Fall is my favorite season and, therefore, always seems to fly by. I can't believe it's already the middle of September! Days are (marginally) cooler, nights are definitely cooler, and on weekend mornings I can have my coffee outside and actually feel a little chilly. That doesn't stop me from sitting outside, as I LOVE to feel the weather turning cooler. But hubby was actually shivering this morning! I laughed, because it was only 68, so I could not dredge up a lot of sympathy!
So, on to this week's menu plan. We are finally getting back to a more routine life, and this week is all about eating well and getting back into working out. We'll take advantage of some of the meal kits I made a few weeks ago, and I'm brown-bagging lunch each day except for Wednesday (standing lunch with friends). I'm also bringing out a few of our cooler weather favorites, and I'm culling through favorite recipes for cooler months to add to upcoming plans.
To help with eating well, I'm also going to post my breakfasts and lunches to keep me on track mentally. Here's the plan:
Monday (workout night): Breakfast - Chocolate Protein Smoothie Lunch - Pepper Jack Club Pita with Avocado; Grapes Dinner - Chicken Broccoli Braid (a true one-dish favorite!)
Tuesday (cooking night): Breakfast - Herbed Egg Omelette Sammy Lunch - Same Pita as Monday; Peach Dinner - Cajun Meatloaf (I literally crave this once a week now), Creamy Bow Tie Pasta (a new one to try), Garlicky Green Beans
Wednesday (workout night): Breakfast - Smoothie Lunch - with friends Dinner - leftover Cajun Meatloaf and Pasta
Thursday (cooking night): Breakfast - Omelette Sammy Lunch - Meatloaf or Club Pita; Grapes Dinner - Tilapia with Baby Limas
Friday (I need to workout, so let's call this a workout night too!): Breakfast - Smoothie Lunch - Honey Roasted PB&J; Peach Dinner - Pepper Steak with Rice
Saturday: No idea what we'll eat for the day yet - but we're going to see Journey with some friends. Can't wait!!
Happy week to all, and for more menu inspiration, head on over to Orgjunkie!
