menu plan monday: 01.28.13

Last week’s menu plan was left on the roadside pretty quickly when the flu showed up at our house.

It was fun.

I kept the pressure cooker going with bone broth, and I think that helped me keep from getting sick (along with my Whole30 eating and exercise). Score one for real food!

This week, I’m thinking easy. We seem to have stumbled into a little busy season. I’m on my last few days of this Whole30. My plan is to take a bit of a break on Wednesday (pancakes!) and get back to another round on Thursday. I need to do a little experimenting with nightshades, and the Whole30 seems to be the best place to do that from.

If you want to take a peek at my menu planning process I wrote it up here, along with how I use Pinterest to help.

Monday (late doctor’s appt./church meeting)
Slow Cooker Shredded Beef

Tuesday (allergy shots)
The best chicken you’ll ever eat (yeah, it’s really, really good – marinate in the morning)
Sweet Potato Fries
Pressure Cooker Braised Kale and Carrots

Easy Peasy Pancakes
Scrambled Eggs

Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein (prep in the morning)
White Rice (cooked in bone broth – for the family)

Butter Chicken
Cauliflower Rice (me)
White Rice (the kids)
Steamed Broccoli


No clue. Really.  I think I’m out of ideas. Anything good and easy you can recommend?

What’s on your menu this week?

  2. I am loving your cabbage instead of noodles idea. And that chicken. With a name like that, you know I must try it. :) Bone broth just the thing to keep healthy – I love that, too and keep and ongoing crock with it this time of year. And garlic – lots of garlic. :) Keeps away colds and vampires – LOL! Thanks for joining in on the Gluten Free Menu Swap. I hope you have a wonderful week!

    • I’ve been making at batch of bone broth at least once a week, and I think that, coupled with my diet and exercise, has helped this to be a far milder flu than what the rest of my family came down with. Lots of garlic too!

  3. We are having fajitas this week, too! :) Yummm. I also find pinterest helpful in meal planning! I’m off to read your post about it :)

    I found you through Jo-Lynne’s link up!
