August-September Menu Plan (Menu Plan Monday 8-20-12}

menu plan monday Menu Plan Monday

UPDATE 8/27/12: I fleshed out the selection of sides for the month, plus I added a couple new breakfasts and a lunch or two to the mix. Also, if you haven’t noticed yet, I have a brand new look, and even a brand new name! Read all about it here.

Since I am endeavoring to plan my menus monthly now (due to shopping once a month), I am going to start posting them monthly instead of weekly. It may seem odd to post a month’s worth of meal planning in the middle of the month, but I do my monthly shopping trip in the middle of the month, so that’s just how it works out.

This will also free up my editorial calendar a little bit to make room for my broadened scope of topics when I switch completely to Authentic Simplicity (which, by the way, is coming along nicely. Be prepared next week for a brand new look!).

Also, in case you hadn’t noticed yet, this week I am writing a whole series about  Organizing on the Cheap. Each day, I’ll bring you a new idea for organizing different areas of your house for cheap… or better yet, for free! In today’s post, I show you how I organized my spice cabinet for only $2!


All breakfasts are served with a side of fruit. I’m also trying to get into the habit of having a serving of yogurt at every breakfast, but the coconut milk yogurt keeps giving me fits. Once I have a reliable method for making that yogurt, we will definitely have some every morning!


  • Leftovers
  • Sunbutter & Jelly Sandwiches
  • Egg Salad Sandwiches
  • Vegan Bean Burgers
  • Burrito Bols a la Chipotle



I’m trying to incorporate more protein-based snacks rather than carb-based snacks. We’ll see how that goes since some of us are limited on the proteins we can eat.
