Menu Plan Monday - February 10

If you have been reading my blog over the past week you know that I was selected as one of the many Engine 2 Challenge bloggers!!

Engine 2 is having a Nationwide 28-Day Challenge to eat plant-based foods!

Before I get into my meal plans for the week, I know that many of you are interested in a healthy plant-based lifestyle, but are unsure of where to start.

Engine 2 offers two plans: Firefighter {go all in} or Fire Cadet {ease into it giving up new foods each week}.  You can take this online quiz to find out where you should start.

Both plans along with free recipes and resources are available at their 28-Day Challenge page.  And to view all my posted meals and recipes you can view my Engine 2 Challenge thread.

Today is Day 8...and I'm feeling GREAT!  ;)

Here are a few of my meals from the weekend

Pizza from YourPie {whole wheat crust, no cheese, and lots of veggies}

Spelt Blueberry Pancakes from Engine 2

Here are my meal plans for the week:

Black Bean Burgers
Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili 
Burritos with Spanish Rice and Black Beans
Black Bean and "Cheese" Quesadillas

And you may be wondering how I am feeling.  Well, I feel wonderful!  After one week I've lost 4lbs and {if you don't mind too much information} am having bm's every day.  To some that may not be a big deal, but for me, that is just short of a miracle!

On the down side, I've been having headaches just about every day as well.  I know that they are probably caused by lack of sugar and caffeine and from toxins leaving my body, so I'm looking forward to being headache free!  Last night was my worse one yet, so I'm pretty over having them at this point.

Well, that's it for our meals this week.  If you have any questions about the Engine 2 Diet or if you are also taking the challenge, I'd love to hear from you!

That all looks delicious! I wish I was better about meal planning. I am one of the bloggers doing the Engine 2 challenge too. :) I'm grateful for some of your ideas because I easily get uninspired! Can you share a link for that cookie recipe?

Chalayn, thanks for stopping by! I'm so excited about this challenge and posting about it has been helping! I got the recipe from her book but looked it up and it is online too, so here's the link {which I've added in my post too} Mine came out just ok...wondering if I need new flour.
