This Week's Menu

John and I are swinging on the healthy side these weeks. What that means for us, which is different for all of us, is that we are pushing ourselves to eat more salads and stop snacking at night. We're laying off sweets. We feel so much better. I'm still struggling to find a healthy place with food, so I welcome advice and words of wisdom. For this week, here's what we're eating:

Black beans & rice with all the fun toppings
Bean & bacon soup, salad
Fettuccine bolognese, salad, bread (making this for a crowd coming for dinner)
Pinto beans, sweet potato, sauteed squash, steamed broccoli
Tostadas, kidney bean/avocado salad

  1. I have struggled with food too. I have finally gotten to a point where it is easier to eat better because I feel better when I do. We have 5 kids and number 6 is on the way. I feel better about feeding them healthy foods. I generally shop the perimeter of the stores and hit the veggie stand in the summer. Lots of water. I don't feel guilty when I have treats because I know that the majority of the time we eat healthy. We have lettuce salad with homemade dressing almost every night. We always eat together and all the kids get a little of everything. You know it is working when your 20 month old wants seconds of salad!
