Healthy Weekly Meal Plan | Mom's Menu | Large Family


Okay, did any of ya'll make any of the recipes I gave you last week?

If you follow me on IG and FB, you know that I altered the recipe that was supposed to be Spicy Asian Zucchini Noodles (couldn't find almond butter at my farmers market) and ended up just stir frying the veggies and putting a little alfredo sauce on them. And they were loved by all!!

But I think the Vegan Pho was the grand slam of the week.

I really think you need to try it!!

In fact, let me know if you do make it!! We had never had Pho before, so we were all nervous to even try it...but, boy, are we glad we did!!

I didn't end up making the Pesto Spaghetti, so I may make it this week...we'll see. Maybe instead of the freezer meal...hmm...

I'm now 31 weeks along in this pregnancy (Baby #5, yo!) and as much as I would looove easy packaged recipes, I just can't do it. I actually WANT to eat healthy whole foods, so there ya have it. I just have to get over this exhaustion and waddle my big ol' belly into the kitchen and deal with it. hahaha

Here is this week's healthy meal plan:
(Grocery & Farmers Market haul videos will be up soon!)

BREAKFAST CHOICES

Yogurt with dried mango or papaya

Cantaloupe

PB Banana Smoothies

LUNCH & SNACK OPTIONS

(either cheese cubes, a cheese stick or a mini Babybel wheel)
