Meal Plan Monday – November 21 2016

When was the last time I even posetd one of these?! I mean, I’ve still been planning my meals every week, but I haven’t been sharing them with all of you!

We’ve been eating super healthy lately, like the healthiest EVER because of my gall stones, but that gall bladder is gone now (thank fully! 3 weeks post op and I feel fantastic!). So naturally we’ve fallen off the wagon a bit, now that I can eat more than 15g of fat at a time. But, the time has come to reel back in the take out and frozen nuggets and get back to cooking healthy meals from scratch that my family loves. Plus, cooking is fun again! My two oldest are getting very adventerous with what they are willing to try which takes away loads of stress, and the younger two usually leave me alone long enough so that I can cook a decent meal!

Here’s a peak at what we are eating this week:

Monday – casserole (ground beef, tomato sauce, carrots and zuchinni with whole wheat pasta)

Tuesday – tacos (with loads of lettuce and fresh tomato and avocado)

Wednesday – stir fry (Chicken breast, red peppers, broccoli, over rice)

Thursday – roasting tray (turkey sausges, potatoes, cauliflower)

Friday – baked lemony fish with rice and green beans

I only plan out our weekly dinners because my husband often cooks on the weekend. Breakfasts are simple for us so they don’t require much planning, you get either Cheerios, oatmeal, or yogurt with granola. Snacks are fruit or granola bars, and lunches vary from leftovers to eggs, or sandwiches and salad.

I’m thinking of doing a series on kids school lunches, so let me know in the comments if that’s something you struggle with and would like some tips. My kids can be picky when it comes to school lunches (the same kids who love 5 bean chilli and mussels won’t eat sandwiches at school!), so I’d love to share my tips and pictures of my kids packed lunches to help other struggling parents out. And if nothing more to maybe give you some new lunch ideas, since every kid eventually gets sick of their goto favourites!

Hope you guys have a great week, and don’t forget to plan your meals! It makes grocery shopping to much easier, helps keep your spending down if you plan your meals around the sales, and takes away the dreaded “whats for dinner?” each and every night.

And as always, I’m linking this post up over at Org Junkie, so if you need more dinner inspiration, that’s the place to go!
