April Meal Plan

In the past week or so, Hey, Babe and I decided to change how we eat a little.  We already avoid a lot of processed foods, but we are going to be making an effort to eliminate even more of them.  Things like white flour, white sugar, processed oils, etc. will be if not totally removed from our diet (I really like to bake and I don't want to give that up entirely) they will be drastically reduced.  I am curious to see how increasing our consumption of foods nearer to their natural form will alter our energy and health (both mental & physical).
It was a bit trickier for me to come up with a variety of foods that would work with this new tactic.  As you can see below, we didn't avoid them completely, but there is a significant lack of pasta and breads in the majority of our month's plan. 

Mon. Tues. Wed. Thur. Fri. Sat. Sun.

Potluck Dinner Chicken Pot Pie Chicken Stir Fry
Chicken Curry, Brown Rice Salisbury Steaks, Mashed Potatoes, Peas Salad Pizza Taco Salad Eggplant Parmesan Birthday Party Black Bean Soup
Chicken & Basil Roulades w/Mustard Sauce, Baked Squash, Green Beans Beef & Broccoli, Brown Rice Salmon Fish Sticks, Carrots & Peas Black Bean Mushroom Burgers, Roast Corn Pork Chops, Brown Rice, Broccoli BBQ Chicken stuffed in a loaded Baked Sweet Potato Sautéed Spinach w/Chickpeas & Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Roasted Potatoes
Chicken Cordon Bleu, Twice Baked Potatoes, Broccoli Fiesta Steak, Tomato Salad, Corn Pizza Taco Salad Vegetable Torta Greek Grilled Chicken Kebabs, Easter
Herb Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potatoes Stuffed Zucchini Cups Fish, Rice, Broccoli Potato Nachos Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes, Sauteéd Apples Chicken Florentine, Whole Wheat Pasta, Peas

It seems that this month my work will be more cut out for me.  It will be interesting to see the results of our efforts. Enjoy!


  1. Good job! I'm always happy when people talk about moving to a less processed and more healthy lifestyle.

  2. It's hard, sister! But it's a good step in the right direction (as opposed to a bad step in the right direction... or any step in the wrong direction...)
