Menu plan: January 17- 23

This weekend we got a lot of baking and cooking done and even a little cleaning! This past Friday, I decided to finally make the dive into whole foods and not look back. My good friend Courtney wrote two GREAT posts about first taking the plunge and not looking back and second about their progress.

Well Friday our family took the plunge. Now I would not be telling the truth if I told you it was totally easy. If fact quite the opposite was true. As I threw all my really bad HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) away, I was dreading the fact that I might never have chocolate milk again. But we perservered and we really ate some healthy and yummy  foods. I was pleasantly surprised at how many steps I had already taken not knowing about Traditional Foods. As I was making my menu plan for this week, I was starting to get excited - We are going to be eating healthy and YUMMY foods!

banana bread (recipe coming soon)
soup and sandwiches
spaghetti with garlic bread

applesauce bread
tacos, rice, beans, and salsa

Kefir Smoothies, fruit
jelly sandwiches, pretzels, mama's yummy trail mix

banana bread, yogurt, bananas
soup, pretzels

white chicken chili
corn dog muffins, oven fries, apple chips

applesauce bread
chicken stroganoff, green beans

daddy's dirty eggs, sausage, toast
salmon patties, macaroni and cheese

Anything catch your eye? It is going to be a week of tastey food and a new eating lifestyle!
