Menu Plan Monday {on Tuesday}

It's the end of April, and that means I have been on, off, and then back on my journey of eating better several times!  ;)  Sound familiar??!

Thankfully it has been unseasonably cool this spring, so I still have time to get into shape for "shorts weather."

My plan is simple....eat right and exercise!  Ok, easier said then done. 

Well, I did pick up some organic produce and eggs from our local co-op.  There should be some avocados as well, but they weren't on the truck so I'll be getting them next time.  I also bought some organic strawberries and apples at the store this week...so we are stocked up!

Tonight we are having a big salad for dinner!

My weakness though is packaged snacks!  I'm on a mission right now to find some healthy packaged snack ideas.  And to help me, I'm going to use what a friend recommended to me yesterday.  It's called Fooducate and is a FREE food grading system for your phone.  

Once downloaded, you just scan the UPC of a food and it will be graded.  You can change the settings to list specific items.  Mine will show whether a food is vegetarian, vegan, contains GMOs, and more. What's even better is that it suggests healthier alternatives!

So here are some of our meals for the week:

Vegetable and Bean Soup
Big Vegetable and Fruit Salad
Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce
Homemade Pineapple Pizza

If you have any easy plant-based recipes I would love to hear them!  I've been pinning several on Pinterest so I'm looking forward to trying some new meals in the next few weeks!
