Hello Everyone! For years now I have attempted to create (and stick to) a weekly meal plan. To be honest I find the process hard and boring. You never really know what you will be hungry for from one day until the next, so it gets difficult trying to anticipate the whims of your palate. Due to these reasons I have never successfully committed to it, but that changes today! From here on out I am going to stick to a strict routine, and everyone gets to benefit from it. A couple of times a month I will be sharing my weekly meal plan with everyone. This will include every meal of every day, recipes, and pictures of the completed meals. So without further ado, here is to good eats!
- Eggs and Toast for Breakfast
- Spinach Salad (I buy my spinach salads remade from Walmart for $2)
- One Sheet Dinner (This week I’m going with a Chicken Sausage, Potatoes, Carrots, and Asparagus)
- Eggs and Toast
- Smoothie King (I’m a huge Smoothie King addict so twice a week for lunch I pick up a chocolate Slim and Trim, don’t worry its a full meal replacement!)
- Vegetarian Lentil
- Granola and Yogurt (If your looking for a thick yogurt with low sugar try Sigi’s. I buy mine at Target.)
- Left Overs. (I’m not a fan of left overs, but left overs are your friend. It will save you time and money so eat left overs!)
- Eggs and Toast (If you couldn’t tell by now eggs and toast are favorite of mine so we eat them a lot in this house. To mix things up add some cheese or bacon bits to your eggs.)
- Smoothie King
- One-Pot Burrito Bowl
- Oatmeal ( I like to eat oatmeal on Friday or Saturday mornings, this gives me a chance to eat any left over fruit in the fridge that might be ready to go bad.)
- Left Overs
- Home-made Pizza ( Pizza night doesn’t have to be boring. I like to buy our crust pre-made from the grocery store and go crazy with the toppings. Sometimes its pesto and parmesan other nights it can be roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic. And let your kiddos make their own pizza connections. Its always nice to have some extra helpers in the kitchen.)
- Granola and Yogurt
- Spinach Salad (The spinach salad’s I buy from Walmart have cranberries, parmesan, bacon bits, and balsamic dressing.)
- Eat Out (Don’t be afraid to treat yourself even when your meal planning.)
- Crepes (Every Sunday my husband is off, its crepe day. Saturday night before bed he’ll make the batter let it sit over night. Making the thinnest most delicious crepes you could ever want Sunday morning! And crepes don’t have to be fancy. Use any left over fruit in the fridge or your favorite preserve on them. Keep it simple!)
- Left Overs
- Chicken Tortgas (I love magazines and since I just got my Instpot, I couldn’t resist picking up a magazine dedicated to multi cookers. In this edition I came across this recipe for Chicken Torgas, that look absolutely amazing. And I can’t wait to try to out my new Instant. I’ll be sure to let you know how it works out.)
*Originally I was going to make meatloaf on Sunday, but my husband and I decided take the kiddos out for the day. So I decided to go with an Instant meal!
I have also included a link to Emma Loves who supplied me with a wonderful meal planner layout. I am completely in love with this meal planner. I am especially fond of the cut off grocery list.
