Menu Plan Monday: Heather Style

That cracks me up! Menu Plan Monday: Heather Style! If you lived in my house, you'd understand why that is so funny! Do you want to know what we have "eaten" every night for the last 2 weeks (no kidding!)? Smoothies..yes, every night...smoothies!

Here's the deal. I hate to eat, especially in the summer. I know, it sounds like I have some huge mental problem when I say that, but it's true. I'm just not into food. I drink something all day long. Normally, I drink my Pepsi, but occasionally I shake it up with a good smoothie.

My husband is wonderful and will BBQ so the kids actually get real food, but I figure they eat protein, dairy and other good stuff throughout the day that a smoothie for dinner, with something healthy before bed, is not going to kill them, and it makes this mommy happy!

Here's what I put in my smoothies: frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries & melons), 2 bananas, yogurt, milk, fresh fruit (always blueberries & raspberries) & orange juice.

I should mix it up a bit and buy different stuff, but I know that all my kids will drink it this way, without whining or complaining, and they absolutely love it!

  1. Please whip one up for me. They sound delish!!!

  2. Yummy! I love smoothies but we don't make them very often.

    I'm glad you posted this! I must admit, I wondered what you guys eat for dinner! LOL! The only thing I can picture your family having for dinner are the two things I've had with you: pizza and those yummy chili soft tacos. I still remember the tacos from like 5 years ago. I need to make those again sometime....

  3. yummy no wonder you stay so thin

  4. My smoothies are always the same too: frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches, blueberries), fresh bananas, vanilla yogurt, milk, and a spoonful of grape juice concentrate. Nobody complains about them being the same all the time!
