The shopping is done and I am ready to roll!! I went to do my weekly grocery shopping and I am happy to report that even with the addition of new grocery items such as : whole wheat flower, coconut oil (did you know that this comes in a jar-because man, I didn't!), 100% pure maple syrup (at $7 for a teeny jar may I just say that this will be a treat now!!) and a lot of fruit my grocery bill (including meat) came to approximately $190 for the seven of us.
So here is my menu plan for our first week of the Breakfast Revolution:
Tuesday Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes(http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2010/04/21/recipe-whole-wheat-banana-pancakes-freeze-the-leftovers/)
Let me note here that I made this recipe today and have already eaten 2 big pancakes!! I am
almost hoping that the kids don't like them because they are SO good-and I ate them plain!!!
Wednesday Strawberry Smoothies with Whole Wheat Toast (http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2010/05/17/recipe-tasty-smoothies/)
Thursday Whole Wheat Muffin addding unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon (http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2010/05/12/recipe-fruit-nut-or-berry-or-whatever-you-want-them-to-be-whole-wheat-muffins/)
Friday Scrambled eggs and whole wheat toast (I am going to try to get to Great Harvest this week to
purchase the Honey Wheat bread that only has 3 ingredients!! If not then we will use what we
have for this week!)
Saturday Whole Wheat French Toast with 100% Maple Syrup
Sunday Left over pancakes/muffins with Pineapple Smoothie Pops (Using smoothie recipe above) and/or
So as you can see this is pretty easy. My challenge will be making the muffins ahead of time-which I plan on doing tomorrow. The pancakes honestly weren't hard once I got going-I'm not the best pancake maker to be truthful. I'll share as the week goes on what the likes and dislikes are/were. Trust me-something on this menu will be a no go!!!!!
