Monday Meal Plan + Meal Idea

Hi everybody and Happy Monday!

Yep, that went down this afternoon SO basically, we are ready for the week now 😉 Ha here is what our menu is looking like for the week:

  • Chicken Caesar salads
  • Chicken-veggie soup
  • Grilled pork chops (the can stand alone, right?) with roasted veggies
  • Grilled steaks for nachos and salads
  • Meatballs with rice and/or veggies
  • Turkey sandwiches or salads
  • Simple Mills banana muffins with eggs (breakfast)

I got some beautiful spinach and romaine lettuce at the market Saturday, so the return of salads! Also, the weather is heating up 🙂

Now for a meal idea… Meatballs!



  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon each (depending on your taste!) of oregano, turmeric, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper
  • Optional- 1/4 cup of beef braunschweiger (we buy this from US Wellness Meats… getting those organ meats in!)

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Bake for roughly 30 minutes. I start checking them around 25.

This makes roughly 30 meatballs. They go from this…

To this…

What I ate Wednesday- March 1st

Here we are in March y’all! It’s my birthday month + spring break month, soooo kind of a favorite around here. And it usually is the month with (in my opinion…) the most diverse weather. And I feel like this is holding true so far 🙂 

Here’s a look at the meals from today… all three from Mary’s (hahahha!)! 

Breakfast… Veggie fritters with sweet potatos and salsa (perfect breakfast!). 

Lunch… meatballs with zoodles and tomato sauce. Flatbread on the side. 

Dinner… chili with avocado! I also enjoyed some “chow chow” while heating this up in the skillet. Very hearty chili! 

Time to catch up on a little sleep (I hope!). Sleep tight y’all! 

Oh and Tripp will be drawing a winner for February’s BC giveaway tomorrow! If you placed an order through the #switchtosafer social link, you were entered. Want to enter the March giveaway?? Just place an order using THIS link before the end of the month 🙂
