What's For Dinner? Week of 10/28/2013

Hi Everyone!

This week I'm going to try something new and we'll see how it goes.  I am a HUGE planner and meal planning takes up A LOT of my time.  I spend at least 2 hours on the weekend just coming up with a menu for the week, as well time spent shopping for everything and any prep that's needed - sometimes, it's literally an 8 hour event!!  If you have an easier way of doing this, please PLEASE share it with me!

And, since this is something I do every single week, AND many of you have asked me to share my weekly meal plans, I thought this would be a great way to do it!

It'll be a work in progress so bear with me!  If there are any recipes you'd like to share with me, please leave a comment below.  I am typically working out after work, so you'll see my dinners are quick and easy most of the time!

Have a healthy and happy week!

Weekly Meal Plan
Week of 10/28/2013
Rotisserie Chicken or Turkey with green beans
I have training and THEN have to hit the grocery store afterwards, so it’s a grab and go meal tonight!  Rotisserie chicken is a great, quick, grab and go meal and the protein it provides is great for after workout muscle repair!
Nathan's all beef hot dogs, broccoli and cauliflower (organic mac & cheese for the Hubs)
Body Pump after work, so another quick dinner!
Spaghetti Squash and Italian meat sauce
Cardio after work and this is an easy one, too:
I made a quick roasted tomato sauce a few weeks back with my tomatoes & threw it in the freezer, so that's what we're having with some ground beef, toss it with some squash and viola!
Slow cooker pulled chicken with quinoa
Happy Halloween!  A girlfriend of mine is making this and coming over to hand out candy to the kids - can't wait!  Our hubs will be super excited about this dinner!
Leftovers or Dinner Out
I very rarely plan meals for Friday nights because by the end of the week, I'm done...we usually play it by ear and if there are leftovers, great - if not, we head out for a "mostly" healthy dinner!
Last week, we had steaks at home with mushrooms and onions!

Note:  for breakfast and lunch, I keep things really simple.  Mostly egg white scrambles with whatever veggies I have in the house, or egg casserole (4 out of 5 days, this is what I have for breakfast).  Lunches are typically big ass salads made from veggies and any leftovers from the night before or tuna with cottage cheese and organic carrots and cukes.  And, if I have a fun recipe to share with you, I definitely will!

So there you have it!!  Hope this is helpful to you!!
