Weekly Meal Plan 11/4

Avoiding the "Holiday Bulge" - Thanksgiving/ChristmasWith 23 days until Thanksgiving, it’s time to hunker down and stay consistent with home-cooked healthy meals.  I love the holidays and the traditions of family gathering and eating, mostly the pie…and mashed potatoes with manchego…and gravy…and, well I guess everything.

So my prevention is planning ahead so as to not get stuck with the ol’ conversation of

“what’s for dinner?”

“I don’t know, I don’t have anything thawed”

“Well then, let’s order pizza”

sound familiar?

 

Here’s my weekly meal plan for this week:

Monday – roasted trout with roasted asparagus and couscous.

Tuesday – Potato soup with white chicken (the pioneer woman)

Wednesday – shrimp jambalaya (cooks illustrated) with steamed broccoli

Thursday – beer & BBQ braised pork with brown rice and salad

Friday – leftovers

Saturday – ground turkey tacos
