Our Menu for the Week of March 4, 2013
Making a menu isn’t always easy, but when you pair menu planning with nutritional goals, you have a win win situation. My hubby and I have a few health and fitness goals that we want to reach this year. One of my goals is to have a healthy weight gain durning my pregnancy. I want to have energy and feel good, all the while nourishing our little peanut.
I consider our menu to be pretty healthy but I do want to play in the kitchen a bit more with vegetarian and gluten free options. So far I’ve been able to come up with an amazing spicy avocado hummus and parmesan grilled cheese and quinoa porridge that fills me up and pleasures the taste buds. The most important thing when doing vegetarian recipes is, it they have to taste good and that is my goal with playing around with these new recipes.
I’ve listed next to each recipe if they are gluten free or vegetarian. If you don’t want a complete vegetarian dish, don’t worry, just add some diced chicken or shredded turkey to add protein and that meat flavor you love!
Well until next weeks menu, get in the kitchen and enjoy cooking up some scrumptious meals for your family.
Have a great week!
