In order to save money and consistently eat healthy, I have been trying to meal plan on Sundays and follow my plan throughout the week. So far, it’s been going really well. By Friday, I am usually ready to cheat a little and go out to get appetizers or order pizza 🙂 As a new way to keep my blogging consistent…I will try to blog on Sunday night or Monday morning about the meals I am planning for the week and then let you know how the meals taste later in the week. Sound good??
Here is this week’s plan:
Skinny Chicken Pesto Bake from http://www.skinnytaste.com. This was one of the easiest recipes! I ended up buying pesto because I don’t have a food processor, but the pesto recipe looks easy too. I served this with brown rice.
Leftover Chicken Pesto Bake. Because I bought a lot more chicken than we needed, I am going to have this again tonight. I plan to have some frozen veggies with dinner tonight.
Crock-pot chili also from http://www.skinnytaste.com. I work on Wednesday, so the crock pot is the easiest way to make sure I don’t get unmotivated to cook. This recipe looks really easy and delicious. I will let you know how it goes!
Probably leftover chili depending on how much is left!!
There’s a large possibility that we will go out for dinner or appetizers by Friday night. If not, I will probably use what we have to make a random dinner 🙂
The grocery list for this week was easy! Here it is:
**Organic chicken breasts
**Grated Parmesan cheese
**Chopped green chillies
**Ground turkey breast (I am using elk meat)
**Greek yogurt (plain, nonfat)
How do all of you meal plan?? Or are you more spontaneous?? I am a planner and like to have everything figured out for the whole week 🙂
