Meal Planning Monday (16th July 2012)

Yes, I know, it's Tuesday already but better late than never right? I've not done a full menu for the last two weeks and have really missed it. This week I've taken it up a gear in reaction to include lunches as much as possible.

This week I am aiming to do as little shopping as possible and to use my store cupboard to its fullest potential. I have also been re-reading my nutrition books as we have been plant-eating for three months now and I felt like a reminder on what vitamins come from where and just how much seaweed are we expected to eat a week!

So, here is our menu for this week.

Monday 
Lunch: Tomato & vegetable pasta with homemade garlic bread
Dinner: Roast dinner (roast potatoes  root veg, peas & sweetcorn, pan fried kale with walnuts & brazil nuts, yorkshire pudding and gravy)

Tuesday
Lunch: Curried veg, bean & lentil soup with bread
Dinner: Spaghetti mushroom, spinach & lentil bolognese 

Wednesday
Lunch: Hummus, avocado & salad sandwiches
Dinner: Quinoa burger, potato wedges & salad (with uber-special salad dressing, more on this later!)

Thursday
Lunch: Baked potatoes with lentil & vegetable stew
Dinner: Bean & vegetable fajitas

Friday
Lunch: Sandwiches
Dinner: Vegetable Kebab, quinoa & bulgar wheat salad & green salad (the forecast says sun!)

Saturday
Lunch: Soup or sandwiches (depending on weather)
Dinner: Bean & vegetable bake

Sunday
Lunch: Pizza (experimentally with no cheese! will report back on success....)
Dinner: Vegetable & potato gratin

Snacks & puddings
Tinned, fresh and dried fruit, smoothie, crackers or rice cakes & nut butter or hummus or marmite, whole nuts, yoghurt, muffins

I'm going to be posting more later this week on the Babe's food, particularly how he gets his nutrition as a plant-eater so come back to check that out.
