HEALTHY MENU PLANNING!

Happy Tuesday!

for starters, I would like to ask you all to please pray for this sweet family. They have two boys named Griffin and Logan and both have been diagnosed with a fatal genetic disease called Alpers Syndrome. You can read more about it here. THIS FAMILY NEEDS OUR PRAYERS! Can you imagine losing two children? I cannot. I have cried like a baby all morning every time I think about this story. This is when faith is tested. Please pass this on and let everyone you know about this family!!! Ask them ALL to pray! Let's show them how much we love them and COVER them in prayer. 

In a totally different direction, how many of you menu plan each week? Now that Stephen is home more with his new job, I am starting to plan more of our meals. Stephen is very traditional in that he likes a FULL supper every night, complete with dessert. He runs 30-40 miles a week, so he can eat whatever he wants. Not mama over here. SIGH. But I still try and cook healthy and be conscious of fat and calories. Sometimes this goes OUT the window when dessert and wine are involved. Ha. I try limit both of those. Some nights I succeed better than others! 

Here are some regulars on our rotation:

We have designated Monday as "Meatless". This usually means I cook one of these entrees:












I try my best to not drink during the week. Sometimes I have a half a glass of wine, and that is it. But some nights my kids are making me lose my flipping mind, fighting over toys and busting lips, and arguing, and.... its a tad more. As in, like, half a bottle. Or two. I kid, I kid. But you get my drift...

Okay, so here are some regulars on Tuesday thru Sunday!
























For sides, I do LOTS of  steamed veggies!! Don't have a steamer? BUY ONE! They are a great investment, under $50 for a top of the line model,  and they also can make brown rice! There is NO clean up! I repeat. No cleanup=Come to mama. 

I have this one: 



Also, I am IN LOVE with this salad dressing;

You can find it at any major grocery store, even Wal-Mart. 

Tomorrow....DESSERT!

As for the food I do a ton of grilling in the summer. One of my favorites is Cayenne Rubbed Chicken that I discovered on this blog last summer http://valsocal.blogspot.com/ . She has awesome recipes. A lot of healthy things and some indulgences. I love the Meatless Monday recipes! I also try to limit meat meals to 3-4 times a week and now I'll definitely have to work in some of those. Thanks!

Grilled tomatoes with cheese? Yes please.

Recipes look great! But you should use catfish instead of tilapia. Catfish is most of the time local from the Southeast, while tilapia generally comes from Asia. Go more local when you can!

Sweet chili lime chicken looks so fab! My husby requires the whole dinner thing too...which I think is fun since I love to cook and I always live to check out new healthy recipes!
