Menu Monday

I'm making a point to eat a lot healthier and cleaner this week.  We've been eating a lot of junk recently and our beach vacation is coming up.  I need to step up my food and workout game.

I'm linking up with Rachel today.

Mon: Easy Fish with Veggies

We'll actually be using some trout instead of salmon. There's no real recipe for this, you just put the fish on a bed of lemons and steam it in the foil. We have some frozen trout from one of KB's fishing trips and I need to use them up. I'll be leaving the herb butter off of mine, but I'm sure KB will enjoy it.

Tues: Deer Steak with Parmesan Roasted Zucchini

Besides the random frozen fish we also have quite a few random frozen deer parts in our freezer.  We have tons of deer steak and thanks to our huge zucchini plant we have tons of zucchini.  I'm just planning on marinading the steaks and grilling them, but I'm going to try to make the zucchini special.

Wed: Greek Quinoa Salad

This looks amazing to me.  I love quinoa and feta cheese so I'm thinking this will definitely be a winner for me.  I'll probably leave the olives on mine out since I hate them with a passion.  KB will probably add some tuna into his too since he thinks it's a sin to have a meatless dinner.

Thurs: Crock Pot Honey Lentils

I've actually made this before and they were delicious! I'm not normally a huge lentil fan because they get pretty mushy, but these taste so good that the texture doesn't really matter. The grated carrot really makes them delicious.

Bonus Recipes:

I'm trying to make more things that I can take as snacks to work.  Last week my snacks were marshmallows and graham crackers.  That's not exactly going to get me swim suit ready.

Sweet Potato Hummus

I made this yesterday and it was pretty good. I ended up adding in some different spices and made it a bit sweeter.  I'm going to eat this as my snack throughout the week with some carrots and celery.

Green Monster Smoothie

I made this on Saturday morning and drank it this morning as part of my breakfast.  Mine was a little different.  I put green tea, spinach, mint, bananas and blueberries in mine.  It's pretty thick and doesn't taste the best, but it's so good for you.  I'm planning on drinking it mid-morning at work too.

What will you be eating this week???


  1. The zucchini looks like a fabulous idea! I still cannot bring myself to drink a green smoothie it just really creeps me out lol. xo

  2. fish mystery packs!! i'm jealous that you have zucchini already, mine are still tiny plants. maybe because it has felt like march and not june for the past 2 weeks.
