Menu Plan, April 26-May 2

I can already tell that for the next 6 weeks or so, menu planning is going to be rough. Nausea and food aversions have already come full force. Since the grocery store is 20 miles away,  I can't send Ben out every day to get my latest craving. Thus, having some sort of plan is imperative. We may end up eating at my in-laws' more frequently until I feel better about kitchen smells (and food in general), but here's what I can make this week assuming the thought of it doesn't make my stomach church when dinner time rolls around:

Breakfast: I'm trying to stick with a high protein breakfast of eggs, meat, and sprouted grain bread with butter most days. But, we do have some cold cereal on hand, and pancakes are always a possibility as well.

Lunch: We've been sort of just snacking at lunchtime. Leftovers, smoothies, fresh produce, cheese, quesadillas, etc...whatever sounds good and is decently healthy.

Snacks: yogurt, bread and butter or cream cheese, fruit (oranges are especially appealing as of late), carrot sticks

-Beef Stroganoff with brown rice and steamed broccoli
-Sloppy Cornbread, steamed broccoli (broccoli has been about the only green vegetable with appeal as of late, so I bought two big heads of organic broccoli this weekend at Kroger)
-homemade whole wheat pizza (with--you guessed it--steamed broccoli)

What are y'all eating this week? For a few hundred other menu plans, be sure to check out OrgJunkie's Menu Plan Monday.

  1. That's funny that you are only interested in broccoli... during my first trimester, the only vegetable I could tolerate was salad! I hope you get to feeling better soon! Some people have different experiences with each pregnancy so maybe you won't be sick as long this time around.
