      Ok everyone here is the menu you all asked for.
      I had to retype it into a different format since the way I use it
      it’d take many e-mails to transfer to you. What I do on each day is
      also include the recipe for each thing I’m making (no looking it up late,
      etc.) I then print a week at a time to make up my grocery list. I
      know that it’s not the healthiest food in the world, but, it’s all
      low fat/cholesterol and nobody eats all things that I make in a day. I
      generally only eat the sides and my daughters tend to eat the tofu version of
      the main item and whomever else I’m feeding (generally 3-7 more people
      per night), have to tell me in advance which things they plan to eat so I make
      enough.
