Meals for the Week of March 15, 2021

I prioritized breakfast and having a easy to go snack for Bubba for daycare but other then that everything again was unplanned. I did a giant grocery haul at Trader Joe’s early Sunday morning that was packed with vegetables and fruit to get us through the week. In fact, I may have over bought because some of what I bought is overflowing into next week. Just goes to show you, it is best to meal plan so you don’t over buy and waste food.

Note on leftovers- most will tell you leftovers in the fridge are good for 4 days. It is a great rule of thumb! In our household, we inspect and smell the food, if all looks good we still eat it – but it is always reheated. You do what you are comfortable with!

Meals for the Week of March 8, 2021

I actually meal prepped this week!!!! It was minor but a little is better then nothing!

I did our grocery shopping on Saturday so I was able to meal prep early Sunday which I haven’t done since Liam was born. I was done by noon, with clean up too!

Meals for the Week of March 1, 2021

I am still in a place where I am not planning out our week but instead focusing on using what we have in the fridge or freezer (meats) and making sure we have snacks on hand for the little human who is a garbage pit these days (I hear it only gets worse).

So although you won’t see it reflected in the meals we ate, I did make some delicious, nutritious sourdough discard blueberry muffins which I’ll share below.

Meals for the Week of February 22, 2021

Our family: 2 adults, 1 toddler

Scope: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner (what is shown for breakfast and lunch is what I eat, I am not tracking my husband’s meals – but the goal every week is to use what we have so there is no waste)

This is going to be a quick run down of what we do. If you have questions or want to know specifics let me know in the comments. If I get enough demand I will start tracking things and sharing them.

Meals for the Week of February 15, 2021

ZERO meal planning and prep went into last week’s meals.

My patience, mood and energy greatly suffered from it. In a world where we are told to eat less and move more — it is complete bullshit. It is not that simple, for everyone!

When we don’t consume enough food to meet our energy and stress demands for the day we are left in an energy deficit which for most of us means you are pumping out stress hormones in order to stay afloat. This leaves you irritable, impatient, moody, and on edge. So although I did get meals together, they were on the light side and I definitely paid the price.

Oh and the little one was home with me all week since he had a runny nose so that’s another reason. MAMAS DO NOT CUT CALORIES! You need your energy to keep up with the energizer bunnies!
