Healthy Meal Plan Friday: School's Back in Session

As I type, G is at his first day of Kindergarten.  I wanted to drive him, but he would hear nothing of it:  he was riding the bus.  In a couple hours I'll meet him and R at the bus stop, a surreal moment, the realization that I am no longer a mother of a preschooler, I am a full-fledged elementary school mom.

With school back in session I am kicking off Meal Plan Friday.  I used to share our meals for the week on Monday during the school year, but many of you told me you plan for the next week during the weekend, so I'll start posting meal plan ideas each Friday.

I'll include a weekly Meatless Monday, as well as one or two other extras, like a lunch idea you can make early in the week and eat during the week, or a special snack creation.  I'll also try and mix it up with some vegan, vegetarian and traditional dishes.

Let me know what you think!

Meal Plan:

Our Dinners:
Caramelized Onion Calzones, Fresh Mango, Steamed Broccoli

Sweet Potato Enchiladas, Brown Rice with Lime and Cilantro, Fresh Pineapple
Citrus Glazed Chicken, Couscous, Cucumbers, Summer Marinated, Red Grapes

Macaroni and Cheese (with Broccoli, Cauliflower and Bacon), Kiwi Slices
Pizza Soup, Tossed Salad, Raspberries
Thai Vegetarian Wrap, Sweet Potato Fries, Peaches

After-School Snack Special:
Apple Nachos

Lunch Special:
Quinoa and Curried Chickpea Salad

Happy Friday All!

Life is sweet,

Love this idea! And I still want to try the caramelized onion calzones... maybe I can trick Liam into eating onions? :)
