Meatless Monday was actually really easy for me. I don’t eat a lot of meat, for both health and budget reasons. Don’t get me wrong, I think there’s plenty of nutritional benefits from lean meats and fish, but it’s easy for me to go overboard. We had quinoa burgers, potato/veggie stir fry, lentils, yogurt, and fruit.

As a Stay-At-Home-Mom, every day is a take your lunch to work day. Coincidentally, it was another meatless meal on Tuesday! We had mini veggie pizzas.

Wednesday I just filled out MyFitnessPal is usual. Again, that was part of my normal routine. Easy peasy!

On Thursday I made a delicious, healthy smoothie for Baby J and I as an after-dinner treat. I used plain Greek yogurt, honey, frozen berries, bananas, whole milk, and natural peanut butter. Packed full of nutrition and filling.

Friday wrapped up the week with raw foods. I had plenty of fresh carrots, celery, chick peas, arugula, almonds, peanuts, apples, and cucumbers to go around. Fiber’s always a good thing, right? 🙂

  1. I like to make a couple of meatless meals every week too. We make smoothies almost everyday, but what you do that I don’t (and probably should) is keep a food journal. That is next on my healthy to do list.

    1. Hi Kim, MyFitnessPal is super easy to use! I have it on my iPhone, iPad, and laptop. Lose It! is also a popular food diary app, but I haven’t spent much time figuring that one out.

  2. That looks like a fun challenge, and awww to your sweetie w/a smoothie picture. I never thought to use Greek Yogurt in a smoothie, but of course that’s the perfect base!
