Sweet Bean's Meal Plan

  This is the first of hopefully MANY meal plans. I'm hoping by figuring out ahead of time what we'll be eating for the week that it will help us save money, lose weight, and stop the notorious..."What's for dinner?" question! I'm going to be linking up to Menu Plan Monday over at You can find some wonderful stuff over there from tons of bloggers!
  My schedule as a full time nurse makes food difficult period. I envy (I know I shouldn't) those moms who can stay at home and cook. Right now my schedule is hectic, to say the least. I'm suppose to work 9am-7pm 4 times a week, but sometimes I'm pushed back and other times I'm there way past 7pm. *Sighs* I'm praying God will show me what I should be doing and praying even more that he'll provide me with a job that I can see my lil bean more often and have a more set schedule.'s this weeks plan:

breakfast: Yogurt with Granola & piece of fruit 
lunch: Guacatuna Salad in a lettuce leaf with a piece of fruit
dinner: Tilapia, Cracklin Cauliflower, & salad

lunch: Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Avocado & piece of fruit


breakfast: Yogurt with Granola
lunch: MIL's Vin & Oil Salad (recipe coming!) with Tuna Sandwich

lunch: Bangin Good Shrimp with basmati rice and leftover vegetables
dinner:  Broccoli Salad with Thai Peanut Sauce with chicken

breakfast: LEFTOVERS

breakfast: Huevos Rancheros 
lunch:Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken , crockpot baked potatoes, salad

SNACKS: fruit, 94% FF popcorn, raw veggies, nuts
DRINKS: WATER, WATER, WATER, hot tea, coffee, and...WATER!

For Lil G Bean: Along with what we eat I want to make these for her this week: Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

Blogs that Inspired my Menu: Let's Eat ~ The Happy Housewife ~ Green Lite Bites ~ 28 cooks ~Skinny Taste ~ What's For Dinner ~ How Sweet It Is ~ Simcoe Street ~

  This is an ambitious plan for a full time worker, but I'm up to the task! Since the hubs is not working currently I know he will help out if asked! I'll let you know what we liked and what we didn't like next week!
