PCRM’s 21 Day Kick-start starts today!!! I’m so excited for another 3 weeks of energized, joint pain-free, and deliciousness! Last night I sat down with my trusty vegan websites (post on those to come later), and planned out the entire week of meals, and I must say that my mouth was eager to get this week started.
I have to say that I have so much fun Menu Planning on Sunday nights! I love going to different websites and trying recipes that I have never tried. This week’s menu is making my mouth water. Here is what is on our menu in the Seals household:
Monday: Tomato Basil “Cream” Pasta with roasted broccoli
We tried this recipe a few weeks ago, and not only is it super tasty, but it is EASY to make! My little one LOVES tomato’s and the sauce is such a great tomato and “cream” sauce, you would never guess that it was dairy free!
Tuesday: Taco’s with Corn Salsa
In this salsa there is corn, orange pepper, purple onion, cilantro, lime, and garlic salt. I put it over black beans and serve in a corn shell. It is fast and totally curbs a craving for mexican fare.
Wednesday: Butternut Squash Soup with roasted cauliflower
The only thing I will have to change in this recipe is to swap out chicken broth for vegetable broth and voila! Vegan.
Thursday: Avocado Wasabi Salad
I am so serious when I say my mouth is full on watering by looking at this salad. Anything that involves avocado’s is a win in my book. And to think that before I met Dustin I didn’t like them. Craziness.
Friday: Roasted Veggie Pizza with “cheeze” Sauce. I will have to let you know how this one turns out. I am experimenting with a few different recipe’s and rolling them into one. We’ll see!
Saturday: Mushroom Risotto with Carmelized Onions
Sunday: Sunday gets tricky because it is Easter Sunday and we have already got invites to people from our church homes for dinner. The only thing I can think is to eat before I go over (most likely leftovers), and then I won’t be tempted to eat the things that usually derail me.
The rest of the weeks grocery list is getting things for smoothies, and snacks. I have been on a hummus wrap kick lately, and I will most likely have some version of that for lunch every day this week. I am so glad that I don’t mind eating the same things everyday!
Sweat it out:
I haven’t had a chance to sit down and come up with a workout plan, but I do know that I am going to do my FIRM DVD’s on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. In addition, I will also be taking a walk for at least 30 minutes everyday so I can get out of the house. Most of today I will be trekking down to Grand Junction and going food shopping to stock up the fridge for the week!
Have a great day!
What’s on the menu for you this week?
