Weekly meal plan {6-10-2013}

You guys…I had PIZZA on Saturday after the race.  Like real, cheesy, sausage and pepperoni pizza.  I’m not going to lie, while I have grown accustomed to clean eating and love the foods we eat, that pizza tasted like a little slice of heaven.   I was totally famished after the mud run that I probably could have eaten an entire large pie by myself, but I refrained.  It really is all about moderation, the occasional indulgence, and not feeling deprived of some of your favorite treats.  Of course my stomach was pissed at me the next day, but that’s ok we are just going to fill it up with lots of healthy things this week to make it happy again.



Here is what we have lined up for this week’s clean eating meal plan:

Monday- Curry chicken & veggie kabobs on the grill with a tomato & olive salad.

Tuesday- Pesto chicken sausage with sauteed peppers & onions

Wednesday- Shredded zucchini turkey burgers with sweet potato wedges {I follow the listed recipe only I grate a small zucchini into the meal to sneak some veggies in for the kids and keep the burgers from being dry}

Thursday- Artichoke, garbanzo bean and veggie Greek salads with oregano, EVOO, and lemon juice dressing

Friday- Balsamic, basil and roma tomato chicken bake over brown rice pasta

Saturday- Shredded chicken taco salads

Sunday- VACATION!!  (going away to Palm Springs for a 2 night family getaway) And just because we are going away doesn’t mean we can’t eat healthy.  My friend Samantha just wrote a great post on how she did traveling while on the Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  She’s already down 7lbs and has a week left.  I couldn’t be more proud of her!!

As for lunch this week my friend Liz e-mailed me this morning and asked if I wanted to do the 14 day green smoothie challenge .  While I don’t think I can commit to it this week with our mini trip coming up, she did inspire me to go green this whole week for lunch.  I stocked up on tons of fruits, almond milk, Chia seeds, and kale and will be blending up something fun for lunch every day this week.  Join me if you can….you just replace one meal with a green smoothie and that’s it!

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!  Have a happy & healthy week! xo

    Always look forward to and love these posts of yours… I get so many meal ideas from you! Pinned those turkey burgers – excited to add in some zucchini. I’m always looking for new grilling recipes to bring to the pool with us!

    Have a GREAT time on your mini vacation! So much fun!
