Menu Planning Monday #37

Welcome to Menu Planning Monday!

For some, one of the worst parts about menu planning is actually deciding on what to make. I find myself stressed out once the late afternoon hits and I have no idea what we are having for dinner, so if I want to prevent that and stay on top of things, menu planning it is. Each week I try to plan for healthy meals that currently do not include any dairy or that can easily be adapted (baby is intolerant), that don’t include a bunch of crazy ingredients and that will get me in and out of that kitchen as quickly as possible.

Here is what we are having this week!


Crockpot Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken Tacos 

I have simplified this recipe to just adding the chicken, honey, lime and broth to a crockpot and eating as a soup topped with avocado, and our whole fam enjoys this one.

Date night = leftovers for kiddos


Zoodles with Avocado Sauce

I will add grilled chicken. We ended up not making this last week because I left the store without my zucchini and didn’t realize it until the day I was supposed to make it. So, now I’ve made sure we have all the ingredients and I am really looking forward to this one.

  1. Mmm, you’re making me crave avocado! The ones at market have been really bad lately, so we haven’t bought any. They’re so good, though!

  2. Yummy! what a healthy plan for the week!!! Love anything with avocado.

  3. Looks like it will be a delicious week! I do need to get better at meal planning…I’d eat out a lot less then.

  4. This all looks delicious!! Yummm!!!

  5. That sausage and white bean soup looks amazing! I’m going to have to add it to our rotation!

  6. I’m a menu planner, too!! I have to get better about getting it onto my blog because I am asked all of the time how do I do it and how do I keep our grocery bill so low. So that’s my goal- start making this a regular thing on my blog. Plus that kind of forces me to try new recipes anyways and share the outcome.

  7. The honey lime chicken tacos look SO good. Definitely adding that one to a future menu for my family. Hope you have a great week!

  8. What a great post! I bet creating a meal plan keeps you accountable. I should really start making mine public so that I stick to it!

  9. Oh my goodness deliciousness!! I love the zoodles.
