Menu Planning for the week

I love menu planning and grocery shopping. I love knowing that the food I cook is going to be appreciated by my family, and used for their good health. Because of my health issues, the vegan lifestyle is the best for me. I do have honey, since it's local and helps my allergies. Other than that, I don't have any animal products, except occasionally eggs. Yes, I do this for a while, then start feeling great, and letting chicken and fish back into my diet. Next thing you know, I am eating burgers from fast food and feeling awful. So, I am going vegan again. The last straw was my son getting sick from fast food. He shudders when we pass by that restaurant now. We are always dairy free, but the rest creeps in. It is now time to get back to basics.

Here's the coming week's menu. Our lunches tend to be leftovers from dinner, so unless there's something different planned. All dinners have salad with them.

Thursday - Breakfast - toast and coffee (so not giving up coffee this time)
Dinner - Rice and Quinoa tacos

Friday - Breakfast - steel cut oats. I'm trying a new crock pot recipe.
Dinner - Jamaican Red Pea Soup

Saturday - Breakfast - fruit, toast
Dinner - leftovers from tacos or soup

Sunday - Breakfast - fruit, toast
Dinner - vegan chow fun, steamed dumpling

Monday - Breakfast - fruit, oatmeal
Dinner - Pancake dinner at school (I have our own recipe that I'll take for the non-dairy folks. I'm organizing the dinner.)

Tuesday - Breakfast - fruit, oatmeal or toast
Lunch - tuna pasta salad for the kids, salad for John and me
Dinner - Sweet potato burritos

Wednesday - Breakfast - fruit, toast
Dinner - Red Beans and Rice - yes, this can be vegan too.

Well, that's it for now. I'll post recipes as I go along. I'm still trying to decide the direction of this blog. It's not clear to me what I'm supposed to do, but am sure God will show me. Right now, I'm going to hang out with my husband for a bit then hit the bed. It's been a long week so far. Michael's been sick and I'm fighting it off too. Have a great night all!
