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!

Meal Planning 101: using a cookbook or magazine

Hi Fit Moms! The last two weeks I’ve been writing a series about how to meal plan.  I’m hoping that there will be a style that you will like and can begin to use at home.  If you missed the first post that explains why I’m writing this series, check out “Meal Planning 101: how to make a weekly meal plan.”  Here are some of the ways I make a healthy meal plan, “Meal Planning 101: family favorites“, and “Meal Planning 101: shopping the sales paper, and “Meal Planning 101: theme nights.”

The next lesson in Meal Planning 101 is actually something I don’t do very often, because we are on a budget.  But, this is a very fun way to do it, it involves using a magazine or cookbook to plan my meals.  But, with the right cookbook (like a healthy meal on a budget type cookbook) or the right magazine you can find some ready made meal plans for you to just copy and post up on your fridge! All your planning and shopping lists many times are already done for you. This is a great option especially for those of you who want to eat healthy but just don’t know where to start. It’s also good for those of you who just refuse to give meal planning on your own a try.  This way is also good for busy moms who feel like they don’ t have a lot of time to make up their own recipe plan.

One cookbook that I often recommend, was one I used when I was trying to lose 40lbs after the birth of my daughter. I followed it perfectly. I just picked meals from it, writing it on a piece of paper. Every meal was recorded on a resource page, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. I then created a shopping list based on the meals. Click here for a FREE meal plan calendar or log. The book I used was called The Formula. The meals were great! The entire family enjoyed them. You don’t have to use this book! There are plenty out there like The Eat Clean Diet for Family and Kids, and for those of you who have trouble getting veggies into your kids diets, there’s the popular Sneaky Chef. Any book will do with good healthy recipes.

Not only can you find great healthy recipes for your weekly meal plan from cookbooks, but you can also find them in magazines! One of my favorites is called Clean Eating Magazine.  Many times they have the entire week planned for you!  Also, from time to time magazines like Everyday With Rachael Ray will have some healthy meal options.  Other magazines that I like to look through to pull healthy recipe ideas from when I’m making a magazine meal plan are Cooking Light, Eating Well, Taste of Home Healthy Cooking, and Weight Watchers.  If you’d like to subscribe to any of these, I have a way you can do it and save up to 50% or more off of the newstand prices! By clicking on the banner below you can save $$ and at the same time help my son who is trying to raise money to go to Boy Scout summer camp next year! This year it cost over $500 for him to go to summer camp, and he raised all of the funds himself. He’s starting earlier this year. So, if you like the idea of magazine meal planning… and you’d like to save money on your magazine… AND if you’d like to help an 11 year old raise $ so that he can pay for his own summer camp please click the link below.

What magazines or cookbooks do YOU use to help you meal plan?

Olympic Fit Meals Monday

Hi Fit Moms Fit Kids Club Readers!!!

I know, I know, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Fit Meals Monday meal plan. Sorry about that. In honor of the Olympics, I’m calling this the Olympic Fit Meals Monday edition. No other reason. I hope you enjoyed my post about the opening ceremonies, called “What the? Thoughts on the Olympic Opening Ceremony From an Olympian.” If you haven’t checked it out, make sure you read it and leave a comment about what you thought about London’s Opening Ceremony.

Here’s what the Davis family will be having this week.

Hot Tip:

When I planned this meal plan I looked at our local sales papers and designed meals based off of what was on sale in the fresh food and organic food departments. For instance chicken, red bell peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, avocados, corn, apples, lettuce, berries and more are on sale this week.  So you’ll see a lot of fresh berries in my meal plan and veggies in the dishes.  A friend gave me some kale from her SIL’s garden, and I have some things from my garden to add as well, plus some meat for carne asada already in the freezer from a few weeks ago. I also had some leftover toppings for a Chinese Chicken Salad from this weekend so I’ll be making another salad with it Monday.  Because of all of this, my grocery bill should be extremely reasonable this week. :)

Just for you all, I’ll post my recipe for my veggie tuna salad this week! :) Feel free to print out this meal plan and use it as your own any time or just get ideas! Who couldn’t use some new ideas. Enjoy.

Important NOTE:

The following meal plan is a screen shot.  The links on the screen shot will not work. You must Download the meal plan in order for the links to the recipes to work. Don’t worry it’s FREE! :)  Click here for the live link and printable version of the Meal Plan for the Week of July 30.
