    I really need to get into meal/menu planning for each week! It would really help me stick to my budget and stay organized!!

    i just made zucchini mushroom patties this past week! so yummy with sprouts and tomato slices. they weren’t the most filling though, just a warning.

    ooh…how do you make paleo pad thai? Or really any pad thai for that matter :)


    Tina September 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    @daniella: The secret is spaghetti squash! :) The recipe is from a new cookbook, so I’m hoping to share it this week!


    Marie September 3, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    @Tina: we can’t get spaghettie squash where I live. Any other ideas?


    Christine September 3, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Do you have a good recipe for pad thai? I love it, but it never tastes as good when I make it myself.


    Chelsie @ Balance, Not Scale September 3, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Ooh. Spaghetti squash pad thai?! I honestly cannot wait to see that recipe! :) Great plan — it looks super delicious overall!


    Lauren September 3, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Any reason to come back to Boston to run is a good enough reason for me. My last race there was too short. :)

    have you ever tried this amazing soup recipe from Whole Living Mag? If not, you should! it’s seriously incredible.


    Tina September 3, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Sounds delicious! Thanks for the link! :)


    Jenica September 3, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    As always, I super admire your organization! I’ll never be this organized. Oh well.


    Christina @ The Beautiful Balance September 3, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    For being such a coconut freak, how do I not know about coconut aminos!?! Thanks for the mention :)


    Heather September 3, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Meal planning, so smart. I need to start doing this!

    You’re so organized! Meal planning is on my to-do list tomorrow. After getting back from the holiday weekend, I’m so glad I had trusty leftovers to fall back on!
