Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 6/16 - 6/22)

I'm back from vacation (more on that thru this week) and I'm ready to try to find whatever normal will be for us for the summer.  I know menu planning is going to be key because I will be very busy playing with the three boys and keeping them from killing each other.

We ate a ton of great food the past 2 weeks including some NJ staples last week like Wawa hoagies, pizza, bagels and BBQs with friends.  I'm thankful we had so many people feeding us such great food last week.  I'm also thankful that I didn't have to cook for the past 2 weeks!  I overate all week and am feeling it now, very sluggish and tired (although that could be from a week of camping).  I'm back to eating healthy for the rest of the summer.

I'll share more about my weight loss plans for the summer on Weds in my workout blog, but today I'll share my food goals.  My goal is to be under my calorie goal every day from tomorrow (6/16) thru the day before we leave for Disney (8/27) with 2 exceptions...Jazz & Rib Fest and Ohio State fair day.

So with that in mind, here's what's on my menu this week to keep me under my calorie goal.  Some of them may seem higher in calories, but those are on days when I will work out for 2 hours or more.

Monday, 6/16 - Buffalo Meatloaf Muffins
Tuesday, 6/17 - Sesame Chicken over cauliflower rice
Wednesday, 6/18 - Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons (Relish recipe)
Thursday, 6/19 - Potato Pancakes (Relish recipe)
Friday, 6/20 - Peach Shrimp (Relish recipe)
Saturday, 6/21 - Flatbreads
Sunday, 6/22 - Beef Tostados (Relish recipe)

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness.  Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!
