Weekly Healthy Meal Plan: Advent

I love advent.  I love anticipation.  And any season that is a celebration of something big "to come," well, that's right up my alley.  As the boys take turns opening the doors on our Advent Calendar, I'm struck with how very close we are to Christmas and how taking this year s...l...o...w has really enhanced our joy.

Our tree is not yet decorated.  The Christmas cards?  Still on my desk, waiting to be sent.  We've done a fair amount, but not too much, and this has made this season so much enjoyable.  After all, what's more important?  A fully decorated tree, or a relaxed, less-stressed mom?

I think I could get the hang of this "slow down" style...

In the spirit of less-stress, here are some more easy meals for your Healthy Weekly Meal Plan:

Meatless Monday:  Greek Quinoa, Hummus, Clementines

Southwest Grilled Shrimp with an Avocado Mash
, Mango

Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken, Sauteed Green Beans, Oven Roasted Potatoes, Apple Slices

Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli and Bacon, Pineapple

Seven Bean Soup, Bread, Blackberries

Taqueria Style Tacos, Refried Beans, Kiwi
Life is sweet,
