Meal Plan July 26th- Aug.1

Here's this weeks meal plan, I know we eat a lot of chicken, I am going to work on eating less meat and trying to incorporate more beans & lentils (good for you, good for the pocket book!) so have patience with me until then. I also have a husband who eats a TON and we both eat left overs for lunch the next day, so this is literally my shopping list, no other lunch foods are added (if you were thinking "that's a lot of food for one week!"). I am also going to try to work on lowering my grocery purchases and saving some money in the food budget (by incorporating less expensive, but still nutritious recipes- a lot of them are stew & soups- so we might need to wait until it cools down! So look for that this fall!) If you want, you can split 1 package of chicken breasts between the baked chicken and the lime tacos and add a can of black beans to the lime tacos to "beef" it up!

Meal Plan
Sunday- BBQ Chicken Legs, BBQ Squash, Cucumber Salad
Monday- Lime Chicken Soft Tacos & Watermelon Wedges (I am going to try this in the crock pot, I will let you know how it goes!)
Tuesday- Spaghetti and Artichokes
Wednesday- Stuffed Bell Peppers and Green Salad
Thursday- Baked Chicken Breasts, Sweet Potato Fries, Corn on the Cob, Watermelon
Friday- left overs
