Menu Plan Monday

Healthy, simple and vegan this week.  We need to be better about eating a little healthier.  I do believe I have put on a few pounds.  My husband thinks he has too!  How'd that happen??

Peanut Butter Sesame Noodles (Rachel Rays- I used to use this recipe I think...)
Steamed broccoli

Black Bean soup in the crock pot

Loaded Baked Potatoes (we skipped those last week)
canned chili and veg toppings

thaw something from the freezer- carpet is being
installed today, Yippee!

Pizza night (homemade and cheeseless)
veg or salad

Make Spaghetti sauce in bulk- didn't use my gigantic
Costco tomato cans last week.  I'll then put this in jars and freeze!

Leftover Black Bean soup
over rice
Green salad

fresh cilantro
canned chili?

I might try the big can of sauce at costco as well. I have not purchased it before, but I like to make big batches of sauce ahead of time too. Did you know that you can add pumpkin purée to spaghetti sauce for added nutrition without changing the flavor? It helps to thicken it a bit as well.
If you like Albertsons brand canned chili it is still on sale until tomorrow for $1
thanks for sharing the menu!

Wow, carrot thyme breaks sounds wonderful. Can't wait to try it - and hear how it turns out! I had no idea you can put carrots into the bread machine - well that many at least! Actually it sounds like a great cookbook...I will have to check into this one! Thanks for the great ideas :)

I am new to your blog and just wanted to let you know that I just love your menu plan, it is so helpful to see what a vegetarian/vegan eats. I have just started to serve vegetarian meals to my family too, but I'm having a hard time finding good recipes. Do you have a favorite cookbook that you like to use? I look forward to reading your blog in the future.

Jane- I had no idea about the pumpkin! What a great idea as I try to pump as many vitamins and nutrients into my little one!

Karen- Im so glad you enjoy my blog! I just love that!
