Menu Plan Monday

We ended up going out to eat a lot last week. I can’t believe what a bad habit we’ve gotten ourselves into! “We will not go out to eat this week!” “We will not go out to eat this week!” (If I say it enough times, maybe I will begin to live it out…!)

We’ve been spending money on frivolous food that is not good for our bodies or our bank account and I AM SICK OF IT.

How do we save money and move toward healthier eating? I’m not sure, but I do know that just not eating out will be a step toward health.

Here’s the At-Home-I-Promise Menu for the week. Check Org Junkie for lots more ideas.


Breakfast — Homemade Sourdough English Muffins (yum, oh, yum — these were good!) with homemade grape jelly; scrambled eggs with cheese

Lunch — Leftover Chicken and Veggie Soup, Sourdough Toast, Yogurt with blueberries

Dinner — Chicken Caesar Salad with Red Potato Fries

Lunch — Quesadillas, Apple Slices w/ Almond Butter
