Feb 8 Menu

It's more difficult than I imagined to get back into the swing. Just a week ago I was watching PBS with my good Japanese friend (yeah, it was a bender of a friday night) and came upon Roy Walford and the low calorie nutrient dense way of life. Unfortunately, he was aiming for over 90 years but his life ended prematurely at 79 as a result of Alzheimers. But, I'm still convinced he was onto something - because it turns out my daughter's meals are practically all low calorie and nutrient dense and she's skinny but healthy overall. So, going forward, in general I will attempt to be "low calorie nutrient dense" conscious as well. And it turns out, my prior obsession with superfoods, dovetails with Roy Walford's high nutrient lifestyle.

At any rate, here's the menu for the week:

Monday - Pasta Alfredo Primavera

  • Can you believe this? I guess all those vegetables balance out all that cream.
  • www.tastebook.com/recipes/539325-Pasta-Alfredo-Primavera
  • I'm sure better recipes abound, but this one sounds so much easier.
  • Oh, and remember to make extra for tomorrow's side and put beans in water. In the morning, but the beans in the slow cooker. OR, just get canned beans.

Tuesday - Chicken Caesar Wraps

Wednesday - Kale Sausage Mushroom Stew

Thursday - Asparagus & Shrimp Risotto

Friday - Thai Take Out

  • Inkling for Roddee, but knowing our friends in Cambridge go on Sundays, we may have to opt for pizza and be a little patient.
Shopping List for me:
  • Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs - broccoli, cauliflower, salad greens, red bell peppers, kale, mushrooms, asparagus, shallot, parsley
  • Meat, Poultry, Fish - chicken tenderloins, italian sausage, shrimp
