menu plan monday: 05.13.13

Good morning, friends!

We’ve got four weeks of school left. I think I might be more excited than the kids. We’ve got big summer plans, and I can’t wait!

I’ve had a couple of weeks of fibromyalgia flare up, but I think I’m finally feeling better (the key: magnesium). There hasn’t been a lot of planning or cooking or eating well going on around here and that’s changing this week.   I’m also hoping to get back to walking and daily yoga and the rest of my May goals while still keeping those much needed margins.

I’m doing a little modified green smoothie cleanse for a few days – which basically means green smoothies for breakfast and lunch and a regular dinner.  And since smoothies don’t do well as the only thing in my stomach, I might make a batch of The Civilized Caveman’s Paleo Banana Bread (as muffins) to have with them. That is one crazy good banana bread recipe, whether you’re paleo or not.

Still working on figuring out how to plan your own menu? I’ve got a few posts about that!

We’ve also been using eMeals for the past month or so and I’m finding the paleo plan really hit or miss for us…but a little heavier on the miss. I think I’m going to switch to the clean eating one next week and see if that’s a better fit.

Here’s this week’s plan:

Grilled Chicken
Grilled Squash Ribbons (skipping the prosciutto and probably basting with a vinaigrette instead of serving with a dipping sauce)

Grilled…whatever I have in the freezer
Baked Potatoes
Hancock Salad

Pappers and Zucchini in Foil (or maybe just stir fried, probably minus the potatoes)

Carne Asada 
Corn Tortillas (for those that eat them)

Going to see Star Trek: Cumberbatch after school is out, so dinner out

Cousin’s Wedding

Paleo Swedish Pancakes
