Menu Plan Monday: Cheap Meals, No Wheels
|Menu Plan Monday hosted by Orgjunkie.com|
So it's time to get back to eating clean. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to eat healthy on a budget. And to keep me on budget, I'll be walking to the grocery store and sticking to my list because I have to carry home whatever I buy.
I have my daughter with me this week, so there will be two cranky ladies in the house going through minor carb withdrawal. Maybe I should make this gluten-free chocolate cake too ...
And now, for the food.
Monday: Avocado Strawberry Salad with Citrus Marinated Chicken Thighs (around $10)
Tuesday: Thai Red Curry Chicken (around $8)
Wednesday: White Bean and Sausage Saute (I have all ingredients on hand, so this is a freebie)
Thursday: Beef Broccoli (around $6-$10 depending on cut of meat)
Friday: Cajun Salmon with steamed mixed veggies (around $10-20 depending on fresh or frozen salmon. I get frozen).
Each of these meals will make enough food for at least 4 servings, so I should be able to have a hot lunch most days as well, provided my daughter isn't still on her growth spurt and eating like a teenage boy...
What are you eating this week?
