Menu Plan Monday: Freezer and Pantry Meals

 

For now, I’m putting the Volumetrics diet on hold, while I clear out my pantry and freezer items. At the same time, I am using some meal ideas from the Volumetrics book (especially breakfast and lunch). We’ve been trying to have more vegetables and fruit with each meal. Here are some of the meals we enjoyed last week:

 

Breakfasts:

We pick one of the below items and have it with fruit, and coffee or tea:

– Homemade Freezer Waffles

– 1 1/3 c. oatmeal, prepared with water, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 2 tsp. brown sugar

– 3/4 c. nonfat plain yogurt with 2 Tbl. Crockpot Granola, 2 tsp. honey, 3/4 c. orange juice

– Smoothie with 1 piece of whole wheat toast (1 tsp. butter), instead of fruit

 

Lunches:

Baked Potato with Broccoli and Cheese and a side of fruit (we’ve had this lunch a lot):

– Top 1 baked potato with 1 tsp. butter, 1 c. broccoli, and 1/4 c. reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

Soup with whole wheat toast

Leftovers (with fruit)

 

Dinners:

Roasted Sausage, Potatoes and Veggies

Cheesy Italian Meatballs & Marinara Sauce (I had made this earlier and had a pan of meatballs in my freezer)

Bean and Pasta Soup (I had many of these items in my pantry)

Crockpot Chili (Again, most of these items I had in my pantry, except cheddar cheese I have in my freezer already shredded in zip lock bags)
