Week 2 Meal Plan

Mix and match recipes to your preference.  This is only a suggested plan to follow.  Attached links will provide you with the full recipe.

Note:  While I have tried these recipes in my home, I did not develop most of them.  In the interest of their originator, I have tried to provide credit where credit is due to the best of my knowledge.

  • Monday:
    • Breakfast
      • Egg “Mcmuffins” from Show Me the Yummy
      • Side Note:  You can use regular eggs and more of them (6-8).  You can also mix and match the veggies.  I have used spinach, brocooli, tomatoes also.
