Menu Plan Monday May 25 - 29

>> Monday, May 25, 2009

Happy Memorial Day to all my friends and family in the States. I hope that you all have a great day and I imagine many of you will be having or attending BBQ's today. Enjoy the extra day of the weekend. I love long weekends. I think we should have more of them ;).

This week's menu for the raw vegan part is going to be a bit different. I am still struggling trying to get back to the level of raw I was once doing. So I have decided rather than beat myself up for whatever cooked food I end up eating, I'm going to allow myself the opportunity to have cooked food at supper if I desire it. That was how I initially started on my raw journey and it really helped. Eventually I got to the point I didn't desire any cooked food, and then shortly after I got derailed from the path. I've just struggled since then to get back to where I felt I should be on raw eating. So my menu this week isn't going to be as detailed, I'm going back to beginnings and simple eating.

Raw Vegan Menu {Monday - Saturday}

Breakfast - Green Smoothie

Lunch - Pink or Green Smoothie or Salad or mono-meal (I'm allowing options based on what I am craving, if I am wanting to chew or if I am short on time mono-meals are great).

Supper - Big salad & a portion of whatever I cooked, if I desire it.

Dessert - Almond milk & frozen fruit shake (if I am craving something sweet after supper).

Regular Cooked Menu {Monday - Friday}
With printable recipe cards (click pics to save and print) & links to original recipes where noted.

Monday - Salisbury Steaks, Mashed Potatoes & Mixed Veggies
(I'll include a recipe card for the Salisbury steaks, but tonight I'll be making this with leftover grilled burgers from last night & just a simple beef gravy.)

Tuesday - Rosemary Pork Chops on the grill, Noodles and Steamed Broccoli

Wednesday - Grilled Chicken Tenderloins (Without the grill!), Crash Hot Potatoes, Salad

Thursday - Sloppy Joes (Manwich) on homemade buns, Oven Fries & Corn (Carried over from last week, it was too hot in the house to make buns.)

Friday - Calzones & Salad

I hope you enjoy this weeks menu. Please leave a comment if you have any thoughts, questions or if you try a recipe from my menu. I would LOVE to hear what you have to say.

Do you have the pink and green smoothie recipes?
Everything sounds so yummy! I need to get a raw food cookbook after reading this!

I have not had Salisbury Steak for a long time, I'll have to try your recipe!

You amaze me! I love how you meal plan! The recipe cards are fabulous... the crash potatoes sound delish! I am sorry about Mr. Linky this week. He has been behaving badly and I lost all my links. Hopefully, he'll be on the mend soon. Otherwise, please join in again next week, leaving your link in the comments. I love having you - thanks for inspiring me and many others! Cheers - Jenna
