Not that we eat perfectly by any means, but perhaps last week’s menu will spark some ideas for you. Our favorites were the Pot Roast and Chicken Noodle Soup. I’ll try to post the homemade Pot Roast recipe soon (although I didn’t get pictures).
Monday: Homemade Whole Wheat Mac and Cheese, Roasted Vegetables, salad
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Pot Roast (with potatoes, carrots, celery, onion), Whole Wheat & Oat Bread (made in bread machine), salad, mango slices
Thursday: (small group night; kids only) Egg Sandwiches (with sneaky grated carrots and fresh minced parsley), Bright Red Juice, and clementines
Friday: Chicken Noodle Soup, whole wheat bread (store-bought), veggies & homemade hummus, apple slices
Saturday: Cheesy Chicken, Brown Rice, and Broccoli Casserole, peas, kiwi fruit
A friend/mentor of mine, whom I admire greatly for her “healthy family focus” among many other stellar qualities, reminded me yesterday to strive to feed my family healthy foods 80% of the time so we can enjoy the indulgences 20%. That’s my goal around here, although I know I fail many times. A few small steps forward is better than no attempts at change, I say. Keep at it, friends!
