Menu Plan Monday- Week of February 22, 2010

If I wasn't inspired to buy grass fed beef from a local farm before seeing Food, Inc., I certainly am now.

The problem is that grass fed beef is VERY expensive. If I am going to move forward with changing my whole meal plans, budget and purchases, its going to take some work to maintain the frugal budget we are on now. I guess this is part of my frustration, my frustration for all order to eat healthy, it costs WAY more than eating unhealthy.

My only hope and prayer is that something will change and there will be more restrictions on the types of food that can even be sold...because it is unhealthy. Not to put a downer on this nice Menu Plan post, but this has been a concern of mine even before I saw the movie. I want to provide the best for my family under the budgetary guidelines that we have set up, but doing so is getting harder and harder the more I equip myself with the knowledge of what really makes a healthy diet....more to come on this topic, for now....the menu plan!

Breakfasts: Hot Quinoa Breakfast Cereal, Eggs and Toast, Pancakes

Snacks: Playgroup Granola Bars, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Yogurt with Maple Syrup and Granola and Fruit, Winter Energy Cookies
