Ok so I don’t ever use the word “ya’ll” but I just had to throw it in there after returning from my amazing two nights away in Austin, TX for a bachelorette party. I haven’t had a chance to write about my trip since I just got back yesterday afternoon (and was in bed by 7:00pm ha ha), but I wanted to do a quick Monday Meal Plan post. I will also quickly say that Austin was AWESOME, and since I’m on the subject of food I must say how impressed I was by our wining and dining experience there. I had totally planned to cheat on eating healthy by diving into some southern comfort food but let me tell you, I had such a misconception of eating out in Austin.
Did you know Austin is actually ranked in the top 10 healthiest cities to live in? I sure didn’t! The food was wonderful…organic…fresh…healthy…and delicious!! At one restaurant the bartender actually apologized for the only drink on their menu that had some syrup in it because everything else on their menu was completely fresh and natural. I was so impressed! It was as though all the restaurants there are trying to outdo one another by being the healthiest. So, thank you Austin!! I really did want to indulge this weekend, but you didn’t even allow me the opportunity to do so.
Now that I’m back, and my Austin fog is lifting, I am trying to jump right back into our Monday routine. Although I should probably start by unpacking my suitcase, I know that our refrigerator needs some restocking first. Here is what I have on the lineup for this week’s clean eating Meal Plan Monday menu!
Monday- Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Tuesday- Ground turkey and veggie chili
Wednesday- Pineapple pork kabobs
Thursday- Zucchini Turkey burgers with sauteed onions and sweet potatos
Friday- Mushroom Chicken marinara over spaghetti squash
Saturday- Dinner out with the fam
Sunday- Shredded Salsa chicken – tacos or salad
I’m excited to try a few new recipes this week and I think the boys are too! Happy Monday everyone and I hope your week is off to a great start!
