Welcome to Menu Plan Your Butt Off, where we menu plan so our butt will shrink. Really! We do all of the work, cooking and testing recipes, and then share a weekly healthy menu plan with you – nutritional information and Weight Watchers Points Plus and grocery list – because we are awesome. Well, we figured if we had to do it for ourselves, we might as well share it with all of you.
Be sure to share this with everyone you know! Pin it, Tweet it, Facebook, and Stumble! We truly appreciate it :)
Monday: Hearty Vegetable Soup
Tuesday: Chicken Penne Provencal
Wednesday: Green salad topped with Light and Speedy Chicken Cutlets served over a salad and sweet potato fries (frozen or fresh)
Thursday: Lightened-Up Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff served over egg noodles with steamed broccoli
Friday: Go out to eat! You deserve a night off :)
Sunday: Apple Cider Sauced Pork Loin Chops with quinoa or brown rice and an arugula salad tossed with olive oil and a touch of apple cider vinegar.
Something about Fall getting nearer makes me want to whip up some soup and bake some yummy quick-breads. Ahhhh, the comfort. Try this Best Ever Banana Nut Bread.
Don’t let the grocery list intimidate you! I’ll bet you have close to half of that stuff in your pantry already!
