Menu Plan Monday

It's getting harder to come up with easy, cheap "veggie" meals. We are not vegetarian but are trying to eat to lose those post-partum pounds (both hubby and myself!) I have come up with a few recipes that I love but I feel like there's just only so much you can do with seasoned veggies. Here's what I've managed for this week:

1. Salad w/Craisins and Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
2. Kung Pao Tofu (never actually made this from last week, so I'm trying again!)
3. Soup and Veggie Sandwich on Homemade Bread
4. Salad tossed with Flax Seed Dressing
5. Salmon Fillet with Tasty Sauce

For snacks we have:

1. Homemade Granola mixed with Soy Yogurt
2. Fruit Smoothies
3. Fruit Salad

Here's my Fruit Smoothie Recipe:

Banana, Frozen Strawberries, Frozen Blueberries, Milled Flax Seed, Soy Milk and Honey. I just eye-ball how much of each to put in, making sure to use enough Soy Milk that the blender will churn up the ingredients. I also love honey so I use a lot of it. This makes a yummy smoothie that is very healthy.

Fruit Salad:

Chopped Cantaloupe, Chopped Honeydew, Grapes. Top ingredients with Honey and Lemon juice. Keep covered and refrigerated. Again I just eyeball all ingredients, I guess that makes me a bad recipe giver... :( Anyway it's still good!! :)

Please make sure you get sufficient protein with your veggie meals. It is possible, but you have to be intentional.
