Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic)

This week we’re going to try eating out a bit more – Bobby has recognized that I’m in a rut and he’s making me face my fears… He’s pretty awesome like that.  Plus I want to practice eating macrobiotically (somewhat) in restaurants.

Menu for the Week of March 08 – March 14


dinner – at Sprout Cafe in Palo Alto (salads, soups, sandwiches)


dessert – at Fraiche in Palo Alto (soy frozen yogurt for me)



dinner – on my own (Bobby has band); veggie stirfry with kabocha fries

dessert – fresh fruit salad


dinner – Sushi night (not sure which restaurant yet)

dessert – frozen grapes


dinnerBlue Mango in Santa Clara


dessertVitaTop/Muffin with peanut butter


dinner – Cheesecake Factory (I always get the chopped salad & I love their brown bread)


dessert – minneola oranges


dinner – nectarine & tofu stirfry

dessert – apples and peanut butter


dinner – maybe out with Bobby’s cousins?  we haven’t seen them in a few months…

dessert – fruit! (major theme this week in dessert-land)

Breakfasts – oats, oat bran, wheat bran, bananas, peanut butter, miso soup, nectarines, oranges, kashi waffles


Lunches – leftovers, kabocha, pitas with peanut butter, pitas with avocado blends (like the chocolate thing I put on my oats), lots of spinach-ey things (I bought a 2 pound bag that I need to use up)

  1. that looks like a great meal plan for the week! that’s so wonderful of bobby to want to help you and challenge you. you lucked out with that one 🙂

  2. I’ve never heard of Sprout. Sounds good! I was at fraiche last night. 🙂 Yum!!

    Our favorite sushi restaurant is in Santa Clara. It is called Sushi O’Sushi. They have lots of really creative delicious rolls.

  3. Good luck with everything! I went to my favorite sushi place last week and I think I’m going to pick up a sushi pack from Safeway one day for lunch this week. Also…I may be going to cheesecake factory this week as well so I’ll keep you posted! It’s between that and California Pizza Kitchen which I also love for this one amazing salad they have…


  4. That looks like a great plan!! I also love the brown bread at Cheesecake Factory – we always have to ask for more 🙂 Never tried that salad, may have to give it a go next time. Good luck!

  5. soy frozen yogurt looks yummy~~~
    looking forward to read more about your macrobiotic eating in restaurants! 😀

  6. I can’t stand getting in food ruts! But ya know what, it happens to all of us! I think it’s a good thing when you have to say you are gonna try to eat out a little bit more. with most people it’s the other way around:)

  7. Looks like a great plan! I need to get to Fraiche (I’m in SF so it’s a bit of a trek just for frozen yogurt) because there’s nowhere in City to get soy frozen yogurt and I am seriously craving some!
