There’s a different kind of rhythm around our house on the weekends. It’s typically more relaxed, unhurried and unplanned, with the only exceptions being D’s Saturday a.m. swim class and grocery shopping. We like it this way. It allows for some spontaneity in between weeks of routine and life’s busyness.
Participating in a nutrition challenge on the weekends proves to be a little more difficult since it doesn’t allow for that typical I’ll do as I please weekend mentality. It requires me to be more mindful of my meals and snacks. The best part is, it wasn’t too difficult. With one blueberry scone as the exception on Saturday morning, I had a weekend of healthy eating.
Lunch: Snack-style with grapes, crackers, cheese and tomatoes
Dinner: Grilled chicken breasts with cabbage salad
Breakfast: Egg white, spinach, feta wrap on whole wheat tortilla
Lunch: Tuna salad with avocado, tomatoes and grapes
Snack: Cashews and grape tomatoes – we always have healthy grabs out for those in-between meal hunger pangs.
Dinner: Wild Rice Salad with apples and walnuts
Breakfast: Kashi Protein GOLEAN Crunch Cereal
Lunch: Mixed salad with romaine, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, almonds; cup of chicken noodle soup
Dinner: Veggie, Cheese, Cracker Tray – This is a weekly menu staple in my house because it’s quick, well-rounded, nutritious and perfect for busy weekday evenings.
