“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: January 25-31

"Real Food Meets Reality" Menu Plan

A major key to eating healthier and saving money is meal planning. When I plan my meals, I feel less stress throughout the week, spend less time and money at the grocery store, and usually serve my family a fairly well-rounded diet throughout the week. My hope is that my mostly “real food” meal plans each Saturday will help you do the same!


Sunday: Homemade Chicken Nuggets*, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, Crock Pot Cinnamon Apples

*Double the nugget recipe and use leftover chicken to top the Cobb Salad on Tuesday night.

Monday10 Minute Tortilla Soup, chips/raw veggies with Creamy Avocado Dip, grapes

TuesdayChicken Cobb Salad, fruit salad (Note: For picky eaters, serve the salad ingredients separately.)

Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner: Baked Oatmeal*, scrambled eggs, pear slices

*Double and freeze the extras as a Freezer Meal for the future.

Thursday: Leftovers/clean out the fridge night

FridaySlow Cooker Whole Wheat Spinach Lasagna, Wheat Rolls, green beans, apple slices

Saturday: Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned Rub, Oven Fries, steamed baby carrots, mixed berries

Breakfast Ideas:

Banana Brownie Waffles

Baked Egg Cups (maybe on whole wheat English muffins)

Breakfast Cookies*

*Double and freeze the extras as a Freezer Meal for the future.


Powerball Cookies

banana boats (hollow out like a canoe and fill with peanut/almond butter or cream cheese)

frozen peas (seriously…my kids love these)
