Healthy Menu Plan January 2017 Week 4

My mom was in town this week and we had a lot of fun touring different retirement communities and watching my son be Aladdin in his school play.  It was a busy but fun week!  While I made a healthy menu plan for this week, admittedly I didn’t follow every day exactly though I started strong.  There were times that we as a family ended up going out to eat as well as trying the food out at the local facilities we toured.  Mom and I had fun experimenting with a few menu items as well.  Overall it was a great and yummy success!

For this week’s Healthy Menu Plan, I tried following the recommendations from the nutritionist that I posted with last week’s Healthy Menu Plan.  The idea was to have some form of protein and vegetable (ideally) with each meal/snack, as well as whole grains.  On Sunday, we had our planned dessert for breakfast (homemade cinnamon rolls – all I can say is WOW!!!  It was pure indulgence.)

Here is a breakdown of the menu items:
