Weekly Dinner Plan – Week 2



I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week I tried to incorporate as many one-pan dishes as possible, and ones that take 30 minutes or less to make – less clean up and more time to have glass of wine (or two – red, of course) with my hubby before dinner 🙂

A meal plan is a great way to save money at the grocery store and solves the daily question “what’s for dinner.” My family loved our healthy meals last week and I lost 2 lbs – woo hoo! We changed our routine a little last week. I had a smoothie with a scoop of whey protein in it before heading to the gym for an hour – 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes resistance training. After the gym, I had a glass of chocolate soy milk and a bowl of healthy cereal. Or a poached egg on an English muffin with some smoked trout, 1/2 an avocado and salsa. Our lunches were either a salad or leftovers from the previous nights’ dinner.

Yesterday I declared it a “cheat day” and ate quite a lot of chocolate ice-cream, Irish Stew at our local pub followed by an Irish coffee. Today’s groceries included sorbet 🙂

I plan my dinners for the week on a Google spreadsheet, but you can use any note book or get a menu planning book here
