Menu Plan Monday: 1/4/16


January 4th – 17th , 2016

Happy New Year!   I wish you all the very best for 2016.   I am excited for the new year and to get back to our normal routine in our household and some much healthier eating!!    We had a wonderful Holiday Season with many wonderful foodie experiences.   We are a family that loves to enjoy good food together with our friends and families over the holiday season!  The means parties and lot of food.

My goal for January is to limit our gluten and sugar intake.   Man, did we ever eat sugar over the holidays!  I also hope to increase our veggie intake a bit more.   We have one child at home yet, and he is very good about eating various vegetables.   It is all about planning and having those healthy meals ready.  A bit of a struggle at times for me as  I work full-time and feel a bit stretched at times.   I also have to make sure I have more carbs available for my young athlete!  His needs as he trains year round are a bit different than mine.
