So far, I am having really good luck with my healthy meal choices. They have all been really tasty and, for the most part, very simple to make. I hope to continue that trend with my current menu plan. I only have two vegetarian meals slotted for the upcoming week, however I have decided to add in a couple of new fish recipes for a little variety. I also have one day that is up in the air, and is all going to depend on whether or not my mom comes to our house for a visit. I won't know until that day what I am going to make for dinner, so I will just post both options below. I must say it has been pretty easy sticking to eating fresh and healthy. I have noticed that as long as I have new things to try, I never get bored with our dinners and I am less likely to eat bad stuff. I just hope to keep the healthy food momentum going!
