Menu Plan Monday!

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?

    I love how motivated some of my favorite bloggers are this month. It is really inspiring me. I actually planned out my meals for the week over the weekend. On the menu is a Southwestern Soup(edible perspective), Dill Tofu (Oh She Glows), rice and beans and veggie pizza made with Biz’s no rise pizza dough. I have the soup simmering now. I just baked up a batch of vegan corn bread muffins to be served with the soup. My kitchen smells delicious.

    Good luck this week!
