Weekly Menu 12/3 - 12/7 | Large Family


I'm trying to keep things healthy but still easy enough that my teens can throw meals together with no trouble. They are getting pretty good at following recipes, so that's been a life saver for this pregnant mama!
I will clarify that although I am aiming for healthy options, I did not succeed for every meal. I had to take some shortcuts, such as premade frozen meatballs instead of homemade, due to financial reasons and my being 9 mos pregnant.

Since we homeschool, the kids are here for every meal.

If I end up having the baby this week, we will probably have a different dinner/meal plan for the day since we will also be having our midwife and doula join us for meals that day.

Breakfast Options

Oatmeal with almond milk
Homemade Coffee Cake Muffins with Goodie Maple Nut Shakes (sounds decadent but they are actually clean eating and gluten- and sugar-free)

Lunches

Monday & Friday: Macaroni & cheese with fruit & yogurt

Tuesday & Thursday: PB&J sandwiches with fruit & yogurt 

Wednesday: English muffin mini pizzas with fruit & yogurt

Snacks

Nutrigrain bars, pretzels and animal crackers

Dinners

Monday: Cheesy Chicken Cauliflower Soup with rolls

Tuesday: Meatball parmesan over pasta with green beans

Wednesday: ☆ Austin's Birthday Celebration - Eating Out ☆

Thursday: ♡ Date Night ♡ Kids will be eating macaroni and cheese with chicken nuggets

Friday: Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken Breasts over rice with corn
