Weekly Menu Plan – October 22, 2012

Welcome to the last full week of October! If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to enter to win the EVOL Foods giveaway – it ends in 2 days!! Yesterday I ran in the Nationwide Columbus Half Marathon and had a blast. I will have a race recap up soon, but must tell you that I have found the best way to gain crowd support during a race – wear a tutu:


This week’s menu plan will hopefully be followed a little better than the past few weeks. It has really be a struggle lately, so I am pledging here, in cyberspace, to stick to my plan this week. Any one else struggle with this? I know half of the battle is planning, but I need to follow through.

Monday – Leftover mac & cheese with tuna and salad
Tuesday – Mexican pizzas with black beans and corn, salad
Wednesday – Bourbon chicken, coconut baked brown rice, broccoli and salad
Thursday – Bison or turkey burgers, steak fries and salad
Friday – Make your own pizza and salad
Saturday – Take out

What did you do this past weekend?  Do you meal plan?  If so, how do you stick to it?

  • Thanks for your awesome inspiration! I love reading your weekly menu plans. This past weekend I attended the funeral of my best friend, who passed away very very unexpectedly – and also cleaned up the veggie garden to put it to bed for the winter.
    I try to meal plan dinners for 2-3 weeks at a time, buying all but the fresh produce in one big trip so I have it all on hand. Like you, some weeks are easier to stick to the plan than others, but I make sure I at least make a meal from the menu, even if I take from different weeks or whatever. That way I know I have what I need, and don't have to make many last minute runs to the grocery store. Luckily, eating out is not an option because aside from 3 of us with celiac (my 5.5 yr old daughter, 7 yr old son, and likely myself) or gluten intolerance (my 9.75 yr old son and fiance), we have dairy allergy or intolerance, and my daughter has a total of 20 food allergies… lol
    Congrats on your half marathon! My fiance and I were gonna do one in SC in Dec, but due to injuries and illness, need to push it back to Dec 2013.

    Looking forward to your race recap especially since I ran Columbus too! I looked for you but didn't see you…not sure how I missed the tutu though ;)

    Hope you aren't as sore as I was on Monday!
