Menu Plan at a Glance

She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household…
Proverbs 31:14-15

We have been doing a much better job of restricting our meat intake as a result of researching the harmful affects that animal products have on the body.

We were the family that ate only fish, lean chicken, non fat milk and fruit or veggies with each meal. We are now the family that eats fruits, veggies r legumes with each meal. Below I have shared our menu from the past week.

MONDAY
Egg roll stuffing:
Sauteed cabbage (red & green), carrots and tofu.

It takes just minutes to make up the rolls. We made 48 rolls in under 15 minutes.

Another 15-20 minutes towards deep frying the rolls. Half of them went into the freezer for future dinners or lunches.

YUMMY!
We had sauteed BokChoy with the egg rolls and I was blown away by the ease to prepare and the flavor.
TUESDAY

I finished peeling the potatoes and carrots just as the sun began to rise. I made a couple of pounds of Stewed Potatoes, Carrots & Dumplings.
This was enough to make (1) dinner and (4) dinners for the freezer.
WEDNESDAY

Sauteed Fennel, Shaved Carrots & Julienned Egg plant with a side of hash brown potatoes.
Hash Brown PotatoesTHURSDAY

Fennel Salad
Crisp fresh vegetables are mouthwatering.
FRIDAY
Spicy Marinated Tofu
Steamed Rice
Sauteed Zucchini and Broccoli********************************************

What I’ve learned this week…

  • These meals take far less time to cook than the animal based meals I’ve cooked before.
  • When I pair the right veggies, fruits, starches and legumes I can actually create a filling meal.
  • My children were extremely open to trying new vegetables and have identified several new favorites.

    Wow! Everything looks so delicious! I wanted to see if you could give me detailed instructions for the egg rolls? Also, I would love for you to give me some freezing tips… I have freezed some things in the past and sometimes they end up having a “freezer” taste. I’m one for suggestions and tips from everyone. Being able to freeze somethings properly would sure make my life simplier and my family’s supper wouldn’t have to sacrifice!:) Thank you for all that you do! I appreciate everything!

    Your photos of the colorful food look amazing. They are making my mouth water! We have been going meatless (or low meat) one day per week. I'm thinking of stepping that up to two. My husband does love his meat, so the Holy Spirit would have to change his heart before we could go vegan.

    Blessings, and thank you for sharing! I might try to Bok Choy.
