Seeking healthy choices after the holiday!

Thirty weeks into this pregnancy and holiday heavy along with 15 extra pounds from baby and I'm in desparate need of a healthier menu!!! Today's headlines talk of diet and cutting back, but all I really need are some healthier alternatives!!  Hoping to find some inspiration I ventured to my favorite meal plan site and was not let down.  It is amazing to me that even during the previous week of Christmas dinners and out to eating galore there are some die-hard meal planners with a mission of health!  Armed with a fantastic new website Plan to Eat recommended by the fabulous Org Junkie!!! I began to plan this weeks health conscience menu!  I hope you all have had a fantastic first part of 2010!


Saturday - Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder with Cornbread

Sunday - Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs with Ceasar Salad  

Monday - Left overs!

Tuesday - Chicken Stir Fry and Egg Rolls

Wednesday - Asparagus CousCous and Green beans

Thursday - Kaitlynn's choice: hot dogs, carrots and fruit

Friday - Taco soup and tortilla chips

Saturday - Grilled chicken and hummus sandwiches with chips 

Links to this week's main courses:

Highlight recipe of last week goes to: My Mom's chowder!  I hope that everyone has the chance to try out this recipe during these cold days of winter! A suggestion for those who like a thick chowder - boil your potatoes until fork tender before adding your other ingredients and cooking for the recommended time.  

Photos for the week: The first 3 are from last night, Kait and Daddy at bedtime, the next is Kaitie this morning - first day back to school after break! And then of course is the snow! If you don't already know, snow in Hope is a rare occurrence! The cat - Tiger Styx didn't quite know what to think of it.
