Fit Meals Monday


It’s amazing how fast Christmas is approaching.  Every day it gets nearer I get a little more stressed. I’m thankful though that we finally didn’t have a swim meet to attend so that I could get some things done. Of course not everything I had planned, but the Christmas tree is up, and zillions of cookies were baked for 2 cookie swap parties.

People usually make excuses this time a year about why they can’t exercise, or get fit.  I think it’s time to lose the excuses and start following a plan.  Speaking of plans. Here’s my dinner meal plan for the week. I’m planning on keeping the holiday pounds off this year. What about you??? To help you out in the New Year, I have a giveaway going on below!  Plus, find out how YOU can get FREE coaching from me!

Fit Meals Monday


Here’s the skinny on our dinner menu for the week!

I used the Shop The Pantry/Freezer, the Shopping the Sales Paper, and Theme Night methods from my Meal Planning 101 series to make the following meal plan. Check out the series!  I looked through my freezer and pantry to make my meal plan, which saved me tons of extra money this week. I just had to add some fresh veggies from the sales paper, and added some milk and eggs to my list and that’s it!

Meatless Monday- White Beans and Greens, Whole Foods Cole Slaw

Taco Tuesday- Steak Fajitas

Easy Wednesday- Low fat Beef Stroganoff

Grill Thursday- Grilled Chicken, Baked Beans, Mixed Green Salad with veggies

Fish Friday- Salmon Patties, Roasted Coconut Sweet Potatoes, salad

Simple Saturday- leftover buffet :)

Sunday- My sweet Victoria’s 7th birthday Under the Sea Tea Party… I’ll share pictures next week. :) or check out my Pinterest page for a sneak peak of cute things I’ve pinned!

Meal Planning 101: shopping the sales papers


Before I begin, I’d like to share some news! I’m excited to announce that we will be starting a Friday series called “Figure Friendly Comfort Foods”. Now that fall is here, I’m craving every pumpkin dish, creamy soups, and any type of pie. The one thing I don’t want to do is pack on the pounds so I’m starting this series and I’d LOVE for you to join me! Every Friday I’ll post a comfort food makeover that’s a little easier on your waistline. If you have a blog, please join me on Fridays and you can link up below giving me one of your makeover meals! It will be fun to re-create the things we love, making healthier versions for our families. Will you join me??? Come back this Friday September 28 for the kick off! Work on your recipe this week, and link up here Friday. You can grab the banner below (code is at bottom of page) or come back tomorrow for a few more options. :)

Last week I started a series dedicated to different ways to meal plan, called Meal Planning 101.  If you missed the first two posts here are links to… “Meal Planning 101: how to make a weekly meal plan” and “Meal Planning 101: family favorites.” Today I will continue the series with another way that I make a meal plan.

We all know that times are tough.  The economy is just not what it used to be a few years ago.  Suddenly, a lot of us find ourselves pinching pennies.  Shopping the sales paper is one of my favorite ways to not only save money, but make a great meal plan.

Here’s how I do it. I look online for the local ads of my favorite grocery stores.  I write down my favorite fresh veggie and fruit items.  Then I look at the meat items and I start paring veggies with the meat to make a meal. Of course I also plan meatless meals because we are cutting back on meat in our house.

Here’s an example of how to shop the sales paper.  This week chicken was on sale for $1.67 per pound.  Tomatoes for 59 cents a pound.  Zucchini was 3 lbs for $1.  Lean ground beef $2.79 per pound.  My favorite Fuju apples were nicely priced at 69 cents a pound.  Baby okra, frozen, was $1.59 per bag.  Plain non fat yogurt was $1.79 each.  Extra large cans of black beans are $1.99.  A pound of strawberries are 99 cents. Avocados are 2 for $1!

Here’s what I just thought up off the top of my head to make with these ingredients.

Sample Weekly Meal Plan

Monday- Succotash (okra, corn, tomatoes) with cornbread

Tuesday- Stuffed zucchini boats (stuffed with lean ground beef and quinoa and use the cleaned out zucchini and tomatoes as well) served with an avocado black bean tomato salad

Wednesday- Moussaka, a Greek dish using the yogurt and lean ground beef

Thursday- Black bean chili (using the beans, tomatoes, lean ground beef, strain yogurt to add on top like a dollap of sour cream)

Friday- Zucchini, tomatoes, basil from my garden served over whole wheat pasta

Saturday- Homemade BRC Burritos (use the tomatoes to make salsa, black beans, and ground beef, brown rice in my pantry)

Sunday- BBQ chicken served with BBQ black beans, quinoa, and baked apples for dessert

Come back Wednesday when I share another one of my favorite ways to meal plan!  Subscribe so you won’t miss out!

Do you have a healthy meal plan?? If so, post the link below! We’d LOVE to see it!
