There is sadness in our home this week. We said goodbye to our 17-year old cat this weekend and one thing that brought it home for me was sketching out our meal plans for the week. Each day, I knew she would not be with us. I share this loss with you, as my loving readers, to say that, grief is real, no matter what triggers it and we all deserve our time, however much time we may need. Meal plans are necessary in our home. Eating take-out is not going to make my body, heart, or budget feel better even if all I want to do is sit around and cry. I may be slow to writing, posting and responding as we mourn our loss, but I am still here, still committed to health and healing.
Some sales this week at Martin's to share:
- Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (fresh): $11.99 / lb - the BEST salmon to eat and one that is usually too expensive to purchase fresh
- Nature's Promise chicken (whole, drumsticks or thighs): $1.49 / lb - great time to stock up
- Stonyfield Greek Yogurt cups: 10/$10, also use a coupon to save $0.50 - perfect for Monday breakfasts when we're a little slow-moving
Monday: Roasted salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, and steamed broccoli
Tuesday: Roast chicken with potatoes, carrots and steamed green beans
Wednesday: Ground beef casserole with pasta, spinach and cheese (think spaghetti but baked with cheese on top) with salad
Thursday: (new recipe) Healthy Loaded Black Bean Nachos
