{Menu Monday} Zoodles, Grapefruit, & Collards (oh my)

That would be a super gross combination, yes?

Over the past year or so I've found that if I sit down & plan our meals for the week, & get all the shopping done everything runs much more smoothly. The budget is adhered to, food doesn't go bad in the fridge, & home cooked meals are good for the soul (& waistline.) I had a trusty planner I'd been using to template out the weeks but thought 2015 needed a fresh face taped to my fridge and I came across this little cutie, thanks to the super creative folks at elephantshoe.  

Let's pretend that I'm not out of printer ink (again) & you have a pretty picture of my week of meals laid out neatly for this first full week of January 2015.

And might the nearly 30 week pregnant lady suggest for a snack...

No Bake Energy Bites

-I left out the coconut & upped the oatmeal content. Big hit in my house!

I just got a spiralizer last month. I was intrigued with this Kung Pao idea.

I keep meaning to make the energy bites - I wanted to sub out the coconut too.
