Wow! It’s been a while since I published a weekly meal plan.
Last night I sat and wrote up a lengthy explanation as to why. Something about having signed up for a 28 day detox and how my current meal plan didn’t fit the “allowed foods”, and that when finding new recipes it’s easier to do one week at a time. (And that I haven’t been planning enough meals each week because I can’t find enough ideas to fit the new extreme standards I am was trying to live up to. More on that later.) And then I babbled a bit about how busy I’ve been, working on promotions for the Ultimate Homemaking e-book bundle (Which ends today so go right now and get yours… I’ll wait…)
Okay, did you get your bundle?
So, back to what I was saying… lengthy explanation, yada, yada, yada…
But then I figured you don’t need all that.
You get it. I haven’t been successful with the meal planning lately. And it shows. Our evenings have been full of chaos, we’ve spent more money eating out, and we’ve eaten less healthy than if I had just made a meal plan based on the meals I’ve been cooking for ten years, regardless of whether or not they fit the new health standards. (Yes, some of them have wheat, and some of them have sugar, but all of them are better than what we’ll get if we go out.)
So I’ve learned my lesson and I’m back to the meal planning.
Here’s what we’re having this week. I’ll come back and share the recipes for the meals that I haven’t posted here yet.
And as usual, here are are few notes about my meal plan:
- My plans are flexible, things usually change as we go along. No worries; just rearrange as needed.
- Remember to consider your schedule when deciding which meals to serve on which nights. Assign quick or crockpot meals on those busy days, fun meals on Friday, etc.
- Come back often because I’ll try to add a post for anything I don’t currently have linked.
