Monday Meal Planning - gone healthy..sort of.

If you're anything like me, you overindulged this past week. And if you didn't, just pretend you did. It'll make me feel better.  This week we're going healthy (or relatively healthy). Light on the cream and heavy on flavor. Most of these recipes are also really quick and easy. Bonus!

Meatless Monday: Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers and Cucumber Salad with Mint and Feta

Taco Tuesday: Turkey Tacos Picadillo - the only change I would make it to obviously not fry the tortillas and to use whole wheat instead of corn.

Wednesday: Spicy Beef and Asparagus Stir Fry serve this with brown rice. Trader Joe's makes an awesome organic version that's frozen. Takes three minutes to cook in the microwave.

Thursday: Sesame Seared Tuna with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette

Friday: Chipotle Grilled Chicken and Avocado Sandwich - (grill extra chicken w/ out spices for Sunday's dinner)

Saturday: Soba Noodle Salad and Grilled Flank Steak

Sunday: Chicken Caprese and Strawberry Spinach Salad To drink: Hibiscus Coolers

Happy Monday! I have to go hide the rest of the Easter candy from myself..



  1. (Found your blog through Angela!) THANK YPU for posting that hibiscus cooler - the iced passion tea at Starbucks is a personal fav. Pretty excited to make it at home! PS: I am making the Green Goddess Panini + Blue Cheese Tomato Soup tonight thanks to your links a few weeks back!

  2. Thanks for stopping by! I'm a little obsessed with that iced passion tea myself. And I'm totally jealous that you're having the panini and soup for dinner! yummm. Hope you like it!
