Meal Plan – 1/13 – 1/19

Here is my meal plan for this week.  If any of the recipes turn out great, I will be sharing them in future posts.  If you want any of the recipes before I have a chance to see if they are good, just ask and I will add them πŸ™‚  Some meals are pathetic, and please keep in mind I am trying to get away from processed food, but I am not going to quit cold turkey.

These are just main dish plans.  So it doesn’t seem like enough food, but fruits and veggies will be added, as well as rice or pasta when it fits the meal.

I also plan to serve a big salad right before dinner, so Michael and I can fill up on salad before we eat the main meal.

Sunday 1/13
Breakfast: Breakfast Smoothie
Lunch: Probably something crappy like raviolis or ramen
Dinner: Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Monday 1/14
B: Banana Blueberry Smoothie
L: Caesar Tortellini
D: Penne with Spinach Sauce

Tuesday 1/15
B: Fruit and Cheese (pretty much just what it says)
D: Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast

Wednesday 1/16
B: Breakfast Burritos
L: Ultimate Chicken-Pasta Salad
D: Teriyaki Steak Lettuce Wraps

Thursday 1/17
B: Green Smoothie (never tried a green smoothie, we will see how gross it is…)
L: Tuna Sandwich
D: Baked Pork Chops

Friday 1/18
B: Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
L: Popcorn Party Day (I watch a movie with the girls and we eat popcorn, cheese, fruits and veggies)
D: Frozen Pizza

Saturday 1/19
B: Sweet Peach Smoothie
D: Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Chicken Breast (Yes, I know its already planned for Tuesday, but I can’t really make a portion for two people in a slow cooker, and I can’t really have it sit in the fridge for a couple weeks either.  Hopefully its not gross.)

SparkRecipes.  Almost all of them were “diet recipes” so they used non-fat milk, yogurt, mayonnaise, etc.  I would rather have the extra calories and get all the goodness of the fat, along with less chemicals and processing.

  1. Rachel, did you like the Broiled Tilapia Parmesan? I tried it tonight (the recipe off the site you posted). We loved it. I made a little too much "sauce" because I only did 3 fillets, but it was way better than the other way I make tilapia. And it took much less time. It's a keeper for us. Hope you guys enjoyed it too. I really like the site you mentioned, I have found many recipes I want to try already there. Tomorrow night I am going to try Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas.

  2. I ended up having the salmon recipe I had planned for a different day. Michael is being a little unenthusiastic about my getting back into meal planning. For instance tonight we were supposed to have Penne with Spinach Sauce but ended up switching for Friday's frozen pizza 😦 He isn't digging the "diet food" I am making. I have had the Broiled Tilapia Parmesan quite a few times (from various websites, not the exact recipe), and its actually one that we both really like. I always end up with a little to much sauce too. The salmon I made was really gross actually, and we ended up just scraping the sauce off and giving it to the dog, and eating the fish plain.

  3. Oh sad about your salmon. It is so discouraging (to me at least) when I finally try something new and it doesn't turn out like I thought it would taste. I went shopping at Waremart today (with my coupon)and got a bunch of staples I was running low on and some ingredients I didn't have for recipes I want to try.
