Meal Plan Monday!

This week is the busiest, most stressful, and most FUN week of the year for me at work.  In case you didn't know, I am a dance teacher.  I also help run the studio of a few hundred students.  This week is our dress rehearsal and recital week, and I will be on my feet at the theatre and running errands all day every day from Monday-Sunday.  WHEW!  To make it through, I pack TONS of snacks.  There usually is not time for proper meals, but when the snacks are packed well, I rarely get hungry. 

Some of the things to cook/ prep for the week:
Wilted Kale Leaves Salad (using this recipe, but not baked)
Kale Chips
Apple Chips
Sliced Pineapple
Nut n Fruit Mix
Baba Ghanoush
Something with Beets.....
