This past weekend has been crazy busy. We have had so much going on ad we did not get to our meal planning and prepping like normal and boy did we hate it! We just flow so much better when we are prepared and ready for the week.
Friday I helped a friend paint her condo. Saturday we cleaned house but I never made it to the store. Lots of little things that we got taken care of and then we had date night. Love Date Night!
Sunday we went to church then dropped off some fliers and then helped a friend move into her condo. Then went grocery shopping and came home and did meal prep. We were not going another week without it! Last week sucked without planning. Man, it didn’t take long for us to get into this routine. So here is our menu for this week. Again lots of these are foods that are on sale at Publix this week.
Our prep has become so much faster. Even after being out all day long we still got home and got our prep done. I love that we do this together. Makes it so much easier.
Recipes for this week.
Hope everyone has a great week. Keep on THRIVIN’!
Happy New Year!
The goal this year is fitness and nutrition. I am a believer you can change your life by diet and exercise. This is my new years resolution.
I don’t want to be skinny, I want to be fit. There is a huge difference! The last few months D and I have started meal planning and changing the way we eat to be a bit more “clean” – meaning less processed foods for us. While I know this isn’t the clean eating version some people have, it works for us. When I grocery shop, I shop the perimeter of the store more than the aisles. The goal is to eat natural growing and healthy foods and stay away from boxed and packaged processed foods. With that being said, I am also one of the worse and pickiest eaters ever! I am not adventurous with my meals at all and I don’t see that changing any time soon. So as I post our meal plans and grocery lists you will see that these meals are fairly simple. This also makes them very kid friendly which helps anyone who is cooking for a family.
This is the menu for this week. Each day comes out to around 1400 calories.
This is the shopping list and pricing for this week. I shop at Publix and this is the price for an entire week of food for our family (3 adults and 1 child). The items with no price are items that I had in the house already so I did not have to buy. Staples like seasoning and what not that I have on hand are not included in this list. When items are BOGO (buy one get one) I tend to stock up when I can. I buy frozen vegetables for dinners so they do not go bad in the fridge before I can use them.
Recipes to go with the menu.
We do meal prep for the week for breakfast and lunches. Dinners are made fresh every day.
