Meal Plan 01/07/2019 - 01/11/2019

Listen, I see all you “resolutions are solutions and I don’t need to be solved!” people and I love you for it but I like to start the new year with a list of goals. I don’t strive for a 100% success rate, and I don’t beat myself up (too much) if I’m a complete failure, but I like the idea of starting a new year trying to make some new habits.

One of my goals for 2019 is to meal plan three weeks out of every month. My life seems to run smoother when I take the time to prepare the week’s meal plan ahead of time. I used to worry that meal plans would limit my imagination but there’s nothing wrong with a little routine, especially when everything else feels like it’s careening out of control.

So here I am. Back on my bullshit. The first meal plan of 2019.


Monday: Spaghetti bolognese served with green salad.

Tuesday: Coconut chicken curry served with roasted vegetables and coconut rice.

Wednesday: oven-roasted chicken shawarma with garlic sauce served with roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce.

Thursday: Black bean and sweet potato enchiladas served with lime crema and fresh guacamole (if my avocados cooperate).

Friday: leftovers? Pizza? Snacky dinner? I like to keep ‘em guessing.

What are you eating this week?
