Meal Planning

Now that I’m home all day every day, I’ve started planning healthy meals ahead of time. This way I can shop at the beginning of the week , get exactly what I need, and not eat the same thing or go out for every single meal. I highly recommend trying this if you are anything like me! It’s actually easier to be lazy this way because everything is already done!

Here is this week’s meal plan – mostly just the meals for me, but a few for both my boyfriend and I as well.

It’s important to keep your weekly schedule in mind. For example, Wednesday is the Fourth of July so we will probably hang out with friends instead of eating at home. Over the weekend, we are going to a picnic, so I planned on bringing pasta salad for that, but I didn’t plan other meals since we’ll probably be eating a lot at the picnic.

I find my meal planner here, but find one that works for you and your schedule! I found mine by searching “meal planner printable” on Pinterest. Super easy.

If I can meal plan and be organized, so can you! Let me know, do you meal plan? If so, how do you organize yours? Enjoy!

What I Ate Wednesday – February 15, 2017

I started off my day with a very small breakfast of a chocolate chip granola bar. Fun fact – a student of mine gave this to me as a random present a few weeks ago, so cute! Our school has lunch at 10:40 am (brunch?) so I usually have a small breakfast or else I’m not hungry at our lunch time.

For my lunch I had a bit of lemon pepper rotisserie chicken that is sold at Wegmans and mashed potatoes that I made this weekend in the crock pot. They were so easy to make and they turned out really good. I think I’ll be having mashed potatoes more often now! Sorry my picture isn’t very glamorous, but I really do eat my lunch out of a tupperware container on most days.

I usually have a snack and coffee when I get home from work, but since yesterday was Valentine’s day and today was out hundredth day of school celebration, I was exhausted and came right home to take a nap.

Dinner was pasta with pesto sauce and Brussels sprouts baked in the oven with olive oil, salt, and pepper. This meal is a staple for me! Not too hard to make and delicious!

Again, I was feeling very tired at night so I decided to not have a snack and just plop right into bed. Not a very interesting day of eating but I hope you enjoyed it anyway!
