On the lean and green menu this week!

I just finished planning my first week's lean & green menu, and it was pretty intense! First, I had to figure out from the list what exactly I wanted to eat, and then I had to come up with ways to put them in recipes. Everything is pretty basic so far, but I'm sure as I go along I'll come up with more ideas and ways to make my menu more exciting.
Here's a list of the things I'll be eating in the evening this week.

Grilled shrimp, cauliflower rice, and a side salad with tomatoes, pine nuts, and balsamic breeze dressing.

Baked chicken breast and roasted
asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms.

An egg white vegetable (mushrooms and zucchini) omelette with MorningStar Farms veggie sausage links, and two wedges of laughing cow light cheese.

Spaghetti squash "spaghetti" with light tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, and ground buffalo.

Grilled chicken salad with tomatoes, pine nuts, sliced black olives, and balsamic breeze dressing.

Chicken kebabs with mushrooms, zucchini, and green and red peppers. Two wedges of laughing cow light cheese.

Shrimp stir fry With mushrooms, zucchini, Broccoli, and Shirataki noodles (which I am very interested in trying. They are made out of plant root, and have zero cal, zero fat, and they are a free addition to any meal.)

So that's it! It's going to be an interesting week, but at least I know I will have delicious meals to look forward to at the end of the day.
I will post pictures, and reviews of my meals on my blog. Bon app├ętit!
