Part of me wanted to be proven wrong with all the meal planning. I wanted to plan the meals and not notice a difference in the chaos of our evenings or the amount of food waste we produce. But…that is not the case. Meal planning and food prep are totally making life easier. It’s a lot of work on Sundays but then I don’t worry about what we’re eating for the rest of the week. It’s kind of awesome. It’s also holding me accountable to my vegetarian-meal-at-least-once-weekly goal which is pretty great.
Monday: Lentil Bolognese served over roasted broccoli for meatless Monday. I made the sauce today and just need to roast the broccoli tomorrow after work.
Tuesday: Chrissy Teigen’s Chunky Creamy Mushroom Soup with tuna melts. I made the soup today and just need to reheat it and make the sandwiches.
Wednesday: Change Your Life Chicken with sweet potatoes, red onions, and green beans.
Thursday: Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls served with some sort of green vegetable on the side.
Friday: Some sort of leftovers or snacky dinner situation.
What’s on your meal plan this week?
