Here’s our menu plan for the week. I try to cook in batches so we have enough food for a day or two. The recipes are pretty simple, but if it’s something more difficult I’ll make it on the weekend while Big T is around to watch Little T. I also take a look at what fruits and vegetables we have around the house to make sure they aren’t going to waste and try to make things that Little T can eat on his own.
- Oatmeal with Baked Apples-2 diced apples shaken in a bag with cinnamon and nutmeg, then microwaved in a covered bowl with a little soymilk for 2 minutes to soften. Obviously, it tastes better if you do it on the stove or in the oven, but the microwave is quick and easy.
- Sugar Free Peach Muffins from http://www.fatfreevegan.com
- Green Drink- kale, romaine lettuce, apple, ginger, celery, pear, and lemon.
- Fruit Salad
- Healthy Almond Butter Bombs-made with oatmeal, almond butter, agave, and mashed bananas.
- Watermelon Juice-watermelon in the juicer with a squeeze of lemon)
- Summer Minestrone from The Veggie Queen’s e-book.
- Mexican Lasagna from http://www.fatfreevegan.com
- Salad with Tahini Dressing–A variation from the Crazy Sexy Diet Cookbook. This is more for myself, but Little T loves the Tahini Dressing.
I don’t ever plan out dinners and toss together whatever ingredients we have. I do know that I want to try to this recipe for roasted tomato soup from Healthy Happy Life, and the recipe for bread salad from The Veggie Queen’s Cookbook.
Healthy and Butter Bombs sound wrong in the same sentence. I think you are going to be arrested.

I’ll have some almond butter smudged on my face for the mugshot.
Peanut Butter Bombs have lots of chocolate and other good stuff in them, so it’s a healthier version because Little T needed a snack that would fill his tummy for a little longer.
