Healthy Shortcuts!

I’m so excited to introduce to you my new weekly Ezine that I’m calling, “Healthy Shortcuts!”  If you already subscribe to my newsletter, you are on the list. If you aren’t on the list yet, fill out the form at the end of this post, and you won’t miss an issue.

Healthy Shortcuts will be a mash up between healthy family living and time management.  I know how busy you are.  Some of you are working full time, part time, or as one reader said, your babies are so little it’s difficult to spend any time in the kitchen to prepare food at all!  I’m hoping to share each week a short cut or easy meal tip that will help you get a healthy meal on the table, without spending your day a slave to the stove.  I hope you sign up and enjoy this new feature.

And lastly, here is a meal plan for this week!  Don’t forget to head over to the archives for the old plans, or to print a pdf. of this one.

Breakfast Lunch Snack Dinner
Monday Blueberry Coffee Cake Grilled cheese with butternut squash Quinoa Granola Bars! (I’m so excited to try these!!) Homemade pizza
Tuesday Heavenly:  French Toast with Pecans, Coconut, and Orange Syrup Mediterranean Feta Cheese Flat Bread Pizzas (recipe this week) Fruit sliced and skewered Crockpot lasanga
Wednesday Orange creamsicle smoothies with whole wheat toast Egg salad sandwich on whole wheat with grapes No cook apricot Oat Bars Tilapia with asparagus and whole wheat rolls
Thursday Carrot Cake pancakes Mandarin chicken salad Broccoli with dip (low fat sour cream and taco seasoning) Grilled chicken breast with steamed veggies and quinoa
Friday Breakfast burritos Chickpea nugget sandwiches with carrots Crackers with low-sodium hummus Ground turkey with red sauce and rice noodles (I found in the gluten free section)


PS: If you missed my radio interview on Friday, you can still listen to it here.

OK, that’s it for me. I’m headed to my moms for Easter Dinner, and I’m bringing rolls!

Amy I am always impressed with your weekly menus, how do you make these yummy breakfasts everyday. Even your lunches blow me away, all that good food to cook then pack up each day. You are a wonderful role model for your kids. I want to try some of these ideas this week. Thank you for coming up with another newsletter, I can’t wait to read your ideas. I read your neighborhood egg hunt post, that is so cool and fun. I’ve always wanted to do that. Have a Happy Monday.

Great post! I love your blog! These meals sound delicious!
