Sunday Food Prep and Menu For The Week

Happy Monday!

Yesterday organic hot dogwas my usual Sunday Food Prep... My Foreman Grill was smokin' all afternoon and evening! 15 lbs of chicken breast grilled up (seasoned with basil-infused olive oil & Mrs Dash Tomato, Basil & Garlic), then I grilled hot-dogs for the family for dinner (clean - Applegate Farms), then I also grilled up some eggplant (sea salt & olive oil) for me to go with my seared Ahi (on sale!) lettuce wraps.
Seared Ahi Lettuce Wraps with grilled eggplant

I chopped all the veggies... broccoli & cauliflower, asparagus, green beans, and put them all (in portion size) in steamer bags w/ Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb. I also have Zucchini &  Yellow squash, and sweet potatoes for additional veggies throughout the week.

I chopped and froze excess strawberries (I might have gone a little overboard last week). I chopped cantaloupe and stuck it in a big Ziploc in the fridge for the kids to munch on.

I mixed up the oatmeal/flax/protein powder/cinnamon baggies. I readied my baggies with 1.5 scoops of chocolate protein powder for shakes.

I made the granola.
The brown rice is bagged in half-cup servings.
The chicken is weighed, bagged and labeled in 4 and 5 oz servings, plus 3 chicken breasts were sliced thin for lunch/sandwich meat.

Oh, and the laundry got done :-)

One more... of course I made the Chocolate mousse pie :-)

Menu for the week... it's a crazy week. Bill and I celebrate our anniversary on Friday, which is also the first day of Bethany's Cheer/Tumbling coaching and Saturday is Senior Prom. We also have the usual bowling night on Wednesday.

Sunday: (clean) hot dogs, chili & pop-chips (Tuna lettuce wraps & grilled eggplant for me)
Monday: bean & beef burritos & salad (grilled salmon & steamed asparagus for me)
Tuesday: Pecan Crusted Chicken & steamed veggies (I will also do some Tilapia for Wednesday's lunch)
Wednesday: Leftovers (Chicken wrap for me)
Thursday: Spaghetti with meat sauce (homemade & clean). (Grilled chicken & steamed veggies for me)
Friday: Grilled Chicken with steamed veggies
Saturday: Anniversary lunch-treat meal; dinner - grilled chicken with steamed veggies


  1. I am loving your food! I lived out west (southern Cal) for many years, then Colorado. Now I live in PA and most of the food is BORING! I'm stealing recipes left and right from you. Thanks! can't wait to try the Pecan crusted chicken!
