Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic)

4 days until the cruise!

This week’s menu planning was easy – we’re going on a cruise that begins Friday, and we’re heading to LA on Thursday.  I forgot that vacationing means using up produce, so I have to eat about a bajillion pounds of fruit this week.

    We have many similar ingredients and meals, I love it! Not surprising though really if you think about it.

    My goal this week is to start doing more yoga. Wish me luck!

    That’s probably the best thing you’d HAVE to do – eat fruit! Not a bad task :)

    Oh wow, you are going to have such a wonderful time on your cruise…especially now that you’ve got the last couple of days planned out, nothing to worry about but eating LOTS of fruits and veggies before you leave ;)

    Exciting about your cruise! Those pitas look very delish. I love fluffy carbs.
    I always end up having to eat tons of produce before a trip too. I desperately need to go acquire more of it now though, because I came home to a very empty refrigerator!
