Menu Plan for the Week
Last week was tough!  First week back after vacation, kids had VBS every night, I joined the gym, and it was the week before school starts.  There was a TON to do.  Blogging kind of fell by the wayside :-(   So did healthy eating, for the most part.  This week is likely to be just as hectic, but I spent ALL DAY TODAY in the kitchen prepping, so at least I’m ready in terms of food!  Meals here are THM coded as E (= Energizing), S (= Satisfying), and FP (= Fuel Pull).

Overnight oats w/ blueberries (E, X2)
Fat-free Greek yogurt with berries (FP, X2)
Ham and eggs (S, X2)
Sausage Frittata (S)

Fooled Ya Pizza (S, X2)
Lemon Pepper wings (S)
Salmon with green fries (S, X2)
Chicken flatbread wraps (FP, X2)

Tuna on romaine (FP, X2)
Chicken curry (S, X2)
Bean burritos (E, X2)
Fried cabbage and meatballs (S)

Greek yogurt and berries (FP)
Cucumber slices (FP)
Cottage berry whip (DP)
Wasa w/ laughing cow (FP)
Peanut butter fudge (S)
