Banana Nut Muffin. 1/2 apple. Orange Juice

Pasta Salad on Mixed Greens*
Celery w/ Low Fat Ranch
Filet + Sweet Potato + Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Pasta Salad: rotini noodles with light italian dressing, garbanzo beans, feta, tomatoes, cucumbers, diced onions, salt and pepper. YUM.
This is my husband's lunch for Monday. He is on the same snacks, breakfast, and dinner as me, but he likes different lunch foods. So this is Mexican rice with grilled chicken + refried beans with cheese and corn.
Peanut Butter Toast + Fresh Strawberries
Tomato + Mozzarella Salad on Mixed Greens with Basil*
Spaghetti + Turkey Meatballs + Haricot Vert
*I use a reduced balsamic vinegar on this that is delicious and easy. If you cook balsamic vinegar on low heat in a sauce pan it will turn from a watery vinegar into a thicker, sweet syrup like dressing. It is soooooo good.
Tuesday husband's lunch. Vegetable fried rice with chicken lo mein. Yum. (These are leftovers from Sunday!)

Brussel sprouts are my new favorite food. Seriously. The best thing ever. And people don't buy them much so they're always on sale. I got a whole package today for .79 cents. Can you believe it? Then you just add a little butter or olive oil, sea salt, garlic and pepper and cook at 400 for about 30-40 minutes. So simple, so delicious, and healthy.
Friday we will have a little of whatever is left so that we can save some $$ and not waste any food.
Now here is the grocery list:
greek yogurt (flavors)
plain greek yogurt
veggies: brussel sprouts, celery, mixed greens
