Menu Plan Monday: Week of August 3, 2015

August 3, 2015

August food holidays, my upcoming SMT, and a not-to-be-missed #LinkLove!

menu plan monday and link love at nutritioulicious

Happy August everyone! A few fun things to note about the unofficial last month of summer (cue sad music, tears, and nose blowing): National holidays in August include Kids Eat Right Month, Panini Month and Sandwich Month (take a look at the recipe link below for an awesome sandwich roundup), Peach Month (there are two peach recipe roundups below), and Eat Dessert First Month. How much fun is all of that?! (especially the last one!). You can find more food, health, and nutrition events for August at Dietitians Online.

I didn’t even realize that August was National Sandwich Month, but how approrpiate then that I am heading to Chicago tonight for a back to school satellite media tour (SMT) tomorrow morning with a focus on healthy lunch sandwiches (sponsored by Land O’Frost)! Keep an eye on my Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter profiles for behind-the-scenes photos and updates on when the segments and interviews will be available to view!

As a result of my absence tonight and tomorrow, this week’s meal plan is a little lacking this week. I’m leaving some easy meals for my babysitter to put together for the kids, and my husband will likely be having take out. I’ll be updating the menu later this week with what’s in store for the rest of the week.

In the meantime, what isn’t lacking is this week’s #LinkLove! So many great articles and recipes that are not to be missed! So enjoy and tell me:
