You’re all going to think that my blog was hacked when I say this, but I saw TWO movies this weekend. Whole ones. In the theater. And I’m still here to tell you about it!

Spiderman 2 was actually not that bad, once I could stop referring to it as Superman and making Dan want to suffocate me in my sleep. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did, especially since it’s two-and-a-half hours long, but it was actually decent. Godzilla on the other hand…that felt like the full two hours and then some more two hours, followed by an additional two hours. But the 3D was neat?

I am officially the best girlfriend ever and should have no trouble dragging Dan to see The Fault in Our Stars with me.

Along with all this movie-watching comes theater food, candy, and dinners on the run. I’ve had a lot of jelly beans, pizza, ice cream, and french fries this weekend. So for the week ahead, I wanted to plan some healthier meals. Of course, I went straight to Pinterest for inspiration.

For breakfast this week, these Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins will be an easy, healthy option to grab on our way out the door.


For lunch, I plan to combine these two salads into one that I can take to work and enjoy with cottage cheese, broccoli, cucumber, grapes, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds.

One of the two dinners on the menu for the week is this Strawberry Basil Balsamic Pizza.

The other I let Dan choose and he picked these Broccoli Parmesean Meatballs. I think these might be good with some whole wheat pasta and olive oil, or maybe a spaghetti squash.


If we decide we need a side dish to go with our meal, these Cinnamon Vanilla Sweet Potatoes look delicious!

And of course, I need a sweet treat to follow every.single.meal. This Banana Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding looks great on it’s own, but I might even throw a few chocolate chips on top to make it even better.

I’m really excited to try all of these! They all seem like healthy options without being boring or bland. What’s on your menu for the week? Have you tried any Pinterest recipes that you’ve really loved?
