE to add some of your meals into our weekly plan at our home, and I’m sure thousands of other moms would love to as well.

Let’s Do This!

Here’s my menu for the week.

Meatless Monday– Salad  (I don’t know what kind or where we will get one.  We are heading back home from Blog World Expo in Las Vegas.  We’ll try to find a Whole Foods or a salad bar on the road. )

Taco TuesdayFish Taco’s these healthy fist tacos are a favorite in our house!

Crockpot WednesdayCrock Pot Roast with Veggies we love the crock pot!  (just use fresh seasonings instead of the soup mix it you are watching your sodium).  This is from my Once a Month cooking I did last month!

Raw ThursdayVeggie Burgers in Lettuce Bun from our Daddy Does It Raw series!  (my husband made us raw meals for an entire month!  I LOVE that man!  (NO cooking for me, it was AWESOME!)

Fish Friday–  Tilapia Corn Chowder

Simple Saturday–  Homemade roasted veggie pizza- I use Trader Joe’s pizza dough, Trader Joe’s sauce, low fat mozzarella cheese, and I roast whatever veggies we have left over for the week and sprinkle them on top.  Yum!

Sunday– This week we’ll be at my Mom’s for a big Family Sunday Supper.  So, whatever she cooks I’ll be eating.  I can’t wait!

  1. I seriously love this idea and how you have themes for each day. I bet it makes planning so much easier! Here are our meals for the week –

    Wed: whatever served at church small groups dinner
    Thur: Lightened Up Chicken Pot Pie
    Fri: Homemade Pizza Friday

    Thanks Tina! The sweet potato chili sounds great! Do you have a recipe? If you want to put this on your blog and link up above. That would be great too! (see Super Healthy Kids) : ) Thanks for joining in.

  3. OK, between you and Amy — I am starting to get motivated to consistently meal plan. The “cooking-a-meal-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-every-day” method does not work very well, I’m here to report. Let me get my cookbooks out, grocery list made, and it is my goal to join you here at Fit Meals Monday sometime soon. Don’t lose hope, OK? Organization is not my strong suit :)

    Awesome! I’d love to have you join us! I like the idea Artsy Mommy 365 has above in the links to let your family decide on some of their favorite meals for the week. Check out her post. Love it! Please join us and spread the word so we can all get some great ideas!

  5. Have a big family? This is an easy soup to feed them all, or if you’re in a small household you can eat all week on this:

    2 cartons low sodium veggie broth (I get mine from Trader Joe’s)
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 chopped onion
    1 head chopped bok choy
    1 cup quinoa
    1 cup veggie meat (ground beef substitute)
    1 can black beans

    season with 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cayenne pepper and boil for 10-15 minutes and simmer for 30-45 min after. Bon appetite!

    I love this idea too! It’s fun to get other ideas from other moms. We don’t necessarily have themed days but I think I might have to give that a try. It just makes things more fun and creative. So here’s our menu for the week:

    Monday: Tonight we had enchiladas. If you want to do a “meatless” Monday, you can substitute tofu for the meat. Can’t even tell the difference. I think i might make that for next weeks “meatless” Monday :)

    Tuesday: Going to my mother-in-laws for dinner. One less night to think about what to cook!

    Wednesday: Pot Roast with veggies ( The crock pot pot roast sounds like a great idea)

    Thursday: Salmon with ginger soy butter ( so good!)

    Friday: Tacos with homemade tortillas! yum!
