Hello everybody. Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals!
These past 2 weeks I have lost 5 pounds! I upped my water intake to about 6 glasses a day and switched out decadent chocolate ice cream for chocolate-flavoured frozen yoghurt. Surprisingly, it tastes just like ‘real’ ice cream! I tried very hard to cut out ice cream altogether and just couldn’t do it. The frozen yoghurt only has 100 calories per half cup which is enough to satisfy my ice cream cravings after supper.
Here’s this week’s menu:
Monday : Slow-Roasted Salmon and Potatoes. Carrots and broccoli. These potatoes are the only way I’m going to roast potatoes from now on!
Tuesday : Easy Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Spinach, Ricotta & Walnuts. Green Beans, Carrots.
Wednesday : Black Bean Veggie Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries
Thursday : Simple Mediterranean Olive Oil Pasta. This recipe is a regular around here. So simple and delicious. I sometimes substitute the artichoke hearts for mushrooms. Notice the words “easy” and “simple” are key words in this Blog 🙂
Friday : Date night!
Saturday : Kenyan Braised Collard Greens & Ground Beef, Rice
Sunday : Stirfry with Left over pork from last week’s roast pork.
