Meal Plan - Week of July 8, 2019
Meal planning on here for the week of 7/1 was so much fun, I decided to do it again! I figured I would sometimes post and sometimes just do a quick plan on my Notes app but honestly, I loved referencing my own site throughout the prepping process! You can read my first meal plan post here for more details on how I actually decide to plan things out. Hope seeing these plans inspires you to try something new :)
Once I have everything listed out, I make my grocery list in Google Keep. From there, I also check our pantry and freezer inventory lists (also in Google Keep) and adjust as needed for items I will be using.
Week of July 8
Breakfasts - Sausage, Pepper, Onion & Spinach Egg Bake (for Matt) Random things around the house- smoothies, oats, etc. (for Brooke)
Monday Night Dinner - Steak Salads with Grilled Sweet Potato Fries
Meals - Matt needs 8 lunches/dinners to go. Brooke needs 4 lunches/dinners to go.
Banza Pasta with Meatballs, Marinara & Greens (make extra meatballs)
Turkey & Cheese Cabbage Roll Ups (with raw veg & fruit)
Cauliflower Tabbouleh from PaleOMG (over greens, with chicken)
A few notes…
*Matt takes his breakfasts to go and eats at work but I cook breakfast at home most mornings since my work day starts a bit later. I am not someone that likes to eat the same thing every day for the whole week! I always make sure to have a few proteins, greens, extra fruit etc. around the house for myself so I can make whatever I want in the moment :)
*Monday, July 8th isn’t included as part of the rest of the new “meals to make” section because Mondays are the only weeknight that I am actually home for dinner to make a fresh meal for us. It’s basically our at home date night and I try to make something special each week if I have time! Tuesdays through Thursdays I eat my dinner in the car in between my private music students (shameless plug for my company, Lessons By Brooke & Company - check us out!) This is definitely not an ideal, “rest and digest” way to eat, but this is life for me right now and I’m okay with that.
This is certainly more of a typical week for us than the week of July 1st! I think I answered any questions that may come up but please let me know if you want to know more :) Happy to help! This meal plan is just as much for you as it is for me :)
