A key for healthy eating for me is to plan my menu for the week.    Here is how it goes FOR ME:

1.  I look in the fridge and freezer and see what I have and need to use up.

2.   I pull the local adds and see what is on sale:

PUBLIX:  http://specials.publix.com/

KROGER:  http://www.kroger.com/Pages/default.aspx

ALDI:  http://www.aldifoods.com

WALMART:  http://www.walmart.com/

I am always looking for chicken and salmon on sale.  I usually buy my groceries Saturday and Sunday. 

3.  I look at last weeks menus and start the process. 

This week:

Sunday Night:  Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup (99 Calories per cup)  Recipe to follow on Tuesday!Best Veg Beef Soup 5-17 008

 Monday:  Grilled Chicken/Wild rice/spinach salad

Tuesday:  Chuck Roast/red potatoes/carrots

Wednesday:  Chicken Pasta

Thursday:  Salmon (Kroger)

Friday:  Homemade healthy pizza

Saturday:  Take out with friends

This week I am trying to use up items I have here at the house.  I should just have to buy pizza dough and salmon. 

I ALWAYS MAKE EXTRA PROTEIN for me and extra protein and starch for my husband.  Before we put the food up I pack our lunch for the next day.  I usually triple the amount of the chicken I grill so we can use it all week for lunches or emergency dinners.
