Healthy Meal Plan: Halfway

After celebrating R's 9th birthday this week, it hit me:  he's halfway to 18, halfway to adulthood, halfway to independence...

Whoa.  I am halfway through my "kid time" parenting of my first child.

True, you never, ever stop "parenting," nor would I want to do so.  I love parenting.  But the kiddo, childhood, growing-up years are halfway behind me. 

So as I ponder reaching the mid-way point of parenting my first child, how about some healthy meals to keep us all growing up healthy?

This week's Healthy Meal Plan:

Meatless Monday:  Spring Risotto, Kale Chips, Blood Oranges

Chicken and Vegetable Tetrazzini, Steamed Broccoli, Kiwi Slices

Thai Vegetarian Wrap, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Pineapple

Enchilada Rotini, Diced Mango

Chicken Pot Pie, Slow Cooker (**Can also be made chicken-less), Tossed Spinach Salad, Applesauce

Olive Bar Fish, Grits, Green Beans, Pear Slices

Have a great weekend!

Life is sweet,

Guilt free and very healthy. You won't go wrong with these entrees. Healthy need not be boring.

Yeah, I must learn to make some of these too. I'm not exactly on a diet, but it sure is nice to eat something healthy.

These are nice dishes that can be added to our list of menu. We are running a small catering business and I'm open to adding and learning more recipe.
