First week of the new year, woohoo. For those of you are new I write these weekly plans to help me spend less (I kinda of love grocery shopping, yea I know I’m weird), to save time and to try and help us eat in more often. Also I love knowing what other people eat so I thought it would be fun to share. For a while I’ll be adding my plans for what greens I’ll be eating since one of my resolutions is to build a habit of introducing more green veggies into our diet. Maybe some day it’ll be so normal for us that I won’t have to mention them any more.
|Day||Main Meal||Goals (Veggies, Whole Grain, Fish)|

Hey Marissa, I too am always trying to get more greens into my/my families tummies. One trick I have is to make a spinach and fruit smoothie. Sounds gross but you cannot taste the spinach AT ALL! Start with a blender FULL of raw fresh spinach and put in about a cup or two of OJ, puree. Make sure the Spinach is fully emulsified. Add any fruit you want, I usually do frozen mango, peaches, strawberries, blackberries or blueberries, and a banana. Adding OJ as necessary to thin it up. Give it a try :) I have also added yogurt (protein) and flax seed meal (grain/fatty acids). Let me know if you try it and what you think :)

I wish I could create a menu and stick to it. I’ve been trying to do bi-weekly grocery shopping to save time, and it turns out that it saves a bit of money in the long run, too.
