What’s For Dinner Menu Planning

Welcome to Week #9 of What’s For Dinner Menu Planning.

After my very cold run yesterday I got the distinct impression there will be no more running in shorts. The cold is here to stay. This time of year I crave the warmth, variety and flavors of soup. Fortunately, my craving is often easy to prepare, typically nutritious, makes great leftovers and easy for on-the-go meals during the work week.

I will experiment with and tweak a lot of recipes but not for soup. Get the right flavor combinations and textures of a satisfying soup is a science. Some of my favorite soup recipe go-to sources are:

Do you crave certain foods when the weather is cold? Do you have favorite winter foods? Do you create your own recipes or have favorite online resources?

  1. I love soups and stews at this time of year! We just bought a slow cooker and I need to find some good recipes to test it out as I suspect it will be perfect for making soups and stews on busy weeknights.

  2. Your menu looks awesome. Maybe one week you could post a grocery list and schedule for preparation. I just need some prodding to “clean up” my menu. It would be so easy to have it all laid out for me. A green monster protein smoothie sounds awesome for breakfast. That would actually stop me from going to Starbucks and indulging on something that I don’t need every morning. How do you make yours?

    1. Thank you Meghan. My green monster smoothies vary with add-ins but I use a base recipe of 1 c unsweetened almond milk, 2 handfuls of spinach, 1 tbs chia, 1 scoop Vega Vanilla Performance Protein, 1 frozen banana and 3 ice cubes. It’s so good.

      I’ll think about your idea of a grocery list and schedule. Thanks!
